Secrets to the perfect scent for your personality

31st July 2012 Print

There is a science to choosing your perfume. In fact, research has been conducted into why certain people are attracted to particular scents.

A primitive part of your brain taps into smells - an instinctive area which is hardwired to your limbic system – this is where all your emotional reactions are controlled: hate, desire, pleasure, addiction… Sounds like a designer perfume line! And for a good reason.

Finding the One

We’ve all been there, trawling through Boots, looking for that perfect scent we believe is out there somewhere – that ideal partner aroma that will stay with us for a lifetime; in short, our signature perfume.

We always leave broken-hearted. Few enter the perfume market, and fall completely in love with a scent. But, with a little guidance, you might just find the Holy Grail perfume.

And your personality will play a huge part. Although we can’t promise your fragrance soul mate, we can match you to some friendly scents, that will make a statement every time you enter a room, or linger on a guy’s shirt long after that hot date, so he can’t stop thinking about you.


You don’t need a tattoo to wear flowers on your skin. Smell as if you’ve been delicately pruning roses, or mischievously rolling around in flower beds.

Who? Florals are for the hopelessly romantic. A floral girl is a girly-girl: flirtatious and feminine, with underlying delicacy and confidence. Wear this perfume, and you won’t have to wait long for prince charming to pick you!

Spices from all over the world make up this mysterious potion. An enigmatic fragrance for a girl who keeps her cards (but not her perfume) to her chest.

Who? Rich, and exotic, this perfume should come with the warning sign: not for everyone. If you consider yourself unique or a bit different, and don’t make friends easily, this fragrance is for you. This powerful scent complements the passionate artist you are.

Ralph Lauren, Hot


Contrary to its title, this isn’t a perfume for girls that fade into the upholstery. Goddesses and earth babes, this is your calling.
