Calone is a synthetic perfume compound that was discovered by Pfizer in 1966. It is similar in structure to the pheromones produced by certain species of brown algae. In perfumery, calone is used to produce a fresh "sea-breeze" scent.

What it Smells Like

Calone produces the olfactory effect of a fresh seashore through intense marine and ozone notes, with slight floral overtones. It is used in several modern perfumes to create an oceanic, watery scent effect.

Calone Fragrances to Try

Some perfumes for women that feature calone in their composition include Davidoff Cool Water Woman, Christian Dior Dune, Issey Miyake L'eau d'Issey, L'Eau Par Kenzo for Womene, Giorgio Beverly Hills Ocean Dream for Women, Ralph Lauren Polo Sport Woman, Rochas Aquawoman, and Aramis New West For Her.

A selection of men's fragrances starring calone include Davidoff Cool Water Cologne for Men, Kenzo Homme, Kenzo Homme Fresh, Calvin Klein Escape, Issey Miyake L'eau d'Issey Pour Homme, Jil Sander Sun Men, Hugo Boss Hugo Element, and Donna Karan DKNY Men.
