What does the word peony mean?

 

The peony's scientific name is "paeonia", which comes from Paeon: the doctor to the Olympian gods in Greek mythology. According to legend, Paeon was transformed into a flower by Zeus to protect him from the jealousy of his fellow doctors. There are several varieties of peony, each with a different color and shape. The most common varieties are the herbaceous peony, which blooms every year from a rhizome, and the shrubby peony, which can reach several meters in height and bloom in late spring.

 

 

In the beginning...

 

The peony has a long history in China and Japan, where it is considered a sacred flower. It was often used in religious ceremonies and royal weddings. Peonies arrived in Europe in the 18th century thanks to explorers who brought them back from China and Japan. It quickly became popular in the gardens of aristocratic homes, where it was cultivated for its beauty and rarity. Today, the peony is cultivated in many countries, including France, where it is used to produce top-quality perfumes.

The peony, also known as the "thornless rose", is native to Asia, particularly China and Tibet. It has been cultivated there for over two thousand years for its medicinal properties. In Japan, the peony is considered a flower of nobility and beauty, symbolizing courage, wealth and honor. Peonies are so highly prized in Japan that festivals are dedicated to them every year, where the most beautiful flowers are displayed and admired by thousands of visitors. The peony is also very much in evidence in Japanese art, notably in prints and paintings, where it is depicted in an elegant and refined manner.

 

 

 

Peony perfume recreated through accords

 

The peony ingredient is often created using accords, as it is a mute flower. This expression describes flowers which, although they give off a powerful, pleasant fragrance, cannot be used to extract an essence that can be used in perfume creation. No traditional extraction method can capture their essence, so it is necessary to artificially recreate their fragrance. Furthermore, due to its availability as a raw material, the peony being a delicate and fragile flower, it can be difficult to extract a sufficient quantity of essential oil from the flower to meet the demand of the perfume industry. Finally, by using accords rather than pure peony extracts, perfumers can reduce their dependence on limited natural resources. This preserves peony flowers and avoids overexploitation of resources.  

 

 

 

What do you know about peonies in perfumery?

 

The processing and transformation of peony accords in perfumery involves several stages. Here's an overview of the general process:

• Formulation of the accord.
• Blending ingredients to obtain the desired peony accord.
• Evaluation and adjustment of the accord by the perfumer according to his or her olfactory expectations.
• Integration of the composition.
• Maturation and maceration for a specific period.
• Filtration and stabilization to eliminate any residues or undesirable particles.


It should be noted that the process of treating and transforming accords may vary according to the perfumer's techniques and preferences, as well as industry standards. Each perfumer has his or her own approach and artistic vision, which may be reflected in the specific methods and steps used.


Peony is a flower with soft, delicate floral notes and a slightly fruity touch. It is often described as feminine and romantic, with a subtle spicy note. Different varieties of peony can have different shades, from pale pink to dark red, with variations in floral and fruity notes. As a perfume note, peony can add depth and complexity to a floral fragrance, or add a romantic touch to a fruity one.

 

Olfactory accord with peony is a key element in the creation of sophisticated, elegant fragrances. Perfumers often use peony as a heart note to create complex floral fragrances. The accord can be combined with fresh, fruity notes to create an invigorating, refreshing scent, or with woody notes to add depth and sophistication to the fragrance. The use of the olfactory accord with peony in men's fragrances is becoming increasingly popular. Men's fragrances containing peony can be combined with notes of bergamot, grapefruit and lemon to create a light, fresh scent, perfect for a summer's day. Notes of cedar, sandalwood and vetiver can then be added to create a sophisticated, masculine scent.

As well as reducing stress and calming the mind, peony is also used to relieve menstrual pain and cramps. It is also known for its anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties, making it useful for treating muscle and joint pain. Peony also has anti-aging properties due to its natural antioxidants.
