Beauty Spotlight: Should You Stick to a Signature Scent?

Beauty Spotlight: Should You Stick to a Signature Scent?

A signature scent is often associated with its wearer. People can easily remember you through that particular aroma. Sticking to one, however, comes with its fair share of cons (for instance, your scent may come off as boring or worse, inappropriate). What’s more, finding one may be challenging given the sheer number of scents available in the market.

Scents are created with different formulations to suit different people, styles, personalities, lifestyles, and occasions.

For the women of today, specifically multi-hyphenates, sticking to one scent to match their various roles and activities may prove to be difficult; some scents may be too intense for casual days, or too saccharine sweet for date night.

So, instead of sticking to one scent, why not pick a top note (e.g. citrusy, summery, woody, spicy, or floral) that suits you the most? From there, find such fragrances with different middle and base notes. This way, the essence or idea of having a signature scent is there, but you’re not necessarily using just one scent. 


A good and affordable collection to choose signature scents from is the Blackwater Women Activ Body Spray line. It has four floral-fruity options (So Pink, So In Love, So Nice, and So Kind), which you may use alternately. They each have a distinct fresh, feminine, and long-lasting aroma that’s suitable for everyday use, sporty activities, or even special occasions.

Not only do you keep your style and aura exciting and unpredictable, you also get to exude different personas.

Blackwater Women Activ Body Spray is available nationwide at all leading department stores, groceries, and convenience stores for only P120 per 100 mL bottle.
