Fragrance Combinations for Mood and Personality
While there are literally hundreds of options when it comes to perfumes or scents, some people still can't find their exact match. Hence, more and more personalized scents are produced. You don’t actually need to be a Jennifer Aniston or have a chemical laboratory to make your own signature scent.
Tons of how-to articles and videos can help you with this endeavor and it may require just a few pieces for equipment. What you need to know first is which fragrances and fragrance combinations would best speak about you and deliver your message in certain scenarios. Here’s a short guide.
Sexy, sensual, anyone?
Try putting on some rose scent which is said to have aphrodisiac qualities. No wonder rose is a favorite among lovers! The same can be said for Ylang-ylang and Jasmine. Combine these with strong, alluring scents such as patchouli and you will know that you just hit the “follow me” button.
The office is hardly a place to wear perfume since strong scents can be distracting but it doesn’t mean you can’t put on fragrance if it would help you in stimulating your mental faculties. Pick a fragrance like spearmint and watch your mind get catalyzed by your senses. You can blend this with petitgrain or cinnamon for added alertness.
Light and “fresh from the shower” fragrance like lemon renders clean scent that best fit women who are going for the natural look. Choose some aromatic herbs to go with it and you can never go wrong whether it is a visit to a park or a hiking adventure.
Cool and Relaxed
If you want to emit a scent that says you can hush the hotheads, go for lavender and vanilla fragrance combinations. They would surely love to keep you in the room with the scents’ calming properties.
Evoke an endearing childlike personality with fruity scents like mandarin and lime. Blended with floral scent like carnation, this can uplift a mood or keep a lively one. It just says that you won’t let anything get you down!
These are just few examples of scents that you can combine for a particular mood or personality. In fact, you don’t have to stop at combining two fragrances. Just make sure you don’t overdo it. Have fun experimenting and remember that no two people smell the same even if they use the same scent.
Life Never Smelled So Sweet!
