When it comes to creating a new fragrance, perfumers must have a deep understanding of the different scent families and how they interact with each other. There are four main families of scents: floral, oriental, fresh, and woody.
Floral scents are characterized by the aroma of flowers, such as roses, jasmine, and lavender. They are often considered to be feminine and romantic.
Oriental scents are warm and sensual, with notes of spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. They are often associated with luxury and glamour.
Fresh scents are clean and invigorating, with notes of citrus, mint, and aquatic. They are often used in unisex fragrances and are associated with energy and vitality.
Woody scents are earthy and grounding, with notes of cedar, sandalwood, and patchouli. They are often associated with masculinity and strength.
At Vanessence, we believe that the key to creating a truly great fragrance is to understand the different scent families and how they interact with each other. By combining different scents in the right way, we can create fragrances that are not only beautiful but also evoke emotions and memories.
So next time you spray on your favourite perfume, take a moment to appreciate the art and science behind it. Understanding the different scent families can help you understand the fragrances you love and find new fragrances.
