Christian Dior once said, "A woman's perfume tells more about her than her handwriting." How right he was! It's amazing how much the scent we wear reveals about our personality, making it all the more important to pick the right one.
A new season often necessitates a new scent. The scent of fall is definitely in the air, and your signature scent should follow suit. Before heading to the department store to pick the perfume that works best for you, it's helpful to have a plan in mind. Otherwise, you may sniff dozens of perfumes and wonder why they all smell the same after a while. Consider this your complete guide to the season's most sumptuous fragrances!
Different Kinds of Fragrances
Woody: An ideal choice for cooler months and evenings, earthy tones are the feature of woody fragrances. These perfumes usually feature scents such as sandalwood, patchouli and cedar to give a rich and natural fragrance. Not only are they easy to wear, woody scents are also quite versatile.
Greens: While woody perfumes capture the essence of forests and woodland, green perfumes have tones more reminiscent of cut grass and crisp spring growth. Lighter and suitable for casual wear as well as evening and business wear, these can be worn for all occasions.
Oriental: These perfumes are the strongest of all. With sensual overtones and rich undertones, this scent makes for quite heavy blends, but they are complemented by the fine scents of sweet vanilla, musk, sumptuous flowers and oriental resins.
Floral: These have strong overtones of flowery fragrances like rose, jasmine and lavender, and work perfectly for the winter season. These scents actually have a more feminine appeal and are suitable for day wear.
Fruity: Fruity fragrances are fresh. They are quite youthful in their scent and apt for cool weather. In the winters, they invoke a sense of warm desserts. They are an excellent choice for women who like classic fragrances but also want to add a little flair.
