The idea of a signature scent is appealing.

One likes to imagine wafting through rooms leaving a lingering essence of who we are; a perfume that captures our spirit and, in its traces, evokes our memory.

This however is easier said than done and things get even trickier when choosing a fragrance for someone else.
