A Scents of Occasion: the Best Perfume for Every Event

If fragrance evokes a feeling it can also help set the mood. Let Liberty teach you the art of matching your perfume to the occasion

Shop The Kit
By: Shannon Peter

When you think about it, matching perfumes to certain occasions makes total sense. Our sense of smell is hard-wired to the areas of the brain associated with memory and emotion, meaning certain scents can conjure up certain vibes, getting you in the mood for whatever activity is at hand. That’s precisely the premise behind A Scent to Remember, £75, the latest of Liberty’s beloved beauty kits and boxes, at least. Worth over £174, the line-up of scent miniatures offers you the chance to discover six new (or new-to-you) fragrances, exactly what you need to scent an entire season of memory-making. But where will you wear each one? Thankfully, we know just the occasion…

What to Wear on a First Date

Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur

A first date – or any date for that matter – requires something suitably magnetic, the kind of fragrance that not only begs your partner to scoot a little closer and linger a little longer, but makes you feel your very best, too. Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur (£94 for 30ml) is bound to do just that. It contains a warm and moreish mix of vanilla, musk and amber topped off with surprising notes like tangerine and cinnamon. Few scents are quite so seductive.

What to Wear on Holiday

CRAY-ON Sand Service

A summer fragrance that manages to bottle up all the best bits of a holiday, CRAY-ON's Sand Service (£75 for 50ml) helps you subject your trip away to scent memory. At first it feels crisp and green, like the plants that line a Mediterranean veranda, while the dry-down reveals deeper, woodier notes reminiscent of sundowners at twilight. In other words, it’s the kind of scent that deserves a spot at the top of your holiday packing list.

What to Wear to Host a Dinner Party

Serge Lutens La Fille de Berlin

Whether it’s to celebrate a birthday, promotion or just the fact you made it to Thursday, there’s something so life-affirming about hosting a dinner for a group of friends. And so your fragrance choice should feel equally as positive. Serge Lutens La Fille de Berlin (£110 for 50ml) is a modern rose scent with an edge, thanks to the inclusion of nose-tickling pepper. It’s the kind of fragrance that’ll make you feel like you’ve really got your life together.

What to Wear to Brunch

Escentric Molecules Molecule 01 + Patchouli

When sitting down to the breakfast table, you need a fragrance that won’t interfere with the decadent feast in front of you. And for that, may we suggest Escentric Molecules Molecule 01 + Patchouli (£95 for 100ml). An update on the cult classic scent, this version comes topped off with a warm and woody patchouli note that feels sophisticated and clean; like the smell of bare skin, only a little better.

What to Wear to a Garden Party

Ellis Brooklyn Myth

Thanks to the recent stroke of weather luck, you’ll likely have a spate of garden parties to look forward to throughout the summer, an occasion that requires a bright and airy perfume like Ellis Brooklyn Myth (£29 for 10ml). At first sniff it smells just like brushing past a gargantuan jasmine plant, yet it soon settles down to the lingering scent of musk and subtle cedarwood that somehow smells even better in the sunshine.

What to Wear to a Wedding

Vilhelm Parfumerie Peony Couture

Deciding what to wear to a season of weddings requires more than simply acquiring the perfect wedding guest dress. You also want a perfume that evolves along with the course of the day. Vilhelm Parfumerie's Peony Couture (£185 for 100ml) is just the thing. Early on it smells just like the billowing, velvety head of a fresh peony (ideal for a ceremony setting) but by the time the dancefloor beckons, that freshness will have made way for the deeper, headier notes of incense and cedarwood.
