We all know that fragrances should adapt to season, but it is still a mystery why you choose that intense fragrance as a teenager. Not anymore! One world renowned cosmetics company, in cooperation with psychologist Dr. Rachel Herz discovered the generation-influenced secret to fragrance preference.

Keep on reading to find out how age influences our “taste” in scents!

The eternal dilemma:When you want to smell good for yourself and the others!

Every woman knows how it is sometimes difficult to choose the perfect scent for the day or the occasion.

Rachel Herz discovered how our everyday olfactory choices are directly related to perception, emotions, memory and cognition. Dr. Herz studied women of different ages and found that different age groups are influenced by quite different reasons when it comes to perfume selection.

“Fragrance choices are similar to fashion choices,” she said. “Although all women primarily chose a particular fragrance because they like the scent there are other strong external influences on her fragrance selection that vary as a function of a woman’s age.”


Teenagers are the most influenced by their peers and their group identity. That is why they often opt for celebrity fragrances like the one signed by One Direction or Beyonce which, in addition to their attractive name are a popular choice because of their affordable price.

20’s Girls:

Women in their twenties are most prone to “fall under the influence” of the ads in magazines and on television. With carefully selected stars they can relate to, such as Blake Lively or Kristen Stewart, stardome copycatting is the impetus for buying the fragrance, because it is actually a purchase of a certain lifestyle and image.

The combination of lovely notes that ferment into bewitching pleasure and a catchy name, it is no surprise Wild Child by Pinrose is such a popular choice with twentysomething girls!

Flight of Fancy by Anna Sui, with its always in vogue fruity notes of yuzu and litchi has the propensity to make you feel so happy, that you actually want to tickle the clouds. Fruity, flirty, fragrant, forbidden for the ones who don’t feel young at heart!

Amor Amor Forbidden Kiss by Cacharel dares you to smell the elation of illicit thoughts, of stolen secret glimpses, heart palpitations, of discovering the true meaning of love. Opening with innocent fruity blast, it ends with a deeper, darker oriental drydown of vanilla and white musk. Romeo and Juliet unfolding in scented tale!

Ladies in their thirties:

“Women in their thirties are on the hunt for feel good fragrances,” says Herz. All the perfumes concocted with the intention of making women smile are the ideal fragrance choice. This usually means gravitating towards the gourmand or powdery alley on the fragrance block, something very similar to Poppy EDP by Coach or Bright Crystal Absolu by Versace!

The epitome of Parisian style in perfume bottle:quirky, glamorous, polished and just downright cool. Poppy EDP by Coach is excellent olfactory style chameleon: it goes perfectly well with a designer labeled gown or a classic oversized white shirt, a relic from an ex-boyfriend, now worn with a new boyfriend!

Ladies in their forties:

Women who have crossed the forty threshold are usually prone to choosing fragrances that please their significant others.

Ladies in their fifties:

Ladies with experience in both life and fragrance have decided it is about time to start thinking about pleasing their own fragrant palates. This is the reason why they opt for fragrances that offer emotional “lifting” and provide a sense of warmth. This usually involves notes with the likes of orange, cedar and ginger.

Carven Le Parfum by Carven Parfums was designed with celebration of womanhood, so it would make an excellent gift for every woman who decides that perfume choice is just as personal as any other choice in life.

 Ladies in their sixties:

Women in their sixties, according to Dr. Herz, love the smells that remind them of the past and often choose fragrances they wore back in the days. Norell New York by Norell was an extremely popular perfume “back in the days”, so I am sure it will bring back some long forgotten memories, plus add an elegant feel to the nostalgic notes.

    Really? Women in their 50s and 60s only get one fragrance example. Shame on you.

    I'm in my twenties and I don't like any of the perfumes here. They're too strong and they hurt my nose.
