What is ‘eau de saucepan’ (or aeroplane wing) doing in fragrance?  Well, recently, the third most abundant metal on earth has made an appearance – mostly in men’s perfumery, so far – to add a cooling, metal edge, for instance in the Blood Concept fragrances, but also Creed’s Acier Aluminium, which was inspired (so they put it) by the chain mail worn by medieval knights.

Naturally, it’s a synthetic ‘fantasy’ ingredient:  you can’t distil a metal, or extract it through enfleurage…!

Smell aluminium in:
