Understanding Fragrance: A Guide to Finding Your Signature Scent

Finding the perfect fragrance is a personal journey, influenced by your body chemistry and individual preferences. At WHO IS ELIJAH, we believe that everyone deserves to feel confident and empowered by their scent. Here are some tips to help you navigate the world of fragrance:

Personal Chemistry: Each person's skin has its own unique chemistry, which can affect how a fragrance smells on them. What smells great on one person may not smell the same on another. It's important to test fragrances on your own skin to see how they develop and if they complement your natural scent.

Fragrance Families: Fragrances are often categorised into different families such as floral, woody, oriental, and fresh. Understanding these categories can help you narrow down your options and find scents that align with your preferences.

Fragrance Notes: Fragrances are composed of top, middle, and base notes, which unfold over time to create the overall scent. Top notes are the initial impression, middle notes are the heart of the fragrance, and base notes are the lasting impression. When testing a fragrance, give it time to develop fully to experience all its nuances.

Application: Apply fragrance to pulse points such as the wrists, neck, and behind the ears. These areas emit heat, which can help to activate and diffuse the fragrance throughout the day.

Trial and Error: Finding your signature scent may require some experimentation. Don't be afraid to try different fragrances and see how they make you feel. Trust your instincts and choose scents that resonate with you personally.

By understanding these key aspects of fragrance, you can confidently explore a world of scents and find the ones that truly speak to you.There’s definitely a WHO IS ELIJAH scent waiting to be discovered that perfectly matches your unique style and preferences.
