Scents-ible adviceOriental

Oriental fragrances are rich, sensual, exotic, knockout scents. Orientals, also known as 'amber' fragrances, stand out because of their unique blend of warmth and sensuality. They draw their richness from heady ingredients and tend to be opulent and bewitching.

Do you love dressing up and turning heads? Love flirting and performing? You might like oriental scents!

Key oriental notes to look for on the bottle: amber, vanilla, musk, precious woods, exotic flowers, spices like cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, clove, and animal notes.
