CPL Aromas, the world’s largest fragrance-only fragrance house, has launched a new fragrance as part of its unique AromaSpace technology collection: Matcha AromaSpace. As of now, the material is available exclusively to CPL Aromas’ perfumers, for use with their customers

The leading fragrance maker has sites in the UK, USA, France, Dubai, Germany, Turkey, Hong Kong, Colombia, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, South Korea, Vietnam, Taiwan, Australia and Spain. This latest offering reiterates their expertise when it comes to offering innovative fragrance solutions.
The technical details
Scent and emotion are intrinsically linked. It is also an established science that nature has a positive effect on our wellbeing. Natural fragrances can evoke childhood memories and bring you joy, calm you or excite you, bring you into focus and in general improve your day. To bring some of the most fragrant aromas from Nature into our everyday life without destroying their source, is a priority at CPL Aromas - they have been pursuing this since the 1990s. But now the company is bringing the technology one step further, by combining it with its Perfumers’ expertise to create a unique set of perfume bases.
The AromaSpace technology is a perfect combination of the work of CPL Aromas’ analytical team and its perfumers. The analysts interpret the data from multiple techniques to produce a detailed chemical composition of the original scent. This skeleton formulation is compounded & adjusted to recreate the odour of the source material, and often gaps are found, as components are unavailable or not safe to use. Taking the analysis as a starting point, CPL perfumers use their expertise to fill these gaps transforming the raw data into a fragrance.
The mesmerising Matcha
In particular, the new Matcha AromaSpace replicates the fragrance of the green tea leaves of Camellia sinensis. It has top notes of roasted cocoa bean, with a herbal note of mate leaf. It has a green floral heart with notes of jasmine and green tea. The base note is sweet with notes of hay and tonka bean. Matcha makes the heart of a fragrance richer with its floral note of tea leaf and jasmine, reinforcing white floral notes and bringing a naturality thanks to its green leafy herbaceous note.

Here are a few fragrances that have Matcha as a key ingredient
The Matcha 26
Eau de Parfum by Le Labo
This perfume is a beautiful example of using Matcha tea accord infused with a creamy fig note, grounded by soft vetiver and textural cedar woods which is subtly uplifted by enticing bitter orange. Introverted and deep by nature, The Matcha 26 is a skin scent. It carries a noble stillness more like a scented reminder of home, of welcomed solitude, and of all things familiar that are treasured memories.
Notes : Fig, Matcha Tea, Cedar, Bitter Orange, Vetiver
Daisy Eau So Fresh Spring by Marc Jacobs
Fruity, bubbly and absolutely fun, daisy eau so fresh is a must-have floral fragrance for women by marc jacobs. Launched in 2011, it is designed to transport you to a field of sunshine that is filled with the flirty scent of flowers and the cheerful sweetness of fruits.
