American perfumes have been in fashion for more than a decade now, and fragrances created by US perfumers are known to everyone, even in remote corners of the globe. Currently, it is North America that leads in the number of brands developing perfumes and toilet water: if in France there are only about three hundred manufacturers, then in America there are more than four hundred.
How it all began
The most famous perfumes from the USA, pioneers in this area are Elizabeth Arden, Estee Lauder. The first brand released its fragrance back in 1936. It was a composition focused on the beautiful half of humanity. She saw the light under the name Blue Grass. However, at that time, French, Italian perfume houses were so strong that manufacturers from other countries could not even think about serious competition.
The situation has changed radically over the years, and two decades later, the Estee Lauder brand presented its first fragrance to customers. They were named Youth Dew and became the most popular women's fragrance in the world. This was largely due to the fact that the perfume was suitable not only for evening wear, but also perfectly combined with a strict everyday look.
Sixties in historyAmerican perfume brands are closely associated with the names of stars. Since then, to this day, perfumes named after famous, popular actresses and singers have been actively produced. Every woman who wants this, wherever she is, can afford to feel like Beyonce or Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez or Celine Dion. All you have to do is buy the right perfume.
As experts say, American perfumery does not have a clear division into top, middle notes and base. Indeed, some spirits do not have this feature, but there are as many exceptions to this rule as there are subordinates to it.
American Perfume: Elizabeth Arden
The company has existed since 1910. Her first products were in the eye make-up category, and over time, a spa center opened in Manhattan, which soon became popular among the masses. Since the release of the first fragrance and to this day, the company pays a lot of attention to perfumery, at the same time it produces various cosmetics. One of the most famous American perfumes has the same name as the brand - "Elizabeth Arden". In addition to it, 22 more scents are being produced, including those dedicated to famous actresses and singers.
One of the most popular series of this brand is called Elizabeth Arden Green Tea. Based on the freshness of green tea, this American perfume with an interesting aroma is optimal for warm weather. The smell is calm, unobtrusive, so it is ideal for everyday use. Often chosen by office ladies.
Perfume AmericanManufacturers: Estee Lauder
This brand also produces not only fragrances, but also cosmetics. The company started as a small home business, and the first cream was made in the kitchen. The popularity of the brand came when Este created her first perfume and broke the bottle with them when she came to the party. Everyone present learned about the new scent, which is rapidly gaining popularity, and it didn't even take words!
A list of America's most famous women's perfume names, according to many, should start with Estée Lauder's Pleasures. As soon as the smell appeared on sale, it became the leader in sales and maintains high positions to this day. This is a gentle, fresh composition, giving rise to images of a fresh breeze and a cloudless summer day. The peculiarity of the smell is pink pepper, favorably shading the floral elements. Over time, the brand introduced the Pleasures Delight version to customers, rich in flavors valuable for gourmets. The line also contains a beautiful jasmine scent tinged with tuberose - it is presented under the name Beautiful. For the adventurous, the Adventurous version has been released.
This brand has existed since 1980, American perfumes under this name have been produced since 1991. At the moment, the brand has about 45 scents. One of the most popular series was created as a celebration of New York and was called 212. The women's version is sold under the name 212 Women. Its key notes are musky, citrus, and floral whites. But released inwithin the same line, the 212 Sexy fragrance is completely different - it is mischief, playfulness, and readiness for flirting, expressed through pink pepper, vanilla smell and notes of gardenia.
Today, American perfumes of this brand are one of the leaders in sales, and the best samples are presented in any self-respecting perfume store. I can’t even believe that initially Donna Karan was not going to be a businessman at all, because even during her studies she got married, soon a replenishment appeared in the family. Donna worked at Anna Klein's house, and after her death, the owners asked her to complete the new collection. This became the starting point, and in 1992 a new brand was opened, which received the name of its owner.
The Donna Karan New York brand is now known to every connoisseur of quality perfumes. In total, about 60 aromatic compositions have been created, highly valued around the world. The most famous Donna Karan New York perfumes are packaged in an original bottle in the form of an apple, they are called Be Delicious. Over time, the company has developed many similar compositions. The second series of bestsellers from Donna Karan is a perfume packaged in bottles depicting skyscrapers. They were created as the epitome of life in a large city, filled with energy and vitality.
In 2005, the market saw a completely unimaginable American fragrance before - it was a perfume, consisting of only one molecule, created artificially. The fragrance was introducedcalled Molecule 01. The second version from the same brand appeared on sale a few years later. It also contained only one smell, completely artificially created - an analogue of ambergris, synthesized in the laboratory.
Both scents chosen by this brand have been used in the work of perfumers before, but they were the constituent elements of complex compositions. The minimalistic approach with their application was first used by the Escentric Molecules brand. It is even amazing how quickly a unique and eccentric novelty was able to conquer the world. The perfume world was literally turned upside down, because the unique molecules were almost imperceptible, but they strongly influenced those around them - an effect similar to an aphrodisiac. As soon as it appeared on sale, the perfume was sold out almost immediately.
This brand has been around since 1996. The very first fragrance of the company was also sustained in the spirit of minimalism, and the brand adheres to this idea to this day. The fragrances produced by Demeter are naturalistic. Some of them smell like lobster, while others mimic leather. There are perfumes with the smell of pizza and earth, you can find unique perfumes that give the aroma of tomato seeds or even laundry. Eccentric, unusual, mostly suitable for both men and women, Demeter perfume has become the embodiment of the originality of life of a modern resident of a big city, who is not afraid of his passions, tastes and whims.
The owner of Demeter recommends using multiple bottles of perfume at the same time. itallows you to create unique compositions with a pronounced character. The client can decide for himself which combination is best for his day.

The mystical and bright aroma has become a landmark for the famous manufacturer. "Black Orchid" belongs to the group of oriental fragrances with a fatal smell, bewitching both men and women.

The base part of the fragrance is represented by vanilla, sandalwood, balsamic smell, notes of incense, patchouli. Top notes of truffle, citrus, bergamot and currant.
Black Orchid by Tom Ford was released in 2006 specifically for women who know that the world is at their feet. It is suitable for self-confident ladies who know their sexuality and are able to seduce anyone. The black orchid symbolizes beauty - fatal and languid, bewitching and captivating. It is absolutely impossible to break free from her shackles, and every man falls at the feet of Black Orchid. Mystical, the fragrance is literally on the verge of dizziness and loss of reason.
