Christmas has come and gone, February is now upon us and we are all looking forward to spring. Blossom will soon be in the trees and the smell of fresh flowers will be popping up everywhere. It’s not just the flowers that we be smelling sweet though. So many of us have recently stocked up on our fragrance supply at Christmas and there is no doubt more on the way with Valentines day. But…. what does your new perfume say about you?
Your sense of smell has been scientifically proven to have no filter and links directly to our emotions and memories. Scents are so powerful that they are actually the direct cause of animal like reactions. We are all mammals after all!
If you are a lover of those fruity citrus or berry scents then you are definitely a sun worshiper. You cling on to that summer freshness and keep it alive all year though with your favourite perfume. Here are a couple of fruity fragrances that you should try for sure!
You might think musk is such a manly word. A little known fact is that practically all fragrances contain a bit of musk. Yes, apparently musk is actually a thing! Known as the musk molecule, it’s added as a base to most perfumes. If you are a lover of the more ‘musky’ scents then it probably means you are quite a hygienic and clean person. Weird I know, but I bet you have just showered and are spraying on your musk as we speak.
Probably the most obvious but if you prefer the odours of the flower petals in your bottle, then you are most likely feminine and romantic. The most common floral notes used in perfumes are scents such as jasmine, gardenia, iris and rose. Floral based fragrances are definitely for the girly girl!
Which are my favourite florals right now?
Woody perfumes are just as they sound. Ingredients such as patchouli, sandalwood and amber are used so the finished perfumes are very earthy and masculine. Popular with more women than you would think, wearers of woody fragrances are often sensual and warm-hearted.
Spicy fragrances usually contain a bit of everything from musk to floral elements. Things like pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg are spicy fragrance staples. The woman who wears a spicy EDP is probably deep and interesting. A ponderer and very much a caring person so this woman is certainly interested in socially important issues.
So which type of fragrance girl are you?
