    Default Do your fragrances match your personality?

    As the title says, I'm wondering how you guys see it - do you wear fragrances that reflect some aspects of yourself, and/or do you use it as a "costume", something that contradicts how you're perceived?

    Being a blonde, petite, quite mild-mannered type myself, I sometimes find it very liberating to wear something loud and oriental and strong as hell for example. It throws people off.

    Can anyone get away with anything, or does perfume have to match the personality of the person wearing it? What do you think?
    Currently wearing: Himalaya by Creed

    I personally don't think that fragrance has to match one's personality, but I find in my case, whatever I choose to wear enhances my personality
    as to what I represent to others and how I interact with others in my company.

    I'd have to have multiple personalities if my fragrances were to match them. I just like the way they smell.

    I have to agree about enhancing your personality. I just don't have one definitive fragrance for all my pursuits whether be it at work, recreational or family gatherings. I do like my fragrances loud and complex at times and then sometimes subtle and streamlined. I vary so much I must have multiple personality traits.

    No, I usually match by mood my mood...whatever I'm feeling that day. Might be effected by weather or where I'm headed later on, just depends.

    I wouldn't say personality per se , but more of mood enhancer at best...like if today I feel like being a sexy beast I do DHI and if tomorrow I feel like a galant macho , I do Aventus....but my personality is intact in all sequences, as I have friendly and outgoing disposition and my demeanor is bright and light in the morning as in the afternoon and this is my attitude with all scents that I chose to wearin a specific day ...the only difference is I'm more go lucky if I'm enjoying the scent as well.....LOOK, a grouchy person will be grouchy regardless, as it's AN Internal issue not external issue needed to be address.....peace and GodBless

    I agree with Rynegne. The fragrance I'm wearing usually matches my mood.

    There's a recent fairly similar discussion on this thread, Izzie - I tend to agree with Kagey!

    I'd like my fragrances to match my ideal persona, which is some sort of contemporary medieval bard, but I'm having trouble getting that together on both ends.

    No- Most of the time my frag matches the weather..
    Being in Chicago I will not wear VIW right now..
    Neither would I wear Pure Malt in the summer heat- well- maybe 3 sprays instead of 6
