“Your fragrance is your message, your scented slogan” said a wise perfumer whose words trigger me to think that your fragrance might be your invisible signature, an impression of your presence, personality or preferences, left on the world around.
Figuratively speaking your scent is like a window that provides a superficial view of you, your tastes, maybe even the type of food you are fond of or the type of music you like.
Knowing or in this context ‘knowledge of oneself’ is reassuring, knowing what works for you helps you be more assertive about how you project onto others. Familiarity and consistency often leads people to place more trust and form positive affiliations with you.
Your olfactive footprint results in you leaving a piece of yourself in the minds of people you meet such that they cannot remember you without at least remembering a hint of what you smell like.
But crowning a scent as your signature is not as daunting a task as you think it is.
Your signature scent fundamentally is a scent that’s most loved by YOU on YOU!
Just start by heading to your favorite departmental store that offers a huge range of fragrances from designer to niche, scour through the beautiful displays and just try, try, try!
Remember do not buy a fragrance right away. Let it sit on your skin through the day and check its performance the next morning, if you can still smell it and it still makes you as happy as it did when the sales exec first sprayed it on your wrist then go ahead and say I do!
Wear your favorite scent often, or often enough such that people smell it whenever they meet you. So pick a scent that’s great on performance, high quality, well rounded, and somewhat unique, and let it garner flattery your way. Read more on most luxurious and powerful scents of the season…
