Fragrance is so much more than a scent, it’s about confidence and sense of self. From timeless classics to new aromas, the perfect fragrance is waiting for you. It might be invisible, but it leaves a lasting impression and is as much a part of our identity as how we dress and present ourselves. It’s a powerful way to make a positive first impression – or leave a lasting one.
Fragrance is the perfect gift for you, her or him
Whether you have a signature perfume or cologne or like to vary your choice depending on your mood, there are a multitude of alluring fragrances to explore. Looking for something new for yourself or picking a gift for your significant other? Here are some tips for narrowing it down to “the one”.
Choosing a fragrance: where to start
Start by considering the options of Eau de Cologne (EDC), Eau de Toilette (EDT) and Eau de Parfum (EDP).
Eau de Cologne typically lasts only up to 2-3 hours and has the lowest concentration of fragrance, which is why it is typically sold in larger bottles. Eau de Toilette, a common formulation for both men's and women's fragrances, is slightly more concentrated and lasts around 2-3 hours, while Eau de Parfum is the strongest of the three and can last up to 10 hours.
Finding your perfect notes
Once you’ve decided which type ticks the boxes, the next thing is to choose the perfect scent. Consider what fragrance notes give you pleasure, or you respond to most. From fruity and fresh, to floral and sweet, and dark and woody, there’s a scent that will speak to all of us. Combine scent and beauty
Finally, the perfect bottle of fragrance appeals to more than just your sense of smell. Some are striking in their simplicity, others spark a sense of playfulness, and still others beckon you with the allure of mystery. Regardless of whether you’re shopping for something feminine or masculine, elegant, quirky, or unique, there’s a choice that will impress.
Choosing the right fragrance as a gift
If you’re shopping for someone special, whether you associate them with a certain scent. If nothing comes to mind, does their aesthetic give you clues to what they will love? Can’t choose just one? Consider a gift set that offers multiple fragrances.
