Do images of Carmen Miranda wearing every fruit in the world on her head or Chiquita Banana extolling her many charms and benefits flash before your eyes whenever you think of fruit?
Or do you secretly resent and/or talk back to the lyrics of Life Is Just a Bowl of Cherries? If you do, you may have problems far beyond the scope of this article, but then again, maybe you just like fruit!
In either case, your home is your castle, and it can be filled with the fragrances you love the most and that includes fruit-inspired scents available here at Home Fresheners.
It’s not so much that home owners actually want to walk around or live in a space that smells like the produce department of a favored supermarket, but rather that they appreciate a light billow of sweet-smelling fruit aromas because they inspire beauty, awe for Mother Nature’s bounty and affect appetite.
Fragrances with citrusy top notes form their own category in the world of perfumery and they are known to render aspects of lightness, freshness and succulence to a scent as well as dilute the thick sweetness of floral and fruity fragrances.
The smell of fruit is primal. Long before a child’s nose comes in contact with a flower, it has likely already met mashed banana and sweet orange.

Fruits also offer visual cues, as they represent the primary colors of the natural world. Fruit aromas also include berries, which are often used in household products such as detergents.
Since it is almost impossible to extract natural fragrance from fruits via distillation, synthetic fragrances recreate the scent with the help of chemical components and are found in profusion in perfumes, cosmetics, candles and room sprays
Fragrances for home care products replace odor molecules in the air with compounds such as esters thats smell like fruit and flowers.

Over time, fruit scents not only do not lose their popularity, but are increasingly gaining commitment to consumer tastes. Some popular fruit categories include the following:
Of all citrus blends used in ambient air care applications, bitter orange is the most favored because it has a more effective and pungent aroma than its sweeter counterpart.
The aroma of orange, both as a natural essential oil and a synthetic fragrance, has notes that are refreshing and retain a tinge of citrusy bitterness.
Citral is the main compound that gives citrus fruits their particular scent, and it is present in the oils of both lemons and limes. In fact, of all citrus, these two have the highest concentration of citric acid, (about 8 percent) of the fruit’s dry weight.
Lemon is sweet and acidic while limes, which contain less sugar and more acid, retain sharp, sweet and sour aspects.
A hybrid of lemon and orange is bergamot, an aroma made famous by its presence in flavored teas.
By itself, bergamot is sweet, but when combined with other perfume elements it renders a strangely tender bitterness and freshness.
The cherry accord is based on diverse compounds which include: benzaldehyde, which has an almond-like scent and is found in cherry pits.
Other organic components include: aldehydes, alcohols, esters acids and terpenes. Cherry is the inspiration for the flavor that is so prominent in sweets, liqueurs and cough syrups.
A paradoxical but highly effective addition to a fragrance as well, cherry elements are tart, deep and velvety, and they combine sweetness and sourness simultaneously.
Often used in unisex fragrances, when deployed in a home setting, the effect is a pleasant tangy cloud tinged with floral and fruity aspects.
Berry fragrance oils are typically used to make soaps, candles, room scents and bath and body products.
Nature’s endless bounty presents a multitude of berry types, many of which are found here in our fragrance refills section.
Black currant with its thick aroma is often used in scent creation especially in the middle notes.
Mulberry, which is usually combined with citrus, cinnamon, and red berries, is a favored blend in a myriad of products.
Fresh honey-like blueberry, strong, pungent huckleberry, woodsy, sweet and fresh juniper berry and tangy, woody raspberry are just a few of the many berry types that are formulated into products for the modern home.
Rich, bright and creamy, coconut is the epitome of the exotic fragrance.
The scent derives form the pulp of the fruit (the white lining) and the liquid inside the coconut.
Precious in the world of perfumery, there are fewer fragrances that can evoke dazzling sunsets, pristine beaches and shimmering lagoons more vividly than the aroma of coconuts.
When used in the average home, coconut can transform any room in a home into a tropical nirvana.
Sweet and aromatic, when added to perfume or room spray, grape renders a layer of elegance and luxury.
This sugary scent is marked by slightly tart and sour nuances, and is reminiscent of the aroma associated with Kool-Aid.
Grapes are becoming more popular today, and their unmistakable aroma can be found in many room sprays and scented products.
The following ambient fragrances were created by our master perfumers and were designed to work within any home or business setting.
