How to Find the Right Scent for your Personality
With literally thousands of individual fragrance notes to choose from, the process of selecting a new scent can sometimes seem daunting. There are various ways to approach this olfactory challenge: you might choose a fragrance that matches the season or one that enhances the atmosphere you hope to create. Or, you could look for a scent that speaks to your very personality, one that reflects your hobbies and interests.

YOU’RE A NATURAL BORN LEADER
Studies have shown that ambitious people, the so-called type-A personalities, gravitate towards citrus scents, which are themselves naturally strong and uplifting. Citrus Petals is ideal for this type of person, as it’s made with both grapefruit and red currant for a zesty effect, as well as beautiful honeysuckle and guava, another feel good scent.
YOU CULTIVATE AN AIR OF MYSTERY
Used in the Middle East for centuries, oud oil is derived from precious agarwood, and is distinguished by a rich, almost animalistic scent. Although now widely found in the west, oud still has a heady, exotic air that lends a slightly mysterious quality to those who surround themselves with it. I describe "My Oud“an exquisite, rare scent, perfect for those who keep their cards close to their chests”.
YOU DON’T RUSH INTO THINGS
If you believe in taking a slow and steady path, and hate rushing into things without proper reflection, a rose-based scent is right for you. Research tells us that people who love rose are more considered and less likely to throw caution to the wind. If this sounds like you, Rosy Fig – with its delicate notes of rose and fig – could be your perfect match.”
YOU ENJOY THE OUTDOORS
Inhale, and allow the notes of rich conifers of mahogany trees and in the bush transport you immediately to the magnificent forests of Tasmania, home to some of the oldest and tallest trees in the world. “This awe-inspiring destination was the inspiration for Thicket or The C. Leaf.

3 Notes to Create a Relaxing Home
An old wives’ tale has long promised that a few drops of lavender oil sprinkled on a pillowcase is a passport to swift slumber. We don’t dispute the effect but prefer our olfactory calm-down to take a more sophisticated form, namely a moment of mindfulness spent in the company of our favourite fragrance and with the updated version with cannabis essential oils.
Fortunately, lavender or cannabis essential oils aren't the only notes lauded for its ability to help one unwind, as vanilla, sandlewood and jasmine are all known to have a similar effect.
