You like to think of yourself as classic – and that’s wonderful. So many people choose a “signature scent” and stick with it forever. On the other hand, there are people like Donatella Versace who has a collection of perfume numbering in the hundreds. So where do you fit in? How often should you change your perfume? Honestly, there’s no hard and fast answer to such a personal beauty question. However, there are some guidelines to help you make the most of your fragrance library.
Take these factors into consideration:
- Does your fragrance complement your outfit? We like to think of perfume as an accessory – like a necklace or a great pair of shoes. Scent is very closely connected to memory and mood, so keep that in mind before you apply. (For instance, a yellow sundress pairs very nicely with a citrus fragrance.)
- Some scents work better in different seasons. Take the time of year into consideration as you choose a perfume. The change of the season is a great cue for changing up your fragrance game.
- What are you doing? Fragrances should suit the occasion! Daytime scents should be on the lighter side, and evening scents should be a bit bolder.
