If you’re having deciding what kind of perfume you should buy, take a look at your personality. It could be the starting point you need.
Fragrance can evoke memories, ideas, and personality traits just like fashion and beauty can. Read about the different fragrance families and tell us which one you identify with most.
The sweet tooth
Never one to pass up a piece of cake, you love your sugary-sweet confections as much as your collection of floral china. Feminine whimsy describes your style to a tee, and you crave fruity, candied scents to express your girlish personality.
We recommend: Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noire
You’re a hiking and biking machine. Your adventurous spirit takes you to mountains, forests, glaciers, and lakes, but that doesn’t mean you have to smell like sweat 24-7. You’re attracted to more unisex fragrances with masculine notes of wood, leather, greenery, and musk. Think Old Spice, feminized.
We recommend: John Paul Gaultier’s Gaultier2
You’re known to wander around antique shops and read classic love stories, and you admire glamorous women in history. With a passion for vintage aesthetics, you covet your grandmother’s violet-scented Guerlain fragrance. Powdery and floral scents remind you of a more refined era, and old-school perfumery reigns supreme.
We recommend: Givenchy’s Black Dahlia
The beach goddess
You live for the sea, sand, and sun. Whether you surf or sunbathe, you’re at your most relaxed by the beach. Tropical, marine, and citrus notes remind you of your favorite vacations, so why not smell like the beach, year-round?
We recommend: Ralph Lauren’s Big Pony for Women 1 (Blue)
As a certified culture junkie, you’ll travel anywhere, learn any language, and find inspiration everywhere you go. You’re most intrigued by the global bazaar – exotic spices, textures, fabrics, and colors combine and contrast for dazzling sights. Potent oriental notes of amber, patchouli, and other spices conjure your nomadic spirit.
We recommend: Gucci’s Guilty Intense
