The ABCs of perfume shopping

Know your fragrance
To be able to select a good perfume, it is vital to have knowledge of the fragrance families and how each one complements the rest.
These are warm scents that remind you of forests and wood. They have a crisp, rich, and earthy smell to them. Some famous examples would be Gentleman by Givenchy and Tobacco Oud by Tom Ford.
All the warm and spicy fragrances come from this family, and they make for an ideal choice during chilly weather. Coco Chanel and Opium by YSL are great perfumes from this category.
These breezy scents take you back to the beach every time. Clean odors are liked by most because of how easy they are to pull off. Pear Inc. by Juliet Has A Gun and Orange Blossom Cologne by Jo Malone London are incredible perfumes from this family.
These perfumes make you smell like an exquisite bouquet. A floral aroma can feature the scent of single or multiple flowers. Bloom by Gucci and Voce Viva by Valentino make for great examples.
What is fragrance: Notes and Accords
Notes refer to the ingredients used in making a perfume. For instance, This perfume has a note of Sandalwood.
Accords are when different notes are blended together to create a new note, e.g., leather and amber.
Based on the fragrance pyramid, each perfume has Top, Middle, and Base notes that unveil themselves one by one after the application. The first notes you sense are the top notes, followed by the Middle notes, then the Base notes.
The right way to apply perfumes
- A few strategic spots amplify the scent, such as the neck, chest, wrists, and behind the ears. So try and stick to those areas.
- Avoid using perfume on your clothes as the stains might be impossible to get out.
- Do not go overboard in the hopes of making the scent last the entire day. Too much perfume will only get you the wrong kind of attention. Moreover, you can always reapply it throughout the day.
