Scent Selective’s perfume collector Luna Fortes Found her passion in testing and reviewing new releases of trending modern brands. From a journey that started 14 years ago in early 2008 Luna Fortes has purchased over 700+ bottles of fragrances, but only kept around 300 for her personal collection.
Each Scent Selective team member works to contribute to Luna’s collection, as her approval of fragrances is seen as a challenge within the fragrance reviewing team.
Even though Luna reviewed thousands of perfumes she still hasn’t found the one she’d call a “signature” fragrance. Throughout her numerous reviews, Luna will keep searching for the ultimate fragrance, while guiding you with her expertise.
Luna’s perfume collection is made up mostly of intense fruity and floral scents that according to her reflect highly on her personality, and bring out the best of her confidence.
From Malaga Spain, Luna shares her many reviews with the team to help create engaging content, enabling Scent Selective to live up to its title as the ultimate destination for fragrance reviews.

How We Test and Rate Fragrances
A typical day for the Scent Selective team consists mainly of smelling different fragrances and writing detailed, well-rounded, and honest reviews.
We provide comprehensive and honest reviews of both classic and modern fragrances and point you to the best possible prices.
Because we are all uniquely passionate about what we do, we will often avoid rating scents that don’t evoke any emotional reaction or are highly generic and perhaps overrated in the team’s opinion.
The key factors we look for before any fragrance evaluations are quality and uniqueness. If a scent is not unique or fails to offer a distinctive scent it will likely not make our lists of the best fragrances.
When rating our fragrances we separately measure each fragrance as a team. We use personal preference, previous user reviews, and professional user reviews, then rate the scent’s overall performance, longevity, and complexin.
To get the best results we then average the score of each separate review to create a summed-up, well-sampled rating placed under each fragrance.
All ratings must be agreed upon by the team as a whole, and if there is an objection we usually do a re-test to ensure accuracy.
