The right perfume is more than just something that smells nice. The perfect smell reflects your personality and style as well as your favorite scents. It is a reflection of you as a person. A good scent reflects your own personal style without being too strong or overpowering. You don’t want a scent so strong it overpowers the people around you.
Here are some things to consider when choosing a good perfume:
Name Your Style
Your personal style will help you determine what sort of scent would work best for you. For example, if your style is preppy and bright, you might like a more floral scent. If your style is more bohemian, you might like a warmer scent.
Know Your Personality
Consider also your personality, as your scent will be a reflection of you. If you have a calm and quiet personality, a warmer scent with vanilla or musk tones might appeal to you. If you have an outgoing personality you might like a brighter scent like something citrusy or floral.
Own Your Self Goals
Part of choosing the right perfume is knowing what parts of your personality you want to project to the world around you. Do you want to bring your calm personality out, or do you want to bring out your fun and perky side?
Pick Your Tones
Every perfume is made up of undertones and overtones. Choosing the tones or types of scents that you enjoy can help you determine what one is best for you. Would you like warmer tones like vanilla or musk? Or would you like brighter tones like floral or citrusy scents?
Where To Go
Once you’ve determined what type of scent you are looking for, it’s time to find just the right one for you. A specialty store or a perfume counter in a department store is your best bet because they have a lot to choose from as well as professionals that can help pinpoint which perfumes will have the qualities that you are looking for. At a perfume specialty store or counter, you can smell and try a lot of different scents to determine which ones you like best.
Make Your Own
If you aren’t satisfied with the scent combinations that you find in the store, or if you just want something more personalized, you can always have your own perfume made. This process can be a little pricey, but it is worth it to find the perfect perfume for you. There are places you can use online, or a perfume specialty store may be able to help you with making your own perfume.
The scent you wear is about more than just smelling good, it is about what you project to the world around you. Just like you express yourself and make an impression with your wardrobe, you do the same with your perfume. Use this information to find a good perfume based on your own personal style.
