Honeysuckle Style Perfumes
The TubularWonder of Honeysuckle
Honeysuckle has a strong alluring scent, heady and nectarous, a little like Jasmine tinged with Vanilla. As a child sucking on the sweet nectar of the flowers was a favourite summer past-time.
Over a hundred species of honeysuckle exist and among the most fragrant are the wild English honeysuckle (Lonicera caprifolium) the Japanese honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica) and Lonicera fragrantissima, which comes originally from China. In perfume it can enhance a touch of Aniseed, blend romantically with other white florals – Orange Blossom and Jasmine – or add a fresh green note.
