Cassis

Fragrance Families: fruity, green
Characteristics: sweet, juicy, energetic
Fragrance Examples: The Vagabond Prince – Enchanted Forrest

A blackcurrant based liqueur of a syrupy consistency, most of which are made in Burgundy. The aroma is very tangy, containing subtle but firm hints of ammonia. Cassis is a synthetic substance, often compared to its organic cousin, the blackcurrant bud absolute known as “bourgeons de cassis”, although the two differ in that cassis is noticeably richer, deeper, and more complex.

It is often seen as an ingredient in “cat-themed” fragrances, for the cat reminiscences the ammonia hints inspire.
