I love… when a guy (that you usually wouldn’t go for) walks past and you smell his cologne/aftershave. He, in that moment seems more attractive, more alluring and as he’s finally past you, you turn to look and your opinion on this guy is completely different. Interesting, but what is it about fragrance that changes moods and generally makes the moment fabulous?
We’ve all seen the adverts, a gorgeous sun tanned blond strutting down a corridor, 5 inch Louboutins, everyone’s eyes follow her and as she stares at you with the over the shoulder ‘come hither’ look, whispering... ‘Seduction’ the newest fragrance by John Doe.
I might add it’s not as superficial as that, forgive the mockery, but there is a process to finding ones signature fragrance. It’s like finding your favourite drink in Starbucks, it’s a case of trial and error, you may not like a blended coffee Frappuccino but later on down the line you’ll try a caramel macchiato and really like it!
Try finding fragrances for different occasions to start with for interviews, evenings out, holidays/vacations, special date. Being a ‘fragrance guru’ I shall part with a few words of wisdom for choosing one and also suggesting the ones that won’t decline your Visa (by RRP) ;)
