Floral Oriental

Floral Oriental fragrances—as the name suggests—combine elements of floral fragrances and oriental fragrances (fragrances centered around an amber accord—the combination of vanilla and aromatic resins). Floral Oriental fragrances are alternatively referred to as sweet florals and will often incorporate notes of orange blossom and sweet spices. The origins of the family can be traced back to the early twentieth century. Guerlain's Après l'Ondée and L'Heure Bleue and Coty's L'Origan laid the foundation for a family that still thrives over one hundred years later. Fragrances in this family range from rich, classical compositions that harken back to the origins of the family to sweet, fruity fragrances accented by effervescent citrus fruits.
