A perfume for every occasion

Not every fragrance is right for every occasion. In fact tailoring your perfume to suit a situation can have a positive impact on your mood and how others perceive you. Here’s what to wear to compliment every event in your diary.

First Date
We like to think of date-night fragrances, like a statement red lip – they should make an instant impression. Set the romantic mood with a floral scent, but steer clear of heady bouquets that can overpower. Instead, look for light, pink magnolia flower aromas like Tenderly.

A Party
Perfume is the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. But like you don’t want to wear the same dress to a party as someone else, you don’t want to wear the same perfume as everyone else either. Tempting notes of ylang ylang, which is found at the heart of Possess promises to be as individual as you are.

Business Meeting
For work, steer clear of very fruity or vanilla-based scents that can come across as playful. Instead, select a fragrance that is commanding and bold – oud or musk are ideal when you want to impress. We love: Giordani Gold Eau de Parfum. If you’re nervous about a big meeting, opt for stress-alleviating notes of lavender or jasmine.

Family Lunch
A day spent in the company of loved ones suits a feminine and bright fragrance. Ideal choice will be notes of rosé pepper, jasmine petals and musk in Paradise.
