5 Tips For Choosing a Fragrant and Attractive Scent


Sometimes, no outfit is complete without the right scent to complement the look. Having a good scent can help boost your attractiveness on top of it being a great accessory. 

If you're looking for ways to up your perfume game, here are a few tips for choosing the right scents and how to wear them.

1) Choose a Subtle Scent

Try to avoid using heavy perfumes or scented body washes, as this can make you smell like a walking air freshener.

If you're looking for something that's subtle and won't overpower the room, rosemary and basil scented soap on your sink from Calvin Klein is a great choice. This subtle but fragrant scent will leave everyone in the room asking what you're wearing. 

2) Take Your Partner's Taste into Account

Finding the right perfume is a great way to show your partner how much you care about them and pay attention to their preferences. However, you don't want to go overboard.

Although they may enjoy strong fragrances, they may not like the same fragrance. Instead of blindly ordering the same cologne they prefer and hoping they'll love it, try a different scent. You can ask what their favourite scents are, or simply buy a few different fragrant samples from the store and give them a try. 

3) Don't Be Afraid to Mix It Up

Many people stick to a specific type of scent or brand for their perfume. If you stick to one scent, you can easily end up smelling the same all the time.

Adding a new scent to your rotation is a great way to change things up, especially if you want to continue smelling fresh and attractive. Try out a new scent from the local perfume store or your favourite store even if you don't want to buy a big bottle. 

4) Take Time to Find a Scent for You

Finding the right scent for you can be a long process, but you don't have to rush things.

You may be tempted to buy a bottle of cologne, only to find that you don't actually like it when you wear it. Instead of going with what you think will attract your partner, take the time to find a scent that you like, as well. 

5) Don't Go Overboard

When you're out looking for a new scent, you may want to buy everything on the shelf. After all, it's easy to get carried away with a new fragrance.

However, you don't want to go overboard with the scents that you wear. They can be overwhelming if you use a bunch at once. Try out a single scent at a time when you're first starting out, and you'll see for yourself what you like. 


The right scent can be an excellent way to feel confident and attractive. However, it's important to find a scent that you enjoy and really like. Otherwise, it may not work well with your body chemistry or you may not like wearing it.
