Perfumes That Match Your Personality

Perfumes That Match Your Personality

 

Perfume means more than just a pleasant smell. Wearing perfume is a way of expressing your personality, mood, and style. Perfume can make you feel better about yourself. The right one can boost your confidence, attract attention from someone else and create an impression.

But choosing the perfect perfume for yourself or buying perfume as a gift for someone is not easy. When it comes to buying perfume or cologne, we are spoiled for choice.

Today, there are more fragrances and perfumes than ever before. You can choose between sweet, floral and fruity fragrances, all the way to deep. spicy and woody perfumes. Buying perfume is often more involved and complex than it may seem.

 

How To Pick The Right Perfume For You

There are numerous ways of narrowing down your choices. When I sold perfumes in a leading department store in London, I spent time talking to my customers.

In all honesty, they probably wondered what was going on. I could almost see what they were thinking. “Just let me smell the perfumes, you silly blond woman” was probably the thought that often went through their minds.

What was I doing? I was trying to match a perfume to their personality and dress style. From experience, I know that perfume evokes “different vibes.” Some are flirty and others are serious and sophisticated. And then you get some that are just fun and frivolous!

When you match a perfume to someone’s personality and style, you create a more harmonious effect. Your fragrance should reflect how you want to be perceived and your character.

 

Perfumes For Every Occasion

Yes, our choice of perfume should reflect who we are as a person. At the same time, you have to realise there are occasions when you want to wear a different perfume. The same fun, flirty perfume you wear when going out with the girls is not the best choice for date night or a family dinner.

It is best to have a choice of fragrances. I believe that less is more. It is not a hard and fast rule, but as perfumes don’t last forever, buying a smaller size is often better. That way, you have a choice of perfume on your dressing table.

Also, don’t forget that scents change with the seasons. The perfume you wear in the summer is not necessarily the right one for autumn. This often has to do with perception. But, at the same time, the smells that surround us change with the seasons. I like to wear different perfumes in autumn from the ones I wore during the summer.

Over the years, I have come up with my own favourites when it comes to serious and flirty perfumes. As new fragrances are launched, I keep adding to my top buying tips for flirty perfumes and serious perfumes.

On this page, I am sharing my favourite flirty perfumes and serious perfumes with you. Hopefully, it helps you to find the best fragrance for you.

 

Fun and Flirty Perfumes

If you are someone with a fun and flirty personality, you are likely spontaneous, lively, and happy. People who fall in the fun and flirty perfume category love to socialise and enjoy life.

I also find many in this category are sporty and have a slightly casual attitude to life. Rather than staying indoors, they like to be out and about.

Your personality reflects your dress sense. The way someone dressed was one of the first things I used to look at when I sold perfume. Most people in this category, both men and women, dress casually and often wear bright, fresh colours. You probably stay in touch with your inner child and not afraid of expressing your playful side.

What perfumes are best for this category of people? The perfumes and fragrances that suit playful and flirty individuals are often close to nature. So, if this is you, you should buy perfumes packed with citrus scents, fresh berries, and green attributes such as leaves and grass. Add a touch of sweetness to emphasise the flirty side of your personality.
