When you hear the word, "truffle" or "truffle oil", you might immediately think of delicious and expensive food. Truffles have been a culinary delicacy for truffles, but surprisingly, truffle also adds to be a beautiful ingredient when used in perfume. Black truffle extract is also one of the most sought-after ingredients in the world for not just food but in perfume as well.
Truffle in Perfume
Truffles have been prized for thousands of years. In fact, in Ancient Rome, people had believed that truffles were created by lightning. The black truffle (sometimes called a black perigord) is harvested in late autumn in the Perigord region of France.
Add a bit of black truffle oil to any dish and immediately you'll sense the rich aroma it brings. The smell loved by people for ages it's not surprising that the perfume industry has adopted ways to incorporate it into perfume.
BLACK TRUFFLE PERFUMES
There are very few fragrances that feature black truffle oil in them, mostly because of the exclusivity of the ingredient. However, if you're interested in experiencing the aroma of black truffle in a perfume your best option would be Black Orchid or ALT.'s cheaper alternative, Truffle.
Truffle features deep and heady base notes of black truffle, perfectly balanced with bergamot, and jasmine. This combination creates a zesty and slightly bitter aroma that creates a sense of exoticism.
Undoubtedly a truffle based perfume is an after-hours scent for the evening time. (Be aware Truffle is not best suited for the office unless you're trying to attract someone of course.)
