Did you know that the world of spirits and perfumery are intimately linked? 

In this article, Le Studio des Parfums explains the synergy between these 2 worlds. 

Spirits are used to complement the perfumed notes, to better assimilate the blend and balance of the notes. Perfumers also use them for their warm character and enchanting. Spirits have unique olfactory properties. This is particularly the case with whisky and rum. They add a spicy, woody and warm nuance to the fragrances, creating a more captivating composition. Strong alcohols also contribute to the fragrance's staying power.  

Origins and history

The first drinks are thought to have appeared in China 7,000 BC. The term spirit comes from the Latin "spiritus” qui corresponds to distillation. Initially, this term referred to the soul of the alcoholic beverage 

Spirits fall into two broad categories: eaux de vie (based on alcoholic fermentation and maturation) and spirit drinks bitters, aniseed-flavoured drinks and flavoured drinks.
