Behind Your Favorite Fragrances

At FOOPE, we believe that every spritz of perfume tells a story—a story woven from the finest essences of nature, artistry, and scientific innovation. If you've ever wondered how a simple fragrance can evoke strong emotions or resurrect distant memories, you're in for a delightful olfactory journey.

What Goes into Your Perfume?


Perfume making is an age-old art form that balances delicate creativity with precise science. It starts with inspiration, a mood, a fleeting moment in time that we wish to capture in a bottle. Perfumery is a symphony. It has a beginning, middle and end. This inspiration leads us to choose our 'notes'—similar to a musician selecting the notes for a symphony.

  1. Top Notes: These are the initial scents that greet you, often light and refreshing. Think of the resilient vibrancy of aromatic citrus in our bold IBERE fragrance, designed to represent freedom and the joy of making your own rules.
  2. Middle Notes: Also known as heart notes, they are the core of the perfume's narrative. In our IFE fragrance, the sweetness and joy of beautiful rose and waterlily offer strength and confidence, painting an olfactory portrait of true love.
  3. Base Notes: These are the finale, the lasting impressions. For instance, our 3910 fragrance envelops you in the intense force of amber woods and a warm Kashmir fusion, creating a mysterious and enveloping sensation that lingers.

The Science Behind the Scents


The creation of perfume is not just about selecting the right notes; it's about understanding how they interact with each other and with the skin of the wearer. It involves a lot of chemistry and experimentation. At FOOPE, our perfumers — also known as 'noses' — are akin to alchemists, blending raw materials in precise measures to craft scents that are harmonious and evoke the desired emotions.

From Botanicals to Bottle


Our commitment to quality at FOOPE means we source only the finest raw ingredients. Our Jasmine Sambac comes from the sunlit fields of Grasse, and our sandalwood is sustainably sourced from lush Australian forests. This dedication ensures that each bottle of FOOPE perfume not only smells exquisite but also tells a story of global craftsmanship.

Perfumer Kamila shares, "Creating 3910 was about opening the doors to a palace of scents. The spicy saffron and velvety roses highlighted by the amber woods evoke an intoxicating experience that transports you to another world."

Romain adds about crafting IFE, "It was composed as an olfactory portrait, where each note plays a part in narrating a story of true love and unexpected emotions through the tender blend of musk and woods."
