Soft Oriental

Sometimes referred to as spicy fragrances, this family is inhabited by rich compositions laden with incense and warm spices and accented by floral notes, typically carnation. Soft Oriental fragrances are sometimes referred to as semi-oriental fragrances—they tend to be less rich than oriental scents but still possess a warm, ambery character. Hallmarks of this family include an ambery base and a liberal use of warm spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.
