Which raw materials should you be looking for depending on what you need
Scents have an effect on us, they can boost our energy, help us relax, make us feel good, take us back in time, etc. Despite not having been scientifically proved, the fact is that certain fragrances influence our mood and emotions.
Fragrances have the power to awake our senses. Furthermore, there are smells that can bring us back old memories: the perfume of our mother, the detergent with which clothes were washed at our house when we were children, the jasmine that used to be at our home town gardens, etc.
As we have said in previous posts, the sense of smell is connected to the part of the brain that processes emotions. Hence the influence of smells on our feelings.
You might be wondering, then, how to use fragrances to promote different sensations. Let us give you some advice. But, keep in mind that the fragrance world is as wide and subjective as humans are. So, there are scents that have different effect depending on the person.
Energy and productivity
Do you want to feel energetic and productive? There are certain raw materials used to create fragrances that can boost your energy and productivity. So, when looking for a perfume, body lotion or body wash the fragrance of which energizes you, search for ingredients such as sea salt, sea minerals, algae, lemon and citric notes, in general. They can help you to feel charged.
If what you need is to relax after a stressing day at work, you should be looking for fragrances that contain raw materials like lavender, jasmine or peppermint. What about a lavender bath essence or a candle with a jasmine scent? Give it a try and see what effect these fragrances have on you.
When feeling emotional, cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla, rose, or the perfume of a beloved one can have a lovely effect on your feelings! Also, sandalwood notes can boost sensuality and desire. It is just up to you!

Floral fragrances are some of the favourite ones during this season
Spring is well-known to be a season where our senses are especially sensitive, where emotions are felt with more intensity than in other seasons. It is a magical time of year, in which many flowers bloom and green landscapes replace brown ones. It’s the right period for floral fragrances which are actually the favourites during this season.
Forsythias, azaleas or cherry blossoms are some of the flowers blooming in spring. However, there is one flower that takes the lead role in this season. It is a beautiful one, commonly used for romantic purposes and also widely used in perfumery. Can you guess which one is it? Yes, that is right, it is the rose.
There are different rose´ species, up to 100! Among them we find Damascus Rose or Rosa Damascena. Damascus Rose is a rose hybrid. Native of Iran, it was carried to Syria, and then brought from Damascus to all Europe. Damascus roses only bloom thirty days each year. Besides, the blossoms are still picked manually, and the picking is always a race against the sun as these roses have to be picked before sunrise.
Furthermore, Rosa Damascena is very well considered by its enchanting scent and also associated to health benefits. It is believed this type of rose has got anti-aging properties as well as a positive effect on the treatment against anxiety or stress. Actually, Damascus Rose is not only used to create perfumes but also to produce essential oils and cosmetics.
There is also another type of really famous rose called Centifolia Rose. The so-called Rose of the Hundred Leaves or Rose de Mai originates from the Caucasus although it is cultivated mainly in Morocco, and other countries with smaller production: Italy, the Balkan republics and Tunisia. Centifolia Rose blooms from 20 to 25 days in May. Its harvest is so splendid that, if in the morning its flowers are plucked, the next day they are again in full bloom.
Centifolia Rose along with Rosa Damascena are two of the rose types more used in perfumery. Their intense scent is much valued, not only for feminine fragrances but also in masculine and infantile perfumes.
No doubt why spring is the time of floral fragrances, fresh scents which make us feel energetic and relaxed in equal parts, scents which have a pleasant effect on our mood.
At Eurofragance, we explore the senses. We work with new types of perfumed textures that trigger surprising sensations. The main goal is always the same: to capture sensations for our unique fragrances to provide consumers with wellness and happiness.
Let spring scents captivate your senses!
What do we know about the philosophy behind Feng Shui and the role of fragrances on it?
Feng Shui is a philosophical method coming from China and consisting of harmonizing the environment that surrounds us so this environment has got a positive effect on ourselves and our visitors.
This method is usually practiced in different places: houses, offices, buildings, etc. Furthermore, the well-known five elements are essential for Feng Shui: water, metal, earth, fire and wood. They represent nature`s energy.
According to Feng Shui, the way we organize furniture, decoration and rooms -either at home, office or buildings- has got an effect on our mood and wellbeing. So, it is time to re-think how we dispose different objects in our surrounding environments.
You might be wondering what fragrances have to do with Feng Shui. Well, the scents we choose for our personal space or our company`s offices are also important to create pleasant atmospheres, rooms where we feel relaxed, we feel good. We have previously talked about the power of fragrances to create unique atmospheres. Hence, the value that fragrances add to the practice of Feng Shui.
Some scents have a pleasant effect on us, boost our energy, make us relaxed…Imagine then a room where everything is just in the right place and where the air is fragranced with scents like jasmine, lavender, peppermint, lemon or rose, depending on your emotions and your taste.
It is actually common that specific fragrances have an effect on our mood, on our feelings and emotions. This leads us to a practice called aromatherapy, which is based on the belief that various natural scents have an intrinsic ability to influence mood, cognition and health. For example, jasmine is used to relieve anger, increase confidence, ease depression and as aphrodisiac while lavender is good to relax and peppermint is best for relieving stress.
Are you ready to improve your wellbeing by practicing Feng Shui along with aromatherapy? Have a look at your surrounding environment, what would you change? Now, smell the room you are in. Do you like the scent or you would rather choose another air freshener?
At Eurofragance, our perfumers, fragrance evaluators, sensorial marketing teams and technical application experts work together to design the perfect fragrance combination for a welcoming environment.
Expertise, creativity, passion and technology are key to create fragrances for products such as air fresheners, candles, detergents, softeners…The main purpose: to offer wellbeing through our fragrances.
Because wellness starts at our surrounding environment.
“There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort” – Jane Austen
The British novelist Jane Austen said on her time: there is nothing like staying at home for real comfort. Our home is our shelter, where we rest after an intense workday, where we seek relief after a bad day or where we find the peace that some emotional conflicts can steal.
The daily feelings and sensations are essential to our well-being and happiness. And, there are small details, as always, that make a difference. For this reason, choosing the right perfume for our house can create unique atmospheres which give us good vibes when we get home.
The air freshener we choose for our home defines our personality, affects our emotions and can convey to our visitors what kind of person we are. The chosen fragrance depends on what you need in your home and what scents you like: nature, flowers, spices, fruit … or simply “clean smell”.
At Eurofragance we create home fragrances in all formats: solid, spray, to be burned, water-based, paraffin, gel, transparent and electrical. Of course, our Home Care department works closely with each client, studying their needs and analysing those perfumes that public wants and needs for their house.
We have fragrances development teams in different creative centres of Asia, Middle East, America and Europe. From Singapore, Dubai, Mexico and Barcelona our employees can study markets, culture, lifestyles of each area of the planet. This provides a unique knowledge of the tastes and needs of consumers around the world.
We interpret and analyse trends and we also test several scents to add maximum value to each client´s brand. Result comes as: air fresheners that enchant, captivate and generate comfort and happiness to very different publics.
