Let’s be honest, choosing fragrance can be a complex business. Just when you thought it was fine to get fresh with sporty scents, more complex scents come along and seduces us to get down and dirty! Relax it’s fine to be an olfactory swinger and we think that if you’re looking for a unique and interesting fragrance for your collection these are worth exploring.
