I absolutely love when people smell good, don't you? I love the way a scent can take you back to a memory or make you think of a certain place, or better yet, a certain someone! When I think about what I apply on a daily basis to smell good, I realized how strange it is that I don't really apply fragrance for the pleasure of my own nose, but for the benefit of those around me. When I get a "wow, you smell nice" from someone I hugged or sat near, then I feel golden! I love when someone's chemistry mixes well with scent and becomes an effervescent extension of that person. It's such a personal thing and when a perfect match is made, it is smell nirvana for everyone around them! So let's talk about what a scent actually says about you. Do you think the following correlations have any credence? Does your fragrance match your personality or reflect some character traits that you may have?

Finding Your Scent Personality

People who are drawn to scents that contain salty notes that are reminiscent of the beach are usually dreamers who are smart, cool, free-spirited, fit and love the water! If you are attracted to Oriental fragrances that contain spicy or musky notes, then you are naturally sexy, a self-proclaimed night owl and not afraid of your sensuality. Floral scents like gardenia, jasmine, and lily of the valley attract nature lovers, people who are more feminine and friendly and love to smile. If you are drawn to floral scents, then you probably also enjoy the aroma and health benefits of essential oils. Vanilla, honey, almond or chocolate scents are all apart of the gourmand family, and leave you smelling like you are good enough to eat! People who are drawn to these scents have a good sense of humor. If you like crisp scents that are laden with basil, cucumber or green tea, then you fall into the green family. You are a bit dramatic, but also classy and chic. Last but not least, fruity perfumes. If you like the scent of apples, cherries or limes, then you are energetic, bold and love vibrant colors! Now that we have touched upon these scent characteristics, which one do you relate to? I am a bit all over the map because I tend to layer my perfumes to customize my scent story, so I guess you can say that I have multiple personalities at play!
