Our Three Favorite Cardamom Colognes3 min read
From trailing the great Silk Road to becoming a master chefs’ secret ingredient, cardamom’s warm, spicy, resinous aroma has always been loved for its grounding effects. Pairing exceptionally well with all other elements, it’s our go-to note for fall cozyness.
Cardamom has been used in perfumery and culinary arts for centuries, thanks to its spicy and woody undertone scent. Historic scripts mention the breathtaking cardamom flowers as the main centerpiece in the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Even Cleopatra found the cardamom scent undeniably sumptuous, so she would light a cardamom incense every time she welcomed Mark Antony in her chambers. Together with saffron and vanilla, cardamom is on the list of world’s most expensive spices.
Cardamom lends every fragrance a warm, intriguing quality that’s clearly displayed in these three colognes:
An unexpected and very addictive contrast between exotic vanilla and the warmth of the cardamom note, Select Night stays true to its nocturnal, bold name.
Cardamom and patchouli bring on the heat right from the start, while bergamot and orange blossom engage in a pillow talk, revealing the undercurrents of the cologne’s hidden softness.
