How to Find Your Signature Scent

How to Find Your Signature Scent

Share
When I look at the array of bottles and tubes that sit atop my dresser, I wonder why I have so many when I only use about four. But when I open and take a whiff of my old perfumes, I remember.

Fragrances bring back memories of pastimes in a way that nothing else can. I know when I smell the aroma of CK One (one of my first perfume purchases!), vivid images of my freshman year of college come to mind. And the few drops I have left of Clinique Happy smell like my old best friends.

Despite my connection to these wistful scents, I always have trouble choosing a fragrance to make new memories with! Over the years, I would just go to the store and pick the smell I liked most (a cute bottle was always a plus too!).

I didn't think there was a rhyme or reason to why I chose a specific scent. Then I discovered Marie Claire's Fragrance 101, which taught me that choosing a fragrance typically depends on emotions, but logic is also important because favorite scents often belong to the same family.

I wasn't convinced until I took the fragrance finder quiz! I was asked a variety of questions from what's my favorite season to what type of male celebrity am I attracted to. By the end, I had several intriguing suggestions to choose from!

My results were rather accurate, describing me as calm, yet confident. And I loved how they said my "boho-chic aesthetic is more glam than granola," suggesting that I might enjoy a scent that's sexy yet earthy and unconventional. It turns out MC's recommendations are similar to my old favorites!
