Choosing the Best Fragrance for You

Discover the world of fragrances!

Did you know? The delicate fragrance of NIVEA Creme takes us back to our childhood and a summer’s day appears in our mind’s eye when we smell sun cream. Scents influence our feelings and memories.

NIVEA fragrance: the fragrance for life

The original fragrance of NIVEA Creme has hardly been changed over the years and continues to consist of many different components. Discover the three scents that make up the famous NIVEA fragrance.

NIVEA fragrance: the fragrance for life

The head note: 
The head note determines the first impression of the fragrance from the moment the lid is removed and in the first few minutes afterwards. The citrus notes of orange, lemon and bergamot are the most prominent here. 

The heart note: 
After approximately ten minutes, the flowery heart note is perceptible: this is where rose, lilac, lavender and lily-of-the-valley set the tone. 

The base note: 
Finally the base note can be detected in a discreet combination of musk, heliotrope and amber.

Choosing the best fragrance for you

Choosing a fragrance not only expresses your mood and personality but also influences how you want to be seen by the people around you. Here you will find inspiration as to which NIVEA fragrance might suit you best.

Romantic countryside

The romantic

Emotional and sensitive – these are the characteristics of the romantic. Love long walks in the countryside? Then flowery scents and notes such as magnolia or orchid will emphasise your personality particularly well. Choose Supreme Touch Cream Oil Shower with its delicate scent of magnolia. Or create a feel-good moment with Cashmere Moments Cream Oil Shower with its sensuous fragrance of orchid.

The elegant style icon

Stylish, confident and graceful – that’s how you are described by your friends. Is a dramatic entrance important to you? Powdery flowery scents such as rose or lily will be just right for you. The fragrance of calla lily and the Diamond Moments Cream Bath by NIVEA will create a glamorous bathing experience. The Harmony Time Cream Bath leaves a delicate fragrance of rose on your skin.



The temptress

Sensuous, alluring and charming. Is that how you see yourself? Oriental fragrant notes like patchouli or cocoa emphasise your sensuality and seductive nature. The fragrance in In-Shower Body Lotion Cocoa & Milk or NIVEA In-Shower Body Milk will suit you. Or emphasise your character with Cashmere Moments Cream Oil Shower. With its cashmere extract, it moisturises and envelops you in the sensuous fragrance of orchid.

The sports star

The sporty woman exudes naturalness and action. Her character is expressed in fresh and fruity scents such as aromas of citrus and aquatic essences.
