The Nine Olfactive Families of Scentsy
When Scentsy creates their fragrances they always tend to land in one of 9 Olfactive Families. What does Olfactive mean?
olfaction /ol·fac·tion/ (ol-fak´shun). 1. smell; the ability to perceive and distinguish odors
I think with perfumes it varies a bit and these are just the starting point to describe the scents. Those scent experts out there, I'd love to hear what you think what scents may be a part of what Olfactive Family? Most are more than one because of the Top, Mid and Base Notes which is what you smell with Scentsy at different temperatures and lifespan of your little cube you add to the top of your warmer dish.
Mandarin, Bergamot, Lime, Grapefruit
Basil, Spearmint, Triplal, Peppermint, Thyme
Calone, Aldehyde C11, Aldehyde C12
Rose, Muguet, Jasmine, Mimosa, Gardenia
Peach, Raspberry, Melon, Apple, Strawberry
Pepper, Clove, Nutmeg, Cinnamon
Vanilla, Caramel, Cocoa, Brown Sugar, Butter
Sandalwood, Patchouli, Fir Balsam, Cedarwood, Olibanum
So lots of weird names in these categories dont you think? I had no idea that Scent fragrance was SOOO complicated, but apparently its a completely whole different field of study!
