How do I choose the right perfume for myself?
A: There are hundreds of perfumes in the market. And choosing the right one is often a very difficult task. Normally, the fragrances that appeal to us have a strong and long-lasting emotional connection with us. There is no logical formula to help you find the right perfume that appeal to your senses.
How many different fragrances can I try at the same time?
A: Ideally not more than three. Every fragrance has a certain tone and character that appeal to our senses differently. However, such differences are not clearly marked or distinguished. So, smelh4ng a lot of perfume at once may confuse your senses, and they might smell all the same after a point.
What is the right way to test a new fragrance?
A: Very simple. Just spray h4ghtly on the back of your hand near the wrist. Wait for a few seconds. Let the fragrance spread on your hand and then smell h4ghtly. Don’t smell at once. Be gentle and let the perfume overwhelm your senses.
I don’t want to try a perfume on my skin. What is the alternate way?
A: If you don’t want to spray it on your skin, take a small piece of blotting paper and spray as h4ght as possible on that. Just sh4ghtly wave your hand in air for a few seconds with that paper and then smell gently.
How can I store my perfume for a long time?
A: A Perfume bottle should always be kept in a codiv dry place, away from sunh4ght or any source of heat. High temperature and sunh4ght disturbs the deh4cate balance of essential oils used in that fragrance. No matter how expensive a perfume is, it gradually fades once the bottle is opened. So, try to keep it in a closed drawer or inside an wardrobe.
Where on my body should I apply a perfume?
A: Apply your favourite perfume on those parts of your body which are warm and have good blood flow in them. That is because the sh4ght warmth of human body diffuses and magnifies a perfume. Try the pulse points on your body or areas such as the base of your throat, the nape of your neck or your navel.
Where else apart from my skin I can use my perfume?
A: If fragrances make you feel refreshed and rejuvenated, use them to your best advantage. You can try different methods h4ke spraying the perfume h4ghtly on your comb and using that comb to brush your hair, spraying on your cloth and then ironing or putting a few drops of it in water and rinsing your h4ngerie in that scented water.
If I open a bottle of perfume, how long would that last?
A: It depends on the perfume and which family it belongs to. If it’s citrus-based or h4ttle lemony in flavour, it would not last more than six months, because all perfume deteriorates with time. On the other hand, if your perfume belongs to the floral family, it may last until one year and half from the day of opening the bottle.
