How to Find Your Signature Scent

by Hammer & Nails

When it comes to choosing a cologne or after shave, there’s no one size fits all. Everyone’s signature scent will be unique to them. However, there are a few tips to follow when finding the best scent for you.

Start by thinking about the types of scents you like.

Do you prefer fresh and floral scents, or more musky and woody fragrances? Florals tend to be more feminine and mature, spicy fragrances tend to be warmer and sultrier, woody scents are often earthy and masculine, and fresh perfumes are often citrusy and lighter.

One you have an idea of the type of scent you’re looking for, start testing out different fragrances until you find the one you love.

Perfumes smell differently on everyone, thanks to our unique skin chemistry, so how it smells on a sampler paper won’t necessarily be how it settles into your skin. Try out a few different fragrances and before you purchase a full-sized bottle, use a sampler or a travel-sized bottle and sit with the fragrance for a week or so.

Pay attention to how people react when they smell your signature scent. If they seem to enjoy it, then it’s likely a good choice for you.

It’s impossible to tell for sure whether your perfume is noticeable to someone unless they tell you so. However, if you can smell it, they can probably smell it, and perfume leaves traces everywhere you go. If your fragrance draws a favorable reaction from those around you, and if you love it, there it is. That could be your signature scent.

When it comes to men’s needs, it’s time to think bigger. And bolder. And way more moisturized and exfoliated. It’s time to recognize that men are bigger than biceps and abs. That men’s health is about more than burpees and leg days. Because men have follicles and cuticles, too. And pores. And soles. And palms.
