Learn how to use fragrance in different ways

More than any of the human senses, our sense of smell is inextricably linked with our emotions and memory. To that effect, the scents we smell can influence and cajole our mood. Most of us choose to incorporate one or two signature fragrances in our daily lives because they reflect something about our personality, make us feel glamorous, and allow us to create an atmosphere more conducive to our overall wellbeing. 

There is a myriad of ways to enjoy your favourite scent - from fragranced body soaps and lotions to scented candles and diffusers - you can infuse your signature scents into different parts of your daily routine.

Here are a few ideas for maximizing your signature scent and increasing its longevity.

If you are a lover of sweet and floral scent profiles, for example, you can layer your fragrances by using different products with the same blend of ingredients in both your beauty routine and at home. 

Let’s use our Wild Coast collection

Wild Coast, where elegant iris captures enticing notes of black currant and wild jasmine grounded with rich praline and patchouli.

TOP NOTES: Raspberry, Amaretto, Black Currant

HEART NOTES: Iris, Wild Jasmine, Orange Blossom

BASE NOTES: Coffee, Vanilla, Praline, Patchouli

  • Scented Bath Soaps and Lotions

Body washes and soaps are a great way to infuse your body and skin with fragrance while also providing an aromatherapeutic and sensorial experience for ultimate pampering. 

Because of the nature of fragrance composition, some notes tend to evaporate more quickly after being applied so the best way to double down on the impact of your signature scent is by using the corresponding body lotion.

  • Body Perfume 

You can also add perfumes with your favorite sent profile to your everyday confidence-boosting routine. This is the longest-lasting and most potent form of fragrance. It provides intensity and lingers on your trail. 

The scent profile of our Wild Coast fragrance is very similar to La Vie Est Belle Soleil Cristal by Lancôme which can be layered effortlessly to intensify and keep your favorite scents aroma for longer. Place an order during September* and we'll throw in a sample of this fragrance for you to test.

A Cape Island secret: our room and linen fragrance doubles as a body perfume, and there happens to be a matching room fragrance in the Wild Coast collection.

It is recommended to apply your body perfume at all body pulse points including the nape of the neck, the bosom, and behind the ears - the heat emitted from these points will allow for balanced retention and hold of the fragrance. 

  • Home Fragrances

Now more than ever, people are craving a scent that is particular and unique to them. What better way to extend our confidence booster scents into our homes? 

Use scented candles, reed diffusers, or room sprays to saturate your space with beauty and serenity. 

Cape Island offers a variety of home and body-scented products to allow each individual to maximize their most preferred scents. Explore our products here.
