TIPS TO FIND YOUR SIGNATURE SCENT
Knowledge about Fragrance Family
"Understanding the families is just like understanding genres in music," says David Moltz, co-founder of S. & Durga.
To start of with the basics, there are four scent families: Woody, Floral, Oriental, and Fresh. A few aromas fiddle into more than one scent family, however realizing what notes you incline toward can rapidly limit your quest for your signature fragrance.
Know the Notes
Notes in perfumery are descriptors of scents that can be detected upon the utilization of a scent. Notes are classified into three classes: top/head notes, center/heart/middle notes, and base notes; which signify gatherings of aromas which can be sensed regarding the time after the use of a scent.
How would you like your signature scent to make you feel?
Perfumes hold great value despite being invisible. When a person wears a certain fragrance, there’s no tag or brand’s name visible but the scent itself speaks volumes which builds your personality. Perfumes are the invisible, outer most layer which defines the personality and taste of its wearer. They hold the power to boost your confidence and spark positive energy, so the right fragrance is directly proportional to your energy levels and mood.
