Know Your Fragrance Families

There are four main family scents: Floral, Woody, Oriental, and Fresh. Let’s talk about each of the families and what sets it apart from other scent families. 

The Floral scent family is one of the most commonly used family by perfume suppliers. It is mostly used in women’s perfumes and has powdery and sweet tones. This family is often found in designer perfumes for women just like Neroli | Ylang | Bergamot, which is inspired by Chanel #5

The Woody family is characterized by warm and musky scents. These scents are generally drier and are perfect for those looking subtle but deep aromas. A designer perfume and hotel perfume part of the woody scent family is Oud Wood inspired by Hotel 1 and Tom Ford. This is the scent perfect for those looking for woody yet warm notes.

On the other hand, the Oriental scent family is known for its exotic aromas. These aromas include different spices and herbs. Scents belonging to this family would remind you of richness, attraction, and seduction. An example of a designer perfume from this family is Amber Crystal | Vetiver | Oud Musk which has notes of different spices and woods. This hotel perfume is inspired by Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540.

Lastly, the Fresh Family. This family is characterized by clean smelling scents. Scents from this family are often citrussy, light, and oceany. Environment’s designer perfume Sea Water | Ozone | Oakmoss is a scent that hails from this clean-smelling family.
