Citrus lovers & group leaders

Do you always take charge in group situations? Would your friends and family describe you as an alpha man or woman? If so, we bet you gravitate toward citrus-based fragrances, which are usually old and abundant. Its compositions are based on lemon, orange, bergamot, grapefruit or mandarin, with other citrusy, aromatic and tart notes for men and floral notes for women. These are strong-minded, ambitious, natural leaders and may sometimes be viewed as dominant and aggressive. But don't worry, there’s no shame in being a shark. People attracted to the zesty, tangy smells of citrus are also strong-minded, ambitious, and usually the ones who get what they want.

Rose lovers & introspectives

The floral family highlights the aroma of fresh flowers like rose, jasmine, lily, and frangipani to create classically feminine perfumes. It has been suggested that ladies who love fragrances with floral notes are the introspective, sensitive, and cautious. These people are introspective and sensitive to the needs of others. They tend to weigh all of their options before making a choice, and they usually take the time to reflect on their decisions instead of simply diving right into the action.

Oriental & energetic

The oriental family features orange blossom, incense, resins, and sandalwood with sweet and warm notes like vanilla, musk, cinnamon, and cardamom. These fragrances are said to attract women who are the life of the party - lively, energetic, and social. So, for example if you love the smell of warm vanilla, you're the person who knows how to get a party started. You love dancing, drinking, meeting new people, and socializing in buzzing atmospheres. Staying at home on the weekend isn’t your cup of tea, as you’d much rather spend the night out with friends. Are we right?

Fruity & moody

You'd imagine that people who wear fruity perfumes would be as sweet as the watermelon scent on their necks. Interestingly enough, you are mistaken. According to research, people who love fruity scents tend to be more irritable, cranky, and sometimes pessimistic. So, if you love anything that smells of berries, apples, or other tropical fruits, it's maybe time to adjust your attitude, yet not necessarily your perfume. 😉
