The fragrance we use reveals a lot about us… Including the age! So, watch out! Some fragrances are ageing, and some make us seem younger. So how to make choosing easier?
Deciding how to smell can be a difficult process. Too sweet or too daring, sensual, fresh… Just like your clothes, you want to send out a clear message about yourself.
That’s why, although there are no set rules, there are some ingredients and combinations of ingredients more suitable for certain ages.
Scents of ages
Generally, sweet, fruity fragrances are good for teens. That’s why lavender, lily, violet and tropical fruits like coconut and mango express the simplicity and innocence of youth.
Once we reach our twenties, scents like orange, grapefruit, bergamot, and lime are the clean-smelling, mood-lifting fragrances of choice. Touches of vanilla or caramel make of the fragrance a combination full of contrasts typical of this decade.
In our thirties, we start adding floral chords. Jasmine, rose, and orange blossom are synonymous with femininity and add an air of sophistication to your fragrance wardrobe.
In our forties and fifties, we find our signature perfumes. At this time of life, we opt for stronger aromas: woody, with musk, with the oriental nuances of ylang ylang or sandalwood, and spicy touches of clove and pink pepper….
Then, in their sixties, many women go for complex, intensive fragrances, a way of underlining their maturity and making their presence known in a space. Amber, patchouli, labdanum and vetiver are ingredients blended in classic, timeless fragrances.
Your perfume has an age, does it match yours? Now you know.
