We all have our favourite fragrances and we tend to stick to ones we know and love, but is there more to the scents we choose? Read on to find out what your choice of fragrance says about you…

Fresh & Fruity

 If you adore sweet smelling notes of sumptuous fruit and fresh hints of crisp sandalwood then you’re probably a fan of all things fresh and fruity fragrances! 

It’s likely that you have a fun and playful character whilst also having a perfectionist side to you too. The first thing that springs to mind when you think of fruit is bold, bright colours, much like your personality, you’re probably the life and soul of every party and know your way around a dancefloor like a pro. You can often be seen mingling between groups, getting to know new people and trying new things.

On to the fresh side – Sandalwood is a scent that’s a little unique, much like those who wear it. Sandalwood reflects on someone who strives to work hard and be ambitious in life. If you’re always looking for a new adventure, or you’re a high-achiever in life then a Fresh & Fruity scent is for you.

Mouth-watering fresh apple blends with crisp cucumber and sparkling grapefruit to charge the senses. Sweet magnolia and a core of violet and rose dance into a smooth finish of creamy sandalwood and white amber-creating a fragrance that celebrates everything it means to Be Delicious. 

Floral

Floral fragrances are timeless and certainly a popular choice for many. Seemingly, it’s not only the scent that’s popular!

Those of you who enjoy wearing floral-scented perfumes are said to have the biggest hearts. They value friendship, make great friends and will always stand as a team player in life. We’re probably right in saying that if you wear floral scents as your choice of fragrance, then you’re always the one to put in the extra effort, you’ll surprise your loved ones when they’re feeling down, organise catch up brunches and you’ll never fail to pick up the phone and check in with your nearest and dearest when they’re feeling down.

Rich, woody smelling perfumes are perfect for the winter months and are often worn by women who love opulence and a little bit of self-indulgence. 

If you find yourself gravitating towards rich, chocolate-smelling perfumes then you’re a confident, sexy and strong woman who doesn’t hold back anything. You can often be seen as the leader of the pack who uses power to guide your way through life.

We recommend: Giorgio Armani My Way Eau de Parfum Intense Spray

An amplified florality on an addictive woody trail, made of consciously sourced ingredients. The scent opens with bright notes of orange blossom from Egypt. A new intense heart of tuberose from India unveils a creamy and velvety facet of the floral signature. At the base of the fragrance, the sandalwood from New Caledonia takes an addictive creamy turn, as it meets a voluptuous Vanilla from Madagascar.
