How to have an affair with your perfume

By Lauren Carbran

Note: we do NOT commend cheating, UNLESS it’s with your perfume! Feeling a little unfaithful to your signature scent? Want to try something new? Don’t worry, it’s totally natural. So here’s how to have a (healthy) affair with your perfume…

11Be a perfume cheater

That’s right – it’s totally fine to get caught cheating when it comes to perfume. Even though you’ll love your signature scent till the end of time, once in a while we approve of cheating. So if you want to change your scent for a big occasion, always trust your instinct. Nothing beats being experimental for the first time and LOVING LIFE! And we’ve got you covered. Job interviews? Reach for Guerlain Mon Guerlain for her or Paco Rabanne 1 Million Privé for him. Beach vacays? Take Escada Fiesta Carioca for her or Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme Summer for him. Black-tie shindigs? Choose Tom Ford Black Orchid for him and her. Your life = sorted.

22Have a one-night perfume stand

You’re probably thinking WTH!? Well, don’t, because if you fancy wearing a different scent for one time only, we’re totally for it. And trust us, it will get heads turning. The perfect perfume to wear as a one-off? A badass scent, like Diesel Bad for him (a blend of lime, caviar and tobacco), or DKNY Be Tempted for her (liquorice, rose and vanilla).

33Don’t forget your one true love

You’ll never be able to fall out of love with your signature scent (if you don’t believe us, try it). Yep, as fun as it is to try new smells, we know you’ll come running back to your long-term lover. Our favourite signature scents? Go fruity with Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Toilette for her (wild strawberries) or spicy with Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male for him (cinnamon and tonka bean).
