Part 2 of 2: Secrets to Finding Your Signature Scent
In part one of this series, I took you through a quick, step-by-step exercise to begin identifying and defining your personal brand. In part two, I’ll discuss how to choose the right fragrance to fit your personal brand, along with a few recommended fragrances to get you started.
Select the right fragrance family and scent notes
First, let’s narrow down the search for your signature scent. While there are thousands of scents in the world, they can all be be categorized into seven fundamental scents:
Floral scents might be a single flower or a bouquet of floral scents. It might be lush and fruity, or light and evocative of a spring breeze. Fruity scents evoke images of orchards, spring days, and even forbidden fruits. Some fruity scents include green apple, fresh peach, juicy strawberry, and sugar plums. Woody fragrances are earthy and strong. They’re often associated with bolder scents and may include notes of cedar, oak, lavender, moss, sandalwood, and other scents. Sweet aromas embody a range of sugary and luxurious scents, and often include fruity notes, as well as hints of amber and vanilla. For more inspiration, explore our scent notes.
As you might already know, the best fragrances include multiple scent notes – high notes, heart notes, and low notes that make up a full, complex fragrance that truly embodies you and your personal brand. At Urthy Scents, we blend scent notes to create balanced, natural scents that help our customers express themselves more fully. Exploring scent notes is a great place to start, though, as you begin to define the scents and notes that will announce your presence and evoke the atmosphere and emotions you want people to associate with you.
