How To Sniff Out The Best Perfumes

Mar 3, 2008
Picking the best perfumes can be a difficult decision. There is so much choice that making a decision can be extremely difficult. The perfume industry is saturated with choices and with new fragrances being released every week the world of perfumes can quite frankly be overwhelming. If like me you are slightly baffled by the wide variety of choice but would nevertheless like to buy your loved one some perfume as a thank you gesture then how can you decide which one to go for?

Well there is no need to despair too much there are a number of things that you can consider that will help you make an informed decision. With the help of this article you are likely to be able to find your loved one something that they will love and will make you look like the loving thoughtful partner that you are.
So how can you make your perfume selection? Websites and online shops are extremely useful resources for finding out more information about perfumes.

A large number of these sites post a number of types of reviews. They will typically all post information about each of the perfumes that has been produced from the perfume manufacturers themselves. These descriptions are not always the most reliable source of impartial information as they tend to obviously dwell on the positive sides of the perfumes that they sell.

Nevertheless they are reliable in that they tell you what image the creators of the scents want the wearer to adhere to. That is to say that if you are after a perfume that has an image that is meant for a young, girly kind of girl the piece of writing from the perfume company will give you a good indication of whether it is for you. On the flip side if you want a perfume for a mature, sophisticated woman then the information from the marketing team will help you.

The only problem with the information from the perfume manufacturers is that it tends to use overblown language that can be quite daunting for the uninitiated. For example the new fragrance from Alex Curran (A girl who has become famous as the girlfriend of England and Liverpool footballer Steven Gerrard) is sold using the following terminology. The scent is said to be magical and enchanting with a floral heart and lively black pepper accord.

I haven't got a clue what any of this means but it has to be said that it sounds lovely. In this case it is important to take that the fragrance is meant to be magical and lively which to me suggests that it is designed for a younger woman. Once you have made sure that the perfume is aimed at the right type of woman the next thing you should do is look at reviews that have been written by people that work in the perfume industry.

Reviews written by the people that work in perfume shops are extremely useful sources of information. Although they occasionally do try and plug a perfume that they make more money on they will typically do this as part of a special offer section and you will be able to see what they have done.

The main benefit of reading these reviews is that the people that write them are experts on perfumes. They deal with perfumes every day of their lives and they know what people like. Further to this they also receive all of the latest perfumes so that they can have a really objective on the perfumes that are available on the market.
