Journey Into Our Perfumes/Aftershaves

    The perfume universe is divided into ‘families’. In reality, very few of us have a jumbled wardrobe of scents from lots of different families: often without even realising, we tend to fall for one family time and again. Instinctively, we prefer scents from some fragrance families and dislike others – although we may tend towards one particular family for colder weather, another for sunny times.

    Our easy guide below takes you on a descriptive and visual journey to understand the scent that is essentially yours.
