FRAGRANCE and FASHION

Fragrance is a very important part of the fashion world, and an integral part of a woman’s fashion accessory wardrobe. There was a time when a woman had one signature scent. Now, fragrance is treated as a fashion accessory, with some women changing their perfume daily, or even more often, to suit their busy lives and changing moods. Some women have fragrance wardrobes of at least five or more different perfumes, rather than a single signature perfume, keeping one special perfume for very special occasions. Other women prefer having just one signature scent, and wearing that one all the time. When you apply perfume, apply it to pulse points such as the crease in your elbow and the back of your knees, wrist, neck, inner ankles and cleavage. Do not rub wrists together as this crushes the smell. Spraying a little into the air is also good if you walk straight into the perfume. This helps to diffuse it over your body. Do not simply apply to the neck. Work up the body, because scent rises. Wear a small cotton ball in your bra that has been soaked and dried in your perfume to increase lingering effects. Most fragrances can be divided into one of four categories: fresh greens, woody amber, floral fruity, and oriental spicy. Fresh greens have scents reminiscent of grass, leaves, and herbs. They tend to smell “clean” and suit women with vibrant, sporty personalities. Women who like to vary their perfume by occasion might consider a fresh green scent for outdoor daytime use. Woody amber like fragrances encompass a wide variety of warm scents. Most include traces of amber, sandalwood, cedar, and various spices. The combination of spices is what gives this scent family such versatility. Women wanting to wear a more sensual scent might wish to consider a woody amber fragrance, especially as an evening perfume. Floral fruity scents evoke a sense of playful innocence and romance. Most scents developed around a specific flower or fruit fall under this category. Some weigh heavier on the fruity side, while others smell like the interior of a florist’s shop. These scents are also excellent for daytime use. Women wanting a fresh, zesty fragrance would do well to seek out the former, while those going for a classy romantic scent should look for the latter. Oriental spicy scents are similar to woodsy amber scents but usually involve more of a floral element. Fragrances belonging to this category often use rich scents like orchid, orange flowers, vanilla, sweet spices, incense, and musk. These exotic perfumes can be used at any time, but work especially well for evening. Women who want a warm, mysterious, and distinctly feminine scent should look into this category further. Whatever your choice is, there are many, many fragrances and perfumes to choose from, designed and created by many different fragrance designers from around the world. Some of the various ones are showcased below. Click on an image to learn more about a particular fragrance.
