Honey (Synthetic)

Utilized as a sweetener since antiquity, the aroma of honey is sweet, familiar, and comforting. Thus, it is no surprise that in addition to flavoring edible items, synthetic honey is often utilized as a fragrance. Many items that often include synthetic honey fragrances are designed for personal hygiene, such as soaps, shampoos, conditioners, cosmetics, and body lotions. However, the sweet smell of products such as candles, incense, and potpourri are also often the result of synthetic honey additives.
