When you’re at a loss for words, why not let a fragrance do the talking? In the seconds it takes to spray perfume, you’re sending out a complex message that hints at your personality and sets the mood. Of course, no one fragrance checks off all the boxes—how you’re feeling or what season it is will change what you want to spritz. This Valentine’s Day you might find yourself wanting to set a romantic mood, and you’ll find there is a fine line between a flirty fragrance and a seductive scent. If you’re searching for the perfect match, why not try pairing your perfume to your personality? Here’s how to navigate choppy (fragrant) waters—or should we say ‘eaus.’

For the trend-setter.
Do you order your coffee iced in the middle of winter and book your romantic mid-week escape off the beaten resort track? You’re a trend-setter. The iced-coffee accord and zesty lemon opener in Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium The Floral Shock makes for a floriental scent that riffs on the iconic Black Opium perfume and gives off an extra-cool vibe. If your tastes lean more to bubbles, Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy is as sparkling as a glass of champagne—in fact the bubbly stuff is one of the major notes. Berries, vanilla and sandalwood add to the treat-like nature of this fun gourmand scent.

For the dreamer.
Do you dream of being whisked away by your Prince Charming in a shower of flowers and rainbows? You’re a romantic. Chloé’s signature Fleur de Parfum drifts in like a rose cloud—light and airy with lemon, rose and cherry blossom notes. Plus, the whole gorgeous package comes wrapped up in a beautiful pink bow. If you’re feeling the butterflies of early romance, try Tory Burch Love Relentlessly. Pink pepper, rose, sandalwood and patchouli are swirled together for a scent that pays homage to the designer’s parents’ love story.

A glamour girl.
Do you wear sequins in the daytime and have nightmares about being underdressed at a party? You’re the ultimate glamour puss. Just like you, Thierry Mugler Angel Eau Sucrée is sprinkled with glittery crystals and contains a decadent concoction of berries, caramelized meringue cream and patchouli. If you approach dressing full-throttle, you’ll be drawn to the fuzzy white pom-pom on the flacon that houses ARI by Ariana Grande. The floral and fruity perfume charms with pear, grapefruit, rose petals, and vanilla orchid.

A sophisticate.
Do you own cashmere scarves in every shade of neutral and sip green tea from hand-crafted Japanese porcelain? You’re a sophisticate. Infused with jasmine, iris and Tunisian orange blossom, Lancôme La Vie Est Belle is a poised as a perfume comes. The peach-hued juice settles into warmth with patchouli and sweet praline. Black ribbons draped around the Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris bottle’s neck give a hint to the sophisticated Franco-flair inside. White peony, crystal moss, creamy white musk and Datura flower notes in leave a scent trail of pure elegance.
