Raya-worthy Scents fo All Occasions

[As published on HERE]
With Raya in full swing, we’re pretty sure everyone’s having fun and catching up with friends and family right now. With so many outings to plan and attend, matching your outfits and head scarves to fragrances that are suitable for the occasion is important. Here are some of our favourites:
Delicate scented veil
Perfect for: visiting friends and family
During the daytime, the heat can intensify the smell of your perfume, so it’s best to opt for a light and airy scent that’s versatile and ‘friendly’ for all noses.
Your goal: To smell fresh, even on a hot day.
Key notes to look out for: Rose, grass, peony, pear, verbena
Raya Perfumes4
We recommend:
1. DKNY Pure A Drop of Rose
2. Annick Goutal Petite Cherie
3. Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede

Sweet seduction
Perfect for: a high-tea date
Sweep him off his feet with a sweet scent with unique notes he just can’t put his finger on. Too much of a gourmand scent can be a little off-putting, so use sparingly. One or two sprays max should do the trick.
Your goal: To let him remember the way you smell (in a good way of course)
Key notes to look out for: Cherry, honey, vanilla, blackcurrant, peach
Raya Perfumes3
We recommend:
1. Dior Addict Eau Delice
2. Marc Jacobs Honey
3. Avon Only Imagine

Classics with a twist
Perfect for: attending an open house
Meeting new people and striking up conversations with strangers requires an extra bit of confidence. You can’t go wrong with these classic scents, which are lighter and more suitable for young ladies compared to their original predecessors.
Your goal: For that extra boost of confidence that you smell good
Key notes to look out for: Mimosa, ylang ylang, grapefruit, musk, water lily
Raya Perfumes1
We recommend:
Bulgari Omnia Coral
L’eau d’Issey Summer 2013
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle

Elegance in a bottle
Perfect for: meeting up with the girlfriends
Only a girl will be able to tell the difference between what perfumes you wear. Don’t be put off by celebrity fragrances, sometimes the scent that lies behind the name is an unexpectedly pleasant surprise.
Your goal: To show that not all celebrity fragrances suck
Key notes to look out for: Lime, patchouli, jasmine, frangipani, sandalwood
Raya Perfumes2
We recommend:
1. Katy Perry Killer Queen
2. Jessica Simpson Vintage Bloom
3. Rouge by Rihanna
