Finding your perfect perfume can be a tricky task. So why stick to just one? A wardrobe of fragrances means you’ll have your favourite for each and every occasion. And, just as you’d switch up your outfit for each you can do the same with your scent.
Ditto for the change in season. Once your Chloe ankle boots and Acne motorcycle jackets get pulled out from the back of your cupboard you should switch your fresh summer scent to something a little more seasonal.
Scents that are fresh, bright and sun-inspired just don't work on a cold rainy day, just as perfumes that are cosy, warm and enveloping in the winter can become overpowering in the summer when temperatures are warmer. That’s because your skin naturally heats up when the sun’s out and warm skin diffuses fragrance much easier (so you’ll smell that patchouli or amber note much stronger!).
It doesn’t mean you can’t wear your favourite sandalwood and vanilla-based scent come June, that's really up to you, but save it for a rainy day when it’s not as warm, or evening cocktails by the fire when the temperature drops and it'll smell way better.
Got a hot date but don't want to overpower them with clouds of your favourite musk? Why not try a perfume oil. Dab a few dots on your wrists and behind your neck so when they inevitably go to hug you, they'll catch a waft of your 'natural' scent. Genius no?
So what notes should you wear when temperatures drop and the scarf comes out? Think rich smooth notes of vanilla, warm notes of sandalwood and amber and musky notes of tobacco. Feeling extra festive? Opt for a scent full of seasonal spices like cinnamon, clove and ginger.
