Fragrance for your Personal Style
Fragrance uplifts the spirit, sets the mood, and enhances personal style. When you dress to impress, fragrance is the final wardrobe accessory. It lingers in the memory and leaves a lasting impression. Just as you have a signature style, having a signature scent is also a fashion must. Your personal style is more than just how you dress; it sets the tone for your lifestyle.
But choosing the perfect fragrance isn't an easy task. With so many fragrances in the world, it's hard to know where to begin...until now. So, what’s your style? Are you casual, sexy, trendy, or sophisticated?
Casual: Try Fresh Scents
If your signature style is casual, your wardrobe consists of jeans, t-shirts, active wear, and other comfortable clothing. A fresh scent completes this look. Aquatic, citrus or fruity, and fresh floral scents are the most popular of the fresh fragrance types. Aquatic fragrances are reminiscent of ocean breezes and mountain streams, blending sheer notes of water lily, water hyacinth, and aromatic lichen. Citrusy, fruity fragrances feature juicy fruits, creating sunny, bright fragrances with notes like apple, fig, pomegranate, mango, and berries. Finally, fresh floral scents are sheer and airy, with easy-to-wear notes of freesia, lily of the valley, and mimosa. Fresh scents are sunny and sheer.

Sexy: Try Floral Scents
For sexy styles, turn to slinky dresses, glittering jewels, and stiletto shoes. Rich floral fragrances are the perfect touch to a smoldering, ultra-feminine wardrobe. These perfumes bloom with vibrant, beautiful flowers. Classic florals range from subtle to glamorous with notes of rose, jasmine, tuberose, gardenia, and lily. Powdery floral fragrances are subtle and delicate with soft, powdery notes that accent floral bouquets. These floral scents are feminine and romantic.

Trendy: Try Warm and Spicy Scents
If your style is trendy, you’re always up on the latest fashions and the newest hot spots. For the trendy girl, warm and spicy fragrances fit you like a pair of Manolos. Warm and spicy fragrances often employ spices from the Orient, and are classified into these three categories: Floral Oriental, Vanilla Amber Oriental, and Spicy Woody Oriental. Floral Oriental fragrances combine fresh-cut flowers with warm woods, and often include sandalwood, vanilla, and spices. Vanilla Amber Orientals mixes vanilla and amber notes in rich, culinary-inspired scents. Spicy Woody Oriental fragrances combine the bold spices of cinnamon and nutmeg with warm woods like patchouli and cedar. These scents are the fashionista’s dream.

Sophisticated: Try Woody and Earthy Scents
A sophisticated wardrobe is one without flashy trends or ill-fitting designs. A sophisticated dresser is one who’s always aware of her clothes style and fit, and who knows the value of the Little Black Dress. Woody and Earthy fragrances are smooth blends that reflect nature’s warmth and balance. Invigorating fresh scents of grass and leaves might be mixed with sage, coriander, peach, or plum in these complex fragrances. These scents also incorporate zesty citrus or cool earthy moss, but the warm woody aromas of patchouli, cedar, or sandalwood are the hallmarks of sophisticated chypre fragrances. These scents are ideal for chic, elegant women.
