When you buy a scent it is also essential to evaluate the time or the place where you will be using the scent. For example a strong perfume would be overpowering in a cosy office setting and may hamper your perception. This is the reason it is imperative to have two signature scents which you  can pull out efficiently in the day and in the night. You can definitely have a scent that works for both the day times but not at all times and events.
