Obtained from the inner bark of several trees belonging to the genus Cinnamomum, the aroma of Cinnamon is warm, spicy and musky. In Egypt this spice was imported as early as 2000 BC and in ancient Greece it was used as temple incense, filling sacred spaces with a rich spicy aroma.
Featured in both men’s colognes and women’s perfumes, Cinnamon notes give smooth blends a sweet yet spicy spark. Perfumes such as Boudoir by Vivienne Westwood has a rich heart of cinnamon, while colognes like Jazz by Yves Saint Laurent will make you feel the rhythm and the pulsating beat of dark basement bars where the drinks and dancing flow well into the wee hours using cinnamon.
Also used in aromatherapy for many years, cinnamon invigorates, refreshes and defies feelings of depression and despair.
