Choosing a Fragrance

The best 3 tips you will ever get when choosing a fragrance for yourself or a loved one.

Whether you are after a fragrance to treat yourself or the perfect gift for someone you love, this read is for you. 

Read on for our easy guide to selecting the ultimate perfume

Understanding their taste for fragrances

Investigating their existing products can give some insightful hints into their fragrance preferences. Start with grooming products like body and beard oils, gels or lotions, to understand the kind of scent your loved one likes. 

Alternatively, the Scent Australia offers hundreds of fragrance options, according to your likes and interests. Check it out here.

Think outside the box

Believe it or not, fragrances have similar qualities to texture and colour, meaning you could select a fragrance according to the shades of its packaging. 

Another way of matching a perfume, is according to the hobbies or interests of your loved one. Often, sporty people like fresher scents, while artistic souls enjoy something richer, or more luxurious. 

Still not sure? Scent Australia Home’s range of fragrance gift packs feature a variety of scents, so your loved one can find their  favourite perfume on their own.

Does this perfume suit me

Our final tip is to let any perfume you try linger on your skin for a while. 

Instead of judging the scent immediately after spraying, let it settle before you sniff. 

Opening notes in a perfume usually disappear within minutes, and middle or heart notes will pop out just 20 minutes after the first spray. Consequently, base notes will take several hours to appear until they are warm enough to evaporate on your skin.

Base notes of sandalwood, musk, and Amber are infused in this accord, leading to a sensual background and exquisite aroma.

Rose Berry Oil (15ml)

As described in the inspiration of this oil, "There is a sweet disposition in breaking the boundaries of vulnerability. Without such, we are stagnant, and life can appear bleak. But investing in colour through deconstructing personal barriers will inevitably bring what you seek."

The Scent Australia's Home Rose Berry diffuser oil is the colour you need to invest in to give you what you seek. The beautiful and sensual fruity accord of blackcurrant with rose petals is complemented with hints of fir needle, clove, lemon peel and musk to complete its sweet aroma.

Adventure Oil (15ml)

Suppose you are an adventurous spirit looking to go on a quest with your scent, then the adventure oil will be perfect for you. The bursts of Mandarin, Bergamot and blackcurrant take you to a heart of Pink pepper, jasmine and roses, leading to a highly sensual aroma and a touch retro that characterize this creation. 

Middle notes of patchouli, sandalwood, oakmoss and American cedar complement this diffuser oil fragrance. Adventure oil is complete with a base note of Amber, vanilla and hyper-sensual musks that leaves behind a lasting and energetic scent.

Arabian Jasmine & Marigold Oil (15ml)

Drawing inspiration from the surrounding landscape, Arabian Jasmine & Marigold works to marry the notes of bright florals with the precious delicacies of jasmine. Jasmine Sambac heroes this scent, with blossoms hand-picked for fragrant infusion. 

A middle note of energizing marigold is infused in the mix to accompany this scented account. Base notes of Ylang-Ylang, Honey and Benzoin complete the ArabianJasmine & Marigold Oil soft fragrance. Comparable to the gloss of a white pearl, the delicate scent can relax a room and offer an invisible embrace to those that step foot in its presence.
