How to Choose Your Right Fragrance

fragrancesIf you have been around people long enough, you may start to notice how their scent stays with them. Scents are a calling card, and one impression you can make on someone. People use all their senses to remember, so the fragrance you choose will have a lasting impact on the people around you. So how do you make the right fragrance choice for you? Like finding the perfect dress or accessories to match your personality, choosing the right fragrance is mostly about your style and preferences.

Choosing a fragrance should showcase your personality. If you are the independent type, for example, you should try to find signature scents that you enjoy. Original scents are perfect for people who think outside the box. Most fragrances, like our Carolina Rain, are sold in specific boutique stores. It can be harder to search for these fragrances, because you have to shop different locations, however if you want something unique that reflects your personality, go original.

Some people get fashion tips from trends. Usually if you like to follow trends you should look for fragrances that are designed by celebrities. There's a reason why people like J-Lo, Britney Spears and others are so successful marketing fragrances. They are Hollywood and up on the latest trends. Celebs are always fitted in the latest fashion trends, which many people copy (or opt for more affordable versions). So it makes sense they are also outfitted with signature scents.

Some people can't settle. If you are someone with a closet full of shoes, heels, etc., you may find choosing one fragrance too daunting. A lot of people like to have different signature scents. Maybe you have a scent for the office, and a special scent for date night with your significant other. It can also be fun to switch your fragrance based on the seasons. There are dozens of wonderful scents that are specific to the time of the year. So if you get bored easily don't be afraid to mix it up and keep people guessing!

Last, but not least, you should always take yourself into consideration. Why type of skin do you have? If your skin tends to stay dry, you'll need a stronger fragrance because it will dissipate more quickly. In that case you'll need a fragrance that is more concentrated. If you have naturally oily skin, on the other hand, opt for something more subtitle that won't overpower a room.
