What Does Geranium Smell Like?

In perfumery, geranium offers a multifaceted experience; it’s at once floral and green, with a peppery, citrusy undertone. This complexity makes it a chameleon of sorts, capable of adding a rosy freshness or a sharp, minty edge depending on its concentration and the composition of the fragrance. 

This dynamic nature of fragrances with geranium lends a certain vivacity and brightness, elevating the overall scent profile with its masculine-leaning floral bouquet.

Complementing Notes

The diverse scent profile of geranium pairs excellently with a wide range of notes, allowing for creations that are both intriguing and harmonious.

  • Citrus notes: Enhance its zesty, bright side.
  • Rose: Amplifies the floral aspect, adding depth and romance.
  • Mint: Highlights its cool, refreshing undertone.
