How scents can help you with your New Year's resolutions

Out with the old and in with the new. With the beginning of the new year we often look back and reflect on the past 12 months. The start of the next year feels like a fresh start to many of us. The time for good resolutions, the time to break old habits and create new ones.

When it comes to perfume use, many people have the habit of sticking to one perfume for a long time.

A survey conducted by IVOX commissioned by MIGLOT Fragrance Lab, in February 2022, shows that almost 1 in 5 Belgian perfume wearers (17%) have been using the same perfume for pretty much all their lives. In contrast, 43% say they always use the same perfume for a long period and then change to another perfume they use for a while. Another 12% of perfume users always buy a different type of perfume when their current bottle runs out.

We are creatures of habit. When we like something, it becomes the safe and comfortable choice. We favor to keep it that way and don’t eager for much change. However, trying something new can positively surprise us. The start of a new year is a great time explore those other options.

Just like with food, your taste in fragrances can change throughout the years. This due to various factors like personal experiences, your mood, … That’s why it’s a good idea to try out fragrances out of your comfort range.

You don’t have to switch out your current perfume for a new one. You can also introduce scents for different purposes. Scents are true moodboosters. The right smell can help you to shift your mood. In this way you can also put scents to use to make less enjoyable activities more pleasant.

Think of the most common new year’s resolution, be healthier and exercise more. This is not something everyone looks forward to or enjoys doing. For this, scents can be your best friends. Wear one of your favourite perfumes when working out to make the activity more fun or introduce a new scent that gets you excited like a burst of energy or invisible personal coach.

Another popular resolution is to reduce our stress levels. We live in a fast-paced society and the importance of having moments to disconnect and reconnect has been rising. The right perfume can help you to create your own zen-moment. Spray it to help you wind down after work or when doing a relaxing activity like going for a walk. Having a ‘zen-scent’ can help you in other ways as well. Say, you have to give a presentation and you experience a lot of stress, wearing this perfume can calm you down and relieve some of the stress and worries.

Perfumes are incredibly powerful.

Let the start of the new year inspire you to try out new or different ways to use perfumes.
