A Guide to Choosing the Best Fragrance to Suit Your Personality Type (and Giveaway)

sex in the city2

There are very few of us, I suspect, that have ever watched an episode of Sex in the City without identifying with one of the four main characters at some point or other. (I myself swing between thinking I am Carrie or Samantha!)
Many of us may have already heard whisper that the characters of Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha, represent each of the four personality types. What you may not know though, is that fragrances are also divided into four families; floral, fresh, woody and oriental, and knowing your personality type can help you buy the best fragrance to suit your personality. It is also a great way to help you decide on a fragrance for a friend or relative.

So, in all my infinite wisdom (huh hmm) I have devised this handy little guide so you can determine which fragrance suits you best.
You’re welcome!

Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
