Pompeia was among the first perfumes to make use of amyl salicylate, a synthetic discovered by Georges Darzens in 1896. Amyl Salicylate is a bezone ester has a floral and sweet, herbaceous and balsamic character, with a greenish tone. Darzens described the scent of amyl salicylate as "the fragrance of flowering clover under the heat of august."With Darzen's assistance, amyl salicylate had previously been used in L.T. Piver's le trèfle incarnat, introduced in 1898.
