Picking a perfume is very much like picking a What’s App DP. It has to show off your best features, remain true to your personality and evoke enough curiosity in others that they want to get to know you better!

At the Lux Golden Rose Awards 2018, we interviewed Lux fragrance expert Aditi and asked her a few questions about how to pick a signature fragrance. Read on for a fun interview with Team BB where the fragrance expert talks about what fragrance she associates with some of your favourite Bollywood celebs, who are also iconic Lux faces…

On Lux and their long association with fragrances…

“I think Lux wants to talk about bringing beauty, fine fragrances into the soap experience and into showering experience, and finally getting the inner beauty out. They use a lot of fragrances and a lot of flowers, which helps in bringing out complex fragrances. There could be a rose, there could be a jasmine, they will not specify, it could also be floral bouquet, but finally the fragrance comes out in a way that is unique.”

On the varieties of fragrances...

“Variety is unique and depends on each mood. If it is refreshing fragrance, it could uplift your mood or even relax you.”

What fragrance would you pick for these Bollywood celebs?

Shah Rukh Khan
 

Shah Rukh Khan

“I think I would pick the most mesmerising and invigorating fragrance for Shah Rukh Khan. A fresh scent with woody, amber-y base notes, which is a sensuous combination, is perfect for Shah Rukh Khan.”

On what other sources of fragrances there are apart from flowers...

“There could be woods, fruits even a spice could be the inspiration for a fragrance. It also depends on what you are creating for.

On the difference between a body wash and a soap fragrance...

“They differ in the complexity of their structure, but in simpler terms, there is more fragrance in body washes, it just has more bloom, your bathroom will smell beautiful for longer, there is more fragrance perception with a body wash.

On which Lux body wash fragrance is her personal favourite...

“The fragrance of a rose is my favourite because the complexity is great, and it’s just beautiful. So I like the Lux Soft Touch Body Wash with French Rose and Almond Oil and also the Lux Magical Spell Body Wash with Black Orchids and Juniper Oil.”

On what effects fragrances have on your mood...

For better relaxation...

Look for a woody fragrance to calm you down. A nice sandalwood fragrance or an amber note will relax you like no other.

For soothing fragrances…

Look for a floral note, like a nice jasmine, something that feels familiar and soothing.

For reducing stress…

Look for a citrus note, like lemon or oranges, which can instantly reduce stress.

For sensual notes…

Look for woody fragrances like amber and also gourmand fragrances like honey, chocolate or vanilla.

For mood uplifting…

Look for citrusy fragrances like lemons, oranges, mandarins and apples.
