How To Pick Your Signature Scent

The power of scent is undeniable. Scent can trigger physical and psychological changes. The fragrance department in stores is often very crowded and can be overwhelming. It can be difficult to find the right fragrance.

When choosing a fragrance first decide how strong you would like it to be. Perfume or “parfum” is 22% essential oils, making it the most expensive and strongest. Eau de Parfum is second in strength, and contains 15-22% essential oils. Eau de Toilette contains 8-15% essential oils. Eau de Cologne contains 4% essential oils, making it usually inexpensive.

Perfumes are most commonly divided into five separate categories. The five most common note categories to choose from are woodsy, floral, fruity, oceanic, and spices. Decide which category you fit under, ask yourself: Do you love the smell of flowers? Do you enjoy the smell of sweet fruits? Do you want your perfume to smell like the ocean? Are you outgoing or quiet? Determine the scents that impact you the most.

Don’t choose a fragrance because the packaging is pretty or your favorite celebrity is the face of the fragrance. The outside of the fragrance doesn’t always determine the inside. One important point to consider is the season. Lighter scents are better for summer such as Echo by Davidoff. In winter, the air is dry and tends to evaporate scents more quickly. Save heavier fragrances for the winter. A great winter fragrance is Euphoria by Calvin Klein. Never be afraid to switch up your scents depending on day or night and summer or winter.

Every fragrance has three notes; top, middle, and base. The top note is what you smell when you first spray a fragrance. It only lasts about a minute. The middle of the perfume can last for up to 30 minutes after applying. The base of the perfume, which is what you smell after it mixes with your skin and body type, can be enjoyed up to two hours or longer after applying your perfume. Everyone’s skin reacts differently producing unique middle and base notes to their individual body chemistry.

Testing fragrance at the perfume counter at a department store may not always be the best way to determine which fragrance works for you. It is hard to tell how a fragrance smells on you with other fragrances roaming in the air. Taking a fragrance home and trying it for a few hours is the best way to see if it’s the right perfume. Spritzing perfume on your pulse points is the best way to see how your skin type reacts to it; such as your wrists and neck. offers the perfect opportunity to sample a fragrance at home without purchasing an entire bottle.
