The New Year can be the perfect time to discover a new fragrance. Whether you are on the trail for an exciting new scent or simply wish to update your all-time favourite, finding that perfect one will bring joy all year round.
But where to begin? With so many to perfumes to choose from, finding that new fragrance can be daunting. At Les Senteurs we have been helping and advising our customers for many years on how to navigate through the perfume vaults. To bring order to the process we devised a system that categorises all of our scented products into eleven olfactory families - we called it the SenteurSystem.
Over the course of 2019 we will explore the SenteurSystem in more detail, focusing on one family per month. We will be sharing key ingredients, characteristics and recommendations for each family, giving you the confidence to pick that perfect scent.
Let the SenteurSystem guide you on your journey of fragrance discovery.
Fragrance Family of the Month: Chypre
One of the oldest fragrance families - the chypre type - is named for the island of Cyprus, the birthplace of Aphrodite, goddess of erotic love. Translating into rich dark scents: chypre fragrances are often sophisticated, elegant and urban. Featuring crisp top notes which soften through fruity or floral hearts into an aromatic woody base, the Chypre fragrance has warmth and depth making it an ideal choice for this time of year.
