If you enjoy the refreshing taste of frozen lemon sorbet in summer with its tart and sweet flavour, you are going to love this global perfumery trend. Lemon sorbet has become one of the most important global scent trends of 2024. But what exactly is a lemon sorbet accord and how does it differ from tradition lemon essential oils?

In the world of perfumery, sorbet accords give off a sparkling, fruity sensation recalling the refreshing flavours of icy fruit sorbets. Sorbet-flavoured fragrances leave a sweet, gourmand trail that perfectly balances the tart taste of citrus fruit with the sweetness of cane sugar or honey. It’s meant to evoke the beloved frozen desserts you enjoy in the middle of summer.

What makes a sorbet accord different from a lemon note is the added sweetness and the frosty facet. Perfumers will often add green notes like mint, coriander, verbena or basil to reproduce the icy effect. Milky notes like vanilla, coconut or milk can sometimes be added to make the accord smell more indulgent.

In the Middle Ages, sorbet gained popularity in Europe as a treat for the nobility and royalty. It was special because only the very wealthy could afford the cost of the fruit, sugar and spices used in the recipe. The word ‘sorbet’ came from the Italian phrase ‘sorbetto’, a frozen, sweetened and flavoured dessert. To be classified as a true sorbet today, the recipe must contain 25% fruit, sugar and water without cream or milk. (It’s naturally low in fat.)

One of the best examples of a lemon sorbet accord can be found in the new Moschino Toy 2 Pearl fragrance, a refreshing aquatic-floral fragrance for her or him, that is constructed around this accord. The addition of freesia and jasmine adds a beautiful floral facet that is anchored with cypress.

Key ingredients: lemon heart, lemon sorbet accord, hydroponic living jasmine, oregano, vetiver, sand accord, freesia, cypress, musk

If you enjoy light, fresh fragrances, one with lemon sorbet accord would be ideal for you. It isn’t too strong or overwhelming.
