Aura of mystery: 5 Oriental perfumes to leave a mark. Your Scent is Your Signature

Sensual and warm, there are not many perfumes that can rival the so-called orientals. Its olfactory trace is recognizable among thousands by a tasty mixture of spicy and sweet aromas, such as vanilla, leather or tonka bean that we find in both male and female perfumes.

Also known as amber, they are warm and powerful, covering any skin of a mysterious sensuality.

Contrary to citrus fruits that are characterized mainly by their cheerful and energetic appearance, or florals that leave an essentially fresh and very romantic mark (the rose is THE flower par excellence), Orientals have a more subtle and imperceptible impact that make them splendid aromas of desire.

Oriental perfumes usually have very pronounced background notes, from plants such as patchouli whose smell can last for days.
