Finding the Right Scent: Choosing Your Signature From Geologie’s Body Care Collection
Finding the right scent for deodorants or body wash is a process that takes some trial and error. It also gets harder when there are so many ingredients, good and bad, that are inconsistent from product to product. Luckily, if you know you want to find your signature scent, I did some research to help you out.
If you’ve been around for more than a minute, you’re no stranger to Geologie. Over the past few years, Geologie has made a name for itself in making skin, body, and hair care accessible to all types with its quality-first, scientifically-formulated product line. While Geologie already raked in over 22 awards since its founding, it’s going for another title: best smell! How’s that for a yearbook superlative?
All jokes aside – Geologie has aligned its product mix with three unique and proprietary fragrance profiles, leaving the hardest decision in your court. Which matches your style? Sit back and think, because we’ll be breaking down their three profiles, sharing some tips on how to make your choice, and making sure you get the low-down on how these super scents are working for you.
A Scent From Each Corner of the World
As if Geologie’s signature grooming line wasn’t solid enough, it really brings the heat and elevates its Natural Deodorant and Body Washes with Big Sur, Hana, and Moab at the helm of the sensory experience. Let’s break it down, using Geologie’s expert description of your sensory journey:
Hana with Deep Jasmine
A rip curl of sweet, seductive jasmine tones transports you from your bath mat into your very own nude beach.
Big Sur with Fresh Eucalyptus
Slices of orange, lemon, and eucalyptus cider cut with hints of ginger blend into a spellbound shower escape.
Moab with Bergamot & Juniper
We’ve bottled the Great Outdoors: musky red rock canyons, crisp river rapid spray, and floral bergamot fruitiness.
Your very own nude beach?! Sign me up! These scents are all winners and having tried each, Moab has become my personal favorite, but all of Geologie’s offerings skillfully walk the thin line of unisex fragrance. I’m most impressed that in my mind, at least, each scent remains pretty genderless as the experience revolves primarily around the sensory experience of the great outdoors.
Even better than the scents is the effectiveness of the deodorants as a whole. Having used a handful of natural deodorants in the past with lackluster results, switching over to Geologie’s Natural Deodorant was a scary transition.
My fears were quickly quelled by the facts. Geologie ensures all-day odor protection thanks to its proprietary deodorizing compound, which eliminates odors naturally, goes on clear, and dries fast with no white residue. And like all of its other recipes, there’s no yucky stuff. The Natural Deodorant is formulated without aluminum, baking soda, talc, phthalates, parabens, or artificial fragrances.
You’ll find the same scent profiles hard at work within Geologie’s Superclean Body Wash collection as well. If your needs are a little more high-powered, I’d check out Geologie’s unscented Acne Control Superclean Body Wash, which is formulated to be an effective and gentle warrior against acne on your back, chest (and elsewhere!) by treating the root causes of acne-prone skin.
Finding the Right Scent is Your Choice – Tips From the Pros
Sometimes having more information doesn’t help make the decision any easier, especially between these three profiles. Here’s a high-level look at some considerations to make when choosing a personal scent.
- Know your tastes. Compare scents and experiences that either have or haven’t worked for you in the past and take it from there. You know you gravitate towards musk or your partner won’t dig florals? That’s your starting mark.
- Do your research. Understand where the scent is coming from and how it is achieved. Luckily in this case, Geologie employs scents from the natural world.
- Experiment with light scents and work your way into the heavier ones. It’ll always be easier to ask for more than to ask for less!
- Know your audience! As much as a fragrance is for your benefit and experience, it affects those around you just as much (if not more). What’s the occasion?
The best way to know what you’ll like will always be to try ‘em all! The best way to get the full scope of the offerings is always to try all of those options. While a >$200 bottle of perfume might not work with this approach, replace your last bottle with the next scent in line. There’s joy in figuring it out for yourself, especially as you keep yourself clean in the process. Make sure to check out all the scents Geologie has to offer and get 20% off your order!
