Fragrance of the Week

Why is 'Fragrance X' fragrance of the week.

The criteria for 'fragrance of the week' is fairly wide. It could be a well-loved fragrance, a classic scent, a forgotten gem or one we feel doesn't get enough attention.

A fragrance featured as fragrance of the week doesn't always mean we think it's a good fragrance - it may be an interesting novelty or something to get people thinking.

Why is there a big gap between the fragrances of the week (about six years)

We used to run a 'fragrance of the week' when we first started the site. We stopped for several years and began again in May 2008.
