Smooth Carnation, incense and warm spices … if these soft, yet sensual notes speak to you, then you’ll love fragrances from the Soft Oriental family.

FAMILY ORIENTAL

Vanilla and musk, cinnamon and cardamom … opulent, sweet and warm. If these sensual notes are what you are drawn to, then you’ll love fragrances from the Oriental family.

FAMILY WOODY ORIENTAL

Take a healthy dose of patchouli and sandalwood, add a splash of spice and maybe something sweet enough to eat … if this sounds like the way you like to smell, then you’ll love fragrances from the Woody Oriental family.

FAMILY WOODS

Cedarwood, sandalwood and vetiver – raw and simple. Freshly sanded floors and sawdust … if these are the notes that make your senses sing, then you’ll love fragrances from the Woods family.

FAMILY MOSSY WOODS

If it is traditional style fragrances with sweet, smooth, sometimes earthy woody and mossy notes that inspire you, then you’ll love fragrances from the Mossy Woods family.

FAMILY DRY WOODS

The smokiness of smouldering embers and the unmistakable leathery smell of new shoes … if these scents define your style, then you’ll love fragrances from the Dry Woods family.

FAMILY AROMATIC

If clean, uncomplicated and fresh describes you … if the blend of lavender and other herbs such as rosemary or basil teamed with the warmth of wood sums up your favourite smells, then you’ll love fragrances from the universally popular Aromatic Fougère family.

FAMILY CITRUS

If it is the smell of zesty, tangy and juicy lemons and mandarins that invigorates and energises you … then you’ll love the fragrances in the Citrus family.

FAMILY WATER

The smell of fresh sea sprays, or wet air after a thunderstorm … if these are the scents that move you, then you’ll love fragrances in the Water family.

FAMILY GREEN

Nothing beats the smell of freshly mown lawns, and crushed green leaves, right? If you think so too then you’ll love the fragrances in the Green family.

FAMILY FRUITY

Sweet, juicy and edible. Tropical fruits, peaches, pears and orchard fresh summer apples … if these mouth-watering scents excite you, then you’ll love fragrances in the Fruity family.

FAMILY FLORAL

Can’t walk past a florist shop without slowing down, closing your eyes and taking a deep breath? Roses, jasmine, lily, frangipani ... if these are the scents your dreams are made of, look for fragrances in the Floral family.

FAMILYSOFT FLORAL

Soft, powdery … sweet, musky and creamy. If these nostalgic scents transport you back in time, then you’ll love fragrances from the Soft Floral family.

FAMILY FLORAL ORIENTAL

Florals like Orange Blossom, made smooth, sweet and subtly spicy with incense and amber … if these are the scents that say “style” to you, then you’ll love fragrances from the Floral Oriental family.

"As a fragrance developer I find myself constantly looking into the Fragrances of the World database to learn more about the classification of different olfactive families…to categorize the creative and sometimes chaotic world of scent is understanding the olfactive world as an essential part of our natural, and indeed, cultural history"
