Still Trending: Cherry
When Tom Ford launched Lost Cherry in 2018 we knew we would start to see cherry notes trending in fragrance and candle. Brands like Escada, KAYALI, and Pacifica all launched cherry fragrances, and we thought the note was fizzling out. But the 2022 launch of Electric Cherry and Cherry Smoke showed us that cherry was just getting started.
Traditionally, cherry notes often presented as sweet and juvenile, the vibe was playful and young. While that's charming and fun, the fragrance world has seen a shift towards more mature and complex interpretations of cherry.
Enter a new era of perfumery and we see bold, smoky, and woody cherry interpretations becoming a niche twist on the classic. These new renditions of cherry are not just an evolution; they're a revolution in olfactory artistry. New plays on cherry embrace the fruit's inherent richness and depth, infusing it with layers of depth that add a mysterious, almost enigmatic quality to the fragrance. This combination of sweet, woody, and smoky is not just a blend; it's a balance, a dance of contrasting notes that intrigue and entice.
Recent launches from YSL and Voluspa display how perfumers are experimenting with various elements like tobacco, leather, and woody notes to complement the cherry's sweetness. These elements contribute a rugged, almost raw counterpoint to the fruit's natural sugariness, creating a scent profile that's as complex as it is captivating. The result is a fragrance that's multifaceted and rich, appealing to those who seek a scent that's both familiar and daringly different.
As we continue to witness the evolution of scents and the creativity of perfumers, grown up versions of cherry stand out as a testament to the industry's ability to reinvent and reimagine. From its sweet and playful origins to its current smoky and complex profile, cherry proves that even the most familiar scents can be transformed into something extraordinarily sophisticated. Whether you're a long-time cherry lover or a newcomer to this trending aroma, these new evolutions of cherry notes promise a sensory experience that's as rich and nuanced as the fruit itself.
