Our sense of smell is one of the strongest senses we have – not only does it have the ability to help us identify certain people, places and things, it has one of the strongest memory associations. That means the perfume you wear not only gives off a sweet smell to people you meet today, but it might be what you’re remembered by later, so you better make sure you pick a good signature scent!
Choosing your signature scent can be somewhat challenging. You have to consider what types of scents best fit your personality, then also make sure those notes work with your body’s chemistry. You may love a musky scent, but when you wear it it doesn’t smell good on you. Same goes for flowery or warm vanilla scents.
It may take some trial and error to make sure what you like smells best on you, but you can find the type of scent that fits you best. One place to start may be following a celebrity’s lead. If you already admire Jennifer Aniston’s carefree style, for instance, find out what she wears or pick up her signature fragrance.
Find out what it is you like. You may have a handful of favorite perfumes – try to identify what it is you like about them – is it the warm vanilla notes? The florals? The musk? Find out to make shopping easier.
