Oriental and Energetic
The oriental category features orange blossom, incense, resins, and sandalwood with sweet and warm notes like vanilla, musk, cinnamon, and cardamom. These scents have been known to interest the woman who is lively, energetic, and social. If your social life is above 60%, then it is advisable for you to go for fragrances with oriental note.
Fresh and Aspiring

Women attracted to the zesty, tangy smells of citrus are strong-minded, ambitious, and natural leaders. Fresh-scented fragrances interests women who are powerful and have aspirations.
Woody and Curious
The woody family is focused on aromatic woods and herbs. This is where you will find the lovers of lavender. People who are a little more reserved but curious, love these notes. These women value friendship and teamwork, and can be thoughtful and contemplative.
