How to Choose Your Signature Scent

Choosing the perfect fragrance for yourself can be an exciting adventure. It’s important to select one that resonates with your personality.

Before you decide, it is important to test out different notes and combinations – whether it’s a citrus, floral or woody fragrance. Don’t forget to check the balance of top, middle and base notes as this will determine how long-lasting the scent will be.

To choose the right scent, consider which notes and properties appeal to you the most. Think about which types of scents have an emotional connection for you like warm spices or florals.

Seek out advice from someone who knows your taste well. Make sure to sample each one on your skin since the chemistry between a person’s body and the fragrance will ultimately determine how it smells.

Also consider perfume strength and longevity. In terms of cost, concentrated perfume is the most expensive, followed by eau de parfum, eau de toilette and eau de cologne.

Once you have settled on a signature scent, wear it liberally and enjoy. If you can’t decide on just one, consider building a fragrance wardrobe of scents! The perfect fragrance wardrobe consists of at least one go-to scent for special occasions, as well as others that can be used to match different moods – for example, an everyday fragrance and an evening scent.
