I no longer wear perfume due to my husband’s allergies, so no pairing required. (i do visit my beloved Dune every once in a while.)

I honestly didn’t even know that was “a thing” until I read this question! Nope, I never have. And certainly not something I would even do living in this part of the world. During summertime Fresh Life is about as potent a fragrance as I can handle, but I may still be out there in 110Β°+ with a serious smoky eye. Save my TF Black Orchid or Avon Christian LaCroix Absinthe for cool weather.

I used to match it to my outfits more than my makeup way back when, when I was in my late teens and 20’s. I had a whole dresser top full and sometimes it would be the red bottle because I was wearing a red shirt, or sometimes a musky spicy scent because I had on a turtleneck, sometimes it would be a floral scent because I was wearing pastels, etc. Now I wear only 2, regardless of season or clothes or makeup.

Only in the sense that I am choosing for the same occasion – If I am having a date night, I am likely wearing a sultry date night makeup look and a sexier scent, but if it’s a springtime workday it will be lighter makeup and a lighter scent.

Not intentionally, although sometimes a mood or style I’m going for can extend to the fragrance. But for me, it’s more about the overall “vibe” and not any specific pairing of makeup to perfume.

I don’t even know how I would pair my makeup with my fragrance. Wear all green and orange makeup with my Lime, Basil & Mandarin perfume? Wear whites and creams with my vanilla fragrances?

No, I just wear what I feel like wearing and appropriate to the occasion and season. I might wear a light floral in the day or I might wear something lightly woody or vanilla-y. In the evening I’ll wear something stronger and more sexy especially if I’m going out.

Never. I may choose a different scent for a formal function over a casual function but I pretty much wear what I want, when I want, and it’s based primarily on my mood.

Am I crazy cause I totally do lol. If I have dark eye makeup like a smokey eye I usually wear a heavier sexy scent and if I am wearing lighter eye makeup than I go for a light floral or sweet scent.
