What are fragrance families?

With so many different types of scents, it’s a little difficult to figure out where some end and where some begin. To easily classify fragrances, they can be categorized into different families. Some are similar to others, but feature unique characteristics that differentiate them from one another. For example, fruit and citrus fragrances can smell quite close to each other, but they are distinguished from each other based on their individual notes. You may be familiar with the color wheel from your time in primary school art class, but did you know there’s also a fragrance wheel? There are many different ways to organize fragrance families, so multiple wheels can be around across varying sites and fragrance houses. We’ve put together our own fragrance wheel for you to check out on our downloads page!
