Tips When Searching For Perfumes Online

May 27, 2008
Most people have joined in the revolution of buying products online. Clothes, gifts and even food can be purchased online, yet there can be problems associated with purchasing some items on the internet. This is especially true if it is a new item such as a piece of clothing or a pair of shoes.

Perfumes online can prove problematic as well. While you can sniff the perfume of your choice at a department store, that cannot be done with an online purchase of a high price or discount perfume.

If you are buying your standard, tried and true perfume and cologne choices from an online store, then that is fine. But if you are buying new, untried women fragrances, then that is a bit risky. Buying perfumes online does not give you the luxury of testing out a new fragrance before you make that purchase. Sure a friend may wear the stuff all the time, but unless you give it a try you will not know how it will react on you.

So if you are buying a new perfume online, then this can be a risky. You have no real idea what it will smell like. The answer is to go to your local department store that features a perfume and cologne counter, and spray or dab a fragrance on your skin. Here is the trick: you are only going to be able to do this one at a time.

Most people make the mistake of smelling the cards and going from there. You need to actually spray your wrist and walk away for a bit. Let it have a chance to do its work. Do not make the mistake of going back and trying on a different scent that same day. Wear the one for the rest of the day.

Okay, so you have worn the perfume and you love the way it smells on you. However, if you have worn the fragrance and it does not seem to be sitting well, or seems to have a cloying feel about it, then go back and try a different scent until you find one you do like.

Then go ahead and buy your perfumes online. You may even want to try some designer fragrances. It is a great way to save a ton of money and will minimize the risk of having fifteen bottles of unused perfume sitting on a shelf.
