Fortunately, no single scent is made of only one family. Below
is a description of the main Fragrance Families as you’ll find them
mentioned in the descriptions of perfumes
Sweet, innocent, young. Floral is the most recognised scent, probably because it is the most widely used, in fragrances.
A sweet smell provokes happiness and self-wellness. A Floral scent is considered the most appropriate for intimate settings where you’re in close contact with other individuals like a play, a flight or church. It is one of the least ‘invasive’ scents.
The Fresh Family consists of elegant, clean notes like citrus, green, and organic. If you’re looking for something youthful and outdoorsy, go for a perfume with fresh notes.
This type of scent is ideal if you want to make a good first impression in an interview or meeting someone.
Sensual, animalistic and earthy, Oriental uses the scents of musk and amber to create a sensuous, bold fragrance. It creates a sense of mystery and adventure. Wear it on your night out and leave them wanting more.
You’ll find notes of vanilla, musk, nutmeg, and more in this category.
Sophisticated and outdoorsy. Using scents of bark and moss, it is a Base Note which comes to light only after the Top Notes like Floral and Citrus has dried down.
A Woody scent oozes strong femininity, a no-nonsense type of woman who knows what she wants and goes out to get it.
