The Pros And Cons Of The Perfume Shop

Feb 11, 2008
A perfume shop is a great option for people that are looking for perfume but don't quite know which one to opt for. The perfume shop helps people pick between the options by giving you the opportunity to smell and try a wide variety of perfumes all in one place. The added bonus of the perfume shop is that it often has a solid base of knowledgeable staff that can offer you advice and help as to which perfume you should choose. Staff in these places spend every day sampling perfumes and are kept up to date on all of the latest releases so if you are looking for something a little bit special they are able to help you. Furthermore they can offer some great advice. If you are particularly fond of a particular brand or type of perfume they will be able to advise you as to which other fragrances might be to your taste.

The perfume shop is great for offering you the opportunity to see the product and smell the perfume. The perfume shop also lets you peruse the latest special offers and deals that are available. It is a great option for people that need there perfume in a hurry and don't want to wait for delivery or for those people that want to buy perfume as a gift but have left it a little bit too late and need the perfume in a hurry.

The advent of the internet has made buying perfume both cheaper and easier. Online perfume shops provide enormous databases of the different types of perfume that are available. This can make buying perfume extremely easy. Often online sites will let you browse online and you can click straight through to pay and submit your shipping details. Many sites also offer a very quick delivery service so that it can often be delivered within a day or two. This can help save your blushes if you are looking of a present for a loved one and have left it to the last minute.

The major downside to buying online is that you cannot physically test the products for yourself. It has to be said that a lot of products are given extensive written reviews so that you can read testimonials on the products you are searching for. The sites that offer feedback from genuine customers are the best for feedback. I find that the reviews written by the people that produce the perfume are often extremely pretentious. The language you here is extremely flowery but then again it is really difficult to explain smells.

The language used to explain perfume can be quite daunting to the uninitiated. Some of the traditional scents use the following to describe the smells they induce. Single floral are fragrances that are predominantly made up of a single scent of an individual flower. The French call this soliflower meaning solo flower. A floral bouquet refers to a scent that contains a number of different scents in one cohesive perfume. Ambery refers to a large class of fragrances that utilise scents such as vanilla and animal scents as well as scents from the woods. These scents tend to be reminiscent of an association with the Middle East and can be enhanced through incense resins. Woody fragrances, as the title suggests, are dominated by woody scents like sandalwood and cedar. Many of the modern perfumes contain patchouli which is part of this group.

Traditional perfumes also include Leather, Chypre and Fougere smells. Leather smells include scents such as honey and tobacco. Chypre or Cyprus smells consist of fragrances such as bergamot, oakmoss, patchouli and labdanum. Fougre means fern and refers to scents that utilise plant matter such as lavender, coumarin and oakmoss.
