Choosing A New Perfume

Wearing a perfume is not just to smell good but to express your feelings, attitude and your personality. Let your perfume talk about how you’re feeling today, and for that it is important that you go highly selective about what fragrance to use and when.

Don’t buy perfumes just by looking at the price tag or the decorative bottle; rather get some perfumes that can showcase your inner personality and your attitude.

Fragrances have also been found to have a deep impact on the brains of people, for instance lavender has a calming effect, and that’s the reason why aroma therapy is so popular today. So think of ways in which you can use your perfumes to your advantage.

When you go out shopping for a perfume, be sure that you have enough time on hand because it is no quick affair. In fact, if you really want to pick up the best perfumes you might have to devote a whole day to this activity, because after sniffing a few samples the fragrance sensors in your nose will shut down and you won’t be able to judge the perfume rightly.

After testing about four to five different samples, you surely need a little breather or else what you would smell would be a blend of the perfumes you’ve already tried. And even when you feel you have found the right perfume don’t rush in to buy it, just take a coffee break and then return to check whether you are still sure about the perfume you just chose. In most cases you might feel it smells altogether different after a break.

The packing of a perfume has a lot to tell you, while the quality of the packing does speak about the quality of the perfume, the written information presented on the packing can also serve as a useful guide. The color scheme of the packaging usually indicates towards the overall tone of the fragrance.

For instance bright and multicolored packages indicate towards fruity fragrances, floral patterns in pastel colors point towards a floral fragrance, use of blue, black and dark red colors in the package is made for bold and sensuous fragrances and shades of dark brown or metallic finishes are generally used for exclusive and sophisticated scents. That’s just a general guide, and while it may be true for most perfumes you cannot guarantee it to stand true for all.
