Citrus Perfumes

Citrus fragrances are known for their distinctive, tangy aroma. Bergamot, lemon and grapefruit, abundantly grown in coastal groves across Italy and Spain, the best source of these fragrant morsels. Citrus fragrances are also a transformative note in perfumery. They bring light and freshness to the composition of an otherwise bold floral and woody fragrance.

Woody Perfumes

Chypre Perfumes

Popular note in perfumery, Lavender lends an aromatic, floral, fresh spicy facet to the fragrance that’s clean and almost powdery. Lavender fragrances offer a more masculine, liquorice nuance adding texture and warmth to fragrances that may first appear too heady.
