I recently had the pleasure of attending a bloggers event and checking out the latest products to hit the shelves at Target – designer fragrances.
I love perfume and am always on the lookout for a new scent to add to my collection. Very rarely do I have the time to pop in to a shop to specifically try out new fragrances, so I was super excited to find out that Target will have trained staff available, to help me out next time I’m in store doing my shopping.
I was even more excited to find out they’ll be stocking all the top fragrances at up to 40% off RRP.
When shopping for perfume, did you know there are four fragrance families – Floral, Oriental, Woody and Fresh?
I always have trouble deciding on which new fragrance to buy for myself let alone anyone else, but now there’s an easy way to remember.
When thinking about which fragrance family would suit a particular person, just think about the gorgeous girls from ‘Sex and the City’.
Based on their personality types, Charlotte is floral, Carrie is fresh, Samantha is woody and Miranda is oriental.
WARNING: If using this measure, just make sure you don’t offend someone by getting them a woody (Samantha) scent, when they see themselves as more of a floral (Charlotte) – awkward!
I decided to test this theory by finding out which family my three favourite fragrances belong too. Suddenly I’m feeling very nervous :O
Chloe by Chloe (Floral – Charlotte), Daisy – Marc Jacobs (Floral – Charlotte), Princess by Vera Wang (Floral Oriental – Charlotte/Miranda)
And here I was thinking I was more of a super cool Carrie 😉
If you would like to learn more about the fragrance families, check out Michael Edwards’ fragrance wheel and see which ‘Sex and the City’ girl you are.
