In the fragrance industry, the universe is clearly divided into two distinct worlds - fine fragrance and functional fragrance. While both revolve around the creativity and talent of perfumers to create scents, the two are quite different in terms of purpose and approach.
A good analogy of the difference might be comparing a live music concert (fine fragrance) to the soundtrack of a movie (functional fragrance).
