Vanilla and Its Use in Perfumes

Vanilla, with its sweet and relaxing fragrance, is one of the most used components in perfumes. Perfumes containing vanilla are close to the oriental perfume family when evaluated together with other elements used in perfume. The fact that it tastes good and its smell has made vanilla an additive that is added to many foods and beverages. Vanilla is also known to have aphrodisiac properties.

Vanilla, which is often used mainly in cakes and desserts, is one of the indispensable cuisines. The area of use of vanilla, which has a fascinating effect with its inviting smell and exquisite taste that remains on the palates, has expanded over time. This beautiful spice has started to be used in shampoos, creams, or even air perfumes.

Other Information About Vanilla

The vanilla aroma and vanilla extract are not the same, and it is unnecessary to mix the two. Since there is no apparent regulation on the use of names in the sale of such products, it is necessary to pay attention to the vanilla package's contents. In the vanilla extract, which is called fabricated, there should be no substance other than sugar, alcohol, water, and vanilla.

Vanilla sugar and sugary vanillin are not the same things. Vanillin is the main ingredient that gives off the scent of vanilla. Sugary vanillin is the name of an industrial product. It would not be wrong to say vanilla imitation for this product. It is derived entirely from a substance called lignin by chemical means. It is often preferred in industrial production, as its smell is similar to vanilla and is extremely economical.

Use of Vanilla in Perfumes

The vast majority of vanilla used today is obtained synthetically. Because it is very trying to get natural vanilla, its cost is also very high. Vanilla grows in places close to the equatorial climate belt, such as South America, Indonesia, Madagascar. Vanilla, which is mainly used in women's perfumes, is rarely used in men's perfumes. I have listed below the most well-known of women's and men's perfumes containing vanilla.
