Perfumes and the extraction of scents is something that has been around for many millennia, earliest recording dating to 1200 BCE. With that and the many different types of scents, it can be hard to find your signature scent that makes a statement.
It’s not just the initial scent either. There are layers of scent in perfumes that provide all-day fragrance.
The top notes are what you smell right away, and generally are what make you fall in love with it. However, you should also consider the heart notes and base notes that will give you a long-lasting scent in a lighter note.
Another aspect are the scents themselves. For floral notes, look for something that smells natural and start with your favorite flowers for inspiration. If you’re looking for a fresh fragrance, look for something that is citrusy.
To get depth from your perfume, try a fruity scent. These can all be great as top notes or heart notes for that pop of irresistible fragrance.
Spices are other great scents that can add warmth to your signature scent. You can go for sweet spices like cinnamon, or try a more natural herbal smell like basil.
Finally, don’t forget about musk scents that add richness to a perfume for a longer lasting fragrance.
Blending scents is what makes a perfume great and unique. Check out these incredible perfumes and find your signature scent!
