Personal style is usually thought of as all visual: Your style is defined by the clothes, shoes, accessories, and hair looks that you sport on a daily basis. But your invisible accessory, your fragrance, can tell someone just as much about you. Here are five perfume suggestions based on your potential traits and style preferences:
If Your Style Is Boho, Try Black Orchid for Women by Tom Ford
You have an inner flower child and you love suede, fringes, a good flowy floral dress, and sporting layers of jewelry. The right fragrance will bring out your hippie sophisticate with a mix of earthy and upscale. The high-quality patchouli, sandalwood, amber, and incense in Black Orchid mix with expensive and fresh French jasmine, ylang-ylang, and black truffle for a fragrance that’s sensual, but never pompous. A few key citrus notes give this fragrance a bright, happy feel, which goes perfectly with your personality.
If Your Style Is Uptown Chic, Try Decadence for Women by Marc Jacobs
Nothing defines you better than a life that’s refined, curated, and exclusive. You always spring for quality and seek out unique clothes and accessories that show off your discerning sense of style. That’s why the ultra-indulgent notes in Decadence, such as Italian plum, saffron, Bulgarian rose, and Sambac jasmine, are so well-suited to your lavish taste. And it sure doesn’t hurt that the bottle is shaped like a snake skin purse with a velvet tassel.
If Your Style Is Trendy, Try Bright Crystal for Women by Gianni Versace
You’re never afraid of an adventurous trend, whether it’s rocking a gown with cutouts or pairing commando boots with a velvet dress. Every time you get dressed you envision heads turning as you make your entrance into the office, restaurant, or party. In Bright Crystal, sweet and attention-grabbing yuzu, peony, and pomegranate blend with mature musk and woods for a fragrance that’s flirtatious and forward-thinking. A light mist will do the trick, but an extra pump or two will up the ante without becoming overwhelming.
If Your Style Is Preppy, Try Modern Muse for Women by Estee Lauder
Your preppy style is fresh, classic, and feminine. White floral notes can make the perfect finishing touch to your clean, orderly looks. This Estee Lauder creation includes a full bouquet of two different jasmines, lily, tuberose, and honeysuckle. For substance, Modern Muse is anchored with weightier notes of amber wood and musk. As an added bonus, this fragrance comes in an irresistible bow-topped bottle.
If Your Style Is Androgynous, Try New York Oud for Women and Men by Bond No. 9
It takes utter confidence to rock a tailored menswear-inspired ensemble with effortless command. This is exactly the right attitude for a bold, woodsy oud fragrance. What makes New York Oud ideal for a woman who loves a good pantsuit? Hints of rose, red plum, and honey nod to the feminine for an enigmatic statement that feels totally you.
