Synthetic fragrances are created artificially in a lab, usually with the help of a chemist and perfumer. They are designed to mimic natural scents, but they can also be used to create new smells that don’t exist in nature.

They are made from chemicals and does not contain any natural ingredients. Synthetic fragrances are also called artificial fragrances.

Natural fragrances are made from natural ingredients, such as flowers, herbs, or essential oils. Natural fragrances are also called essential oils or pure oils.

Fragrance blends are a mixture of synthetic and natural fragrances that have been combined to create a specific smell. Fragrance blends may contain both synthetic and natural ingredients.

How are Synthetic Fragrances Different from Natural Scents?

Natural scents are obtained by distilling flowers, fruits or herbs to extract their aromatic oils. These oils are then diluted with water or alcohol to create the desired scent.

The biggest difference between synthetic and natural fragrances is that synthetic fragrances don’t have any living components in them, while natural scents do have living components (like flowers).
