How to Choose a Signature Scent


When it comes to choosing a signature scent, many people find the process to be quite daunting. After all, there are so many different fragrances and perfumes on the market these days, how can you possibly decide which one is right for you? In this blog post, we will give you some tips on how to choose a fragrance or perfume that will perfectly represent your personality. Keep reading for more information!

The first thing you need to do when choosing a signature scent is to figure out what type of fragrances you like. Do you prefer floral scents? Or are you more partial to woody or musky aromas? Once you have a good idea of the types of fragrances that appeal to you, it will be much easier to narrow down your choices.

Another important factor to consider is the occasion for which you will be wearing your fragrance. Are you looking for a scent that you can wear every day? Or do you need something a little more special for evenings out or formal occasions? Again, thinking about when and where you will be wearing your perfume will help you to make the right choice.

Finally, don’t forget to take into account your budget. Perfumes and fragrances can range in price from affordable to downright expensive. It is important to find a scent that you love but that also fits within your budget. With so many different options on the market, there is sure to be a fragrance that is perfect for you, no matter your budget.

Now that you know how to choose a signature scent, it’s time to start shopping! Keep these tips in mind and you’ll be sure to find the perfect perfume or cologne for you. See some of the best selling perfumes.

Nicki Minaj


The debut fragrance of recording artist Nicki Minaj, Pink Friday is a fragrance that is fearless, confident, and feminine.



The brand known for bringing about the much loved “little black dress,” CHANEL continues the reputation for classic elegance with its perfume collection.

The ultimate in femininity, CHANEL Nº 5 was the debut perfume designed by “Coco” Chanel as a cutting edge statement for the liberated spirit of the roaring 20’s. Aldehydes make the floral top notes of ylang-ylang and neroli sparkle, as inticing jasmine and mayrose make an entrance as the heart. A sensual base of sandalwood and vetiver lingers. The heavy transparent glass bottle with clear lines was considered to be inspired from a toiletry bottle owned by a lover. THE classic choice.

Inspired by the irrepressible spirit of young Coco Chanel, COCO MADEMOISELLE is a sexy Oriental fragrance considered to be the quintessance of a great fragrance. Spicy and exotic top notes of orange, bergamot, and Tunisian curaçao introduce the signature CHANEL hearts of jasmine and rose absolute, highlighted by Florentine iris. An elegant and luxurious base lingers scents of Indonesian patchouli, Haitian vetiver, Bourbon vanilla, and tonka bean on the skin. Styled classically, the bottle is a luxurious addition to any dressing table.

The young, floral CHANEL CHANCE is for those that understand that part of dreaming is taking chances. Top notes of fresh and clean hyacinth, white musk, and exotic pink pepper introduce a heart of fresh vetiver and iris, followed by a base of amber and patchouli. A round glass bottle encases this romantic fragrance.

CHANCE EAU FRAICHE – a fresh, sparkling option to the CHANCE original, CHANCE EAU FRAICHE adds notes of greens.

CHANCE EAU TENDRE – Softer and more feminine than the CHANCE original, CHANCE EAU TENDRE adds fruity grapefruit and quince notes.

CHANEL COCO is an warm and sensual Oriental-Spicy fragrance claimed to be elegant and barbaric at once. Top notes of coriander, pomegranate blossom, mandarin, peach, jasmine and Bulgarian rose welcome heart notes of mimose, cloves, and orange blossom, finishing with a base of labdanum, amber, sandalwood, tonka bean, and civet.

Perfect for that little black dress, COCO NOIR is a dark Baroque inspired by Chanel’s love for Venice. Grapefruit and bergamot add enigmatic character to the classic COCO. COCO NOIR proves that black is like nothing else.

Designed to be multifaceted like a diamond, CHANEL ALLURE is unlike other perfumes that dry down along a pyramid structure. The note hierarachy has six overlapping facets that have no established domination. Feminine florals of honeysuckle, water lily and magnolia, fruits of manderine and passionfruit, and seductive scents of jasmine, may rose and Bourbon vanilla all shift and sparkle as you move.

Reminiscent of the perfectly lined crystal, CHANEL CRISTALLE, is a green, expensive scent. Sweet top notes of mandarin, peach, Sicilian lemon and Lily of the Valley introduce hearts of Jasmine, Iris, Rosewood and Hyacinth over a green base of vetiver and oakmoss. Floral-fresh.

Light-hearted and sophisticated, CHANEL Nº 19 is a floral-woody-green harmony. The number 19 was chosen to commemorate Coco Chanel’s birthday, and was designed for her to use and to give to friends and favourite clients. Top notes of galbanum, bergamot, neroli and hyacinth introduce the traditional heart pairing of rose and jasmine with orris, narcissus and ylang-ylang. A stylish base of musk, sandal, oakmoss, cedarwood and leather. The scent of the favorite people of Coco Chanel.
