It's time to choose your signature scent, but we know how hard it can be to find just the right scent. When it comes to perfume, each subtle note and detail can really make an impression, so choosing something that represents who you is a good way to make that first impression a memorable one . Here are some tips aon mixing your personality with the right aroma.
The Life of the Party
If you command the attention of the room wherever you go, stand out with a perfume that captures that confidence while playing up your fun side.
Fragrance: Black Opium, Yves Saint Laurent
Notes: coffee, vanilla, jasmine, pear, orange blossom, patchouli
Review: Black Opium is soft and feminine while playing the balancing act with rocker-chic. The floral notes become extremely approachable with the hint of coffee.
Whether you are a hopeless romantic or just someone who cannot help but spread smiles to those you interact with, a perfume with light and airy floral combinations will perfectly pair with that charm.
Fragrance: Walk On Air, Kate Spade
Notes: linden blossom, neroli, bergamot, lily of the valley, magnola, jasmine, white iris
Review: Walk On Air is soft and dreamy. The variety of floral notes does not distract the senses with harsh amounts. Instead, Kate Spade has given us a melody of scents that could easily be taken straight from a breathtaking garden.
The Sexy and Spontaneous
If you have a bit of mystery to your image and like it that way, try a deeper scent. By choosing a perfume with rich notes balanced by classic staples, you can achieve a sexy and sultry essence.
Fragrance: Nirvana Black, Elizabeth and James
Notes: violet, sandalwood, vanilla
Review: Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen hit it out of the park with their Nirvana duo, but Nirvana Black has everything we love. This is the perfect formula for sophistication with a masculine twist and is flawless for every situation.
Are you wanting a more subtle scent that still gives off a delightful air? Stick with a perfume that has a few simple notes that stand out, rather than a complex formula.
Fragrance: Live Joyously, Philosophy
Notes: pink peonies, tangerine, patchouli
Review:The focus on peonies is wonderfully paired with a bite of citrus and played down with patchouli, but not by much! Live Joyously is a scent that will not overwhelm those who come close. Instead, the light fragrance will most likely hit them without even noticing.
The Free Spirit
Looking for something that can really remind you of your connection to the nature around you? Go for a natural pairing of fruits and florals.
Fragrance: Rhythm, Burberry Brit
Notes: lemon, orange, jasmine, lotus blossom, lilac, amber
Review:Rhythm acts as a classic staple of floral perfume that received a wild and irresistible makeover. The notes combine into a delightful exotic aroma while deriving from something as simple as a lemon and a bit of jasmine.
The Beach Bum
Are you someone who struggles through spring at the exciting thought of a just-out-of-reach summer? Embrace your daydreams and channel your future into your current perfume.
Fragrance: Costa Azzurra, Tom Ford
Notes: Oak, Driftwood, Lavender, Vanilla
Review: Tom Ford gives us a much-needed glimpse into a beach-filled future. The combination of natural driftwood and oak bring us that outdoorsy aroma while blending with scents that make you feel like vacation is starting early.
If you are someone who is not quite ready to commit to one signature spring fragrance, fear not! Try out a collection set that has a little bit of everything while remaining in a consistent grouping of scents.
Fragrance: Rock the Ages collection, Jo Malone
The Rock the Ages collection allows you to try out five scents that each explore a different historical era with unique note pairings. One day experience an aroma of pomegranate and Casablanca lily, and the next, birch and black pepper.
With these tips, you are well on your way to picking out the perfect scent to embody your personality this spring. However, feel free to check out all of these delightful fragrances because who knows, one of these could be better suited for your summer scent!
