Figuring out which fragrance is right for you can be a bit tricky at times. To help ease your anxieties about finding your perfect scent, we’ve come up with a few tricks of our own. Read through them below!
Get Acquainted With Your Current Fragrances
Chances are you have a few perfumes and candles laying around you can sniff to figure out which scents speak to you. Once you’ve picked out some that really set your heart ablaze, look up their exact notes. Some may say they’re mainly lavender, but might have some other fragrances lingering about.
Write Down Scents You Know You Love
We all have a few tried and true scents we often gravitate towards when picking out a fragrance. Write. Them. Down. It always helps to have them handy when deciding on a new fragrance, that way you can look through the notes and see if they match some of the smells on your list.
Try a Few at a Time
Can’t decide on one fragrance? Test out a couple. We all are complex beings who like many different things, so if you want to try a variety of scents all at once, go for it. It’ll only help you further discover what you like and don’t like.
Take a Quiz
There are quite a few fragrance quizzes that exist on the world wide web, so don’t be shy—take them! It doesn’t hurt to really understand your fragrance profile in a digestible way that doesn’t require you to do too much work.
When You Know, You Know
Ultimately, the way to know a fragrance is right for you is when you keep coming back to smell it, because you can’t get it out of your head. As with many things in life, you’ll simply just know when you’ve found the scent you want to be enveloped in for the rest of your life. Always trust your intuition.
