Scent of a Ballerina

My friend just sent me a link to this wonderful piece about a ballerina choosing different perfumes for each role she dances (see the third paragraph):

Scent of a Ballerina

This plays on the notion of scent helping to create character – I wonder if actors use scent similarly to help them step into particular roles?  I know many people use scent in this way in their day-to-day lives – selecting a certain perfume for when they want to feel confident and powerful, another for sexy and seductive, yet another for demure or even invisible.

Do you choose perfumes based on your mood, or to help you present yourself in a certain way depending on the day’s demands?
