A lot of people will have found themselves standing in the perfume aisles, endlessly trying on various different scents until they find the one that perfectly suits their style. But not many people know that there is a scientific reason why people are attracted to certain scents.
The section of the brain that registers different smells is also the part that controls emotions, so finding the ideal perfume could all come down to a person’s typical characteristics. Here, online perfume retailer Fragrance Direct highlights some of the most popular perfume aromas, and how each one matches up to our personalities.
From roses and jasmine flowers, to peonies and freesia, floral perfumes are for indulging the feminine side, leaving an aroma that is flirtatious, delicate and blooming with confidence. For the perfect floral perfume, Fragrance Direct suggests Giorgio Armani Code Pour Femme (30ml, £33.99), which is built around orange flowers and jasmine.
CITRUS AND GREENS
The citrus perfumes on the market will most likely engage with sporty, active females. With a laid-back nature and a tomboy-ish charm, these girls are willing to take risks and are up for anything. An ideal citrus perfume for sporty girls at Fragrance Direct is Donna Karan DKNY Be Delicious (30ml, £25.99), its apple shaped bottle hinting at the fresh green aromas that lie within.
Infused with spices from all over the world, oriental perfumes are for girls who dare to be unique. Not everyone will find the rich, intoxicating aromas of these scents to their tastes, but those who do are often considered to be mysterious and enigmatic, like the perfumes themselves. Fragrance Direct recommends Calvin Klein Euphoria (30ml, £27.99) for reflecting your one of a kind personality.
Some might mistake a “woody” perfume as being bland and unadventurous, but the opposite is true. A “woody” girl is for loving, compassionate women who love the earth and its sensual nature. The luxurious Gucci by Gucci (30ml, £32.50) is available from Fragrance Direct, and is sure to encompass the warm, free spirited nature of those who wear it.
There are plenty of perfumes on the market to suit all manner of personalities, from floral aromas to woody scents, and all of these can be ordered at discounted prices by visiting the Fragrance Direct website at http://www.fragrancedirect.co.uk/.
