The single girl’s guide to perfume

By Lauren Carbran

Single girls, listen up! Perfumes are like guys – they tempt us, make us happy – but the perfect ones are hard to find. And luckily, you have us to help you. So here’s everything you need to know about perfume (just call us your Cupid)…

11. Be on the lookout for perfume like it’s a guy search

You heard us. Pick perfume as if it’s a boyfriend. Why, we hear you ask? Well, nothing beats finding your perfume match. The first step? Knowing your perfume taste. Do you like sweet and sugary smells (if so, you may be a gourmand fan and like Thierry Mugler Angel Muse) or hints of vanilla (oriental scents like Marc Jacobs Divine Decadence)? Once you’ve narrowed down your search, compare the scent notes. Do you want to smell like vanilla with rose, or cinnamon with black pepper? Then it’s all about how the perfume would fit into your life. If you can see yourself wearing it on your next date, or for lunch with friends, it’s the right one for you. Just think of your scent quest like a Take Me Out episode (but without the cheesy chat-up lines). Trust us, you’ll want to introduce your new perfume to your pals asap!

Newsflash: you’re not fully dressed without your perfume, so next time you go out on the town, keep it with you at all times. Perfume can help you attract a partner, so make sure that cute guy at the bar gets a whiff of something sophisticated, like Hugo Boss Boss The Scent For Her, which blends honeyed peach and cocoa. He’ll want to find out more, we promise…

23. Treat yourself (because your imaginary boyf won’t)

Sorry, but it’s true. If there’s no guy with roses, presents and chocolates standing at your door right now, then who else is going to treat you to perfume? So start spending some quality you-time and head to the shops! Try a new launch like Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Shimmer, a gorge blend of orange blossom and hazelnut, or Coach The Fragrance – we love the duo of guava and mimosa. Lush! Nothing will make you happier, we swear. Now, that definitely beats a boyf…
