Hi, I'm Stephanie, from stephanieknaturals.com, and I'm going to tell you about types of perfumes. There's several classifications that fragrances traditionally are put into. One is floral. That would be fragrances with a a lot of floral notes, flower notes. There are Orientals. These are ones from areas of The East that were imported, and and so they're the exotic heavy scents; things like sandalwood, vetiver, vanilla. Then, you also have fougere scents which are herbal. It means fern, and so these would be some of the more herbal, foresty type of scents. The Chypres, and these were are some of the mossy similar to fougere, and then, there are any combination of these. You could also have leather. It's you know these, anything that has a leather node; something heavy and a little bit anime-like. And then, there's any combination of these. You can have a a citrus-floral, or a spicy-floral, or a floral-oriental, so there are many classifications and sub-classifications for different fragrances.
