Decoding Perfume Lingo

Fundamentally, the best way to figure out the right scent for you comes down to your ability to decipher the language of perfumery. When selling perfume, we use words and phrases to describe aromas very carefully to give as accurate an idea of the perfume as possible.

As a result, a selection of terms has become vital to understanding what the intended fragrance is. For our range, these include:

  • Floral: Elegant and flowery notes, perfect for any season and time of day.
  • Fresh: Citrus notes of lemon, lime, and orange, designed to lift the mood.
  • Boozy: A spicy and robust fragrance with profound notes of bourbon.
  • Ambery: A smoother fragrance with woody notes of Oak and Rye.
  • Pure: Wood scents layered with one another to create a complete bouquet.

A Sense of Occasion

One of the more critical elements of perfumery is being able to maximize your return. Perfumes operate in sequences of experience over time, with the fragrance changing and shifting as it’s worn on the skin. As a result, choosing the right time for your perfume can be vital.

When choosing your next signature fragrance, consider when and where the scent will be worn. Wearing a fresh or floral fragrance for morning engagements is highly recommended, whereas a more decadent and boozy wood fragrance may be better suited to evening occasions.

So, consider the style of fragrance you’d like to purchase before thinking about when and where you’re most likely to wear it. Careful consideration of time and place can ensure your new signature scent is felt as authentically as possible.

Patience is Vital
