Ever since I was a little girl, I had always wanted to have my own signature scent. I remember listening to my mother tell me that a scent should be truly yours, if you walk into a room (and people get close enough to take a whiff) you should make a statement all your own. Both she and I do NOT believe in stinking out a room with over-applied scent, but if a person is in your small personal bubble they should delight in your subtle scent and remember you when you go. This applies to both men and women, growing up, my father used the splash cologne on his face and anything he touched had the trail of his scent, hours later when grabbing my lunch box at school, the scent of his Tuscany cologne still lingered and I would feel comforted by the familiarity and security I associated with his scent. To this day, I adore all 3 of his scents that he used to wear.
When getting married, many people recommend wearing a unique scent that, when worn in the future, will remind you of the day.
It is more difficult than you think to find your scent. For example, my skin seems to change the scent of the perfumes so much that once on my skin most turn sickly sweet. Trial and error is the best way to find your one true scent personality, however I recently came across Pinrose a site that helps you find your scent through a synesthesia process. They have a multi-sensory quiz that you can take which leverages synesthesia to help you find your perfect scent.
You can choose to purchase Petal Packs which are single dose magical fragrance sachets that stay fresh as the day they were created. Their scents sound lovely, synesthesia pun intended, examples include
- Renegade Starlit – Pretty in pink and everything else. Make an entrance with this mix of gardenia, jasmine, and freesia
- Surf Siren – For breaking hearts and sinking ships. Dive into this breezy blend of lavender and neroli.
- Rooftop Socialite – No better place to survey the scene than from the very top. Brighten the crowd with this fresh mix of Italian bergamot, lime, and mandarin.
I know that there are lots of people out there that take as much joy as I do when finding a scent that makes you stand a little taller and augment who you are really are so I couldn’t help myself in sharing this fun site. The only question left is am I a Ballroom Philosopher or a Moonlight Gypsy?
Which one are you?
