There is something about fragrance that makes us feel good. Wearing a scent that works with your body chemistry can lift your moods and even change your behavior. Fragrance encourages the release of endorphins that make us feel good. That being said, finding the right scent for yourself can feel like a huge task as there are thousands of perfumes on the market today. However, once you find a signature scent, you would want to use it for years to come.
Generally, fragrances fall into five categories and they are woody, floral, earthy, fresh, and sweet. There is a fragrance out there for everyone. It all comes down to personal preference. You would want to find a scent that is playful, not too musky, not too feminine, and warm. Most of all you want a scent that is you. Perhaps there is a special place or situation that you like the scent to emulate like an ocean breeze, the long walks in the woods, or a special evening you have experienced? Whether it is a fruity fragrance or a musk-based scent, there are plenty of scents to discover.
Whether you are searching for a new signature scent or are looking to gift someone this holiday season, check out the top trending perfumes for women below.
