What a scent can add to your outfit or day
Some weeks ago while talking to my sister, she told me she tends to wear the fragrance I gave her for leisure time, Guerlain Jasminora, for work, to add a bit more softness especially when having difficult meetings with clients. She works at human resources so her meeting involve hard meetings with people from time to time.
I had found this phenomenon before myself, as I tend to wear tropical floral fragrances like Guerlain Terracotta Le Parfum or Madonna Truth or Dare during summer when it was raining outside. You would expect Terracotta or Truth or Dare to be more suited for hot weather but I like to add tropical warmth or sunshine with these fragrances and add a holiday sensation by wearing these.
You could try it for yourself, wear a really summery fragrance in another season, a very expensive smelling fragrance while going to the supermarket, an informal fragrance to a very formal occasion to feel more relaxed or a very glamorous scent while not dressing that way at all.
Chanel Bois des Iles is the fragrance I tend to wear when I want to add to glamour and richness to my outfit or Chanel 31 Rue Cambon when I want to feel I am dressing formally, like wearing a beautiful feminine tailored suit.
Do you wear your fragrances contrary to weather, occasion or outfit ? Tell us more about it !

Hi Cristina, Welcome to my website ! It is hard for me to have an idea what scent you like. I would start with THE fragrances you have or had. Go to THE fragrantica website and see what fragrance family they are in. Then click on THE fragrance family to your right and see other perfumes. This is a start.
It would also be good to know what you mean by warm ? What kind of perfumes notes are those ? Look at perfumes you like to determine That further.
I Will write more about this so keep an eye on my website THE coming months.
