Why You May Not Smell Your Best

Okay, so I was asked recently what I would call my “scent”

As someone who ends up in the gym 6 days a week, my immediate thought was the smell of my deodorant (it’s a great smell, really! Fresh and clean). My second thought was the set of perfume I have from Skylar Body that they were awesome enough to send me to test out.

But neither of those were what I could really call my own.

The place I was asked this question just so happened to be a niche perfumery called The Scent Room 

The owner, Deborah, is all about expressing your personality through scent. It’s personally something I never gave a ton of thought to, which is crazy because smell is the sense that is most closely linked to memory.

Have you ever smelled something and were immediately transported into a memory of a different time in your life, or of a specific person?
It’s the power of scent!

So naturally, I had to find my scent. duh.

SO I went on a “scent journey”. All of the perfumes are hand-picked by the owner to display in the shop. They are from exclusive lines that are typically extremely hard to find. Every scent has a story behind it, and I got to hear all about them from the owner, Deborah. She was incredible in helping me find which scents I loved the most and explaining exactly what my nose was smelling.

If you’re like me, and you never really thought past “mm that smells pretty nice”, you should definitely find a perfumery near you to really find your scent.

What scent do you want people to remember you by?
