Which Aveda aroma complements your personality?

Will you vibe with Shampure

or fall in love with Cherry Almond?

If you know anything about Aveda, it’s probably that our products smell amazing. Our aromas are what we’re best known for, and we love each and every one. While every aroma has its olfactory magic, there are three “heritage” aromas that hold a special place in our hearts — the ones that have been around since the early days, and have legions of fans of all ages today: Shampure, Rosemary Mint and Cherry Almond.


If you’re not sure which of our “big three” aromas suits you best, no worries! We’re throwing it back to a good old-fashioned magazine-style quiz to help you find your perfect match.
