How to Find Your Signature Scent

Now is the perfect time to upgrade your fragrance game

It’s getting cold outside, so why not warm things up with a new fragrance? Learn how to find your perfect fall/winter scent, plus some great perfumes for every budget.

Walking into a department store can be intimidating since there are hundreds of options to choose from. When thinking about finding your signature scent, don’t get caught up in packaging and name brands. Instead, think about that first experience of trying on a fragrance and how it makes you feel.

How a fragrance smells in the bottle isn’t how it’s going to smell on you. So spray it on and give it time to work. Sometimes winter scents can be heavy and may need 10 minutes or so to settle down. Also, always ask for a sample to take home to try for a week. That way you don’t commit and realize that you hate it.

This season, pack away the citrus, fruity and sweet undertones. You can still rock florals, just make sure they are in season. And with the cooler weather, now’s the time to go for a heartier, bolder scent.

Stand out this season with scents featuring spicy and woodsy undertones. Also, opt for ingredients and fragrances that are associated with fall and winter, such as deep chocolate, winter roses, eggnog and even pumpkin spice.
