About This Quiz

Marilyn Monroe always wore Floris Rose Geranium. Princess Kate usually wears Orange Blossom by Jo Malone. Chris Hemsworth is addicted to Boss by Hugo Boss. Why do celebrities choose to have signature scents like this? Well, because it's fun! Perfumes, colognes and other fragrances are just another way to express yourself ... almost like an invisible form of fashion. Wearing a signature scent can be a new way to tell people who you are, without having to say a single word.

Are you intrigued yet? Good, because it's time to ask the million-dollar question: What should your signature scent be? Well, that depends on the personal qualities that you want to convey to others. For instance, if you're a wallflower, you probably don't want a loud, rose-heavy perfume. Similarly, a club-going guy is likely not going to be interested in a delicate little confection of violets and vanilla.

To sort out which scent you should make your own, we've come up with a personality quiz that's designed to sniff out (sorry!) the perfume or cologne that's right for you. Tell us about your personal style, self-care rituals and favorite music, and we'll tell you which scent will be scent-sational on you! 🌹 Ready to learn more? Let's get quizzing!
