A Guide to Picking Out a Perfume Perfect for You
Research about Fragrances
When choosing the right scent for you, do your research and get acquainted to the lingo of the fragrance world.
Choose the concentration
Are you someone who like a strong heavy perfume or do you prefer a lighter scent? How much are you willing to spend? Parfums are the most expensive kind because they have the most longevity of scent because of the high level of concentration of oil. Eau de Parfum and Eau de Toilette are popular options and come in a variety of choices.
Choosing the Fragrance Family
What kind of fragrances do you like the most? Earthy and warm scented one? Bright and floral smells? Or light and refreshing perfumes? According to these fragrance families choose one. Also consider the notes — top notes, heart notes and base notes— when choosing a perfume. The notes create the story of the fragrance and how they will evolve after you put them on.
Test a Sample
Found a perfume you think you might come to love but still aren’t sure about it? Get a sample and wear it out for a few hours. If you try a sample at the shop, try it on and wear it for a while to know how the fragrance will smell on you.
Ask for opinions
After wearing a new scent, ask your family and friends what they think about it. Whether it suits you as a person or whether it is too overwhelming. Get a second opinion from people close to you to know how the perfume smells to others.
Remember, at the end of the day, the fragrance you choose should be something you like because you’re going to be the one to wear it. Never be afraid to try out new scents and combinations. Take your time and choose a perfume that can be your signature scent and makes you feel amazing every time you spritz some on.
