Picking a fragrance for you or someone else can be tricky. You want it to perfectly capture the essence of the person who will wear it. Furthermore, you want the fragrance to smell amazing to everyone who will come into contact with you.
There are some basic things to consider when selecting a fragrance such as: The personality of the person, their taste in food, their favourited smells and music preferences. Considering all of these things we present you today the ten most wearable fragrances suitable for everyone:
Rolling in Love by Kilian
Rolling in Love is a musc de peau, capturing the sensation of feeling so high on love that it seems to almost “get under the skin”. Working with perfumer Pascal Gaurin, Kilian Hennessy took an entirely new direction. Rolling in Love is more direct and less faceted than his previous fragrances—almost “monochromatic” in its focused representation of a single emotion. Rolling in Love is a “white” scent, layering different textures along the scent’s trail with notes of ambrette seeds, almond milk, iris, and musk.
