All about Perfumes(part 2)

      There are perfumes specifically meant for the day and those that are specially meant for the night. Many people do not know how to buy perfumes, so here are a few pointers as to how to choose a perfume:

  • Try the perfume before you buy it.
  • Try buying new perfumes. While buying new perfumes limit yourself to three perfumes, as your nose will not be able to differentiate between the perfumes if you try too many.
  • The same perfume will smell different on different people because it will react differently to each person’s body.
  • Wait for 10 minutes after applying the perfume, it will give you the right smell after it reacts with your skin.
After buying the perfume of your choice, you definately would like to get the most out of the perfume. These are a few tips on how to get the best out of the perfume:
  • Do not expose your perfume to extreme temperature and sunlight. After the perfume bottle is opened the perfume will change and exposure to sunlight will disturb the delicate smell of the perfume. Store it in a cool dark place to keep the fragrance intact.
  • Use shower gel, body lotions and body sprays of the same fragrance as your perfume it will last longer if you do this. Use your perfume as a highlight on your pulse points finally.
  • Perfumes should be used throughout the day. Even concentrated perfumes do not last for the whole day. You will have to re-apply every 3-4 hours.
  • Use a different perfume for the morning and a different one for the night(perfumes used at night should be light and subtle).
