All fragrances can be divided into families, indicating the overall fragrance impression on which all the fragrance notes are structured. The fragrance families hold the key to each person’s dislikes, likes and loves.
There are fourteen main families of fine fragrances.
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.
Lavender, rosemary, basil and citrus fruits teamed with the warmth of wood… If these clean, uncomplicated notes sum up your favourite smells, then you’ll be drawn to fresh fragrances from the Aromatic Fougère family.
