A harbinger of spring, the daffodil is a flower native to the Middle East. It is actually a variety of narcissus, whose bright yellow flowers are very fragrant. Although there are several species, the true daffodil, so loved by perfumers, is rare. Its precious flower is grown in small quantities in the Grasse region. To incorporate its fragrance into compositions, noses can extract the daffodil flower with volatile solvents to produce a concrete and an absolute. Because of its rarity, this perfumed material is generally reserved for the perfumery of prestige. The smell released is flowery and green at the same time. It reminds the scent of broom and moss.
