Humans are very much influenced by scent. That’s not to say you have to wear perfume all the time; but it’s certainly nice to know that your fragrance is having a positive impact on those around you

Recent studies have found that scent has the power to alter mood (both your own and others around you). That’s highly useful when you’re in a meeting with a client or out on a first date! It’s fun to get playful with fragrance too. Experiment with different types until you find the one that’s ideal for you! 

When figuring out what’s the best perfume for you, consider the following:

  • Where will you wear it? Is it mainly for work or do you want it to be suitable for evening-wear or during weekend activites?
  • What impression do you want to make? Do you want your fragrance to be alluring, invigorating or fresh, for example?
  • Do you want something classic, or more forward-thinking? Some scents are timeless, while others are very contemporary. Think about what sort of smells you love.
  • Do you like something different? If so, look for fragrances that have unusual ingredients that may not be carried in most standard market perfumes for women.
