How To Choose Your Signature Scent

Most of us have developed a signature style over the years. We have built a unique image of ourselves that we portray to others hoping to make a lasting impression.

But remember that memorable characteristics rely on a combination of senses, not just sight. Therefore, it’s important to find your signature scent to incorporate into your signature style.  

What Is A Signature Scent?

A signature scent is a scent that delineates you and embodies your personality. Think of it as an extension of who you are. It says things about your that you might find difficult to articulate in words.

Know What You Want Your Scent To Say About You

Are you bold and forthright, or are you more shy and reserved? You’ll find that the fragrances that appeal to you will mirror your personality traits.

Scents can be broken up into four main categories: floral, oriental, woody and fresh. Each type has distinctive characteristics, and one of them will be more attractive to you than any of the others.

Research shows that people that favour each one of the four categories are quite likely to share characteristics. For example, people that like floral scents are usually more down to earth, easy going and quick to smile.

So, unwittingly, your favourite fragrance will already be telling much about your personality, even on a subconscious level. Be sure that your signature fragrance category reflects the image that you wish to portray.

Test The Scent On Your Skin

Blotters and spraying into the air are effective ways of getting a general sense of a scent. However, the oils used to create perfumes are volatile and will interact with your skin, resulting in a different scent than the one on the blotter, in the air, or even on another person.  

The best way to test a fragrance is to spray it directly onto your skin. Leave it to settle and dry ‒ no rubbing. Wait 30 minutes to 1 hour before inhaling the scent to get a more accurate “smell test” result.

Choose Your Signature Scent

The best advice is twofold. Firstly, you will need to try different scents to narrow down which ones appeal to you and represent the “smell” you are going for.  

Secondly, trust your instincts. You will know you have a winner when you love the fragrance, and you get plenty of compliments on it too.Homage Perfume has a full range of fragrances to choose from when seeking your signature scent.  Contact us today to find out how we can make you feel beautiful and confident by bringing you world-class quality perfumes at affordable prices.
