Scent stories: Rosan
My favourite thing about my job, other than the people, is the opportunity to discover perfume. You can't exactly work in a perfume company without knowing your stuff, and it's fair to say we do. I'm Rosan, and my favourite fragrance families are Floral and Woody.
Hi there, nice to meet you! I'm Rosan (better known as Ro), and I have been with Parfumado for a year and a half as the Design & Creative Manager. I'm the go-to person when it comes to branding, visual identity and creative projects. Since joining the Parfumado team, I've discovered the magical world of perfumes, and it has been giving me so much creative inspiration every day. I'm excited to share my all-time favourites and thoughts on perfumes with you. Ready, steady, Ro!
What are your three favourite perfumes?
My all-time favourite is So Nude from Costume National. It's a soft floral perfume that gives me a put together and relaxed feeling. It's the perfect scent for days at work as it's not too present, and I promise you won't get tired of it.
If I want to smell a líttle more extra, my go-to perfume is Jasmine / Osmanthus from EPC. It's a feel-good fragrance that I wear when I go on a date or have dinner with friends. This perfume gives me a soft floral boost and makes me feel extra feminine & confident in my skin.
Sometimes you feel like you want to spice things up a little and stand out from the crowd. For those moments, I go to Cobalt Amber from Abel. It's all-natural as well as being fabulous. This perfume is one of the richest perfumes I know, and it feels like you're soaking in a bath full of heavenly spices. This perfume can be a little intense on the first sniff, but after it breathes, it melts together with your skin. An extra plus of Cobalt Amber is how long it lingers on your skin; you'll smell it when you go to bed.
What does perfume mean to you?
Perfume makes me feel complete. Since I work for Parfumado, I honestly think there hasn't been a single day where I didn't wear perfume. Even when working from home, I spray perfume to make me feel active & ready for the day!
I like to surprise my senses during the day, matching my perfume with my mood. I'm known among my friends and colleagues for changing my outfit probably four times a day (don't ask why). And I do the same with my perfume! Therefore I feel like our travel size perfumes are designed for me. As a creative, I believe that fragrances are full of emotion and inspiration, so I will never settle for one 'signature perfume'.
If you could describe your ideal scent, what would that be?
I love a not-so-ordinary scent that takes me on an exciting journey. Preferably a sunny destination where I feel good and relaxed. So I'm thinking of a warm and sunny scent that will evolve and surprise me all day long. Hit me up when you want to create this perfume together!
