Fragrance combination's make for unique perfumes so those who can afford it can have their perfumer concoct something for them and use it as their signature scent. But in essence, fragrance is as unique as the person wearing it. It can change its smell when combined with the body chemistry so a certain perfume can smell differently for each person.
The climate is also a factor that affects how a perfume smells hence the reason big fragrance houses to release different fragrances for each season because heat and cold are important factors on how a perfume would unravel.
There are different types of scents so knowing the basic types can help greatly in determining which one would suit you best.
We are basically aware of six types, namely:
• Floral, which are extracted from flowers like rose, jasmine, carnation, lavender and Ylang-Ylang.
• Chypre which are a mossy-woody mix like patchouli, citrus, bergamot and oak moss. This scent is usually earthy and sweet.
• Green which are based on grassy and sharp blends from herbs, pine and juniper. This is a popular choice for on-the-go individuals especially those who love nature.
• Citrus scents are extracted from citrus fruits like mandarin, lemon, tangerine and lime. This fragrance is uplifting and refreshing so if you’re feeling down, choosing this scent can easily perk up your mood.
• Oriental is the type of scent that is rich and musky so it’s recommended for the colder months. This is a combination of amber, resins, balsams and spices.
• Fougere is a combination of herbs and ferns which suggest sophistication and urban lifestyle.
Fragrance combinations are as interesting as the personalities who choose them. Anybody can combine scents to get their signature scent. It is recommended that you have at least two signature scents, one for winter and one for summer. If you can afford to change every season, you should go for it.
