Products We Love: A Signature Scent

Scent is the most powerful sense we have.  A whiff of perfume can bring back long lost memories of celebrations, people, or even just one special moment.

Why not preserve the memories of the happiest day of your life with your own signature perfume?  Unique Fragrance gives women the option of creating their own signature scent for their wedding day.  Use it every day, or wear it on your anniversary!  Each spritz will remind you of the happiest day of your life.

Unique Fragrance has a guide to crafting your own custom perfume; but for those new to the delicate art making a fragrance, here are three questions to ponder before you start building your signature scent!

1.)    Are you looking for a masculine or feminine fragrance?

Traditionally masculine fragrances tend to be muskier, spicier, and heavier than feminine fragrances, which tend to be lighter, with softer spices and encompass sweeter florals like gardenia.  However, that doesn’t mean that you’re restricted to a feminine fragrance if you are a woman and a masculine fragrance if you are a man!  Both genders can benefit from the masculine and feminine properties of perfumes and colognes, but when it comes to making your signature wedding scent, you’ll want to make sure you know which type you prefer.

2.)     What are your favorite perfumes?
