Chlorine has figured out 5 ways to make the right choice. Follow these simple principles to grab the right product.
1. Select The Right Perfume: Stop After Three Tests
We cannot smell more than three perfumes at a time. With more scents, our senses simply begin to fade away. Smelling coffee beans or menthol won’t help either, as previously thought. The simple reason is, both methanol and coffee beans are fragrances as well. So, to select the right scent, give yourself a break after testing at most 3 perfumes.
2. Select the Right Perfume: A Shallow and Quick Breath
Seems weird but smelling perfume with a shallow and quick breath gives a better identification.
3. Test the Perfume on Your Skin
Perfumes should be smelled on our own skin, not on paper strips, which are often available in perfumeries or on the bottle cap. After all, it is about checking how the scent will present in combination with the natural scent of our body.
4. Test The Scent Outside the Store
It is best to smell the perfume outside of the store. The simple reason is, the air inside the perfume shop is usually fragrant.
5. Allow the Scent to Settle on
It’s worth asking for perfume samples or sprinkling yourself with your dream fragrance and going through the next few stores on the list. Only when the scent settles on us a bit will we know how it works.
6. Perfume Stays Longer
Finally – as a bonus tip to make any perfume stay longer.
Dry skin absorbs oily substances faster and makes perfumes more volatile. That is why it is worth moisturizing the skin beforehand.
