What Your Perfume Says About You.
Choosing a fragrance is never easy, but it sure is fascinating. A scent can tell a story, be a form of self-expression and often brings a flood of memories that pique your sense of nostalgia.Your signature fragrance gives others insight into your personality, but what does your choice of perfume say about you?
Who she is: She’s something of a night owl, naturally sexy and unafraid to let her sensuality show. She draws you in with her artful mind and quick, sharp tongue. She prefers patchouli notes for their evocative effect.
What she wears: She’s likely to have an heirloom or two ─ she’s the sentimental type, but she’ll also slip on a pair of the highest heels for a grand entrance.
What she hears: She’s an old soul and goes for classics, singing along to all the lyrics while cruising down the coast:
Tracey Chapman – Fast Cars
Elton John – Tiny Dancer
Alanis Morrisette – Oughta Know
Lenny Kravitz – Fly Away
Her beauty secret: She loves a good face mask and some much-needed me-time.
Who she is: She always smells refreshingly bright and vibrant, and just like her scent, you cannot get enough of her. Free-spirited, casual and cool, she has a sense of adventure and will go with the flow.
What she wears: The aqua scent-loving woman is well put together and has a penchant for dressing in crisp blouses worn with jeans, flowing maxi dresses and has a love for boots. Whatever she wears, she wears effortlessly.
What she hears: She likes a little meaning, a story behind her music. She doesn’t always follow the latest tunes just because they’re on top of the charts (although she may appreciate them).
Khalid – Location
Frank Ocean – Biking
John Mayer – Moving On and Getting Over
Her beauty secret: She’s obsessed with overall body care. This type of woman is a believer in having moisturised, supple skin.
Who she is: Bubbly, playful and free-spirited, she’s the hero you call when your Netflix account is down or you’re feeling insecure ─ you can count on her to help you out, lighten the mood and inject a little fun into your day.
What she wears: She looks great in wrap skirts, maxi dresses and easy-to-wear tops. She always looks like she’s floating on a cloud. She loves colour and experimenting with bold prints and patterns.
What she hears: She doesn’t take herself too seriously, likes a pink, fruity drink, the ones with cute little umbrellas in them. Naturally, her love for fruity goodness extends to her music playlist with songs like:
Camilla Cabello – Havana
Calvin Harris ft Frank Ocean & Migos – Slide
J Balvin, Willy Willam & Beyonce – Mi Gente
Dua Lipa – New Rules
Her beauty secret: She’s a woman who doesn’t like to be bored so she changes her hair nearly as often as she changes her underwear.
Who she is: This woman, like her preferred scent, is timeless. She’s sophisticated, polished and refined, as well as seductive, desirable and terribly intriguing. She’s probably every man’s, and woman’s, Women Crush Wednesday.
What she wears: She keeps her palette neutral, prefers classic tailoring, shirts and blouses worn with jeans, trousers or midi skirts. And, of course, loves a good pair of heels.
What she hears: Her musical leanings are a mixed bag. She probably owns a trendy but classic record player because the authenticity of the music is better heard on vinyl. But she’s also got Drake’s Passionfruit on her playlist.
Sam Smith – Lay Me Down
Kanye West – Love Lockdown
Red Hot Chilli Peppers – Dani California
The Fugees – Gone Til November
Her beauty secret: “Heels and red lipstick will put the fear of God into people.”
