How do you pick which perfume to wear in the morning? like many of us we get dressed first then spray whatever is the closest, our go-to signature scent or perhaps go with a fragrance that reflects what vibe we want to give off.

But have you ever sprayed your fragrance first, then picked your outfit around the scent? Well, I gave myself the challenge with this fragrance first approach to dressing.  See below on what these fragrances made me feel like wearing and the 3 words to describe them.
