Girl, Put Your Fragrance OnBy Kimberly Seals
Your signature scent is one way to leave an impact wherever you go. Although perfumes often come to mind when we think of fragrance, that is not the only option for expressing your aromatic impact on the world. Your favorite shea butter or oil (psst, we know where you can get some good ones) can also provide that signature scent that you’ve been looking for. But, what’s the big deal about a signature scent anyway?
Why Your Signature Scent Matters
Your fragrance says a lot about you and who you are. It can be one of the first things that people notice and something that they won’t soon forget. Nothing has the power to stir up our emotions quite like our sense of smell.
We all have those specific scents that can instantly take us on a journey through space and time. Before you even know it, a whiff of the right scent can send you on a trip down memory lane or to a relaxing day at the beach. Not to mention, your scent can be an energizer or a confidence boost for you throughout the day.
When it comes to fragrance, the possibilities are limitless. With that in mind, what do you want to evoke with your scent? And how can you find the right one for you?
How to Find Your Scent
Pick something that makes you feel good. The most important thing to remember when discovering your signature scent is that it should be a reflection of you. Sure something may smell good, but does it really speak to you?
Your lifestyle, personality, and personal style are all things to consider. What do you want to feel when you’re putting your fragrance on? Bold? Serene? Figure out what part of yourself you’d like to highlight and choose your scent accordingly.
Decide what you want to evoke. What do you want other people to feel when they interact with you? Your signature scent can seriously set the tone for your day to day life. Do you want to evoke comfort, excitement, calm, or something else entirely? That’s the beauty of your signature scent, it’s all up to you.
Don’t be afraid to try. What better way to find your signature scent than to take a few (or a bunch) on a test run? With so many options to choose from, there’s no rush to find the right fragrance for you. Try out different fragrances and formats until you find the right fragrance fit.
