Let your fragrance speak for you


“A fragrance is like a cat burglar in your brain, it has the key with which to pick the lock and unleash your memories,” according to renowned perfumer, Roja Dove. There is a whole science based on fragrances and the people who wear them. Many studies have shown the relationship between a person’s mood, personality and certain fragrances/ingredients. 

Choosing a fragrance is more than an excursion of sniffing and smelling in your favourite fragrance stores, it almost compares to deciding on an identity. Since there is so much your fragrance says about you, it is only fitting that you know what your fragrance communicates per time.We explored four categories of fragrances, found exclusively at Montaigne Place Stores,and what they stand for to help you decide on what to wear any day.

Woody Fragrances: These types of fragrance are often warm and earthy; they project you as high-achieving and ambitious. When you’ve got a big day/challenge and you want to communicate your drive and ingenuity, these fragrances are the perfect resort. Many times, they remind you of scents associated with cedar, sandalwood, or patchouli. Some luxury fragrances that match this type of scent include Oud by Spirit of Dubai, Golden Oud by Alexandre J and So Elixir Purple by Yves Rocher.

Fruity Fragrances: Fruity fragrances are for individuals who want to come across as young and energetic at heart – wearing them says you are fun, spirited and lively. Fruity scents allow you communicate your active nature effortlessly. Zeste d’Or by Evody and L’Arbre de la Connaissance by Jovoy are some examples of fruity fragrances.

Oriental Fragrances: These fragrances are for exotic individuals who enjoy being bold. Wearing oriental fragrances speak of your unique personality and warm sensuality. Wear an oriental scent when you want to make a statement yet come across as exotic and striking. Some ideas of oriental fragrances include Noir Patchouli by Histoire des Parfums and Narjesi by the Spirit of Dubai.

Spicy Fragrances: Spicy scents uplift and reinvigorate you, giving a refreshing feeling. The fragrance says a lot about your disposition to new and innovative experiences. Craving something mysterious and exotic? Embrace your spicy side of life with Rebel by Franck Boclet and Hora Fugit by Atelier Flou.
