This article includes How to choose a perfume. I have several fragrances just on my dresser that I rotate through depending on the day and my mood. But not one that stands out as my signature scent, and there’s some that I don’t even use any more.
Just because I’ve kind of grown out of them. So I’ve learned a lot about fragrances over the past couple of months of sampling new scents, and I wanted to share some of the things that I’ve learned to help you hopefully. also, find your fresh signature scent so here are some tips to get you started on your own
Tip number one understands the terms to choose perfume. You know what the standard terms in the world of fragrance. Mean will help you narrow down what exactly you want ina fragrance.
So, first of all, let’s tackle o de toilette versus Aude perfume and excuse me for my awful French accent. So Oh de toilette is going to be lighter it has less of a concentration of perfume oils you can be more generous with it as you’re spraying it on.
But overall, it evaporates from the skin more quickly, and its top notes characterize it, and we’ll get into what records are in a little bit because this is a less concentrated scent. It is usually a more affordable option.
But you will need to reapply if you want the scent to last. Perfume is going to have more of a concentration of those perfume oils.
You’re going to have a little bit more of a layered scent with Eau de Parfum. It’s more characterized by the middle notes it will last longer and come off more reliable than an Eau de Toilette. However, it is still a little bit of a diluted version of just straight the terms knowing what the standard duration in the world of fragrance means will help you narrow down what exactly you want in a perfume.
So, first of all, let’s tackle o de toilette versus Aude perfume and excuse me for my awful French accent. So Oh de toilette is going to be lighter it has less of a concentration of perfume oils. You can be more generous with it as you’re spraying it on, but overall it evaporates from the skin more quickly, and its top notes characterize it, and we’ll get into what records are in a little bit because this is a less concentrated scent.

It will last longer and come off more reliable than an Eau de Toilette, but it is still a little bit of a diluted version of just straight Perfume or Perfume now when a product is just labeled Perfume or Perfume. This is going to have the highest concentrations of perfume oils, and it’s usually going to be the most expensive as well.
But you do not need as much product as the other two, and this lasts the longest it evaporates the slowest on the skin. You’re going to go through layers of sense. So it’ll take a little bit longer to get to the main vibe of the Perfume for me. Personally, when I’m looking for Perfume I do tend to stick to the Eau de Parfum region, it’s a little bit more affordable than straight-up Perfume.
But it’ll last longer, and it has more layers in the scent than just Oh de Toilette although during summer. I will wear some Eau de toilettes because it’s lighter and I feel like they perform best in the summer.
Now let’s get into what all these notes usually mean in the description of Perfume. If you’re reading it on the box or even online, you’ll see a description that consists of top notes, middle notes, and base notes. The top notes are what you’re going to smell right away. They are your first impression of the fragrance.
But they also evaporate quickly, and they’re not going to last very long. So it doesn’t develop much past those top notes. So the middle notes of a fragrance are going to be a little bit richer than the high notes, and they will last a bit longer as well.
Typically they’re more mellow and the main vibe of the Perfume. But they’re not going to reveal themselves until the top notes disappear. So the base notes support the middle notes. They work together to create the overall mood of the fragrance.
But the base notes are going to be a little bit heavier a little bit deeper. You’ll probably see more muskiness in the base notes, and they’re not going to start revealing themselves until you’ve worn the fragrance for a little bit about 30 minutes in.
So now that you understand these basic terms, you’ll be better equipped when reading descriptions of fragrances to narrow down. What you think you’ll actually like before testing them and if you have no idea what you like, then you can just start sniffing as a starting point and kind of keeping in mind. The notes that keep coming up with the fragrances that you like.
Tip number two is to choose a perfume. don’t overwhelm yourself. If you try to smell too many fragrances at once, they’re all going to run together, and your olfactory senses will be on overdrive. I would say they don’t test more than two to three max before taking a break.
let’s go the next tip on How to choose a perfume.
Test The Fragrance at Home
Tip number three is to choose a perfume. If you’re trying to find a signature scent that you’re going to be ready to wear every day test the fragrance at home. Instead of just in-store, I mentioned earlier how it can take some time for the notes of a scent to reveal themselves and how it kind of go through layers.
Which is why it’s so essential to actually spray at the fragrance on your skin and wear it around for a little bit. So you can get the full idea of what it smells like versus making a first impression judgment quickly in-store. You can use those little paper testers in the store to get your first impression of a fragrance.
But if you think that you like it, you’re going to want to wear it around for a little bit before actually investing in the full bottle. I love the idea of being able to try a fragrance with the newly popular try at home fragrance subscriptions like today’s sponsor scent box which allows you to pick out an experiment with a 30 day supply of a designer fragrance.
The scents come in these cute travel atomizers that hold eight milliliters of the fragrance of your choice. So you can give it a thorough testing before investing in a full bottle and this way you can test the scent over a month in different situations whether you’re just going to school or work or you’re out and about running errands.
See how it lasts throughout the day what I think sets scent box apart from the other similar subscriptions is that you get one free exchange per month. So if you get the scent, you picked out, and you’re like “mmm I don’t like this” you can send it back and get a new one for free within the same month.
You don’t have to wait for your next box to come for a new scent you also get the complete atomizer case with each fragrance that happens every month. So you’re not refilling the vials yourself and that way if you’re still working on a fragrance when a new one comes you don’t have to decide which one goes in the case like some of the competitor subscriptions.
Don’t Feel Pressured.
Tip number four is to choose a perfume. Don’t feel pressured to find the one fragrances will act differently from season to season because your body responds differently from season to season. Lighter scents can come off more reliable in the summer because your body is warmer whereas in winter. It’ll take a little bit more time for it to reveal all the notes.
So you might have a couple go twos that you rotate throughout the year, and that’s okay. Don’t feel pressured to find one and all MBO fragrance.
How And Where To Apply Your Fragrance
Tip number five. How and where to apply your fragrance to get the most out of it the best time to use a fragrance is when your skin is on the warmer side and
when it’s moist. So after a morning shower is perfect.
This will help intensify the fragrance and even make it last longer. Next, you’re going to want to spray your perfume on your pulse points you’ve probably heard this before. The reason is that this is where warmth emanates from your body, and these are all places on the body where you can feel your pulse.
So you want to go on either side of your neck on the wrists as well as in your inner elbows. Some people even spray behind the knees as well. I feel like it’s a little bit overkill. But you do you applying the fragrance on these pulse points where they are warmer. Will help it reveal itself better throughout the day lastly.
Don’t rub the fragrance and a lot of people will spray on their wrists and kind of go like this and then like this you can actually overheat the perfume by doing this and completely change the developing process, and also you’re causing some of the fragrance to evaporate when you do that.

* Young consumers are moving towards more modern ocean scents. They are unusual and intense and give a nautical feel. An excellent choice for the warmer months because of outdoor nature.
* Oriental varieties have a strong spicy aroma. The selection of this species is usually very personal and generally reserved for special events
