What Your Fragrance Says About You

12 May 2016

Timeless beauty icon Marilyn Monroe once said, "there are no women who do not like perfume, there are women who have not found their scent". In a world filled with scents, perfumes, aromas and whiffs, it's time to find your special smell. Here, what these 5 popular fragrances say about you. 


Zesty, fresh and filled with fruits like orange and lime, a citrus fragrance is for a woman who knows how to have a good time. While some may dread an early start, you wake up each morning ready to make the most of your day ahead. Positive-minded, vivacious and without fear of new experiences, you're the sunshine that we could all use a bit of in our lives. You're confident, your natural beauty emanates from inside-out and simply, you cherish festivities. Need the right citrus scent? Attracting the likes of A-listers Victoria Beckham and Sienna Miller, Jo Malone's signature fragrance 'Lime Basil and Mandarin' is just perfect for your passionate self.

Jo Malone's Favourite Fragrances: Lime Basil & Mandarin, Grapefruit, Earl Grey & Cucumber.


Sweet, flirty and outgoing, you put the flavour in fun. Berry goodness, apples, peaches and pears, you're sociable, easy to love and always ready to rock the party since your light-hearted nature never stops you from having a good time. Yes, when life hands you lemons - you're making lemon juice...or in your case, probably wearing a bit of it. You're the free-spirited optimist, who's always searching for a silver lining. Like your fragrance, you like to keep things berry calm and your life juicy and filled with adventure. And of course, you find bliss in all things pink (or just red wine for that matter).

Jo Malone's Favourite Fragrances: Pomegranate Noir, English Pear & Freesia, Blackberry & Bay, Nectarine Blossom & Honey.


You my dear, are quite the darling. Putting the power down to a flower, you prove the sweet embrace in the lives of those you cherish. Gracefully feminine, rational and wise beyond your years, you're always willing to help and your affection radiates like an orchid in full bloom. Pastel colours are popular in your closet and while your taste may be considered more conservative, you're quite the alluring character. Humble, devoted and a fan of the classics, it's no wonder you can't keep away from lavender, roses, violets, chrysanthemum and basically every other beautiful flower.

Jo Malone's Favourite Fragrances: Orange Blossom, Peony & Blush Suede, Blue Agavo & Cacao, Mimosa & Cardamom.


You ditch the early starts because the nighttime is when you're at your peak. Bold, confident about your sexuality and often unpredictable, you certainly know how to keep things interesting. Even though you strive to spice it all up, you're still a very affectionate and benevolent person, which it's what makes you so unique. Your open mind and willingness to freely discuss matters that others would shy away from, is mainly why your closest friends and family always feel comfortable and safe around you. Due to your captivatingly-manifold nature, scents like ginger, cloves, vanilla and cinnamon most appeal to you.

Jo Malone's Favourite Fragrances: Nutmeg & Ginger, Amber & Lavender.


Determined, strong-minded and with true conviction, you stand tall and proud of who you are. It's rare to see you ever following the latest trend or using slang, because without effort, you are a natural leader. Independent, a minimalist and subtly smooth, you hold a certain enchantment which people find hard to ignore. After the way you walk, we're bound to find statement pieces and clean cuts in your wardrobe. Without realisation, you're a true individual whose poise and passion is uniquely stunning.

Jo Malone's Favourite Fragrances: Wood Sage & Sea Salt, 154.
