Choosing the right Perfume for every occasion

Top tips on how to match our fragrance to the occasion we are attending  

Not every perfume can be used on all occasions. What fragrance to wear according to mood and event? How to use scent in events?

We will help you narrow down your perfume choices and figure out what perfume is appropriate depending on the occasion?

Pick the right perfume to fit the occasion you are attending: 

Office friendly perfumes 

We spend a lot of our time at the office, especially if we are workaholics. What is more, we want our colleagues to respect and admire us. Therefore, when at work we strive for perfection- we seek an immaculately professional business style. We pick our outfits very diligently. Why? Because we know that our clothes speak volumes about our personality and because the chic attire boosts our confidence. 

What about the fragrance? It should be fancy too. One can wear elegant suits, but if their perfume is repulsive, this will result in a negative image. 

So, what perfume should we wear at work?

It should be a long-lasting one for sure – we spend a good deal of time working. Cling to fresh scents, not too strong and not too spicy. 

We recommend traditional fragrances, preferably floral or fruity. Take care to achieve balance: not too sweet, not too heavy, not too bitter. 

Perfumes with a green tea note, creamy and soft flair, with delicate nature of mint, peach, peony, ylang-ylang or cozy citrus scent are among the best choices for the office environment. 

The fragrance should relax you; your job is stressful enough. What is more, sometimes your perfume may provoke aggression in your co-workers. So stick to the balance and…

Discretion is the key! 

Here are some fragrances you won’t go wrong with at your workplace:

  • Infusion d'Iris eau de parfum by Prada
  • Elie Saab 'Le Parfum'
  • Chanel Eau Vive
  • Christian Dior Eau Sauvage
  • Bvlgari Eau Parfumee au The Blanc
  • Burberry The Beat
  • Elizabeth Arden Green Tea
  • Chanel Coco Mademoiselle
  • Gucci Flora by Gucci

Wearing Perfume at Business Meeting 

The good rule of a thumb is “be memorable”! When we attend a business meeting, we want to impress our clients, investors, or potential business partners. So, choose a perfume, which speaks of your personality, good sense, and sophistication. The appropriate notes are: jasmine, amber, patchouli, woody notes, oriental-floral notes. 

  • Giorgio Armani Armani 
  • Chanel Chanel N°5 
  • Donna Karan 'Cashmere Aura' 
  • Thierry Mugler Alien
  • Ange ou Demon by Givenchy

Just be careful with the nostrils of the other attendants of the meeting. You can wear perfume you like but do not overdose it. 

Perfumes appropriate for a Black- tie event 

 A black-tie event is coming up, and you want to be stunning? You have a killer outfit, and you wonder which scents would complete the perfect appearance? Well, stick to the following two notes: woody and musk. Of course, you can try amber and floral notes, but if you want to leave a striking impression and a trail of mystery, it’s better to rely on musky notes. What else? Jasmin has always been attractive - floral but with an animalic background. 

  • Chanel Chanel No 5
  • Guerlain Shalimar Ode a la Vanille
  • Bvlgari Jasmin Noir
  • Tom Ford Noir 
  • Aramis Perfume Calligraphy Rose
  • Guerlain Shalimar Parfum Initial

What perfume is suitable for a date

When it comes to dating – fragrance is a tough choice. Why? Well, let’s admit it, because we want our scent to flirt with the senses of our object of desire. But if he doesn’t like the same types of perfumes you like? What if he finds our fragrance too heavy or too sweet? Do not perform any experiments and be traditional! Flowers are most suitable for romantic dates. You can try fresh, oriental, and exotic notes. Why not a whole bouquet, a flower bomb and a bit of sweetness? 

We recommend gardenia, lily of the valley, jasmine, and peony. Your perfume should arise sexual desire, but too much is never good. So, be moderate! 

You can try:

  • Gucci Guilty
  • Marc Jacobs Oh, Lola! 
  • Dior Pure Poison
  • Tom Ford White Patchouli

Best Fragrances for a Party/ Wedding or other special occasions

You are invited to a wedding or party? How to draw attention? - By applying fancy perfume? First of all, your fragrance should be in compliance with the theme and the place of the party. Whether it’s on the beach, in a restaurant, in summer or winter, is it a baby party, family party or a big party in a luxury restaurant? This is the first thing to take into consideration. You don’t want to feel out of place, right? That is why, let your perfume choice depends on the environment. For example, do not use heavy scents for a party at the beach or for a baby party. If the event is held at an exquisite restaurant – too sweet notes, like vanilla are out of the question. Here are some suggestions for perfumes you can wear on almost every special occasion, no matter where it is held:

  • Bright Crystal Absolu by Versace
  • Oscar De la Renta’s Something Blue
  • Marc Jacobs Daisy
  • Vera Wang Be Jeweled

Fragrance Choice for Sport and Fitness Activities

Even when we exercise, we want to smell good. What fragrance is appropriate for your workout? Pick up something fresh, light, and energetic. Spray a little bit on your skin. There is no need to use extra perfume, because the fragrance will react with your sweat and the result won’t be welcome. 

Here are some workout perfumes to try:

  • Dolce&Gabbana D&G Light Blue
  • Paco Rabanne Black XS
  • Salvador Dali Dalilight
  • Yves Saint Laurent Saharienne

What to wear at a Job interview 

The scent of perfume can be a distracter, so should you wear perfume to an Interview? It’s really a controversial issue. Some are for and many are against. However, specialists are more likely to say – it’s better to put a small amount. Why? Because you will be nervous and you probably will start sweating. So, if you wear perfume the chance to make a bad impression by smelling of sweat is smaller. 

We recommend light perfumes, almost “invisible”. Very strong, sweet, and vivid perfumes may frustrate your employer. Do not let your perfume ruin the interview. Show that you are well-groomed, clean, and balanced person – the ideal candidate! 

For you, job seekers, here are some scents to be your alliances at the interview:

  • Flora by Gucci 
  • Versense by Versace
  • Miss Dior by Christian Dior
  • Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline

What are the best fragrances to wear every day? We recommend crispy, fresh, or floral notes. Not too strong of course. Our advice, wear your favorite perfume!
