Baies de Genièvre:

(French for) juniper berry

Baies Rose:

Pink peppercorns, from the tree schinus molle, also known as the Peruvian or California pepper tree. These are actually dried berries and not "true" peppercorns.

Bergamot:

The tangy oil expressed from the nearly ripe, non-edible bergamot orange. The oranges are grown mostly in Italy and are used to flavor Earl Grey tea.


Bigarade:

The zest of the bitter orange.

Back Notes:

The back note is the third and last phase of a perfume's life on the skin, or evaporation. It contains the lasting ingredients, such as woods, resins, animal and crystalline substances. In heavy perfumes (chypre and Oriental notes, for instance) the back note is so strongly accented that it is discernible in the top-note, or first impression.

Balsamic:

It’s a fragrance impression that can be described as sweet, soft and warm. Basically, balsamic notes result from the use of balsams and resins in perfume compositions. The Oriental perfumes in particular are characterized by balsamic ingredients.

Balsams:

Balsams are vicious secretions of plants that emerge when the plant's outer layers are injured. Balsams do not require an extraction process prior to their being used in perfumery.

Bitter:

It is the fragrance impression that corresponds to bitterness in terms of taste. It is produced by a combination of roots (such as vetiver), herbs (such as wormwood), animal notes (such as in leather) and others. Bitter accents are to be found mainly in masculine fragrances.

Bouquet:

A mixture of flower notes.

Bouquetting:

The rounding off and harmonizing of a perfume or flavor.
