Which perfume suits me?
It’s a question most of us have asked ourselves at one point. We’re sorry, but there is no right answer. There are no scents which will fit all redheads, Type 0 negatives, Leos or basketball players. Which perfume is best for you is something you’ll simply have to find out for yourself. But like most things, your fragrance preferences may likely change over the years. One of the best ways to find a perfume that suits you is to take some time to analyse which ingredients you like, how they make you feel. Comforting? Soft spices and sweet smells, like vanilla and honey, make a lot of people feel snug and secure. Looking for something fresh? Citrus is an instant pick me up. Seductive? A combination of spice and voluptuous white flowers flirt outrageously. Want to feel powerful? A straight backed cedar wood blended with smooth moss signals confidence.
You’ve heard of fragrance families, which may be a great help. Technically, fragrance families are simply a classification system the perfume industry has used for years, in order to distinguish one scent from another and place individual perfumes into olfactory groups, based on their main characteristics. It’s part of the language of scent, which by the way, you’re getting better at just by being a Sniph subscriber. The language of scent makes it easier to create and describe a product that’s based on this elusive sense. You’ll learn more about fragrance families and the Frangrace Wheel later on. Here, we’ve briefly described four groups of scents to help you to choose a perfume.
Feel free to experiment – in fact, we highly encourage it! So if you’ve found an olfactory group you love, congratulations! Within this, you’re bound to find several scents to treasure. If not, keep visiting the different fragrance families. And unlike some families, you can leave at any time without any hard feelings…
