Words: Emily Venables
Packed with herbaceous notes and warming spices, aromatic fragrances are the ideal choice if you’re looking for an uplifting scent that has real richness to it. You’d be forgiven in thinking this fragrance family was one for the men due to its masculine muskiness, however with the addition of fragrant herbs, they also have a lightness to them which have found them a firm favourite in the women and unisex section too!
