A fragrance has to match your personality. Find your perfect scent, then cross match with your “type” to find the perfect fragrance selection for you.
Our beauty expert Roja Dove dishes out his top secrets to finding that great scent…
You’re so feminine
You love soft clothes with feminine detail that move with you. You’re wonderfully curvy and it suits you. For evening you slip easily into that gorgeously curvaceous Old Hollywood glamour. You love the look of Catherine Zeta-Jones and Halle Berry. Right now you may be wearing Black Opium by YSL, R1 245 for 50ml or Very Irresistible by Givenchy, R1 405 for 50ml.
You love the new
You’re into yoga, Pilates and love casual/sporty/yoga clothes with a label. You adore everything New Age but can turn on the smarts and dress to the hilt when you need to. Regardless of your age you connect with Madonna or Gwyneth Paltrow. You might be wearing Stella by Stella McCartney, R1 105 for 50ml or Touch of Pink by Lacoste, R1 265 for 90ml.
You dress casually by day and really turn it on at night. You mix easily with men/women half or twice your age. You’re sexy but your brain is on show as much as your sexuality. You’re so like Susan Sarandon or Meryl Streep. Your current spritz? Perhaps First by Van Cleef and Arpels, R925 for 60ml or Omnia by Bvlagari, R1 220 for 40ml.
You’re unashamedly sexy
With clothes that are on the close cut side. You don’t get older, you get bolder. Your shoes are high, your make-up is perfect and you love the beauty salon. You thank Kim Cattrall for making the older woman a sexy icon. Currently, you could be into Shalimar by Guerlain, R605 for 30ml or Provocative Woman by Elizabeth Arden R615 for 100ml.
