Easily recognisable and the largest family of them all, floral contains the widest variety of ingredients most of which are flowers. It has a smell that is the most familiar to us, with rose and jasmine being star names. In fact, most floral perfumes will have one (soliflore), or many of these (bouquet) at the heart of their fragrance formula. Flowers are great at being the stand out signature ingredient but also sitting gently in the middle to bring balance to a fragrance. Other flowers popular in the floral family are orange blossom, peony and gardenia.
