Fragrance Inspirations: What makes you want to try a new fragrance?

 

Re: Fragrance Inspirations: What makes you want to try a new fragrance?

Honestly, the appearance of the bottle is what makes me want to try a perfume lol.  I love beautifully designed bottles that I can display on my dresser and have been known to not purchase a nice-smelling perfume because the bottle was ugly--silly as it sounds.  I will also want to try any fragrance with oriental notes because I am drawn to sweet (but not overly), rich scents.  

Re: Fragrance Inspirations: What makes you want to try a new fragrance?

I find that wearing perfume -- or body mist, scented lotions, and the like -- is like role playing. Somedays I feel like being a flirtatious, young, and fresh girl, so I give myself a little spritz of Justin Bieber's Someday perfume. Or, maybe I feel seductive and modern and choose to mist myself with Victoria's Secret's Gorgeous perfume.  The sentiment that with different scents I nearly become a different being draws me to wanting to try new fragrances.

Re: Fragrance Inspirations: What makes you want to try a new fragrance?

I totally agree with brookithewooki. I choose the perfume I'm going to wear  based on the kind of persona I want to have that day. It sounds a bit silly, but I think many of us do that. Like whenever I feel bold and edgy I always wear some Kat Von D. Maybe it's just a mood thing, or wanting to highlight certain aspects of our personality with certain fragrances.

 

Also, I am always eager to try a new fragrance if I know it has jasmine in it. One type is native to Pakistan -- where my family is from -- and my parents have kept jasmines in our front yard for as long as I can remember, so I guess I have a bit of a sentimental attachment to that scent.

What makes me want to try a new fragrance?

I love variety since the fragrance I choose depends on my mood.

 

I wish Sephora had those little fragrance plastic sample containers as Nordstrom carries.

 

No matter how lovely something smells in the bottle, it has the tendency to change on me sometimes & the scent is not for me.

Re: Fragrance Inspirations: What makes you want to try a new fragrance?

I will try a new fragrance if there's a sample with an info. card sent to me. This allows me to try it on with my go-to lotion to see how it reacts with my chemistry. This should be a VIB and Rouge free perk since we spend so much in Sephora. We are also active members on BT and probably have blogs to promote the perfume brand. 

Re: Fragrance Inspirations: What makes you want to try a new fragrance?

I want to try a new fragrance when it reminds me of something I like and has good memories for me.  For example, I went to Florida this past April and when I saw Beach Walk, I knew I had to have it!  I also love Clean Rain because it does remind me of storms, so that will be my next scent purchase once I finish my rollerballs.

Re: Fragrance Inspirations: What makes you want to try a new fragrance?

I find with different stages in my life I look for different scents to match  mood or personality .

ex. Junior high I wore a lot of bath and body stuff because I got it as gifts from family friends

ex. High school  I wore A lot of Victoria secret lotion and body sprays because it was affordable 

ex. College I wore A lot of fruity scents ex Be delicious, escada, juicy couture

 

Now I'm into more sophisticated scents ex. Flower bomb,  florabotanica, lightblue

 

Re: Fragrance Inspirations: What makes you want to try a new fragrance?

I'm drawn to sweet and vanilla scents and wear those often. I've also been hunting for a fragrance that smells like Yankee Candle's Pink Sands candle. Love that scent and want to find a wearable version of it. Haven't had much luck so far.

Re: Fragrance Inspirations: What makes you want to try a new fragrance?

I like fragrances that are slightly masculine (or what one could consider masculine undertones).

A really elegant princessy bottle will get me everytime!  

Samples are my number one downfall when it comes t buying.  If the bottle is beautiful on top if nice smelling it will be mine! 

Re: Fragrance Inspirations: What makes you want to try a new fragrance?

Samples.  If I get them, I try them.  Also pretty bottles and an intriguing description or concept.  Fragrance really is a marketing driven product…so much competition and unlike with makeup, you don't just fall in love with the colors.
