Are you a fragrance fanatic? Here’s how to choose the right scent for every occasion
Gone are the days where a single fragrance was all you needed. Whether it’s a day at work or a night on the town, when it comes to standing out, selecting the right fragrance is key! Since the summer months have quickly faded into the distance, we thought it fitting to keep you up to date with the latest autumn/winter fragrances to see you though the colder months.
When at work…
Whilst you’re slogging away at your desk with a coffee in one hand and a croissant in the other, nothing is more off putting that the strong scent of perfume wafting under your nose. Work is the place to keep things subtle, no one wants to be smelling you from across the room, good or bad. Citrus scents are great, but they do disappear quickly so be sure to keep a travel atomiser with you to top up throughout the day!

When it’s the weekend…
When you’re not at work, you can go wild! This also applies to fragrance. Be bold and experiment with your fragrance collection. The weekend is a good time to try out fragrances that are still sitting on your beauty vanity. This time of year, fragrance layering is popular. We love the Chanel Chance fragrances. When combined, the warm heart notes and musk base notes create a whirlwind of happiness for every socialising opportunity.

When it’s date night…
It’s your favourite night of the week and it calls for a subtle yet intoxicating fragrance to do all the work for you. Our top tip is to pick two of your favourite fragrances. Spritz one on the front and one on the back of you, that way, your date will always have a long-lasting impression of you. Our favourite is Missguided’s latest fragrance, Babe Oud. Enticing and mysterious, this scent will leave a lingering impression that your companion will never forget.

Put your heels on, it’s party time!
It’s time to impress as you get dressed up to the nines all ready for your special occasion. When you’re going all out with your outfit, you’ll want to do the same with your fragrance. Don’t be shy, this is the one occasion where you can really shine. A shimmering shade of ultra feminine scent, the Tom Ford Velvet Orchid is the holy grail of fragrances. Perfect for those special occasions, it adds a touch of sparkle to every outfit!
