A very close female friend of mine was sorting through her perfume collection the other day, she has many bottles which have been bought for her as gifts over the years. She opened some of them and let me take a sniff, some I liked, some I really wanted to wear (but tried not to let on) and others I didn’t like. Much of the time we were in agreement about what was nice and what wasn’t but, at one point, I remarked how nice one of them was and her immediate response was, “Oh no! That one doesn’t suit her at all.”
Thinking about it, I’ve heard other women talk about fragrances that ‘suit them’ and I wondered what exactly that meant? I can see how clothes/shoes/makeup does or doesn’t suit a certain person/body type but it seems like an odd choice of word for a scent. And that lead me to consider my choice of femme-fragrance when I’m dressing. In the past I’ve always kept things simple, lightly fragranced soaps etc. and a very simple floral body spray. But, should I be more discerning? Are there different types/styles of fragrance that actually suit one person more than another? And ultimately, does it hurt the overall impression that I’m trying to make if I choose badly?
I’m really curious to know what you think.
