Unboxing with Suzy, our Head Fragrance Writer...
There is a fragrance note that is in three of the fragrances, what is it - can you guess by smelling?
The answer is cardamom, this fabulous ingredient has been used in the fragrance world for centuries and it can be found in Eight&Bob Egypt, Azzaro Wanted and Obvious One Rose – see if you can distinguish between fragrances with and without cardamom.
What is a fragrance family?
A fragrance family is a category into which perfumes are grouped by their characteristics. It can be helpful to know the family you prefer to find fragrances you love. Of course, fragrances can cross over two or three families, so keep an open mind too.
What should you do if you don’t like one of the fragrances?
Try it in another season, there are so many factors to loving a fragrance, be it the weather, humidity etc. So maybe you don’t like a woody fragrance right now, but it may become addictive in Winter when you are wanting something to curl up with.
We encourage you to use these notes as you sniff your new fragrances. Use the questions on each page to delve deeper while you are smelling.
