Salt’s a flavour. So how can it work, in a perfume…?  A ‘fantasy’ note of salt can be used to add tang to marine, woody or even gourmand fragrances.  In the same way that a touch of salt brings a caramel alive, saltiness can play against sweet notes like chocolate, praline and cream, as an almost show-stopping contrast.  Fragrances with high levels of ambergris (natural or synthetic) can also smell ‘salty’.
