My main job as a content creator at The Mood Guide is to help and inspire women to connect with their souls and to use everyday activities like shopping as a tool to turn their true heart desires into reality. And that’s why I am in love with Dossier perfumes. Because by making design-inspired perfumes affordable, with high fixation, vegan, cruelty-free, and non-toxic they are allowing everyone to have access to one of the most powerful sensory tools we have: fragrances. There’s a reason why design fragrances are so famous: it’s a sensorial full circle. On one hand, there’s how the scents make you feel, what they trigger in your brain and your emotions. On the other hand, your perfume mixed with your skin create your exclusive signature that will leave an impression wherever you go.
That’s why there is a cult over the Musky Oakmoss – Dossier’s version of the very expensive Creed’s Aventus, the Ambery Vanilla, a dupe for the sexy YSL’s Black Opium, and many more fragrances from Dossier. I got so excited about Dossier’s possibilities that I dug deep into their 15 scents families and found the perfect fragrances for our most popular moods and aesthetics. And because you can layer them, it’s easy to have the perfect fragrance for your mood and aesthetic.
The Best Dossier Perfumes For Your Mood & Aesthetics
Minimal Chic Mood x Musky Family
Women who identify with the minimal chic aesthetic have their masculine side slightly more accentuated than the feminine. Usually, these women are career driven and focus on their financial independence before building a family.
Their femininity is shown in a subtle sensuality, in high heels or sexy dresses. Minimal chic women prefer clean lines and neutral colors.
Go for fragrances in the Musky family if you wanna enhance your masculine side, channel your boss energy, or if you want your man to feel sexier and more refined.
The most popular fragrance in Dossier’s Musky family:
“Fresh, refined, and pleasantly surprising, Musky Oakmoss (our impression of Creed’s Aventus) has a kind of British phlegm, hiding high sophistication under a casual appearance.”
Girly Mood x Floral Family
This is the easiest identification between aesthetics and scents. Girly women love all things typically associated with the feminine, like pink and soft colors, delicate dresses, and ethereal things.
Girly, romantic, and very feminine women are often the ones attracted by the Floral family.
The most popular fragrance in Dossier’s Floral family:
“Sensual, innocent, yet playful, Floral Marshmallow (inspired by By Kilian’s Love, Don’t Be Shy) delivers an exquisite blend of vibrant florals and edible notes.“
Dark Academia Aesthetic x Woody & Powdery Families
Here is the most unexpected blend. The Dark Academia aesthetic smells like a cozy combination of paper, wood, and humidity from old libraries with that powdery scent from grandma’s makeup. It’s a balanced combination between masculine and feminine. No wonder most fragrances I associated with this mood are unisex.
You can go with either family or both.
The most popular fragrance in Dossier’s Powdery family:
“Opulent, highly qualitative, and assertive, Powdery Tobacco (our impression of Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille) perfectly reinvents the cozy atmosphere of the lounge in a London club.“
The most popular fragrance in the Woody family:
“Qualitative and minimalistic, Woody Sandalwood (our impression of Le Labo Fragrances’ Santal 33) brings to mind the comfort of a warm hug, conveying a strong feeling of inner sensuality that’s unmatched by any comparable scent”.
And the list could go on for hours, but you got the idea, right? Can you identify your favorite aesthetic and associate it with the perfect scent family? Finally, I can’t stress enough about the non-toxic clean formulas: they are paraben-free, phthalate-free, colorant-free, and UV-Filter free.
