Are Pistachio Fragrances the New Vanilla? Fragrance Trend Alert
Everyone is going nuts for Pistachio Fragrances right now, and that includes Carvansons HQ. We are all going a little nutty this spring and it’s not just the world of perfumery that is loving’ this little nut, with Pistachio working its way into supermarket trolleys.
So why are Pistachio Fragrances hot right now?
Once largely thought of as basic, Vanilla was the most-searched scented perfume in the last year and gourmand fragrance increased by 400 per cent. But in the last month, search interest for “pistachio perfume” reached a 10-year high.
So is it time you looked into this nutty fragrance?
What is a Nutty Fragrance and Why Create One?
Nuts are one of the most popular ingredients used in fragrances due to their unique aroma and versatility. The range includes almonds, pistachios, hazelnuts, walnuts, pecans and more. Each provides its own distinct flavour profile when added to a fragrance blend. Depending on which type of nut is used in a particular fragrance will determine how strong or subtle it will be within the finished product. Some nuts provide woody undertones while others may offer sweet notes that linger on the skin all day long. Different types of nuts can even be blended together for complex scents that are sure to turn heads!
Pistachio Fragrances and Finding the Right Nut
When creating your own nutty fragrance, it is important to understand the different types of nuts used in fragrances and how they will work together to create a unique scent. For example, combining almond with rosemary creates a sweet yet earthy scent while blending walnuts with lavender results in a more floral scent. Similarly, combining pistachios with jasmine provides a warm aroma while mixing cashews with sandalwood gives off an exotic smell. It is important to experiment with different combinations until you find the right balance for your desired fragrance. If you are looking to create an energising feeling then almonds might be the best choice due to their stimulating qualities. Conversely, walnuts provide a more calming effect due to their sedative properties. Additionally, if you want your fragrance to have an inviting quality then pistachios could be blended together with notes like vanilla or honey for sweetness or cinnamon and clove. Different nuts can be used depending on what kind of mood you’re trying to evoke through your scent profile.

Could Pistachio Fragrances create allergic reactions?
Now we won’t lie, when we saw the trend in Pistachio fragrances growing, this was one of the first thoughts that came to mind. So this all depends on the perfumery materials used to create the nutty scent. The scent of peanut butter spread on your toast in the morning belongs to a group of chemicals called pyrazines and these can be used in perfumery to give a nutty note. However, these chemicals won’t trigger an allergic reaction. For this to occur there has to be direct contact with the nut proteins.
We spoke to Anthony our Fragrance Evaluator to explain;
“We can formulate a fragrance that can give a nutty impression without the potential to cause reactions. Our team can help advise and develop fragrances that fit the fragrance brief yet are formulated to avoid these allergic reactions.”
This fragrance is fast becoming the go-to nutty scent and everyone has been getting everyone excited about it. And although it is definitely a nutty scent, there is much more about this fragrance that makes it a perfume that we are likely to see being popular for a while.
Amber in our creations department said;
“The name says it all, Yum! It’s a sweet but not too sweet gourmand fragrance. Think delicious whipped cream, fluffy marshmallows and a nutty blend of hazelnut and pistachio.”
