Cool, dark, green: the leaves and the little black berries from this self-clinging evergreen plant can be steam-distilled and turned into a refreshing green fragrance top note, with just a dash of spiciness. The note has a mystical air to it:  in the ‘language’ of plants, it’s been linked with prosperity, fidelity, virtue and positivity.  Ivy was also carried by women who wanted to attract good fortune.  Not bad allusions for a fragrance note, we’d say.
