Most common scent of all. A common choice among women, but is now favored as well by men. Rose, tuberose, and orange blossoms are usual notes.
The taste of sweetness parallels scent. This particular scent would always remind you of candy, vanilla and any sweet gourmand.
Exotic. Warm. Sensual.
The addition of spices from peppercorns to anise adds the oriental sensation to any perfume. A genderless choice for those wants to warm their senses.
The unique smell of fruits reinterpreted into a bottle of perfume. Mostly categorized with the summer atmosphere and with usual notes of mango, apple and berries.
Another favorite summer scent is the tangy and fresh fragrance of citrus fruits. A category of their own. An effervescent top note of vigor and refreshing citrus awakes the senses.
An aromatic scent of freshness can be clearly visualized by water. The zingy scent of herbs, grass, and cool feeling of water makes up the composition of this scent.
Dry and deep.
The dominance of resin or the depth of dried woods makes this scent perfect for men. It's opulent and rich, a classic scent for the senses.
