Why Wearing Perfume Should be your New Year’s Resolution
If you’re not already a perfume pro, then wearing perfume should be right at the top of the list of your New Year’s resolutions. Here’s why.
It’s part of your personal branding
No matter what your vocation, you have a personal brand. Whether you’re in a corporate workplace, or a stay-at-home parent, a student, or a grandmother, you have a certain style that says something about who you are, and how you see yourself, and informs others of how they should experience you. Perfume is one of the best ways to position your personal branding – you can easily add this to your look and feel by making a statement with your signature scent.
Your scent can set the tone for the whole year
The effect that fragrance has on our emotions is vast. According to some studies, perfume can both affect and change your mood. It can even enhance work performance and behaviour. It does this because of its aromatherapy quality and effect.
Knowing that perfume has this power to alter and possibly improve your mood is a powerful way to predetermine the tone for your new year.
Some of the positive mood change benefits that you can expect to find from a perfume with aromatherapy qualities include:
- Increased alertness
- Uplifting mood
- Feeling motivated
