Your Fragrance Questions Answered by MAIR's Founder

Posted by Mair Emenogu on Feb 27th 2024

As a fragrance brand owner, I'm constantly engaged with my customer base, fielding inquiries about all things scent-related. From questions about fragrance's tie to memory to seeking the best tips for wear, the curiosity knows no bounds. Back when I first started blogging, I made it a tradition to compile a yearly wrap-up of the most commonly asked questions. 

Now, I'm excited to revisit that tradition and share insights with you all. Scents possess a unique power—they can evoke emotions, trigger memories, and even influence our moods. So, without further ado, here's my take on some of the most heartburning questions on fragrance that I've received. Let's dive in and unravel the secrets of scent together! 

Q: What exactly is fragrance made of? 

A: Fragrance is composed of various aromatic compounds, which can be derived from natural sources like flowers and spices, or created synthetically in a lab. These compounds are carefully blended to create unique scent profiles. 

Q: How does scent affect our emotions? 

A: Scents have a direct impact on our emotions through the limbic system, the brain's emotional center. Different fragrances can evoke feelings of relaxation, energy, or nostalgia, depending on their composition and our individual associations with them. 

Q: Can scent trigger memories? 

A: Yes, scent is closely linked to memory. The olfactory system, responsible for our sense of smell, is connected to the brain's limbic system, which processes emotions and memories. Certain scents can trigger vivid recollections of past experiences more strongly than other sensory cues. 

Q: What are some popular fragrance trends? 

A: Fragrance trends vary over time, influenced by factors such as cultural shifts, celebrity endorsements, and innovations in scent technology. Currently, there's a growing interest in sustainable and natural fragrances, as well as niche perfumes crafted by independent fragrance houses. 

Q: How can I choose the right fragrance for me? 

A: Finding the perfect fragrance involves considering factors such as your personal preferences, skin chemistry, and the occasion for wearing the scent. It's also helpful to explore different fragrance families, such as floral, woody, or oriental, to discover what resonates with you. 

Q: Are there any emerging innovations in the fragrance industry? 

A: Yes, the fragrance industry is constantly evolving with new innovations and technologies. From advancements in sustainable sourcing and production methods to the use of artificial intelligence in scent creation, there's no shortage of exciting developments on the horizon. 

Q: How can I make my fragrance last longer? 

A: To prolong the longevity of your fragrance, apply it to pulse points like wrists, neck, and behind the ears, as these areas generate heat that intensifies the scent. Additionally, moisturized skin holds fragrance better, so consider applying unscented lotion before spraying perfume or cologne. 

Q: What role does scent play in branding and marketing? 

A: Scent plays a crucial role in branding and marketing, as it can evoke specific emotions and associations that enhance the overall brand experience. Many companies use signature scents in their retail stores, hotels, and even product packaging to create memorable brand impressions. 

Q: How can I experiment with fragrance without committing to a full bottle? 

A: Many retailers offer fragrance samples or travel-sized bottles that allow you to test a scent before committing to a full-sized bottle. You can also explore subscription services or fragrance discovery kits that provide a variety of scent options to try. 

Q: What's the best way to store fragrance to maintain its quality? 

A: To preserve the quality of your fragrance, store it in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures. Keep the bottle tightly closed when not in use to prevent evaporation and oxidation, which can alter the scent over time.

I hope my insights have shed light on some of the mysteries surrounding scent and its profound impact on our lives. Remember, scent is a deeply personal experience, and there's always more to discover.
