Whether you’re majoring in Arts or Business, selecting a signature scent can be a great way to show people the real you on and off-campus.

Here are some fragrance recommendations based on your CSUF college.


College of the Arts

You’re someone who likes thinking outside the box. With notes that invoke heart-pounding adventure, these unique scents will set you apart from the rest.

Try: TokyoMilk Wild Whims Parfum or Imaginary Authors O, Unknown!


College of Business and Economics

As someone who understands money, you can appreciate the value of a good investment.

Splurge on a scent that matches your expensive taste, and revel in the luxury.

Try: Gucci Bloom or Creed Aventus


College of Communications

Successful Communications majors utilize their people skills and intuitive nature to great effect.

You’re someone who understands the power of a good first impression. Purchase a pleasing fragrance to really seal the deal.

Professional yet warm, people majoring in Education should pick a scent that matches their desire to teach.

Fresh fragrances with apple notes work wonders to put students at ease, while the sweetness keeps people alert in the classroom.

You’re someone who is interested in the world around you.

Pick a fragrance with notes that are universally beloved, like vanilla. Bonus points if your fragrance has a bit of history.
