Kadalys DNA is also a strong olfactory identity to bring you an unforgettable sensory experience. Our fragrances are developed in close collaboration with our talented partner perfumers to create iconic and unique fragrances. We have chosen to tell you everything about our fragrances and allergens to help you understand the labels and ratings of cosmetic analysis applications.
Perfume is one of the most difficult cosmetic products to convert to natural because the range of scents offered in conventional is much more diverse than that of natural and organic fragrances. To give you an idea, manufacturers of conventional fragrances have access to more than 1,500 fragrant raw materials for the creation of a synthetic eau de parfum against around 150 for the manufacture of an organic eau de parfum.

Because we are committed to formulating effective, natural but also sensory care, we have chosen to develop our fragrances with French Haute Parfumerie Maisons.
Inspired by our tropical and warm islands, intoxicating and light fragrances are 100%, ECOCERT / COSMOS certified, made in France and developed only from natural raw materials and essential oils.
HOW TO DESCRIBE THE OLFACTORY PYRAMID OF A PERFUME?
A perfume is made up of 3 main notes, distributed according to an olfactory pyramid:
- Top notes: perceptible notes about 30 minutes
- Middle notes: the notes that dominate for 4 hours
- Base notes: notes that persist the longest, lasting 6 hours or more
This is also why your perfume evolves on your skin and over time.
How to identify the different families of perfumes?
The fragrances are divided into 7 major basic olfactory families: woody, chypre, leather, floral, fern, citrus (or fruity) and oriental (or amber).
Created in 1984 by the Société Française des Parfumeur, this classification makes it possible to understand and identify their composition more quickly. However, it has some variations, because if these olfactory families characterize the general personality of a fragrance, there are multiple variations of scents in one and the same family. There are therefore several facets which sometimes mix several families together.
FOCUS ON THE ESSENTIAL OILS CONTAINED IN OUR PERFUMES AND THE PERFUME ALLERGENS
Our perfumes are partly composed of essential oils, they are naturally based on the principles of olfactology and aromatherapy. The scents of essential oils exert an effect on our emotions, our fragrances are both active on the senses and scented.
Perfume allergens are molecules naturally present in the raw materials used in perfumes and give them a particular and characteristic odor (Essential Oils, etc.). They can cause allergic reactions on sensitive or reactive skin such as redness or itching. These substances are natively contained in these raw materials they are not added separately. Like for example, benzyl salicylate which is the odorous compound of ylang-ylang.
26 of these perfuming substances recognized as allergenic are listed in the Cosmetic Regulations, they must be mentioned on the INCI formula according to their dosage and the function of the product.
0.001% of the formula for products that do not rinse off (serums, creams, oils, etc.)
0.01% of the formula for products that rinse off (shower gels, facial cleansing gels, make-up removing oils, etc.)
The purpose of this display is to inform the consumer, it does not guarantee that there will be no reactions, which is why we recommend that you systematically test a new product in the fold of your arm and wait 24 hours.
In our perfumes we sometimes label allergens:
- Limonene: this compound is present in many essential oils, especially from citrus fruits. It takes its name from the lemon (Limon) which, like other citrus fruits.
- Linalool: this molecule is naturally present in almost all essential oils, it brings a floral and fresh touch.
- Citral: this compound is present in lemongrass, verbena, orange, lemon oil ... it gives the lemony side to perfumes.
- Benzyl salicylate: naturally derived from salicylic acid, it has a very pleasant sweet and floral scent and very light main compound of ylang-ylang. It gives a floral side (lilac, jasmine).
- Geraniol: this compound gives off a sweet floral scent, similar to roses. It is naturally present in many fruits, vegetables, spices and essential oils: apple, ginger, blackberry, blueberry, rosewood, jasmine, lavender ...
