People have always wanted to embody the look and feel of flowers, even in the old days. Maybe it was a sign of affluence back then, but it’s a lovely way to boost self-confidence – plus – it’s just polite. Today, thanks to floral scents, we can all smell like flowers. Welcome to the beautiful world of floral fragrances.
There are 6 different families in perfumery, each of which has its own unique characteristics. The olfactory families can be divided into 6 different groups. The most popular olfactory families are the floral, chypre woody, and aromatic.
The Floral Family
The floral family is extremely popular. It is the one that everyone talks about because of its feminine nature and the fact that it is the first scent that is recognised when you catch the scent. It has a medley of fresh flowers and is often paired with other notes such as jasmine, gardenia, tuberose, and so on.
There are quite a few sub-families within the floral family, each with its own unique characteristics. If you like a floral scent, you can explore its relations with these families. Floral notes are more abstract than anything else. They are many in number come in quite the variety. It is thus understandably impossible to be a fan of all the floral fragrances. What is more probable is having an appreciation for a particular category of flowers, depending on the similarity of their scents.
Almost every scent comes from the heart of two of the most popular floral notes: rose and jasmine. They’re the foundation stones of every fragrance creation, and they’re often hidden away in the shadows.
Springtime is the ideal time to indulge in the floral scent. It can be easily recognisable by its natural scent, but notes can also be cleverly disguised with complex notes. Whether you prefer a floral or a more complex scent, floral notes are sure to be memorable.
