Did you know that the human mind actually responds predictably to certain scents? Some fragrances command attention, others will make you feel energetic, and others still will express subtle seduction. That said, you might want to be more careful about your perfume choices.
Most of us will spritz on our go-to scent and walk out the door without giving it a second thought. But being more deliberate with your choice of cologne might help smooth out your ensemble and steer the psychology of others around you.
Not quite sure what scent to wear for your occasion? Here’s a quick guide to help you eliminate the guesswork.
If you’re heading out for a corporate event, a meeting, or if you’re delivering a report to the higher-ups at work, then you’d want a scent that communicates I’m here, I’m ready, and I demand your undivided attention. This can be achieved with oceanic scents that are layered over woody undertones. Full and potent, these scents are deeper and slightly less feminine, making them more powerful than sensual.
Family gathers, backyard barbeques, and trips out of town with your kids and husband – all of these light, breezy occasions call for an uncomplicated freshness. That’s why fruity floral scents are often best for family affairs. Energetic and bubbly, these light-hearted scents can keep the mood happy and easy all throughout your trip.
For the kids’ big soccer game, spritz on a green scent that incorporates herbs and fresh fragrances. These modern, clean scents are great for outdoor sporting events, and other occasions that call for you to be one with nature. Aside from making you feel fresh and clean even under the scorching sun, green scents are also great for quick trips to the local boutiques and shopping centers for a bit of retail fun.
Whether you’re attending a wedding or if you’re going on a once-in-a-blue-moon date with your husband, it’s always best to spray on a spicy, oriental scent. With warm layers of cinnamon, ginger, and amber blended together for a sultry, seductive aura, these scents can bring out your inner siren. Picks like Oud Wood are perfect examples of scents that can make you seem irresistible to your special someone. Spray it over your wrists and your neck to give off a long-lasting sexy energy that’s sure to keep your date hooked.
Heading out to drop the kids off at school? Meeting up with your girl friends for brunch? Picking the husband up at work? Whatever the case, a citrus scent can be an ideal choice. Known as the ideal everyday scent, these fragrances lend energy and vitality to keep you feeling upbeat and cheerful no matter what the day brings. Spray it on generously before you start your day and easily curb the need for a second cup of joe.
