One of the biggest challenges in perfumery is the continuous question of “How Do You Describe Perfume”.
Our noses can distinguish 1 Trillon different smells but we struggle to articulate the differences, character or nuances of a fragrance.
For this reason, the perfume industry has to a degree developed its own set of words, classification systems and various other aids to help in this task.
Here at Pairfum London we have created a brief introduction into “How Do You Describe Perfume” which we believe is ideal reading during National Fragrance Week.
After reading the article, you will feel much more comfortable with some of the terms you come across in the World of Perfumery.
