The lady-like and polished scent lover is someone who is always put together, she is always confident and likes to be in charge. This kind of scent lover seems to flock towards scents that have hints of jasmine, peony and friendly floral like notes to them. A few of my favorites are: Stella by Stella McCartney, Prada Candy Florale, and Estée Lauder Modern Muse.

For the Ultra-Glam scent lover this is someone who channels her inner J.LO and Beyonce daily, she like diamonds over pearls and loves to be the center of the universe. The Glam Scent lover tends to be someone who flocks towards scents that contain vanilla, light musk and mandarin notes. A few of my favorites are: Michael Kors Rose Radiant Gold*, Elizabeth Arden Always Red*, Gucci Première, Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Rose*  and Givenchy Dahlia Divin.

For the trendsetter we know and love, this person ends to be someone who always ahead of the trends and knows the latest and greatest before they hit stores. They tend to be the kind of person who flocks towards scents that bold and fresh. The trendsetter is someone who loves notes of cashmere, leather, caramel and musk. A few of my favorites are: TOM FORD Black Orchid, CHANEL Coco Noir, and Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium.

For the free spirit will all know who loves to do their own thing, run in their own world, and jam to their own tune is often obsessed with light and airy notes. The free spirit tends to be someone who flocks to notes of crisp apple, white rose, patchouli  and citrus hints. A few of my favorites are: Dolce +Gabbana Light Blue, Jessica Simpson TEN*, Burberry My Burberry,  and Marc Jacobs Daisy.
