Finding Your Perfect Fragrance Style

How do you find that perfect signature scent? With so many choices on the market, how can you be sure which one is perfect for you without spending a fortune on experimenting?

Most major department stores have extensive beauty counters where you can try popular and current perfumes. This is a good place to start experimenting. The beauty consultants can give you suggestions based on what you already are wearing or what scents you like. At the counter you can experiment with the best marketed, highly produced current fragrances. But expensive marketing and trendiness is not for everyone. Maybe you are looking for a less complex scent or something from the past.

You can also try searching the internet for suggestions. Many major perfume houses offer scent profilers where you answer questions and it gives you a scent profile providing you with perfumes for you to try. This is great, but the drawback is you can't smell the options unless you send away for samples.

One option is trying lower cost perfume oil. Perfume oil comes in hundreds of single note scents, musk, and duplications of discontinued and current scents at a fraction of the cost. Want to try that scent your grandmother used to wear? You probably won't find it at your nearest department store and its possible the company is no longer making it or even in business. Most companies that produce perfume oil, will try to reformulate the scent for you if they have access to the recipe, which in many cases they do. Also contemporary alcohol based scents due to their alcohol content can be overwhelming at first. A gentle perfume oil that absorbs into your body will allow you to enjoy the true essence of the fragrance and not be so shocking to the senses.

Let's say you love the scent of lilac's in the springtime and have always wanted a simple lilac fragrance. Trying the perfume oil can offer you that option without hurting your wallet.

In creating a scent style you want to consider the time of year, where you are going and what you will be doing. What you wear in the heat of summer will not neccessarily be appropriate in winter time. Your body chemistry changes with the seasons and your scent should reflect that. Also a fragrance you wear on a date will not be the same fragrance you wear to work. Also if you are going to be sweating or active, the last thing you want to wear is a heavy fragrance that will clash with your natural odor.

Take your time to create a fragrance style. There is no rush run out and buy a thousand scents. Perfume is like any other thing in life, it is to be cultivated and enjoyed. Eventually you discover the right scent for you, whether its musk or lilac's, modern or discontinued. The above tips will help you get started on a scent journey that can last a life time.
