What you mean is ‘too strong’ when you say a fragrance?
Ever wondered why, when shopping for a fragrance, certain smells take you back to a time when you were cuddling with your mom, or getting ready for an evening out in your teens? That is because the fragrance is focused on the life experiences of each person and so what you like or hate comes from whether you’ve developed a positive or negative relationship. When a department store advisor comes to ask you what kind of fragrance you ‘re looking for; have you ever heard yourself say “I don’t want anything too strong”? Which people mean when they say that’s ‘I don’t want something that I don’t like the scent of.’ Since your favourite parfum arabesc has never been too strong.
Certain ingredients decide the price of the perfume.
Love this fragrance scented by Jasmine but think it’s a little too steep? Pleasant quality fragrances aren’t getting cheap. Imagine how many flowers it takes to be selected individually by hand. For example, Jasmine needs 5 million flowers to make one kilo of perfume oil. Hence its perfume costs a lot.
Choose a fragrance what your lifestyle fit.
Try to avoid rose-scented fragrances if you find yourself falling asleep in the office because these can make you want to fall asleep; try to find something calming like black pepper blended into your fragrance to keep you feeling awake!
The scent smells different on your body
Using the white paper blotters found scattered around the shop while checking perfume. Spritz some perfume onto these tips to give you a taste of how it can smell. Picture these blotters as a hanger to your clothes when you buy a new outfit. You can see if you like the style, but when you try it on, you will only know if it fits. Perfumes on different individuals can smell very different; the fragrance varies because of the reaction that happens on the natural bacteria on our skin.
Remember, don’t be fooled by the idea that in smelling fragrances, you can smell coffee, because it won’t help you refresh your nose. It’s not the perfume which tires your nose; it’s the alcohol in it! The drug provides a numbing effect, and so time is the only way to ‘sober’ it up.
Can’t decide between EDT or EDP?
EDP has more robust and robust qualities; at 8 a.m., you could spray it, and at night you will still have 50 per cent left on you. However, EDT (also translated as ‘refreshing water’) mainly consists of top notes which give the fragrance freshness and sharpness. Around first, it would smell better, but by noon, expect 80 per cent of it to have gone missing.
Think about how would you use it!
When you have found the right perfume, consider applying it to clothes where there is maximum movement, e.g. your dress hem. The scent smells more intensely on motion, whether it’s your wrists or your body’s trunk. Keep your perfume away from heat and sunlight like your bedroom or bathroom window, to keep it at its best. We ‘d not want to waste your costly Jasmine perfume now, would we?
