Perfumes become kind of synonymous to a particular person. This is particularly applicable for people who are really close to you or whom you know for quite some time. For instance the fragrance of vanilla and chocolate brings the essence of your mother, the French fragrance reminded of your private tutor and so on. It is evident that you can associate fragrances to people. Why not create an identity for yourself by choosing a signature perfume? And for that it is important to make the right choice in fragrances. Invest in a designer perfume and see the magic it has on people.
- Select perfume after smelling the final note
Every perfume and cologne contains an odoriferous element. There are different notes within a composed fragrance. When the perfume is applied, the top note can be smelled, and then the middle note also known as bouquet is felt. After both these notes fade away, the basic note is what stays and this is the final note of the fragrance. While selecting a designer perfume, wait till smelling the last note.
- Buy fragrances from different perfume families
Applying the same signature perfume all the time can become boring sometimes. It is recommended to change your fragrance according to the mood, the time you are wearing the perfume, the season and the occasion. Different fragrance families have different smells and varying impacts. Thus, it is always good to have perfumes from different fragrance families for every reason and every season.
- Take intervals while choosing perfumes
The salesman/saleswoman at the perfume counter might be highly persistent and ask you to test one perfume after the other. Never ever do that as you will not understand any perfume properly. Visit the perfume counter after breaks and make sure that you sniff from the coffee bean jars before testing the perfume. The olfactory perception gets clear with the coffee beans and you can make the right choice of designer perfumes without any problems.
- Consider your skin type
This is a very important consideration that needs to be made while selecting a designer perfume. Know if you have oily skin, dry skin, normal skin or skin between oily and dry. With drier skin, the perfume tends to dissipate quickly. This is the reason people with dry skin should settle for perfumes which have high concentration. This will enable the perfume to stay for a longer period of time.
- Purchase perfumes towards later part of the day
The olfactory senses in humans get keener with passing of the day as well as in warmer weather conditions. Shopping the designer perfume towards the later part of the day helps in smelling the perfumes more accurately. You can better understand which perfume will suit you best.
- Spray the perfume on a card initially and then on skin
This is a tip many of us don’t know. On visiting a perfumery, we often have perfumes sprayed on the skin directly. Avoid doing that. First spray the perfume on a card. Let 5-10 minutes pass. After that period smell the card again. See if you get the same fragrance again. If the smell persists, you can then think of applying the same on your skin.
Now there are many stores where you can buy designer perfumes for less. Just keep in mind these tips while buying the fragrances and you can get a good deal for sure!
