Which Perfume Matches Your Personality?

I love when people have a signature scent.  Sometimes it is their perfume or cologne, or sometimes it’s a mixture of their laundry detergent and soap, or other times it’s the aroma of their home that they carry with them.  You begin to associate them with that scent, and you could be miles and miles away from them but you catch a whiff of it and it makes you think of them.  It tugs at your heart, brings back memories, can make you feel happy or at ease…scent is such a powerful thing. I love that a person’s scent can tell you certain things about their personality, too.  I put together this little quiz so you can see which type of scent matches your personality — try it out and let us know how accurate the results are!

I got a blend of C’s and D’s with one B, so maybe I’m just a chameleon. ;) Strange thing is my go to scent is always fresh, graceful and floral so I guess I’m more of a mixed gal!

I picked mostly Ds and this description is perfect… My answers were all Ds with one C, and I do love a woody scent also. Awww you get me :)

C’s and D’s here. The results weren’t very surprising – more dead on, than anything. I love musky, spicy scents. My go-to perfumes are ‘My Place or Your’s, Gina?’ by Benefit and ‘Sensual Amber’ from Bath and Body Works!

mostly c’s! yet, my favorite scents are florals.

I could go with either a’s or b’s in all of them which was amazing because I do love the citrusy scents with hints of the romantically sweet. I never go a day without my Nina by Nina Ricci. It’s the perfect mix for me.
