Mostly A’s – Earthy
You strive to live an organic life. Not necessarily in terms of raw cacao cheesecakes & goji berries – but you like to understand and see the origins of things. You’ll immerse yourself in the history of a new location and will use cinema and books to glimpse into different worlds and eras. You find rich and musky scents like patchouli, amber and sandalwood appealing. Lucky for you 5th Avenue by Elizabeth Arden ($49) and Premiere by Gucci (from $84) have perfectly captured the woody notes of a forest stroll in their quaint little bottles.
Mostly B’s – Wild & Unexpected
Intriguing, dramatic and always the first one on the dance floor. Your friends would describe you as bold, but you think the night is just too short not to let your hair down & order a 3rd espresso martini. You expect magic in every encounter, and the same goes for your perfume. You don’t just want a little bottle of spritz, you want a carefully concocted potion to keep everyone under your spell. Find yourself a little bit of black magic in Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent (from $99) or For Her by Narciso Rodriguez ($178 for 100ml).
Mostly C’s – Clean & Crisp
For you, the perfect scent is subtle, light and airy. It’s the sort of clean that can be likened to a well-organised and planned day: sharp, to the point and no-fuss. You have a soft spot for the minimalism movement and your wardrobe is full of versatile basics from Morrison, Portmans, Calvin Klein and CUE. Keep things simple with the fresh scents of Wood Sage and Sea Salt by Jo Malone London ($198 for 100ml) or Air Di Gioia by Giorgio Armani (from $110).
Mostly D’s – Richly Romantic
Refined, ladylike and classically elegant. Your usual daydream involves brisk walks along the River Seine with a straw hat, chic black brogues and a slightly indulgent croissant. You aren’t an over sharer, but love to leave people with the hint of what could be. An unfinished sentence, a quick smile to a passing stranger. For those of you nodding your head along to this description, keep a little bottle of Olympea by Paco Rabanne (from $81) or Rose De Chloe by Chloe (from $90) on your dressing table.
All of these fragrances can be found and sampled at MYER, Forrest Chase.
