What does his perfume say about his personality?
Forget the Myers-Briggs test when it comes to deciphering your man. A glance at his fragrance shelf could reveal more about his personality than you think.
If he likes Citrus perfumes…
He is an uncomplicated soul. Citrus fragrances with common top notes like bergamot, lemon, orange, tangerine and grapefruit, are characteristically light and fresh, and a natural mood lifter. Men who favour these scents tend to be straightforward, focused and driven in life. They may not be the most imaginative, but they are certainly the most reliable.
On his shelf: CK One, Dior Eau Savage, Clinique Happy for Men, Dolce&Gabbana Light Blue
If he likes Aquatic perfumes…
He is bold and adventurous. Aquatic or marine perfumes use a blend of fresh florals, citrus and mineral notes to create that signature cool and invigorating ocean feel. Men who like aquatic scents can’t keep still. Think of them as restless creatures always on the lookout for their next challenge. They are also a lot of fun, and tend to be the life of the party.
On his shelf: Bulgari Aqua Marine Pour Homme, Davidoff Cool Water, Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio, Kenzo Homme Sport Extreme, LUX Aqua Sparkle
If he likes Floral Musk perfumes…
He is creative and artistic. Floral musk fragrances – like LUX Love Forever – are sophisticated blends that pair woody notes of cedar, patchouli or sandalwood with lighter florals like violet, freesia and lavender. They tend to appeal to guys who beat to the rhythm of their own drum. Not the type to follow the crowd, they love testing the boundaries of societal norms, and being recognized for their superior intellect.
On his shelf: Dior Homme, Paul Smith for Men, Chanel Egoiste Platinum, Tom Ford for Men
If he likes Oriental perfumes…
He is introspective and mysterious. Filled with spicy and woody notes, oriental fragrances are often dark, moody and challenging – not unlike the men who wear them. Men who pick these scents tend to keep their cards close to their chest and take a while to open up to new people. But if you successfully pique his interest, you may discover that under all those layers lies an idealistic and sensitive soul.
On his shelf: Calvin Klein Obsession, Chanel Allure Homme, Thierry Mugler A*Men, Burberry Brit for Men
