There’s such a thing as a signature scent for good reason. The fragrance you wear can say a lot about you and is often something that people remember long after you’ve gone, which means choosing a good one can help make the right impression.
When you’re searching for a signature scent,
there are lots of things to consider. The most important of these is that your
new fragrance is one you love and will be happy to wear again and again. Some
other things you might like to think about include ‘what does this perfume say
about me?’ and ‘when will I wear this fragrance?’. For a scent to be sincerely
signature, you’ll want to choose one that communicates your best traits and is
comfortable to wear for every occasion.
What does it mean to have a signature scent?
Lots of things you do can contribute to your
unique style. This starts with the clothes you wear, how you style your hair
and the way you apply makeup. While nothing communicates your personality like
your attitude, actions, and beliefs, these outside aspects are essential when
it comes to making the right first impression.
Your perfume is another crucial part of your
first and lasting impression. From floral scents that comfort and soothe to
striking herbal compositions that help you stand out from the crowd, there are
lots of options when it comes to choosing a fragrance that’s right for you.
This will be known as your ‘signature scent’.
Our sense of smell is the most closely linked
with memory. Choosing a signature scent and sticking to it is a great way to
leave reminders of yourself wherever you go. A signature scent is a lovely way
to reflect your personality and can make you feel great.
What your scent might say about you
With so many perfumes out there, choosing just
one signature scent can feel overwhelming. Not to worry, because there are lots
of ways to narrow down the search and find the perfect option to suit your
All perfumes fall into what we call ‘scent
families’. For a fragrance to fit into a scent family, it must share the same
notes with others of its kind. These include floral, oriental, woody, and fresh.
Here’s what these types of perfume might say about you:
What do floral perfumes say about you?
Floral perfumes are popular, and it’s easy to
see why. These often sweet and always comforting scents include:
Floral scents are often romantic and comforting,
so if you have this type of gentle personality, you might find your signature
scent here. Because they connote all things pretty and feminine, floral
perfumes are some of our favourites. Explore the enormous range available and
choose one that makes you feel great.
What do oriental perfumes say about you?
Oriental fragrances are often sexy and
confidence-boosting. These can be more womanly than floral and fresh options
and work exceptionally well for evening wear. Oriental scents include:
If you’re looking to exude confidence everywhere
you go, choose a beautiful oriental perfume for your signature scent. There are
lots of options to choose from, from soft to striking, so you’re sure to find
one you love!
What do woody perfumes say about you?
Woody perfumes are on-trend time after time.
These less-common options make striking signatures and are perfect if you’re
all about laid-back vibes and aesthetics. Woody fragrances include:
When you’re choosing your signature scent, be sure to smell around and select an option you really love. You’ll be wearing it again and again, so take your time and enjoy the search. We know it’ll be worth it.
When it comes to beauty products and the world of pampering, it’s all about scents. Do you have any favourite fragranced products? Why is it you like them so much? The likelihood is, is that it either reminds you of something or you’re just obsessed with that kind of smell. Worldwide, summertime = cocktail season. It’s that time of year where we opt for cheeky alcoholic beverages that are fruity and topped with ice to keep us feeling cool and refreshed day to evening. So, what better way to experience this scentsational fruity feeling every day than to indulge in cocktails themselves. Today, we’ve rounded up some of the best beauty products for all cocktail-lovers whether you’re partial to a G&T or a creamy colada.

If you’re a lover of Mai Tai’s, you need to try the CB&CO Mai Tai Body Wash. What better place to bathe in a tiki-style cocktail than in the shower?

Within this range, they also offer full body wash sets in cosmopolitan and mojito scents too!
If we take a step into the makeup department, another product that smells just as incredible is the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation made with an original vitamin-rich fruity therapy formula resulting in an even complexion with an anti-fatigue result – even better!

There have been so many trends so far this summer, but the key to acing them is all in the detail. Experimenting with new beauty products is always daunting especially if you’re trying something new so we’re here today to give you all the tips, tricks and products you need to get involved with the summer trends you’ve been seeing all over Instagram and only wishing you could pull off, whereas this type, you can and you will!
Glitter boobs are a thing and I can guarantee you’ll have spotted this trend at different festivals so far this summer. It’s fairly risky – but not if you do it the right way. Here’s how. Start with chunkier gems as these are the guys you’ll be building the rest of the look around. Using real glue over your skin isn’t the best idea for this area so use a brush and smoother your chest in hair gel, it may sound crazy, but it works! Next up is the fun part where you grab glitter tub of choice and paint it on all the places covered with gel. Finally, to lock it all in place, grab a can of hairspray and go wild. FD Recommends:Prima Makeup Unicorn Poop Glitter Paste
To complete the full summer-mermaid vibe, another super cool trend to try out is wet-look hair. One of the easiest ways to do this is to prepare your hair the night before so that you don’t have to spend hours slaving away under a pair of curling tongs. All you need to do is wet your hair before bed with some water or any nourishing water-based hair spray and plait your hair. For loose waves, do two hair plaits or for tighter more textured waves split your hair into four or even six sections depending on how thick your hair is. In the morning when your hair has dried, if any sections need topping up, just plait that section again and apply a bit of heat to it whether that’s clamping the plait with straighteners or using your blow dryer with a spritz of heat-protectant beforehand of course. To top the look off add in a texturizing spray and any dry oils of your choice from root to tip. FD Recommends:Fudge Bodifying Salt Enhanced Texture Spray
Have you been scrolling through Instagram and spotted anyone with a few more freckles than usual recently? That will be because of the faux freckle trend. It’s great to do whether you already have freckles or not because the likelihood is, is that when you opt for more coverage with a heavy-duty concealer or foundation for its sweat-proof powers, as well as evening out your skin tone, these products, of course, cover it up too. To bring back your freckles and beauty marks, all you need is a brown liner whether it’s for your lips or eyes. Then delicately pencil on, one dab at a time, until you get the desired effect. To add clusters of freckles around your nose, adding a touch of bronzer and blush beforehand will help to blend them in. FD Recommends: High Definition Beauty Kajal – Rich Brown
Finally, we have a trend in products and it’s all about a little bit of firming action. Whatever your size and shape, we all struggle with stretch marks and cellulite no matter how curvy those areas may be. So great products to invest in to give you that extra boost of confidence if you need it are products with firming superpowers. Whether you’ve caught the tan of your dreams from your holiday already or you’ve been working all summer and haven’t been abroad, fake tan is here to save the day. It can give you the perfect top-up or an ideal glow when you need it and what’s better is that there are now a fair few formulas with firming creams in them!
