What Your Perfume Says about You – you may be surprised… but it speaks volumes and is very telling!
Like your clothes, your favourite tipple, the music you listen to or the books you read, your choice of fragrance says a lot about the type of person you are.
It’s almost impossible to pick a fragrance without it being a reflection of your life experience, or one that does not contain certain aspects of your personality.
You may have heard the phrase “you are what you eat”, well we here at PAIRFUM London believe that “You are what you wear” – in regards to Perfume that is…It is also the reason why !!
Before PAIRFUM London creates a ‘Perfume’, our Perfumer always has in mind a profile of the type of person, he is creating the fragrance for. It is like a vocation or some may even say a religious calling, to match the fragrance notes to the personality or spirit of the wearer.
When deciding on which Perfume to ‘Wear’ or ‘Buy’, your decision may not be as random or simple as you think….
Numerous studies, and countless hours over the the last 30 years have been spent on researching the effects of the sense of smell and taste on human emotion, mood, behaviour, and related disease.
From researchers conducting personality tests on subjects, and then comparing them with the results of tests carried out on participants who took part in a study of ‘fragrance and flavor preferences’. With one researcher describing the tests as a ‘Rorschach’ test but using odour.
How? you may ask could a ‘Personality’ test and your ‘Fragrance’ preferences be related?
Research into why we chose one particular aroma over another, has fascinated scientists and researchers for decades.
It stands to reason that we will obviously have a better understanding of someone, if you know their likes and dislikes. If this is the case, then it must also stand to reason why, ‘Understanding’ ourselves and our ‘Personalities’ would help us make more informed decisions.
This relates to every aspect of our lives, relationships, decision making, work, rest and play…
