The Concept

Its very simple really. People are complex. Even on a daily basis we can have a number of different moods, different situations, even different locations. We were challenged by the idea of the fact that we can change our clothes, our makeup our hair even our skin routines to accommodate all of our own unique situations so why shouldn´t we do the same with our fragrance?

We felt a need to disrupt the fragrance world and the rather conservative and tradition way the fragrance world has historically operated.

It comes back to the fact that we all have our favourite signature fragrance the “thats me” signature scent and we tend to stick with it. So, we needed to create unique stand alone signature scents that can be easily personalised to keep the user in the NOW.

Through using knowledge and science, by keeping our ingredient lists short and relying on all of the members of the Olfactive family we set about creating the ultimate layering concept, make it understandable and empowering.

All of our eau de parfum's are unique, stand alone signature scents which blend smoothly in any combination to follow however you feel, where ever you are.

To help us, only the best French Perfumers in the world would do…so we went to Paris in order to collaborate with the worlds leading perfume house, responsible for some of the most successful and prestigious fragrances.

How does
layering work?

Layering

Layering fragrances might sound complicated but is simple.

Layering allows you to find your signature scent – whether for a special day, occasion or for the season, it is one that is uniquely you.

When worn alone a fragrance can be woody, fresh, crisp, deep, warm or floral. when layered, it can transform into a totally new experience.

Our formula

Traditionally a fragrance formula can include a very large number of ingredients making them hard to layer. N.C.P. Olfactive fragrances are created using much fewer ingredients in order to create the best conditions for all fragrances to be layered whilst care is taken to maintain complexity and depth to each individual fragrance.

They are created using all olfactive groups to cover the whole spectrum of scents enabling endless combinations and new signature creations for individuals. Simply change the mood of your favourite signature scent or create completely new expressions to keep the people around you guessing.

Pairing

Imagine yin and yang. It is all about balance.

If you like deeper fragrances, pair with a sparkling floral or a citrus to lighten and brighten.

Pair a bright fresh top note with heavier back notes.

Increase the richness of a fragrance by layering a scent that is more background heavy (i.e. vanilla, woods, musks) and create a lighter rendition by layering fresh or fruity notes on top.

Layering keeps things personal and in the now.

Olfactive families

What are Olfactive families?

The adjective “olfactive” comes from the root word “olfactory”, which simply relates to the sense of smell. Considering perfumes ability to mimic or even create a particular scent, this word became strongly associated with perfumery.

To help us understand perfume and facilitate functioning within this capturing field, scents have been classified into several families, which function as a guide to deciphering a perfume composition.

How to classify olfactive families?

With a plethora of about 1500 raw materials, perfumery might seem a dense environment to navigate but if you know the categories of olfactive families, you will feel at ease when discussing various perfumes from around the world or when composing your own scent!

The key thing to know is that the various fragrance families fall into simple categories of feminine, masculine or neutral scents. After that, scents are grouped into seven olfactive families based on their origin.
