What Fragrance Personality is Your Man?

Fragrances can often reflect our mood and personality.  They react differently according to our own chemical makeup, bodies, and age.  To determine if a fragrance suits your chemical makeup, test it on your bicep because this constantly-working muscle will quickly warm up the fragrance and mix it with your body’s own natural scent.  Allow one hour for the fragrance to mature on your skin.

Several factors influence how a fragrance interacts with our own physiology and affects our perception of that fragrance.  These factors include our metabolism, our diet (eating spicy and fatty food increases a fragrance’s intensity), illness, use of medication (which impacts a fragrance’s character), and our skin type (dry skin does not hold fragrance as long).  Fragrances are more intense on oily skin.  A good general rule of thumb is to change your fragrance depending upon the season.  Go for lighter scents during the warmer weather and stronger scents during the drier, cooler weather.  Fragrance needs to be stronger in the winter to be noticeable because less skin is exposed at that time of year.

It is important to keep the cologne bottle in its original box; the notes can change if you use different packaging.  Cologne is comprised of three levels of “notes,” or fragrances.  The top notes are those that you smell immediately and are most noticeable within 15 minutes of applying.  The middle notes emerge after 10 or 15 minutes and reach their peak after 3 or 4 hours.  The deeper, bottom notes last the longest and can linger on the skin from 45 minutes to 8 hours or longer.

Masculine scents tend to be dry (non-sweet) and fresh, while feminine scents tend to be sweet, sensual, and warm.  In Michael Edwards’ Fragrance Wheel, there are 4 families of notes:

  • Floral ~ predominantly feminine
  • Oriental ~ predominantly feminine
  • Woody ~ predominantly masculine
  • Fresh ~ predominantly masculine

Men’s Fragrance Personalities

When choosing a cologne for your man, try to match the scent to his personality:

  • Confident/Wise ~ Fresh scents
  • Sexy/Adventurous ~ Woody scents
  • Easygoing/Fun ~ Woody scents
  • Sensitive/Shy ~ Woody scents

Fresh scents have universal appeal and are light enough to be worn all day long.  Woody scents bring out the sensual nature of the wearer.  BeautiControl’s BC Man Cologne (18766) is clean, fresh, and modern with a subtle, woody warmth.  Top notes of citrus, pink peppercorns, vetiver, and peppermint, and middle notes of grapefruit, jasmine, nutmeg, cedarwood, and rockrose, balance perfectly with bottom notes of ginger, patchouli, sandalwood, and moss.  It has a concentrated formula for long-lasting fragrance.
