Perfume Selection Tips From The Experts

Oct 8, 2007
Your special "smell" creates a lasting impression on the people you meet. The scent created by your perfume and unique body smell is like your personal message to the people you come in contact with every single day.

A long lasting "scent" effect is created if you know how to layer fragrance on your body to be able to build and create a fragrance foundation. Importantly, you have to be aware of your particular skin type as it could always affect how a particular perfume can smell on you. What may smell great on others may not necessarily smell great on you. Those with oily skin should remember that the perfume's essential oils will react with your very own natural oils to create an intense scent. As for those with dry skin, fragrance is not retained that long as compared to those with oily skin, so the fragrance has to be reapplied as often as necessary.

Perfumes should be kept away from extreme heat and kept in a cool and dry place. Once it is opened, it should be used as over time the fragrance will fade or change in character. The perfume's exposure to the sun can affect its scent as the perfume's balance is disturbed.

Lighter scents are more appropriate for hot weather while stronger scents should be reserved for the dry and cooler weather.

Perfume should be applied right after a shower when your pores are open.

When you are testing scents, the perfume should be applied to the skin directly to obtain the perfume's true reaction instead of smelling it from the bottle or smelling it from a piece of paper sprayed with the scent. The wrist would be a perfect spot to test it on. Allow the perfume to settle and interact with your body heat and natural scent before taking on a whiff.

When you are shopping for perfume, never try on more than three different scents as your nose will lose its ability to be able to tell the difference. Smelling on coffee beans can clear your sense of smell so before taking a whiff at another scent get yourself smelling on some coffee beans first. You can apply the first two scents on your wrists and then the third one on the crook of your arm (inside the elbow bend).

Using perfume or fragrance during the day will improve your mood and overall well-being. By smelling great, you are acting gracious to the people around you as you make your life and those around you smelling great and pleasurable.
