What does your fragrance say about you?!

If clothing makes the man, Fragrance makes the woman!

With all the fragrances for bath and body and candles on the market, how do you find your Signature Scent?  What do the different fragrance families say about your personality?

Here is a breakdown of the major fragrance families:

Fresh: Citrus, Green leaves, Marine notes
Floral: Jasmine, Rose, White flowers
Oriental: Spices, Vanilla, Patchouli
Woody: Citrus, Warm woods, Moss

Fresh: Citrus, Green leaves, Marine notes
Aromatic: Citrus, Lavendar, Geranium
Woody: Vetiver, Agarwood, Cedar

Floral fragrances (the most popular) are feminine and romantic, while Oriental fragrances are rich,warm, spicy and sophisticated.  The Oriental family also includes Gourmand- a relatively new category, with the concept of basing fragrances on edible notes. A gourmand scent may contain notes such as spices, honey, vanilla, chocolate, amber and cinnamon. Gourmand scents are usually “comfy” and delicious and wear nicely in the cooler seasons.

Woody includes nutty and spicy with resinous notes of amber, sandalwood, cedar wood, and a touch of patchouli.
Some wood blends have a hint of cinnamon, a sprinkle of earth, or a puff of tobacco.

Stay turned for perfume specials in each of these families!

Which suits your tastes and personality and why?

Love, Laughter & Candlelight!
