Types of fragrance.
Types of fragrance are categorized into a range of scent families marked by their “notes.” These may include floral, citrus, amber, chypre, or a combination of each. You can explore each of these fragrance notes when shopping Clinique’s classic and cult favorite fragrances.
Florals are soft, delicate bouquets of fragrance that bloom beautifully on the skin.
Citruses are bright, tangy, invigorating. Our-citrus-inspired scents are like a spritz of sunshine.
Ambers are warm and exotic–some might say dramatic.
Chypres are rich and lingering. These warm and wonderfully complex scents are based on mossy, patchouli-laced accords.
How to find the right fragrance for you.
Our Consultants are often asked: which fragrance is best for me? Testing a fragrance can be as fun as trying on a new look, but our fragrance experts recommend testing only three at a time. If possible, start with light citrus and floral fragrances, then move on to wood and amber scents. If you love a fragrance at first sniff, spritz it onto your arm and check back after twenty minutes to sample how it works.
