The Introduction Into Perfume

Oct 12, 2007
You've got your favorite outfit on, your hair looks spectacular, and the shoes are to die for: what's missing? Did you forget the perfume? Perfume gives an atmosphere to who you are. Just like you can find clothing that expresses who you are, you can select a perfume that fits your own unique style. You can choose a citrus scent, floral, musk, fruity, woodsy; there are many different choices.

The word perfume comes from the Latin word 'parfumare', which means 'through smoke'. Perfume started long before there were fancy spray bottles to place it in, and movie stars to endorse it. Long ago, essential oils, flowers, herbs, and many other things were used to create perfume for religious ceremonies and rituals, and celebratory events like weddings and births, and even deaths.

Some of the most famous perfume designers are Coco Chanel, Christian Dior, Tommy Hilfiger, Estee Lauder, and Calvin Klein. These designers create higher quality scents for men and women, and are believed to be the most popular perfume designers even today. Some of their scents include Chanel No. 5, Calvin Klein's Eternity, and TommyGirl.

When trying to choose the right perfume for you, there are a few things you want to remember. Depending on your body's own chemistry, a certain scent may smell differently on you than it will someone else. That's because the perfume blends with your body's scents and chemistry to create a unique fragrance.

See if you can obtain a sample, and wear it for a few days. By the end of the second or third day, the perfume will have mixed with your own natural scents, and you can decide if you will be satisfied for that scent or not. You can also choose scents by which type of scents they are.

Do you prefer fruity scents, flower scents, or something else? Narrow your choices down by choosing the category you are most fond of, and then trying those. Another thing you want to remember is that a different perfume for a different event may be needed. What you would normally wear to work might be different than what you would wear to go out. It's okay to have different types of perfume.

Wearing perfume is sexy, especially when you are getting close with someone. It should be light enough so that they have to lean in just a bit to smell it. You don't want the entire neighborhood to smell your perfume, so take care if it's a strong scent. Dabbing or spritzing on perfume after you've gotten dressed and ready is like putting the icing on the cake. Use the tips and ideas above to find the right perfume for you.
