Different scents for different scenarios: What to wear and when?
Would one perfume ever be enough? Studies have shown that the fragrance you wear can impact how you’re perceived or valued in public. Fragrances can help create a sense of identity and these days, standing out could mean having a scent to remember.
It's good to have at least one signature scent but if a fragrance is worn too often it could get boring - impressing no one
Using the same fragrance repeatedly won’t help you stand out. In actuality it gives the impression that you’re boring or uninteresting and that could harm your social efforts.
The sense of smell is a powerful tool in human perception, research shows that scents can bring up strong emotions and with the right fragrance an opinion of a person could be changed positively.
One scent fits all isn’t a bad idea but there are ways to improve your scent game and impress those around you if you use the right fragrance to the right event.
Choosing the right cologne for the right situation can be tricky, scent association is as important as the air you breathe since the fragrance will be taken in by those around you and the fragrance you choose can impact how you’ll be seen by others. A scent that's overpowering or completely wrong for your date could have the unfortunate effect of knocking her out rather than sweeping her off her feet.
Standing out in a crowd filled with impressive people can be challenging, one thing we can control aside from the clothes we wear is the scent we have; the fragrance we choose to use. Finding the right cologne can be difficult if you don’t know what to look for, let us do the heavy lifting and allow our in house fragrance expert to guide you on what you need to know
