The springtime allure of the hyacinth

Hyacinth is a bulb plant that heralds the long-awaited arrival of spring. Easy to maintain, it is a delight for gardeners and enhances the interior as well as the exterior of our homes. This bulbous plant belongs to the genus Hyacinthus and the family Hyacinthaceae. She is originally from the Mediterranean and in particular from Turkey, the Middle East and Central Asia. Hyacinth is characterized by its star flowers gathered in the form of a dense and very fragrant cluster. Endowed with multiple colors, it is found just as much in tones of pink, red, yellow, orange, white as blue. Hyacinth is a perennial plant that enchants gardens from March to May. However,it is also possible to force its flowering in winter and to enjoy its flowers indoors at Christmas time. Already present in mythology, this plant was known to the Greeks and Romans. Likewise, there are many representations of it on Persian and Turkish miniatures. Later, it was introduced to the Netherlands, towards the end of the 16th century. However, it was not until the 17th century that it became one of the most popular ornamental plants, like the tulip. In reality, this enthusiasm was mainly aroused by Madame de Pompadour, who flooded the gardens of Versailles with it. Today, the hyacinth is, in the language of flowers, synonymous with love and loyalty.this plant was known to the Greeks and Romans.

Hyacinth in our perfumes

The hyacinth is a flower that is far from silent. Indeed, its smell is particularly persistent and it is therefore logical that it invites itself to the heart of our essences. Its aromas are obtained by extraction with volatile solvents. Nevertheless, the scent of hyacinth is more and more often reconstituted in an artificial way by perfumers. This is endowed with multiple scent qualities. Indeed, it delivers a green, floral and vegetal scent. What is more, it is an excellent fixer and increases the hold of the essences which contain it. Nevertheless, hyacinth requires an excellent mastery of the art of perfumery because, when it is too heavily dosed, it can quickly become aggressive.

In general, hyacinth is more suitable for feminine scents. She is thus present in Chance or Christalle by Chanel, Chamade by Guerlain, Silk stockings by Serge Lutens or Anaïs Anaïs by Cacharel.
