There are so many fragrances to choose from that it can be really over whelming to know which kind of perfume you should go for. Wouldn’t it be useful if shops helped us out and arranged them by type, in the same way that skin care products are sold? We’ve put together this guide to help you find the right type next time you go to buy a perfume.
Clean Smells
Some scents can be categorised as ‘clean scents’, they include the smell of herbs and newly cut grass, or the smell of your skin when you’re just out of the shower. These smells are sporty and make you feel refreshed and invigorated. Look for perfumes that have subtle notes of grapefruit, bergamot, lavender, basil, jasmine, and mint.
Sophisticated Smells
Are you very into fashion? Do you enjoy dressing up? If so, consider trying a fragrance that makes a statement with mossy, woody notes or those with sandalwood, rose, and dark chocolate.
Sexy Smells
If you’re a bit of a show off, maybe you’d like something a little racy to get you and your partner in the mood! Look for a perfume with sultry, spicy elements to get things going.
Feminine Smells
For the hopeless romantic who prefers heels to flats there are fruity, floral fragrances. Try scents with rose, citrus, plum and vanilla notes.
There are some basic things to consider when selecting a perfume, including your personality type. Considering what kind of smells you like whilst being overwhelmed by multiple fragrances at a department store counter is stimulation overload. We hope the above tips may help simplify the decision on what perfume to buy in the future.
