Is your man wearing the right aftershave to suit his personality?

Did you know that a fragrance on a man says a lot about his personality so the question I ask ‘Is your man or friend, or male family member wearing the right aftershave for his personality?’ A signature scent is an extension of a man’s soul according to Roja Dove.

If the man you know likes his scent citrusy  then he is probably quite sporty as these fragrances are clean, sharp and energetic. A Gourmand fragrance takes their cues from food as the notes are based around vanilla, chocolate & coffee notes. These fragrances have become quite popular recently and are for the sensual males.

Woody fragrances are usually sought by the solid and easy going and generally worn by married men. Oriental fragrances are for the hedonist male who love staying until the end of the party. Whilst Oud scents are for the self assured men as real Oud is an expensive ingredient.

Other male fragrance families are the marine ones which were huge in the 90’s and still going strong for the minimalist men and finally if your man like his sporty scents, these are very uplifting with spicy notes and worn by those that enjoy sports.

I hope you have found this useful, is it accurate? Please share with me your findings and if you know of someone that still hasn’t found their signature scent, share this with them it just might help.

Time to Spring Clean your Fragrances

Time to Spring Clean your fragrances. What, I hear you say but I always wear my favourite fragrance whatever the season, uh oh!

As the seasons change so do our scents, our skin and our emotions and therefore so should our fragrances. A wardrobe of fragrances is no longer a rare commodity as these days we change our outfit to our mood so why not our fragrance.

Say goodbye to the Winter scents which are usually musky and warm to help our mood with the weather and dark nights. Therefore come Spring we should lighten up with fragrances that are fresh and bright. Many high street fragrances relaunch in the Springtime with traditional florals and sparkling citrus scents.

Think peony, lime, fresh green notes to bring about energy and freshness, allowing you thoughts of the sun beaming on your face and look for base notes that include Cedar and Tonka Bean as these give the fragrance a powerful base that can last for hours.

A little tip when applying your fragrance. as they contain alcohol is to never apply to clothes or jewellry to prevent staining.

I hope you have found this of value, I would love to know what scent you will be wearing this Spring and if you would like to reach out for some fragrance , please tips please do. You can connect with me here (


Fragrances of the 90’s making a comeback

The Scent of Nostalgia is returning for Christmas 2017 and the shops are predicting the bestsellers will be retro fragrances. Fragrances from over 20 years are making a comeback bigtime.

Three of the top five UK fragrances predicted are all vantage scents – Angel by Thierry Mulger, Daisy by Marc Jacobs and Alien also by Thierry Mulger. Fragrance retailers have seen a huge shift in customers looking to buy re-branded classics from the 90’s.

Have you purchased one of these classic fragrances this year or did you used to wear them in days gone by. I would love to hear from you.

When to wear your fragrance?

With so much choice in today’s fragrances, it’s rare that people actually have a signature scent these days. Are you like me, do you change your fragrance daily? If so consider these tips of when to wear certain fragrance notes.

– Woody notes are strong and would be useful to wear for an interview or somewhere you want to be seen as a strong individual, maybe giving a speech.

– Spicy notes are comforting and would be ideal to a parents evening.

– Oriental notes are very seductive and perfect for a date night.

– Green notes are considered sporty and should be worn in the daytime and for all those extra curricular activities you go to after school.

– Fruity notes are feminine and friendly, wear these on a shopping trip or lunch with friends.

– Floral notes are ideal to show off your feminine side, consider a wedding or event.

These are just a guideline and I hope they have helped. Not long ago I didn’t wear perfume daily as I used to save it for best but now luckily I don’t have too. If you would like to know more, comment below or get in touch.
