Trend Alert: Fragrance Wardrobing
For years it felt as though we had to find a signature scent and commit to it—spritzing it on each and every morning and for each and every event, even if it didn’t really match our mood. But, who says you have to commit to just one fragrance for the rest of your life? Enter: fragrance wardrobing. Gone are the days of signature scents and here are the days of curating a collection of aromas that can correspond with how you feel that very day. Below we share more about this growing trend and give you a few pointers for building your very own fragrance wardrobe!
What Is Fragrance Wardrobing?
Do you wear the same shoes and accessories with every outfit? Of course not! Think of fragrance wardrobing the same way you do about curating your closet. Fragrance wardrobing allows you to select a scent based on your mood and who you want to portray to the world that day. Instead of investing in just one perfume or scented spray that you wear day in and day out, you’ll build a collection of aromas that you can pull from to complement everything from your outfit to your personality that day.
How to Build Your Fragrance Wardrobe
One of the best ways to embrace fragrance wardrobing in your routine is by picking a portfolio of scents from a specific brand. Start with a base—yes, that go-to scent that you’d wear the same way you’d put on your favorite t-shirt and jeans—and then grow out from there. Try selecting a few scents with different profiles, something fruity for everyday and something sultry for romantic date nights.
Lancôme’s collection of Maison Lancôme Eau de Parfums makes it a breeze to create a fragrance wardrobe. As an homage of Lancôme’s founder—perfumer Arman Petitjean—the six scents are all united by the French art of blending.
