If you’re looking for a new fragrance but not sure where to start, look no further than at yourself. Perfumes can kinda be like pets, with their own personality that complements you. That’s why it makes total scents (we had to!) to pair your personality with your perfume. Here, the new and staple fragrances we’re loving, paired with the key parts of your personality.


Not speaking much says way more than streams of uninterrupted speech. You think before speaking, making whatever comes up that much more meaningful. Powdery notes reflect your peaceful essence; mellow notes bring that substance you’re all about.
