Floral perfumes and fragrances are the most popular perfume family, these scents all contain the aromas of beautiful flowers and floral perfumes are the fragrances that are dominated by one or several types of flower notes.

Some of the popular ingredients of flower based perfumes are roses, orange blossoms, gardenias, jasmine, carnations, frangipani, lotus, daisies, champaka, lily of the valley, freesias, aldehydes, tuberose and other expensive natural flower oils.

Floral scents are feminine and popular with women while there is little or no floral colognes aimed at men since floral perfumes are delicate and made distinctly for women.

As their name suggests the oriental perfumes originate from more exotic parts of the world. Made from spices such as pepper, cloves, cinnamon and vanilla, these fragrances are warm and sensual. There is also a certain depth to this scent that is quite popular with the more adventurous!

Largely favoured by men, the woody perfumes often have light top notes with a muskier heart. Made from sandalwood, patchouli and oakmoss, these warm, dry and musky notes provide an air of sophistication and mystery to all who wear them. Women prefer the woody notes for evenings.

Commonly known as citrus or green notes, the fresh fragrances are often made from lemon, orange and bergamot; then accented with herbal notes to give that refreshing scent and revive the senses. These are a great choice for an uplifting springtime essence for both men and women.
