♥ A Personal Fragrance Profile


The following Fragrance Profile was created based on my own personal fragrance wardrobe and with the help of Michael Edward’s Fragrance Wheel and Fragrance Finder to make a detailed analysis.

The Fragrance Wheel by Michael Edwards

The Fragrance Wheel by Michael Edwards – A categorization of the creative and sometimes chaotic world of scent

The Fragrance Wheel holds the key to your fragrance likes and dislikes. It lets you see the relationship between the 14 different families at a glance. Each family leads to the next, Florals for example, become Soft Florals when blended with sparkling aldehydes and balanced by a powdery dry-down. Soft Florals are transformed into Floral Orientals by adding the scents of orange blossom and sweet spices.

Although your sense of smell is emotional, the fragrances you most enjoy will probably belong to just one or two fragrance families.
