Your signature fragrance can give people such an insight into your personality, sometimes much more so than your personal style and that perfectly polished manicure. A scent can tell a story, it can be nostalgic, a reminder of fond memories, it can evoke feelings of excitement, or even sadness. Much like the shoes we wear or how we style our hair, our choice of scents can be a window into our personality. But what does your choice of perfume say about you?

Floral

If you’re a fan of floral scents you’re probably an old romantic at heart, confident and not afraid to fully embrace your femininity. Women who wear floral perfumes can also be flirtatious, a botanical scent like ‘Daisy’ by Marc Jacobs shows you are affectionate, caring yet frolicsome and you will definitely be remembered.

Fruity

You were probably that girl in school that everybody wanted to be friends with right? Fun, spirited and always up for a giggle. Women drawn to fruitier scents live life to the fullest and bring joy to everyone that is lucky enough to meet them. They are often very colourful, lively characters that can also be fearless and self-assured. Signature scents such as Ralph Lauren’s ‘Ralph’ and DKNY’s ‘Be Delicious’ show signs that a woman is youthful, bright and forever cheerful.

Oceanic

If you like the fresh, clean, crisp notes of a perfume inspired by water or the ocean, then you are likely to be one laid back lady! Whether you enjoy a more sophisticated fragrance such as Creed’s ‘Silver Mountain Water’ or the effortless smell of ‘Eternity Aqua’ by Calvin Klein, oceanic perfumes show a woman to be relaxed and easygoing with underlying inner strength. Think of a woman who is always in control and remains calm under pressure. She is more than likely a huge fan of these types of scents.

Citrusy

Those of you who prefer citrusy notes such as lemongrass, orange or lime certainly have a ‘zest’ for life. Wearer’s of refreshing fragrances such as ‘CK one’ are often forward thinking and very expressive individuals. Modern women who are not afraid to think outside the box and take charge of any situation.

Oriental

Lovers of sensual oriental scents are usually also fans of the finer things in life. Exotic and mysterious, an oriental scent can often give the impression of an experimental and unique individual that enjoys experiencing new things. ‘Classique’ by Jean Paul Gaultier is a perfect example, it is a seductive and alluring scent!

Woody

Bold and unique women who are into woody or earthy scents such as ‘Elle’ by Yves Saint Laurent will generally be complex and highly intelligent much like the perfumes they choose to wear. They are often in touch with their sensuality and enjoy wearing fragrances that surprise and change over time. Fans of woody notes know what they like and are assertive without being too dominant.

Which fragrance family do you fit into? Maybe you enjoy mixing things up to keep people guessing. When looking for a new signature scent, it’s important to know which fragrance family to consider in to order to find the perfect scent to suit your personality. Most reputable online retailers will often do the hard work for you allowing you to search for perfumes based on the fragrance family they belong to. Fragrance Gallery is a good option for those of you wanting to search specifically for certain fragrance notes as it’s super easy to narrow down your search based on your preferences.
