Using the best perfume is a great way to self-express. But which one is the best? Depending on how you see yourself, your perfume choice will only say so much or so little.
Are you flirty, passionate, bold, adventurous, classic?
Or are you playful, athletic, or intellectual?
The perfume you wear is a window into your personality. Wear the right fragrance, and it can amp-up your confidence tenfold.
As we all get healthier and make cleaner choices about the products we use — from soap to shampoo, makeup to hand sanitizer, is your perfume passing the sniff test?
Pro-tip: avoid alcohol-based fragrances as much as possible and invest in organic roll-on perfumes. Because what you put on your skin always ends up in your body!
Choosing Fragrances: The Basics of Fragrance Blending
To choose the best perfume for yourself, you need to know a bit about fragrance blending. The goal of fragrance blending is to have a three-part life cycle with three distinct notes:
You cannot smell these notes all at once, only in succession.
The top note is the initial scent of any perfume that stays fragrant for about two hours post the application. You can expect citrus, floral, and fruity scents from this note.
The medium note, also known as the heart note, becomes prominent after the top note fades away. For the most part, it consists of heavy floral scents, but you may also find fruity aromas here.
The note that develops last is the base note. This is the foundation of your fragrance. How long-lasting the scent is going to be is determined by this note.
Smoke, sandalwood, vanilla, and moss are the familiar base note scents.
Are Expensive Perfumes Worth It?
What makes a perfume luxe or mid-price is not always the ingredients. So what goes into the cost of your fragrance?
Marketing makes up the majority of a perfume’s price point. The packaging is the next largest cost. The fragrance is the most nominal cost unless the ingredients are rare or in very high ratios.
Since most perfume contains over 95% alcohol, in the end, you might as well buy yourself a nice bottle of vodka. Remember that an expensive bottle of perfume does not always mean a better quality fragrance.
When you pick indie brands like ADORAtherapy, you’re more likely to get more value for your money.
Let's take our aromatherapy perfume oils. In their case, 50% of the cost is in packaging and marketing. The other 50% is in our premium ingredients: Organic jojoba oil and essential oils.
We do not use any synthetics, chemicals, or alcohol. And we disclose our fragrance ingredients. Sounds great, right? Smells great too!

Whatever the occasion, smelling great is a confidence booster. We all want scents that take us from a workout to the office or from zoom meetings to a romantic dinner.

With functional fragrance, you get so much more than a scent. You get a mood boost when you wear a scent designed not to cover up. But to lift and shift how you feel in each moment.
