Choosing a perfume that suits your personality can be a daunting task.
Perfume is an art form, and it’s all about expressing yourself. What you wear to work, how you style your hair, and even how you wear your makeup can all be considered forms of self-expression. And when it comes to perfume, the way you choose to express yourself with scent can be just as much of an art as painting or photography—and just as much fun!
Choosing a perfume is a lot like picking out the right outfit. It should fit your personality, your mood, and the occasion. If you’re looking for a scent that fits all of those criteria, here are some tips.
Choose a scent that reflects who you are and what makes you feel good about yourself. When choosing new clothes or accessories, you think about whether they make you feel confident or empowered and whether they fit with the way others see you as well as how YOU see yourself. The same goes for perfume: choose something that makes YOU feel good about yourself and your choices!
Consider the occasion
If you’re going to be wearing a certain scent every day, then maybe it’s better to choose something that can be versatile enough to work with different outfits and environments. If you’re only going to wear it occasionally, though—like on special occasions—then maybe go ahead and pick something more specific (like floral or musky scents).
Think about your lifestyle
If you’re an outdoorsy person who loves hiking and camping, you might want something fresh and clean-smelling—but if you’re someone who works in an office environment all day long, maybe something more sweet and musky would be better suited to your lifestyle.
The first thing you should do when choosing a new perfume is decide what type of scent you want. Do you like floral smells? Or would you prefer something more floral? Do you like fruity scents or spicy ones? Think about what kind of person you are when choosing your perfume—this will help narrow down your choices.
Type of Perfume
There are many different types of perfumes, including eau de toilette (EDT), eau de parfum (EDP), and eau de cologne (EDC). EDP is the strongest form of perfume; EDT is milder than EDP; and EDC is lighter than both EDT and EDP. Each type has its own benefits: EDP lasts longer than EDT or EDC; EDT lasts longer than EDC but not as long as EDP. and EDC has the shortest longevity of all three types of perfumes.
Know what makes YOU feel good!
Sometimes we get caught up in trying to choose perfumes based on what other people like or what we think is popular or trendy. While those things can help sometimes, they aren’t always right. Instead of feeling like you HAVE to choose something because everyone else likes it, try asking yourself: “What makes me feel good?”
In the digital age of social media, you have the power to create your own personal brand, so why not use that power to give yourself a personal scent? There are many different aspects of your personality that make up who you are so try to pay attention to what catches your attention. You don’t have to be tied down by a signature scent but take note of what smells draw your interest.
