Mark Earnshaw, Fragrance Expert at FAB Creations tips Rhubarb as the hottest note for spring.
 
How is rhubarb transformed into a fragrance note? The rhubarb note is an accord made of different ingredients. It varies from Perfumers to Perfumers. For example, in the case of the brand new L.K. Bennett fragrance, Signature, the nose used a combination of raw material to focus on the fruity and juicy character of Rhubarb.

How would you describe the note – is it fresh, sweet, musky? The rhubarb note is fresh with a fruity facet.

Has it been used in fragrances previously? Rhubarb has been very trendy in Fine Fragrance in the last couple of years, this season we will see it used by a wider array of brands.

How did you discover it as a note and what drew your nose towards it? This note has been part of the Perfumers palette for years now even though it hasn’t been widely used until the last couple of years. It has a refreshing olfactive profile but it’s at the same time very complex. The fruity part of the note is what drew us in.

Is it used as a top, heart or base note? And why? It can be used as a top or middle note depending on the Perfumer interpretation. In our case it is used as a top note as the Perfumer wanted to focus on the fruity aspect with a grapefruit facet. It could be used in middle note if the creator wants more of a heavy/earthy note.

What other notes do you predict to be big for Spring 2018? We’ve identified Black Rice and other rice notes, Peruvian Cherry, honey and honeyed fruits, frozen fruits and sorbets, new greenness from pandan leaf and shiso leaf. Modern woods with fresh incense, leather and pepper.
