Which Fall Fragrance Suits Your Personality?

For most of us, choosing a perfume is as simple as "it smells good" (or, real talk -- by which bottle will look prettiest on our vanity). But Mark Crames, the CEO of the all-encompassing fragrance library Demeter, and Jacquelyn Lang, CEO of Beauty Encounter, say our choices go far beyond that. You may actually choose a fragrance based on a memory you associate with scent, a particular time of the year, or what may be most telling, certain notes that are reflective of your personality. "Over the years, I've seen personalities gravitate to the same notes," says Lang. "A scent certainly can be an extension of one's personality." Whether you're bold or reserved, a romantic or a realist, adventurous or a wallflower, there's a new fall scent to match your personality. Here, the fall fragrances sure to become your signature scent.   read more
