Perfume is a special and important feature for a woman. You can find a variety of them in the market, so the right choice is not that easy and requires special attention, time and searching. But how can you choose the one that fits you the most? Below you can find some tips that professionals suggest on how to choose the right one for you.
1. Stay in the “family”
Get an idea from the perfumes that you already have. Most people tend to prefer a primary perfume family, so they have a similar perfume sense. So, stay in the same perfume sense and try to experiment with different tones. For example, if you prefer perfumes with rose base, search for a perfume with base of another flower, like violet or jasmine. By remaining in the same family, you limit your primary searching.
2. Go shopping early in the morning
Buying a perfume is preferred to be done early in the morning. That’s because the sense of smell is better in the morning hours when your nose hasn’t got in touch with various daily smells yet. So start shopping as early as possible. Keep in mind that stress sharpens the sense of smell, so consider to go shopping for perfumes next time you feel stressed.
3. Spray and stop
Get a couple of different perfume bottles that interest you and spray on paper testers. If you can’t get one, spray in the internal of the cap (avoid spraying yourself). Smell the perfume one time and then stop. Go for a walk, see something else and avoid smelling it for at least half an hour! You should give it time to dry out and reveal its basic notes. When you smell it again, you will know if it’s the right one for you.
4. Restoring smell
Our glands of smell tend to “get tired” after almost three smells. What’s the result? You won’t be able to separate the perfumes or even end up with a headache. After each test of every perfume smell something neutral (ex. a piece of paper or even better smell some coffee beans that most perfume corners have). This will help you restore your sense of smell.
5. Test it
Once you identify some perfumes that you really like, ask for samples to test them at home. Perfumes may smell different from one person to another. That happens because its tones mix with each body’s natural oils and pheromones. Try one, per day and it is also important to avoid body lotions or even detergent smell on clothes. In conclusion, choose the best perfume based on your first impression. It is always the best to choose the perfume that you can’t help yourself but smelling it…
