It is said that smell is one of the strongest senses in humans. A scent can evoke a memory of you. Think of a time in public wear you smelled the scent of an ex, it must have jogged a memory or two. To impress your date or your friends, you may want to choose a scent that is memorable. Additionally in a date or dinner setting, more so than work, a date is a close encounter, so you want something that is not too strong. After all, you don’t want to overpower them with your scent.

With the above in mind, women should choose between floral or amber. Floral has notes of roses, jasmine, or lavender. While an amber fragrance has notes of wood, musk, or vanilla. Fun fact, vanilla in fragrance is considered an aphrodisiac. Great examples of date night fragrances for women are Poison Girl by Christian Dior and Tresor Midnight Rose by Lancôme.

For men, a date night fragrance should be with sweet notes such as vanilla, tonka bean, or myrrh. Think of Dolce and Gabbana the one EDP or Paco Rabanne 1 million lucky, both are sweet, romantic, and considered safe.  

For the guys who consider themselves bad boys. Think leather jacket and a bad boy attitude you want something that has leather or boozy notes. A perfect example is Carolina Herrera
