Can Your Diet Affect Your Scents?

In a word, YES. 

Ever wondered why a scent smells different on you than it does on your friend? The answer is in the chemistry. Don't worry, this isn't the chemistry you took in high school, this has to do with body chemistry. When purchasing a perfume because it smells amazing on your mother-in-law, you should first consider body chemistry, the final ingredient in any fragrance. 

There are many things that play into why a scent doesn't smell the same on everyone – race, skin type, medications, pregnancy, and yes, diet. The food you eat can have a huge impact on your body scent, which of course is what is interacting with your perfume. A person who eats a balanced diet – composed of meat, veggies, fruits, nuts, and dairy in recommended portions – smells differently from a person with a rigid diet of just one or two of the main food groups. Vegans and vegetarians smell different from people who consume meat or fish. People who frequently eat spicy food might create a spicy undertone in fragrances they wear. 

This is why it is so important to try before you buy a fragrance. Sampling is the best way to get a feel of how the scent will work on you, because it may smell completely different on your best friend (sister, mother…) who was wearing it when you fell in love with it. Check out our Sample Palette and try all six signature Skylar scents before deciding on a full-size fragrance.
