What is a scent?
In a more romantic way, a scent refers to the perfume and fragrance that comes from a perfumed composition.
A scent is the gift of a unique smelling experience. Associated with an identity, a season, or a desire, it results in a pleasant smell that will awaken your nose and your senses: through scents, indulge in olfactory poetry. In perfumery, a scent is synonymous with the personality of the person who will use it. It illustrates your character traits and what defines you, which is why it is important to know how to choose and combine your scents from all angles:
- eau de parfum ;
- scented candle ;
- body and face care ;
- shower gel ;
- essential oils ;
- pillow mist;
There are as many scent possibilities as there are eau de parfums to bring a touch of personalisation to your everyday life. For a home fragrance with floral and perfumed colours, opt for a 100% French scent with Adopt scented candles.
