Choosing the right scent for you is what distinguishes you from everyone else – it makes you unique. There are a multitude of fragrances to choose and to identify with – ones that can change our moods or even evoke fond memories. In this regard, it is safe to say that choosing the right fragrance is a choice we should not take lightly, as our perfume choice for day, night and even for our home emanates who each of us are…
Fragrance for All Occasions
With the summer season now well underway we are spoiled for choice – The variety of fragrances and aromas lingering in the air make us feel rejuvenated and alive, whether it’s floral or oriental (even the mix of the two!), Chypre or Citrus scents. Citrus and Florals disintegrate more quickly than stronger scents, so invest in the Eu de Parfum to avoid spritzing away half your bottle on your lunch break! You could also combine citrus and floral scents with the more impacting musk, patchouli and sandalwood notes for longer-lasting wear. For the evening, try rich, exotic base blends of saffron, sensual vanilla and warming liquid amber.
The latest releases in scents for men include an assortment of spice smells such as bourbon pepper and nutmeg to provide for a feeling of rugged, pure masculinity. Combine this with other woody tones to generate a musky, but not smoky scent. The presence of intensive substances like vanilla, exotic resins, musk and wood means a fragrance won’t wear off easily.
On the other end of the spectrum, men’s fragrances can also include fruit and citrus scents, with tones which can radiate one’s originality. Set to take men’s fragrance by storm are ones which contain bergamot and mandarin orange!
For the Home
When we are in our homes we search for a feeling of comfort and serenity. We embrace the feeling of familiar and create our own personal and private cocoon. It is with the aid of fragrances that we may be able to recreate a past feeling, perhaps a scent which reminds us of our childhoods.
Candles and Reed Diffusers
Not just for show! Alongside making a great accessory for the living and bedrooms areas of the home, candle creators work to create specific ambiances – be it an exotic vibe (Mandarin Citrus and Basil notes), rest and relaxation (lemon and lavender) or something a bit manlier (musk is a must).
Reed Diffusers are a fantastic way to have a slow but steady release of fragrance. Look for a natural, non-VOC and biodegradable oil serum which carriers the perfume into the air – healthy for the family and the environment. For a calming aura, the aromatic olfactory group is the favourite choice – why not try lavender and eucalyptus? For a florist’s paradise, a mix of orange blossom and honeysuckle is the perfect combination. Spicy Vanilla, Coconut and Almond notes make for a beach getaway vibe.
