    De Laire produced two orchid bases, Orchidée №s 1 & 2. Fraterworks Orchidée № 2 is a restoration of the latter — the more floral and historically more popular and widely used base. Orchids are generally odourless and in perfumery circles the term is commonly used to refer to clover (treflé) or salicylate based fantasy aromas. Orchidée is no exception. Rich with natural floral absolutes, aldehydes and luxurious musks, this is a top to bottom base that can be used alone as a wonderful fragrance, or as part of a new fragrance.

    Usable in large quantities (up to 29% of your finished product), Orchidée is a perfect alternative to the far more common heart note synthetics (hedione and the like) around which most modern fragrances tend to be built. For a touch of je ne sais quoi, look no further than Fraterworks Orchidée.

    Appearance: Deep gold liquid
    Longevity: Lasts > 48 hours on a smelling strip

    General Information

    Like most suppliers and makers of quality raw materials for fragrances, we do not filter many of our products. This ensures that no odiferous matter is lost prior to use but can result in the appearance of small particles or slight clouding.

    All alcoholic fragrances should be macerated for up to a month and then chilled in a moderate freezer overnight before being filtered fine. This will remove all cloudiness or detritus and is the industry norm.

    IFRA Standards

    Permitted amounts in finished product:

    IFRA 51: 29%
    IFRA 49: 29%

    These are derived from calculated concentrations which do not replace chromatographic quantification on individual lots. Disclaimer...

    Label Requirements

    Ingredients may need to be listed as per your local legislation based on data found in the EU allergens report.

    Additional Requirements

    No additional labelling requirements.

    For Trade Use Only

    Our products are intended as building blocks in the perfume creation process; they are not to be applied to the skin undiluted.

    These raw materials are for use by the perfumery trade only.

    Jamie had warned me that this was not based on any actual orchid, but I still imagined it would smell like some glorious heady cattleyas that can smell like a perfume in themselves. Of course he was right, this base does not smell like an actual orchid. It is a complex aldehidic floral with gravitas. Smelling it I was filled with nostalgia. I don't know if it reminded me exactly of a vintage perfume in my scent memory or rather of the quality, detail, and beauty that we used to experience in our world. I am very grateful for artists such as Jamie who maintain and create these experiences of awe and beauty. These are the things that make us human.
