What Perfume Should You Wear?


It’s true that our nervous system becomes less sensitive to smells the more we get used to them, meaning it’s easy to grow tired of your everyday fragrance. If that doesn’t mean it’s time to treat yourself to a new perfume, what does?! 

But how do you go about choosing a new perfume? At Revolution, we’ve put together a crash course on our fragrance range! A perfume quiz, if you will. Based on your vibe and personality, we’ll help you choose the best fragrance to compliment YOU. Ready to discover your new signature scent?

How to Pick Perfume

So, how do you pick a perfume that you’re actually going to love? We’ve got 3 tips to help you select your new scent. 

1. Know the Fragrance Families

What do your existing perfumes say about you? What fragrance notes to they carry? Are you often drawn to florals? Do you enjoy fruity fragrances? Or do you usually opt for amber or woody notes?  

When it comes to choosing which fragrance is best for you, work out which fragrance family you’re most drawn to and select your new scent based on that. Alternatively, try a perfume that carries completely different notes to your usual choosing – how does it compare? 

2. Don’t Test Too Many Perfumes in One Go

Fragrance shopping can be a little overwhelming. You know the feeling where everything begins smelling the same? 

We recommend testing no more than 3 at a time. Spritz a little of each perfume to different areas of your skin to keep the scents separate and see how each one develops throughout the day. 

3. Trust Your Instinct!

There will always be fragrance trends, but if the latest trending perfume scent doesn’t sit right with your vibe, there’s no point in forcing yourself to wear it! Similar to makeup and clothing, perfume is another way to express yourself, so always go for a scent that you totally resonate with.
