Olfactory family

Olfactory families allow individual perfumes to be classified according to their key olfactory characteristics. They are created either by grouping together raw materials (like flowers, woods, aromatics or citrus fruits) or by taking inspiration from traditional accords (oriental or chypre, for example). The families can be feminine, masculine or unisex. Citrus, floral, aromatic, woody, oriental, chypre… dive in and explore the wide variety of olfactive groups used in perfumery, and find out all about the perfumes best associated with them!
