The seringa is a small shrub of the botanical family Philadephaceae. Native to North America and more particularly to Quebec, the seringa produces small white flowers with a delicate fragrance. Also called poets’ jasmine, it gives off sweet, floral notes in its natural state. But like other muted flowers, it is impossible to extract an essence from its bloom. To reproduce its white floral nuances with honeyed notes, the perfumer must resort to synthetic chemistry. Its vaporous nuances are most often used in floral and citrus compositions, revealing fresh, feminine, almost bucolic scents.
