A list of perfumes containing immortelle, helichrysum, everlasting flower


I am going to be working heavily with a certain raw material named immortelle absolute over the next few months, so I have been doing my research on it. In perfume it is a raw material that has been described as having the following characteristics: straw-like, dusty, syrupy, burnt. I find the odour to be somewhat similar to sweet fenugreek. It is used primarily in Chypres and Orientals. In medicine the flowers are used to make an infusion for the treatment of gall bladder disorders, as a diuretic. It is commonly used as an herbal tea used for medicinal purposes in the Middle East and Mediterranean regions.
It has been used in quite a few perfumes to date, so I will try and publish as complete a list as I can as I will be sniffing all of them shorty :)

Hi, I just found your blog after searching for info about Guerlain Heritage. I've been exploring immortelle myself recently and am coming to really enjoy this note. Today I wore Parfum D'Empire Fougère Bengale and it has an excellent immortelle note throughout even though that isn't a listed note.

Others that have immortelle as a note:

Many women love the scent of a perfume. It brings joy to the one using it and adds charms as well. Many choices of fragrances are available. It is up to the customer to buy a scent that suits to his/ her style. It is also consider an ideal gift for women especially this coming Valentines Day.
