Musk has been the most popularly used perfume note for at least 20 years, according to the research. In 2020 the trend continues with releases like Nomade Absolue by Chloé and Miss Dior Roses N'Roses by Christian Dior hitting the shelves this season.

The floral scents of jasmine and rose are also set to be popular in 2020, having been used in over 1,000 perfume releases last year. However, it is a new flower that makes its appearance in perfumes of 2020 – violet.

The two notes featuring in 2020 releases that were not in the top 10 notes of last year include:

  • Violet
  • White musk
Violet notes often smell powdery and earthy and are predicted to be a big scent trend for 2020 with releases like Gucci Love Edition by Gucci already available.

On the other hand, data reveals that amber and cedar notes may be on their way out. Neither of these feature in the top 10 notes of 2020 releases.
