Smell is the sense closest linked to memory. We've all experienced smelling mom's laundry detergent, a new car scent that takes you back to your 16th year, and the salty-air of the beach that cues vacation memories instantly.
It's the same with our scents. We relate each of the fragrances on our dresser top to memories - the work day scent, the night out with girlfriends scent, and the scent that makes us feel like we could rock a stage Beyonce-style with ease. Yes, you need everyone of those fragrances in your scent entourage.
But, finding the signature one is not easy. You want it to do these things really well.
1// Fit your personality: something people would expect you to wear, the signature scent naturally fits with your vibe. If you are a classic girl, or like the boho feel - find one that props that up and you'll feel like you!
2// Mix well with your own scent: we should take into account our own scents. Be sure the two have chemistry and the fragrance is not being overpowered or vice versa.
3// Be Life-friendly: choose something with flexibility. You can go from work to the mall, or out for drinks with friends all with the same scent. Don't choose an overboard niche fragrance or it may not fit in every situation. Basically, there are only so many places that can handle J.Lo Glow or Britney's Curious. You know what I mean.
Grab your purse and make an after-work trip to the cosmetic counters, ladies!
