What's Your Fragrance Personality?
Pick the perfect signature scent for you (or someone else!) with help from this smart, gift-finding quiz
Picking a signature fragrance -- for you or someone else -- can be tricky. You want the fragrance you choose to perfectly capture the essence of the person who will wear it. Plus you want the fragrance to smell amazing -- to mostly everyone who will come into contact with you or the person you're buying it for.
There are some basic things to consider when selecting a fragrance. They include the personality of the person it's for, their taste in food, their favorite smells, and even their movie and music preferences. Considering all of these things while being overwhelmed by multiple fragrances at a department store counter or at stores like Sephora and Ulta is nearly impossible. It's stimulation overload. That's where this quiz comes in.
Answer these eight simple questions to help you narrow down your fragrance choices (for both men and women) and find out which perfumes or colognes best go with your or your lucky gift recipients personality -- before you even step foot in a store. Just click Find a scent and answer the questions as accurately as you possibly can! (P.S. If you don't know an answer, pick the one you think fits best.)
The best scent for this romantic, sensitive and sweet personality would be a bouquet of complementary florals, sure to woo even the most fickle of noses. Look for familiar notes like magnolia, jasmine, rose and lily. For the more fresh-minded, keep it light with a hint of lavender or a fresh, herbal top note. For those with a hidden sultry side, pick up a fragrance with a bottom note of amber, wood, musk or vanilla.
