What’s a sticky, bright red syrup doing in a perfume bottle?  Adding to the cocktail of perfume ingredients, that’s what, with its citrussy, tart-sweet fruitiness.  Of course it’s not actual grenadine itself – which is made from pomegranate juice, cherry juice and sugar – which perfumers use:  the grenadine note is generally synthetic.  But – just like a real cocktail (paper parasol optional), it adds a sense of summer to fragrances.
