Think about your mood and style

Fragrances are a reflection of your personality, so start by considering your mood and personal style. If you're looking for one that brings about the feeling of being energized and optimistic, look for a scent that's fresh and uplifting, such as a citrus or floral fragrance. If you're looking for something more sophisticated and elegant, a woody or musky scent might be the right choice.

À La Rose by Maison Francis Kurkdjian is one that you will love! This fragrance is fruity and floral with notes of roses, bergamot, Californian orange, violet, magnolia, blossom, cedarwood, musk. It is said to be an ode to femininity. Very soft.

Consider the occasion

Different occasions call for different fragrances. If you're looking for an everyday scent, choose something light and subtle that won't overpower your surroundings. For special occasions, choose a scent that's more dramatic and bold. For spring weddings and other events, a floral fragrance with notes of jasmine, rose, or peony would be perfect. An option will be Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf. This fragrance boasts of exploding with an intoxicating whirl of cattleya, jasmine, and rose. The warm scent of patchouli and vanilla grounds the fresh fragrance, adding a sensual twist on the scent reminiscent of a room filled with rose petals.

Test before you buy

Fragrances can smell different on different people, so it's important to test before you buy. Visit a department store or perfume shop and ask for a sample of the fragrance you're interested in. Apply it to your skin and wear it for a few hours to see how it smells on you. Note how the scent changes over time and whether it fades quickly or lasts for hours.
