Contrary to popular opinion, we actually don't need as much help from the experts picking out our fragrances as we might think.

BeautyPress recently reported on an article in Cosmetic Design that reveals the science behind why you choose certain notes over others, or tend to have a signature type of scent.

Despite our uncertainty in selecting what fragrance works best for us, a study conducted at Stirling University by Dr. Craig Roberts reveals that we choose a scent based on how it will interact with our own chemical makeup. Pretty cool huh?
