The deeper I get into colognes and fragrance, the more confused I seem to get. What are the basic groupings of fragrance: spice, floral, etc. Or are there any agreed upon groupings for men's or women's. Then beyond that, I have no idea what to do with categories like "soapy" or "vetiver." What someone calls soapy, someone else says that is not soapy. Or even a cologne called vetiver, I have seen people say it doesn't smell like vetiver. How can I even tell what vetiver or soapy smells like!? I know certain ones like coffee, vanilla, but anything I don't already know, I have no idea how to figure it out. Could anyone suggest some articles, books, websites etc to help me. I love this stuff, but I like to approach it in a linear fashion.
