HOW TO: Find a Signature Scent

When it comes to perfume, there are a lot of ways to go wrong. Wearing too much, wearing too little, and the worst mistake of all: wearing the wrong scent. Perfumes are supposed to make you smell good, right? So how could you possibly go wrong? Well, it's easier than you think. Long gone are the days of drenching yourself in Abercrombie's headache-inducing perfumes or being first in line to snatch up a celebrity scent from Justin Bieber or Lady Gaga. Let's face it, when asked what perfume you wear, do you really want to respond with the name of a teenage pop star known for their off-stage antics? I certainly don't. Now that you're getting further into the world of adulthood, finding a signature scent is one of the most mature things you can do (in terms of your beauty routine, of course). There are a ton of great perfume options for girls our age and getting complimented on your scent will certainly give you a confidence boost. Now, finding a signature scent takes some experimenting, but believe us, in the end it is definitely worth it. Once you find the scent that you love, you can save so much time, money, and effort with your beauty routine. Signature scents and preferences are different for everyone but to get you started, we have come up with a list of 5 of our favorites including our own signature scents!

1. MADDIE'S SIGNATURE SCENT: Chanel Mademoiselle ($175 for .5 oz)
~I switched to this scent after high school and have loved it ever since! It has hints of orange and grapefruit as well as bourbon vanilla and white musk. It is feminine and classy and I feel like it matches my personality perfectly! It costs a pretty penny but the price is worth it for this timeless signature scent!

2. ERIN'S SIGNATURE SCENT: Marc Jacob's Woman ($95 for 3.4 oz)
~I stumbled upon this scent as a Christmas present from my Mom and I have been wearing it for 4 years now! It's a great scent enhanced by gardenias and I love it because it's light, which makes it feel elegant. I think it's perfect for any occasion and I always get compliments on it, so it's definitely worth a try! Marc Jacobs Daisy is also a great alternative that I use sometimes!

3. Euphoria Calvin Klein ($47 for 1 oz)
~Calvin Klein is known for their simple, yet classic designs and this perfume is no exception! It's a scent that seems to work for all ages. The pomegranate, black orchid, and mahogany notes will make you feel mysterious, yet classy!

4. Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb ($160 for 3.4 oz)
~Based on it's popularity, we trust that this perfume will definitely be worth a try! As the title implies, the scent is a burst of floral with notes of jasmine, rose, orchid, and freesia. It's on the pricey side, but popularity doesn't lie!

5. Juicy Couture ($70 for 1.7 oz)
~A fun brand like Juicy Couture has to have a fun fragrance, right? Right! This scent has notes of watermelon, passion fruit and a base note with vanilla. Sounds good enough to eat! You'll feel like an Upper East-Sider when you spritz on this fun and flirty scent!

Happy Hunting, Ladies!
