Types of perfumes according to olfactory families (I)

When you discover an aroma, it’s inevitable that it will provoke some sensation in you or remind you of someone.

Sometimes it smells like the sea, at other times it reminds you of a summer afternoon at the beach… And it’s also possible that you can’t even describe the sensation it gives you.

That’s why today we’re starting to explain to you what some of our olfactory families are and what fragrances belong to each one. That way, the next time you choose a perfume, you can have a clear idea of what sensation you want to give to those who capture your essence.
