Florals, the highest-profile of all the fragrance families, you may think this is predominantly for women, but with the right pairing, florals can exude an elegant simplicity with the perfect masculine touch! The instantly recognisable bouquets tend to be a rich ensemble of ingredients, featuring the likes of jasmine, iris, rose, and a multitude of others.
Traditionally, floral fragrances are perfect for day-to-day wear due to their light and airy character. There is so much variety within the floral family, ranging from single note soliflores to elaborate bouquets, exotic florientals and everything in between.
Soliflores place a single floral ingredient at the centre stage of the composition. Other notes, florals included, are then introduced to help emphasise its beauty. Bouquets, on the other hand, are deeper and more complex. Multi-floral bouquets assemble a collection of different flowers into a unique and vibrant arrangement.
Perhaps the most romantic and enticing out of all florals are the white florals, perfect for everyday wear. White florals are filled with jasmine, iris, tuberose and gardenia which are responsible for their silky-smooth elegance. Fresh florals - these combine the traditional floral palette with citrus and aquatic notes, but with a more distant floral presence and a greater staying power than the classical fresh-citrus style.
Musky florals are enriched with animalic notes such as musk, civet and ambergris, which give added depth and warmth to floral compositions. For extra richness and exoticism, floral-orientals introduce delicious spices and warm woody notes, which adds an extra layer of sophistication and intrigue to a floral composition.
