Here's A Fool-Proof Guide To Finding Your Signature Scent

Team Interns , 19 Dec 2018


Perfumes are one of the most underrated items in anyone’s vanity. Smelling good not only makes us feel good, but it also makes us instantly more attractive. Finding your signature scent is key to building your personality as well as your sex appeal—your scent has more of an impact than you realise. It reflects your personality as an individual, without saying a single word.
I say ‘unique smell’ because according to perfume experts, each perfume reacts differently to different people because of our pheromones. Your signature scent should be a familiar scent your loved ones can remember you by, and one that is compatible with your personality. If you’re confused about what scent suits you best, keep reading to find out.

1. Floral Scents


Floral scents are light and sweet. Floral scents can be very sweet, mellow or sharp, depending on your preference. If your budget is high, Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Eau de Parfum is a wonderful pick for a floral scent. If your budget is a little tight, Apple Scent by Zara is also a good pick.

2. Fruity Scents


Fruity scents are usually mixed with floral scents and hence smell quite similar. However, they are much sweeter than floral scents and are perfect for wearing during the daytime.  L’Elixir Eau De Parfumby Nina Ricci is perfect for a fruity, luxurious pick whereas Killer Queen by Katy Perry is a more budget-friendly alternative.

3. Citrus Scents


Citrus scents smell like oranges and lemons. They can be fresh or sharp, depending on what your preferences are. Chanel’s Eau Fraîche is expensive but will make you feel like a million bucks everytime you wear it! Alternatively,  The Body Shop Kistna Eau De Toilette is an affordable pick that will also add some much-needed zest to your life.

4. Woody Scents


Woody scents are warm, earthy and can smell quite spicy and nutty as well. Paco Rabanne’s One Million Intense is a popular perfume with woody scents but it priced on the higher side. Mens Amalfi Bleu Eau De Toilette by SKINN is a more affordable pick.

5. Aromatic Scents


Aromatic scents are light, fresh and aromatic. They are perfect for the summer and smell comfortable.  L’eau D’issey by Issey Miyake is an expensive pick and Davidoff‘s Clear Water is a cheaper alternative to good aromatic scents.

6. Ouds

Ouds are originally derived from Agarwood. They are extremely potent and carry a luxurious scent. Ouds were originally more popular in Middle-eastern countries but are now gaining popularity in the West as well. Among the luxurious ones, Tom Ford‘s Noir De Noir is definitely a top pick.
