Scent Descriptions

The scent descriptions below have been created to give you a basic and general understanding of how an aroma may be interpreted. However, this is by no means a definitive and exact description as each nose tends to interpret aroma quite differently. As such we make no warranty or guarantee that you or your customers will concur and agree with these scent descriptions.
