Perfume And Personality: 5 Tips For Choosing Your Fragrance

The choice of a perfume says a lot about the personality of the person who wears it! Whether it's floral or woody, your favorite fragrance reveals certain traits of your character. If you haven't found the perfect perfume that suits you yet, know that it's not an easy task! To help you, here are 5 tips for choosing your perfume.

1- Floral or fern notes for discreet personalities.

The first tip to find the perfect match between perfume and personality is to determine whether one is more of an extraverted or introverted person. It is obvious that powerful perfumes that will catch the attention of everyone we meet do not correspond to introverted personalities.

If you are naturally more discreet or even shy, your preference will most likely be towards floral notes if you are a woman or fragrances from the fern family if you are a man.

It should also be noted that perfumes from this family do not smell like ferns, but rather fresh herb notes such as sage, basil, or mint. These perfumes that give off a sense of freshness and cleanliness are also a good choice for athletic individuals.

As for floral perfumes, they generally express tenderness and romance, but with nuances from one perfume to another, of course...

2- Oriental fragrances for strong personalities.

On the contrary, people with a strong and assertive character often prefer oriental perfumes, with soft and warm base notes.

Perfumes in this olfactory family stand out from others for their power and sensuality. They usually contain notes of vanilla, cinnamon, or coriander that may not suit everyone.

An oriental perfume is a good choice for a sensual, passionate personality, in love with adventure and exoticism. If you like to be noticed, you can be sure that with this type of fragrance, you will leave behind seductive scents in your wake...

3- Woody fragrances for nature lovers

The agreement between fragrance and personality may be easier to find for nature lovers. Those who enjoy walking in the forest generally appreciate woody scents.

These fragrances that exude notes of cedar, sandalwood, or vetiver evoke the scent of forests or undergrowth. They are therefore well suited for people who enjoy reconnecting with nature and engaging in outdoor activities.

However, it should be noted that this family of fragrances is not exclusively reserved for woodsmen and seasoned hikers... Woody notes also have an elegant, natural, and understated side, perfect for individuals seeking a safe bet in the world of perfumes.

4- The hesperides for sparkling personalities.

In the field of perfumes, hesperides refers to fragrances that contain citrus notes such as lemon, mandarin, bergamot, or grapefruit.

With their playful freshness, perfumes from this family are well-suited for dynamic and sparkling individuals.

Because they are fresh and light, hesperidic perfumes are perfect for summer. If you need to give a perfume to someone born during this time of year, it is a safe choice, regardless of their personality...

It is also within the hesperidic family that colognes are classified, which are light perfumes that can be worn by both men and women.

5- Leather to express quiet strength

Another more complex agreement between fragrance and personality concerns the family of leathers, that is, perfumes that evoke the smell of leather.

These are mostly masculine perfumes with notes of wood, tobacco, and leather, sometimes combined with notes of incense or honey.

This complex fragrance gives off an impression of quiet strength. It suits calm and confident men who exude confidence and serenity.

Even though the previous 5 tips can guide you in the right direction, do not hesitate to consult the salespeople in perfume and cosmetics stores if you want to buy a perfume for the first time or give it as a gift to someone. This way, you will increase your chances of making the right choice.
