It's a sweet scent, sweet but not cloying, refreshing and soothing. In the east it is often used for flavoring the tea and in perfumes the note of osmanthus is often combined with that of the drink.
Osmanthus is also a complex perfume, with a thousand facets. It has floral-fruity scents, it recalls the scent of apricot and has a background that brings back to a soft and caressing leather, the suede to be precise.
In perfumery, osmanthus is a note particularly dear to Jean-Claude Ellena, who dedicated two of his most beautiful compositions to this delicate flower.
