When choosing a fragrance for yourself, it’s always important to keep a few factors in mind. For example, the fragrance must have an appealing aroma on you. Buying something because it smelled good on someone else doesn’t mean it will smell good on you, so test fragrances on your skin first. Next, consider whether the fragrance fits your personality. Remember, your scent goes wherever you go, so you’ll want to leave a good lasting impression.
Next time, don’t simply choose any bottle in store or online – you want your scent to reflect who you are, just like your outfit does. If you fall into one of these five personality types, consider this your go-to fragrance guide.
For the creative type
Always thinking outside of the box? Then opt for a scent that’s as imaginative as you are. Bursting with invigorating notes, YSL is the perfect match for you. The notes of geranium, lavender and incense blend so well together, making it a refreshing scent that will linger all day long.
For the confident type
If you’re the socialite of the group, you need a scent that compliments confidence. Prada Luna Rossa Black, a powerful, eye-catching fragrance for men, is the ideal fit for you. This parfum begins with bergamot and gradually fades into a woody amber. Bonus: the sharp black bottle will look so good on your grooming table.
For the ambitious type
If you’re motivated, passionate and determined, you need a cologne that can keep up with your fast-paced lifestyle. Look for fragrances with leather or woody notes. We like Emporio Armani Stronger With You Intensely. This addictive fougere scent features notes of pink pepper, vanilla and an ambery wood accord. It will ensure that you always create a strong lasting impression, day or night.
For the sporty type
Perfumers understand that men want to smell good after a post-game shower. As a result, they’ve produced a whole range of sports-inspired fragrances for men. Your cue is to look for scents with citrus, green or aquatic tones. We like Dior Homme Sport, Davidoff Cool Water or Nautica Voyage Sport. These clean, crisp scents will keep you smelling fresh on or off the court.
For the free-spirited type
For those who are always willing to go with the flow, reach for a light and airy olfactory blend. Your goal is to choose an oriental or aromantic fragrance. Dolce & Gabbana The One, Versace Eros, and Salvatore Ferragamo Uomo are among our favourites. These perfumes are guaranteed to bring out your easy-going attitude and sense of flair.
