Lilac (Syringa vulgaris): Fragile flowers, such as lilac, only render their delicate scent through low yield extraction techniques, something that has virtually disappeared in modern society, sacrificed for more profitable methods, notably the use of synthetic replacements. Nevertheless, lilac extraction is being revived by ecologically-minded individuals across the globe, from Bulgaria to USA, whose efforts are rewarded by the magical aura that emanates from its scent, penetrating right into the soul.
Tonka Bean (Dipteryx odorata): Native to Latin America, where they are mostly grown by rural households, Tonka beans have a magical vanilla-like, caramelized biscuit scent, prized in perfumery and gastronomy. They add an exquisite, unmistakable touch bringing new depths to a composition.
Agarwood (Aquilaria agallocha): Reputed to be the most expensive wood in the word, Agarwood (Oudh in Arabic) is formed as a result of parasitic intervention on the tree. While the trees have become scarce, especially in India, thankfully replanting efforts have been successful. The Agarwood scent has been revered throughout the Orient since time immemorial, and used in Arabic perfumery as a signature scent. It is powerful and pervasive, with the tiniest amount being quite perceptible. Often reserved for male fragrances, NadiaZ now ingeniously blends it to infuse women’s perfumes with mystery and character.
Tuberose (Polianthes tuberosa): A night-blooming plant related to Agave and native from Mexico, it is being cultivated in India, France and other countries in the world since the 16th century for its fragrant waxy white flowers. Its scent is unmistakably carnal, powdery and creamy.
Vetiver (Vetivera zizanioides): A tall perennial scented grass mainly cultivated in the tropics – in India, Tahiti, Java and Haiti – it bears a woody, sweet, oriental, almost tobacco-like aroma, depending from where it is sourced. Production in Haiti provides much needed income to its impoverished population.
Omumgorwa Resin (Commiphora tenuipetiolata): Traditionally used as a perfume called Omove and as a soap by the Himba people in Namibia known for their reverence to beauty and the incredible care they provide to their skin while living under harsh weather conditions, this resin only forms after after a tree has died naturally and is thus sustainably harvested. Its smell between candied date and freshly made caramel is just amazing.
Strawberry Gum (Eucalyptus olida): This Eucalyptus specie only found in Australia is endangered in the wild. The oil produced from its leaves unlike any other varieties actually smells like candy or a mix between Strawberry, Banana and Cinnamon. NadiaZ supports cultivation and reintroduction initiatives and the valorization of its rare essence in the perfume industry.
