For most perfume connoisseurs, not wearing a scent makes them feel naked.
It’s like being yanked from a warm blanket. But there’s more to a beloved smell than meets the eye. In truth, perfume is more than just a collection of notes.
To prove it, we’ve compiled a list of fascinating fragrance facts that will make you fall even more in love with perfume.
