How to Make a Custom Chypre Style Perfume

by Adam Steier February 9, 2017

A Chypre style perfume is a common family of fragrances with citrus top notes, oakmoss/patchouli mid notes, and a base of musk.

To create the base for a typical Chypre scent we would use base notes of Oakmoss and Musk.

These notes will last the longest on your skin and are what will be left after the drydown.  They give the scent it’s ‘it’ factor and are the driving animalistic force behind the scent.


Moving up through the fragrance we have Patchouli and Labdanum mid notes, these serve to help create a flow to the citrus top notes.  Patchouli and Labdanum both start off sweeter and end with a bit of a musk scent.

For a traditional chypre scent it has to be a citrus like orange, blood orange, citrus, lemon, bergamot or neroli.  These would be the basics, but over the past few decades the definition of what a chypre is has broadened to include floral and fruity twists.
