When it comes to fragrances, there are 4 types of people. The person who does not wear fragrances and avoids it at all costs, the person who has one signature scent, the collector (usually has 50+ bottles), and the person who falls somewhere in between. This is the person who has several bottles of fragrance, but is not necessarily a collector. Perhaps you would like to be in this category. Where do you start?
Five bottles of fragrance is a nice starting place. Why five? Well, for the five different atmospheres or occasions you may encounter.
1 bottle of fragrance should be for a work environment - something mass appealing and that does not leave an obnoxious scent trail.
1 bottle of fragrance should be for nights out, like a date night. Maybe something dark or mysterious that sets you apart from others.
1 bottle of fragrance should be for casual days. Something that smells nice, but doesn't necessarily make a statement.
1 bottle of fragrance should be for weekend brunch types of occasions. Something that won't clash with other people's fragrances if you're meeting with a group.
And lastly, 1 bottle of fragrance should be a "dumb reach" item...something you grab when you have no idea what you should be wearing.
If you have an occasion to attend and don't know what to wear, give us a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org and perhaps we can give you some ideas.
