Of all our senses, our sense of smell is most closely tied to our memory.
While many things throughout our daily life can trigger a sense of nostalgia, nothing has the power to make us viscerally relive the past like a fragrance; they’re scents that become entwined into specific moments in time. Our brains love to reminisce, especially when we get a whiff of a familiar scent. From affecting your emotions, to influencing moods or even reliving entire memories with just a whiff.
Our scent affects the presence around us in a way that not everyone has realised. Whether it’s the lingering smell of aftershave, the trailing presence of a perfume mist or a more powerful perfume- we always leave a little bit of ourselves in the memory of another’s world. Every scent is a practice in living larger than our physical selves.
To gift a scent, is to gift a memory. From lovers to friends, from sisters to a favorite colleague, gifting a Fragrance forms a deeply emotional and meaningful connection. Giving someone a perfume shows that you have put a lot of thought into who the recipient is and what they might like. It’s also something that they will wear every day – thinking of you.
That’s why giving someone a perfume is a sign of affection.
If you’ve decided to go ahead and Gift A Scent to your best friend, you’re now left with the final question- Which one should you buy? We’re not going to lie, buying a perfume for someone can be quite tricky. But we have a few tips under our sleeves which could help you choose the perfect scent!
Start by looking at your friend’s style or personality. What a person wears and how they act can tell you a lot about them- if they’re sporty, they maybe enjoy a woody or leather scent like Rockstar or Arise. If they’re more sensual and out going, Chic, Flirty or Lolette would make for the ideal gifts. Evoke and Love & Joy, chosen by The Cister Co are floral, summery and fresh.
For those who are always out and about, our range of Perfume Mists: Urbane Nights, Rockstar, Evoke and Love & Joy would be the ideal gift! These come in a sleek 100ml bottle that can be easily slipped into your gym bag or travel kit or simply kept in your office drawer for a quick touch up.
