How To Choose The Right Scent

A fragrance speaks volumes of the wearer, hence the need to pick one that suits. The market is vast and contains something for everyone, but these eight will have something for most requirements. And to help you find the right type of fragrance for you, we’ve split them up by where you might want to wear them. Browse the categories and choose the one that suits your nose…

Woody Fragrances

You can trust Coach We give honest reviews and recommendations based on in-depth knowledge and real-world experience. Find out more about how we review and recommend products.

These dark fragrances are good for evening wear and work well during the winter. Plus, if you’re sipping mulled wine and lurking beneath mistletoe, you’ll need a strong scent to overcome the smell “noise” all around you.

Spicy Fragrances

If you’re an extrovert and want to be noticed, herby and spicy smells are the ones for you. They work for nights out, but might be too strong for daily office wear – save it for when you’re supposed to be being “charming” and “sexy” in a “disco”.

Fresh Fragrances

Spring and summer fit fresh, green scents with herbaceous notes and if you’re feeling fruity, some flowery embellishment. Wear in the day, but make sure you don’t overdo it, unless you want to go to work smelling like a garden centre.

Citrus Fragrances

Citrus works great for an everyday work situation – orange, grapefruit, lemon – it all works together to perk you up, and won’t be too overpowering for your colleagues. They’re a great pick-me-up for the morning, and post-workout, too.
