Finding the Perfect Perfume

Finding the Perfect Perfume

We all have our favourite fragrances - perhaps yours takes you back to a moment in time.

Or you might like a fragrance that enhances your mood, confidence or sensuality.

We’re here to help you understand what fragrance notes you love and which family they’re part of. With this knowledge, it’s easier to select a new fragrance and find that perfect gift… or for someone else to find one for you!

Fragrances are commonly categorised into four family groups – Fresh, Floral, Oriental and Woody.  The difference between each is quite distinctive.  For example, Floral family fragrances are likely to be pretty and romantic whilst Oriental family fragrances deliver seductive emotion through the richness of spice.
