Find Your Signature Scent Here

A scent is a subtle, intimate way of uncovering the type of person you are and your personality. 

8 years ago, a 15-year-old me received my very first fragrance gift from a best friend for me to wear for a special event in school. Having it and owning a perfume feels different than just trying out colognes from my Moms. Though I used to wear colognes when I was young and was able to try out different scents, the gifted scent feels different. It feels like I own the scent. It reveals a part of me that is calm, sweet, and refreshing. Wherever I go and on whatever occasion, I always make sure to wear it. I make sure that the scent I leave makes an influence and an impact that shows my character as a person. From then on, I consider it as my signature scent and I try to look for scents nearly similar to the gifted one. From that experience, I learned that our scent is partly a reflection of ourselves. If you want to go bold, then choose a bold one. Again, our chosen scents speak on our behalf of us.

Years later, my search for the same perfect scent continued, and came across so many lovely fragrances. I tried and tested lots of them and I want to share with you in this writing the best fragrances for every occasion. I hope you don't miss this one out and upon writing, I'm hoping you'll find your perfect signature scent for every occasion.

Different Perfume Groups 

There are an infinite number of scents and combinations of it in the market today making it a little hard to identify and compare each one from each other. Gladly, there's a simplified process for perfume shoppers to classify the world of fragrance by categorizing it into families.

For additional information, there is what we call a fragrance wheel. The Fragrance Wheel is a circular representation that portrays the four fragrance families and how each of their related subfamilies relates to one another.

The Fragrance Wheel is created by smell specialist Michael Edwards that aims to help both perfumers and fragrance enthusiasts. They group families of scents that have similar sensory qualities like families that are closer together on the wheel and those farther apart are less so. As a result, they are more likely to blend nicely together in a scent.

There are three main fragrance groups:

  • FRESH – citrus, fruity, green, water 

The compositions in the Fresh family are zingy, fragrant, and supported by undertones of woodsy elements. Experts identify it as Smells fresh, herbaceous, lemony, clean, and marine. Its subfamilies are Aromatic, Citrus, Green, and Water. Its typical notes are Citrus, white flowers, and bergamot.

  • WOODY – woods, mossy woods, dry woods, aromatic 

Warm, luxurious perfumes of the wood family combine drier elements like cedar with incense-like aromas like sandalwood and patchouli. It's known for its warm, opulent, powdery scents. Its subfamilies are mossy woods and dry woods. It's composed of common notes like Patchouli, vetiver, and sandalwood.

  • FLORAL – floral, soft floral, floral oriental 

The floral family is one of the most prevalent types of scents that typically takes on a feminine feature in smell and is used in many popular perfumes. People wear it on occasions like spring and summer. 

Floral smells like Powdery, Newly Cut Flowers, Fruity, floral, and soft floral subfamilies. It also has Rose, jasmine, and orange blossom as typical notes.

Different Occasions, Different Scents

It feels good having different scents for different occasions. So, here are a few of the top scents according to the occasion.


Traveling, working, and running errands are the main components of morning routines. It is crucial to select softer scents, such as flowery, lemony, or earthy. It's not a good idea to use a strong smell amid the sun's heat. It is a good idea to have a backup plan in case the backup fails.

Have you thought about the perfect scent for mornings? Giorgio Armani personally devised the spiciness of the Armani Code lady's wear scent. You'll smell fantastic for hours after wearing this scent, which has notes of grapefruit, musk, rose, and sandalwood. This fragrance is ideal for morning people and gives off energy and energizing feels as you look forward to a bright day.

As a Gift 

Offering your friends a bottle of perfume makes them remember and experience things. Therefore if you have to purchase perfume for someone else, go with unisex or classic scents. More so than other perfumes, neutral ones have grace and inclusion.

I am worrying about the ideal fragrance to give.
