- Start with the families of fragrances. According to David Moltz, co-founder of D.S. & Durga, "understanding the families is just like understanding music genres."
"When you listen to something, you want to know the difference between hip-hop and baroque — it's nice to know what is floral, fresh, woody, etc."
Although some perfumes straddle multiple fragrance families, being aware of the notes you prefer will help you swiftly focus your search for a trademark Signature Scent.
Fresh perfumes are frequently lemony and lighter, while floral scents are typically more feminine and mature. Spicy Signature Scent are typically warmer and sultrier.
2. Take trends into account, but approach with caution.
A few years ago, palo santo experienced a major renaissance, while green tea is just now starting to appear in modern findings. Take into account the fact that trends in fragrances are cyclical, just like those in fashion.
"Trends are a helpful cue to what is going on, but like anything else as you learn what you like, you learn to trust your own instincts," adds Moltz.
3. Give it some time.
Because each person's skin chemistry is distinct, each person's response to a given fragrance may differ from how it smells on a sampler paper.
The founder of ELLIS Brooklyn, Bee Shapiro, advises using a sampler or travel-sized bottle and wearing the scent for about a week before buying a full-sized bottle because our chemistry might vary throughout the day.
4.Think about the emotions you want your distinctive smell to evoke.
Do you intend to sound playful? Do you desire a sexy sensation? Think about this while you alternate between the leather accord and peony fragrances to get the perfect one.
According to Shapiro, "It should make them into their ideal selves, this sense of recognition with a drop of aspiration." "When you apply the fragrance, it should feel like both who you are and who you want to be, not just who you are."
