How to Choose Your Signature Scent
Find Your Scent Family
Picking your perfect scent can be overwhelming. With so many options to choose from, you may not know where to start. The easiest place to start is with your favorite foods. Scent and taste are closely aligned and can be just the spark you need to search for your signature fragrance in a scent family. For example, if you like the smell of baked goods, you might like aroma infused with vanilla. Certain smells also invoke certain feelings or can remind you of specific seasons. Knowing your favorite season can also lead you to pick a scent family. Either way, this is the first step in finding your scent.
Pick Your Type
When you're shopping for a new fragrance you may notice a bunch of French words at the bottom of your bottle: eau de toilette, eau de parfum, parfum, eau fraiche—the list goes on. You might have wondered what these mean. Well, colognes and perfumes consist of perfume essence (essential oils, extracts, etc.), alcohol and water. The difference between the types of fragrance depends on the concentration of perfume used in the scent. These names of each perfume type can give you clues to the concentration of perfume in the fragrance. Here's a quick way to distinguish the different kinds of perfume:
Fragrance essence- 20–30%
Lasts eight or more hours
Eau de Parfum (EDP)
Fragrance essence- 15–20%
Lasts five to eight hours
Eau de Toilette (EDT)
Fragrance essence- 5–15%
Lasts about three hours
Eau de Cologne (EDC)
Fragrance essence- 2–4%
Lasts about two hours
Fragrance essence- 1–3%
Lasts about an hour
Change it Up
Finding your signature scent is like building a wardrobe. You should have a scent that expresses your unique style for the season or occasion. This gives you a canvas of fragrances to choose from. While they can all come from the same scent family or from different ones to add more dimension, you should have at least three that help express who you are.
Patience is Key
It's going to take some time to find your signature fragrance(s). Take the time to get to know the scent and how it wears on your body and mixes with your natural scent. We suggest starting with at least three scents you rotate during a designated period. This allows you to narrow down your favorite and switch out your least favorite with a new scent until you can crown one king.
