The box contains: 5 scents; 5 scent pyramids; 5 scent strips.
The Scent Pyramid
This is a diagram of the notes in a perfume, typically used to help guide anyone unfamiliar with a perfume. In fact, most perfumes contain far more notes than are listed and not all rise and fall as the pyramid suggests - perfumes are far cleverer than that! Some top notes last for a few hours and some bottom notes are detectable almost immediately.
What Distinguishes Fruits and Gourmands?
These are designed to evoke the sensations of warmth and pleasure associated with eating or drinking. These typically have bright and fresh top notes, such as citrus or fruit, to balance the sweeter base notes, which are the more prominent and long-lasting. Often rich, luxurious and decadent.
These fragrances tend to evoke feelings of freshness and vibrancy. The fruity notes can range from citrus to sweet and succulent, and often include orange, lemon, blackcurrants, apples, figs, and tropical fruit. These typically open with a refreshing and invigorating effect. The heart can be more subtle and include floral or herbal accords and the base is often woody or sweet musk.Fruit: Blackcurrant - Blue Moon; Strawberry - Dhoon Glen; Fig - Little Fig Tree.
Gourmands: Deep spiced plums - Godred; Woody spices - Ballure Allure.
