New Year, New Fragrance: How to Choose a New Scent for 2022

You might be one of those people that have a hoard of fragrances you bought over the years. We see you. Or maybe you have that signature scent you adore that you stick with year after year. Either way, the new year is the perfect time to find a new fragrance that can represent this momentum change. Even if you don’t consider the new year to be anything special, we think you deserve to treat yourself!

Many people make resolutions or goals at the start of a new year. Veganuary is a month-long challenge that helps people eat vegan, so this is a popular goal. But what about your beauty products?

Or maybe you set a new year’s resolution to be more eco-friendly. Dolma Vegan Fragrances is there to help you on the journey to transition your beauty products and fragrances to vegan, cruelty-free beauty that is good for both you and the planet. But where do you begin?


How to Choose a New Signature Fragrance

Dolma has twelve fragrances that have more feminine scent profiles and four aftershaves with earthy base notes. Of course, these are all versatile and gender-neutral but we’ve placed them into categories to be more easily searchable.

If you already have a favourite perfume or aftershave, what are the fragrance notes? This is the first place to start. If you know you like floral, citrus, woody or spicy scents then you can easily search for fragrances on our website that have similar vibes. When on the main Products page, look in the left sidebar for those four categories, or find them under the Products dropdown in the top menu bar. We make it easy to find a new scent based on the type of fragrances you already love.

When looking at a specific perfume page, scroll down to Fragrance Notes and expand it. This is where you’ll find all the different notes – top, middle and base – that we use in each fragrance. Knowing what kind of scent and essence is used in each perfume can help you narrow down the many choices of vegan fragrances.


What’s the Difference Between Top, Middle and Base Notes?

Top Notes – These are lighter scents that hit you right as you open the bottle or spray the perfume. Top notes are typically fresh and sharp, taken from citrus, fruit or fresh herbs.

Middle Notes – These scents start to come through right after the top notes dissipate and are the most dominant smells in the fragrance. When you are looking for a new fragrance that reminds you of a particular scent, look for it in the list of middle notes.

Base Notes – These scents are the longest lasting and are noticed more after the fragrance settles into the skin. Typical base notes in perfumes are vanilla, patchouli, woody notes and musk.
