When choosing a home fragrance ( or any type of fragrance ), it is important to consider the type of scent you want.
Do you want something light and airy, or rich and luxurious?
Something fresh and clean, or warm and inviting?
Once you know what type of scent you are looking for, the fragrance wheel can help you find scents that are similar to the ones you are interested in.
What is the fragrance wheel?
The fragrance wheel is a method for recognising different scent families.
It features all of the fragrance categories and subcategories showing how they transition into the next
and which scents can compliment each other.
The four primary fragrance categories are Floral, Oriental, Woody and Fresh.
Each category has its own set of features that make it distinct,
