How to choose the right body spray-- What does your fragrance say about you?

Have you ever been walking down the street, completely lost in thought, passed someone wearing Chanel perfume, and all of a sudden, a memory pops into your head you hadn’t thought of for years? Maybe you hadn’t even realised you knew what your auntie’s perfume smelled like until you smelled it on someone else, but it is unmistakable.

Why do some smells trigger such powerful and emotional memories?

Fragrances are one of the strongest triggers of memory.

Quick and painless science lesson that’s actually pretty interesting… Your brain’s olfactory bulbs process the scent and send that information straight to your amygdala, which is where you process emotions. From there they go to the adjoining hippocampus, which is where memory and learning happens.

Scents are the only sensory input that travel this way, with sights, sounds, etc going through the thalamus instead. Because scents bypass the thalamus step, there is an extremely strong tie between emotions, scents, and memories. See? Now you’re ready for pub quizzes when they reopen.

Some people even use a scent to help remember a loved one and feel close—I remember my mum always wore Issey Miyake when she would go out, so now I keep it by the door and spritz it when I’m feeling nostalgic.

I’ve always loved scents and own quite a few! But I often want something subtle that will last all day (but not be overpowering like some eau de toilette). Which is why we created our Australian made  Body Mist Fragrances that would tick all the boxes.

Introducing Everyday Lingerie Co.’s Body Mist Fragrances!

We teamed up with a naturopath, aromatherapy specialists, and chemist to create four signature scents. Each scent is based on one of the four elements – earth, air, water, and fire.

Our perfume atomisers are air-pressurised (non-aerosol) and skip the nasty chemicals. And they’re packed in Melbourne and made from all Australian ingredients—even the alcohol comes from grapes from South Australia! Of course, they’re also cruelty free and vegetable / palm oil free.

The result is a natural perfume atomiser in a convenient 100ml bottle size. It can easily fit in your bag for on the go, and all are priced at only $21.95!

So which fragrance are you and your friends?

Oceana gals are young and carefree, and they live for warm, sunny days by the water. Oceana is the scent of a fresh ocean breeze with the subtle blend of rosewood with lavender, violet, and summer fruits coming together to take you back to warmer days.  Aquatic fragrance lovers are free-spirited dreamers, casual and cool, spontaneous, and relaxed.

Leilani ladies are earthy and elegant. Perfect for a day-to-night scent and captures the very essence of soft fruits and floral tones providing a sweetened Vanilla fragrance.  Feminine, friendly, and quick with a smile, Leilani wearers love to tick off their to-do lists as much as they love being outdoors and sipping a drink with friends.

Aria wearers are a bit more mature and love to take time to be with themselves and just breathe. The perfect blend of Jasmine and vanilla with soft wood under tones, I wear this one day in and day out.  Everywhere and every day. All the time.

Gazania women are strong and unapologetic, bursting with warmth and confidence. The strongest floral burst, Gazania brings together five floral tones to create this perfectly balanced scent for fiery, strong women who love themselves and are comfortable in their own company.  

Choosing the right fragrance that complements your personality and makes you feel happy can set off your whole day, so head on over and check out our range to discover the perfect one for you.

It’s also a really thoughtful gift idea and shows you care enough to think about not only what scent she would love, but also which matches her personality.
