There’s something so amazing about perfumes that you just cannot resist buying them. Also, it’s not a luxury but a necessity. We should all smell good and leave a good impression. However, a bad fragrance from the fragrance shop can ruin your entire personality in less than a minute. Moreover, there are so many brands with infinite perfumes available that it just becomes difficult to choose the right one. Here we will be talking about how you can choose the right perfume with a good fragrance.
Do read this till the end to know interesting tips and hacks about choosing fragrances.
Never Purchase Without Smelling
Confidence is good but over-confidence is not. A pretty looking perfume bottle might have a bad fragrance. Just like some good-looking people have ugly hearts. Perfumes also have personalities and we must understand those. Do test it on your wrists before you ask the salesperson to take the perfume to the cash counter.
Try different scents on each wrist to make it easier for yourself to decide which one to buy. You wouldn’t want to end up wasting your hard-earned money. You should only buy perfumes directly when you have used it before and you are aware of its fragrance.
Take Breaks When Smelling Multiple Perfumes
You should always take breaks when you smell different perfumes before buying. Most perfume stores have coffee beans available which you can smell. The strong smell of coffee beans refreshed your palate.
If you don’t do that, you might not able to understand what kind of smell a certain perfume has. This happens because the sense of smell is affected when you spray a lot of perfumes within a span of a few minutes.
Leave the Fragrance Shop After Trying Testers
We know this sounds pretty embarrassing but you have to do this in order to get the right perfume. You shouldn’t finalize your buying decision at the perfume counter. That’s because there are already so many perfumes and there are so many other customers trying them out.
Also, the store also has its own fragrance. This eventually mixes up all the scents and you are unable to figure the kind of smell. Therefore, always go outside the store to choose the right perfume.
Understand the Notes
We are not sure if you are aware of the notes that come in all perfumes. They are called the top, middle and bottom notes. The top note is supposed to be the strongest one and you are able to smell it after the very first spray. It doesn’t last for a longer time period. Experts say it doesn’t last more than 15 minutes and leaves behind the middle note.
The middle note is also known as the heart note because it adds life to the perfume. It also has a longer life than the top note. Lastly, we have bottom notes which are left behind after the middle tones fade away. Hence, don’t fall for the top note when buying a perfume. Make sure you like the middle tone. For example, if you like floral scents then make sure that the middle tone is floral because it has the strongest impact.
These four tips and tricks will ease your perfume shopping experience like never before. They sound a bit complex and time-consuming but that’s not really the case. Also, you don’t have to go through all these procedures if you plan on buying the same perfume as before. You can buy it without smelling because you have used it before.
For your ease, you can also order it from a perfume online shop. There are plenty of sellers that sell original branded and local perfumes online. Always read the ingredients and components of the perfume if you are ordering a different perfume online than your regular one.
Also, folks, we are repeating again that not every pretty bottle has a pleasant smell.
