Who doesn’t enjoy a pleasant scent? One feels comfortable and gains confidence when one smell good. Additionally, the perfume’s lovely scent spreads uplifting energy. When someone wears perfume, it influences them and those around them. As a result, it is critical to use a perfume that matches your personality type.
Perfumes are used for a variety of purposes. Certain people use it to make a statement or make an impact. Others use it to mask offensive odors or make their natural perfume more seductive to attract the other sex.
Consider your favorite hue.
What is the relationship between color and fragrance preferences? Quite a bit, it appears. According to Amy Kiggins, COTY’s senior global marketing director for consumer fragrances, marketers frequently package perfumes in colors that reflect the scent or mood. Pink lovers, for example, are more inclined to prefer feminine, romantic, and sweet scents. (Think Burberry Her Eau de Parfum or Good Kind Pure’s Wild Peony Eau de Toilette.) On the other hand, someone who favors a deep brown tone is likely to prefer more rich, more complex aromas with notes of oud and tobacco. Tobacco Vanille Eau de Parfum by Tom Ford is a fantastic example.
The Environment is Important
Perfume is incredibly sensitive to changes in its surroundings regarding storage, almost like a living thing.
“Perfume does not appreciate going from cold to hot,” Kurkdjian explains, adding that such temperature changes “kick off unanticipated chemical reactions inside the natural ingredients, causing the perfume to age faster.”
For example, leaving a citrus aroma in a humid bathroom “affects the freshness” and can cause a raw material, such as patchouli, to smell off. In addition, he warns that ultraviolet rays can also change the hue of perfume, turning amber tones green. “You wouldn’t leave a bottle of Champagne out in the sun,” he says. So, surprisingly, the best location to keep fragrance is in its original box, at room temperature.
If in doubt, use your Hair
A scent may go far with a few common-sense guidelines. According to Kurkdjian, “perfume doesn’t linger long on dry skin.” To avoid any olfactory interference, he advises using either a body lotion that matches your fragrance or an unscented moisturizer. It matters where you apply perfume as well.
He advises targeting the wrists or inner elbows if you’re wearing a sleeveless top and the pulse spots of the neck instead of covering it up with garments. The only exception is if you’re in a scorching area, in which case it’s recommended not to apply perfume straight to your skin. “As you sweat, your skin’s natural oils [may] degrade your perfume faster.”
Spend your money on a fragrance that fits your style.
A smell that reflects your individuality should always be purchased.
Remember how sensitive a perfume’s chemical composition is. Never keep your perfumes in locations that are too hot or cold or where they might be exposed to direct sunlight. Also, never preserve your fragrances in a bottle; otherwise, they will evaporate.
