Your Signature Scent

For Marilyn Monroe, it was Chanel No. 5; for Audrey Hepburn it was Givenchy's L'Interdit, while for Anne Hathaway it is Chanel’s Chance and for Heidi Klum it’s Yves Saint Laurent’s Opium. So what’s your signature scent?
You give your outfit, makeup and hairstyle considerable thought, but what about your fragrance? That lingering smell you leave behind says a lot about the type of woman you are! Choosing the fragrance that best complements your personality can be quite overwhelming…from light and subtle to powerful and intense, fruity and sweet to sensual and flirtatious, the choice is endless. Read on to find your ideal signature fragrance, the scent that evokes within you an emotional response and captures the essence of who you are!

Strong & Independent
Are you that girl who has it all together, is extremely organized, knows who she is and has no problem expressing it?  Are you determined and gregarious and refuse to let anything stand in the way of getting what you want? Then the enduring Chanel Coco Mademoiselle will take you where you are going; feminine, sexy, and intense, it is simple yet complex. Inspired by the modern woman, BOSS Ma Vie by Hugo Boss is another match, reflecting your aura of strength and confidence. Other fragrances perfectly suited to strong, independent women include Gucci Première eau de toilette created as a celebration of the thrill of success and Fendi’s alluring and fierce Furiosa. You may also find your signature scent in the new fragrance from Jennifer Lopez J Luxe, which was inspired by her own self-determination.

Spontaneous & Carefree
If you’re that girl who is flirty and fun, the one who makes every hour of a summer’s day count, then fresh, floral fragrances are your perfect match. A lover of life and all things beautiful, fragrances such as Taylor Swift’s Incredible Things and Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia eau de toilette were made for you! They reflect your desire for good times, a little drama and a lot of attention! Your ‘life of the party’ personality and your forever cool attitude is accentuated by scents such as Nina Ricci Les Delices de Nina and Marc Jacobs Daisy Sorbet, fragrances described as sparkling, mischievous, magical and mesmerizing – sound familiar? J by Jennifer Aniston is another scent perfect for all you free spirits! Taking inspiration from the beach, its lemon, citrus, green tea and mandarin notes are light and natural, subtly reflecting your carefree approach to life. Sparkling with mango and lush neroli, Oscar de la Renta’s new fragrance Oscar FLOR was inspired by his love of gardens – natural, bright, and fragrant.

Understatedly Elegant
If you prefer to think of yourself as the woman who is sophisticated and chic, one whose wardrobe is timeless, full of classy ¾ pencil skirts, white blouses and sexy stilettos, then your ideal scent is none other than Chanel No. 5, a classic fragrance that is as essential as your little black dress.  You are the type of woman who definitely knows what suits you best, and you don’t wear something just because it’s “in”, you prefer the classics! Gucci by Gucci is a timeless and sophisticated fragrance sure to add a touch of elegance to any outfit. Dolce & Gabbana’s The One will also reflect your rich and opulent nature, embodying all that you are. You may also want to try Yves Saint Laurent’s most recent fragrance Black Opium; with notes of coffee dominating the scent, as well as accords of pink pepper, orange blossom, jasmine and vanilla, it is both alluring and understated.  Flowerbomb by Victor & Rolf is another classic yet sparkling feminine scent worth trying. Its contrasting sensations may be just what you are looking for!

Oriental Princess
Ohhh, yes! The exotic and bold woman with a hint of sensuality, a touch of romanticism, and a whole lot of exoticism… If this sounds like you, reach for those wood-based scents that have rich, bold and overall exotic notes of amber, vanilla, and agarwood (oud). Your perfect fragrance is somewhat deeper and heavier than other fragrances, but all the more distinct and alluring. Oud Fleur by Tom Ford is one such scent; it is modern, bold, and smooth with an exotic mix of agarwood and rose. Oud Al Qasr by Roberto Cavalli features cedar, agarwood, labdanum and vanilla and is designed for the sophisticated oriental woman who seduces with a mere glance. Valentino’s Valentina Rosa Assoluto is another perfect fragrance for the exotic woman, the warm and earthy rose-infused scent was directly inspired by the Middle East. Lancôme’s La Vie Est Belle L'Absolu de Parfum is another match. A luxuriously intense version of the original La Vie Est Belle, it is rich and heady – just what you need! Other fragrances perfectly suited to the oriental princess include Amouage Fate Woman and the bold but smooth Burberry Brit Rhythm for Her Floral.
