Your signature scent is you. It’s your calling card, it’s the sign that lets everyone know you’ve entered the room and it’s of vital importance that you choose one that fits you. Let’s be honest here, when you were young you probably played with a lot of different fragrances; maybe you spent some time at your older sister’s vanity playing with whatever she had available, or maybe you simply bought what you could afford from the store.
Maybe information wasn’t free flowing, and establishing your signature scent was a matter of great difficulty. We know how it works, we’ve all been there. Now, however, you have so many different potential scents to choose from and you’ve had the practice, so how do you go about finding your signature scent?
Finding ‘You’ Amongst the Endless Products
Finding your scent is about finding yourself and that’s exactly what you’ll need to do first. It starts with determining your type of fragrance – there are plenty of sub-types, but who are you, really?
Floral Type – You guessed it, flowers are all rage when it comes to fragrances, but are you the floral type? There are so many different ways to present yourself as a floral fragrance. You could be a very refined individual or you could be someone who enjoys the occasional romp through the woods – the choices are pretty much endless, but the fineness that floral can bring to your life simply cannot be denied.
Fresh – Floral can sometimes over overly ‘girly’ or feminine, and there are those who just don’t appreciate it. For such people we have the fresh solution, which is outstanding for those who are a bit more androgynous than others. Fresh scents are often for those who enjoy candles or soaps, or even laundry detergent.
Warm – You choose if you are an inviting person. You love to be social, you love to entertain and most importantly, you love to relax. You know how to have fun but you also know how to get things done – and that’s what the warm variant represents.
Finding your Scent
Figuring out just where you fit on the ‘scent spectrum’ can be a bit of a challenge but not impossible. You can play around, figure it out through trial and error, or you can use something like the signature scent finder from ‘She Knows’ (http://www.sheknows.com/beauty-and-style/quizzes/what-s-your-signature-scent). No matter how you choose to go about it, the most important thing for you to remember is that while your scent does not define who you are, it does define how you present yourself to the rest of the world. Who do you want to be? Find your signature scent and figure it out.
