Did you Know About the Perfume Trend: Blending Fragrances ?

Published by Eric Lundeen on

Take a look in your wardrobe closet and notice all the different manufacturer labels. A designer shirt (or blouse), a boutique tie (or scarf), a pair of gabardines (or leggings), and a dress pair of footwear. Rarely are all of them the same maker. Yet you enjoy each of them when blended together to create a style. Your style.

Another example of creating style is the recent, ever-increasing trend of blending fragrances. Tired of the same scent you wear every day? You know it’s your favorite and in some ways, it smells like “you.” But you can keep your mainstay and mix a new, fresh scent to compliment it.

I would attest there are eight main fragrance families: floral, sweet, fruity, oriental, spicy, woody, fresh, and citrusy. Most fragrances are a combination of at least two or more of these. Within each of these categories are the multiple notes (similar to “ingredients” as discussed in the previous blog) that compose the fragrance.

For example, in women’s fragrances, Gucci Bamboo by Gucci is fresh, woody and floral; Glam Jasmine by Michael Kors is oriental and floral, and Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana is citrusy and fresh.

As for the men, examples would be Sauvage by Christian Dior is spicy and woody; Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani is fresh and citrusy; and Invictus by Paco Rabanne is fresh, fruity, and woody.

The scents that mix the best are those that resonate with your body chemistry the best. There is no textbook of rules. It would be easy to say two fragrances can mix well. I think blending the fragrance families is a better plan. Experiment with them. Spray your pulse points (wrists and neck). Identifying the multiple scents while being blended is a good indication that it is favorable to your body. Your nose will tell you if it’s not.

So, what’s your new style for 2018? Maybe a new scent—incorporating your fav with a twist—a blended fragrance that’s your style. Explore and you might just be pleasantly surprised.

As always, remember Perfumes 4U is here for you. Designers, boutiques, classics, and new arrivals…we have them in-stock now. Come in and we’ll do some blending. We love to be on top of the style trends right with you!

Thanks for the post. Gucci perfumes are fantabulous and truly amazing. Among all perfumes by Gucci Gucci Bamboo is one of the best. The scent that mix the best are those that resonate with your body chemistry the best.
