Perfume, like any other grooming product, is a part of your personality. It adds character and chutzpah to your overall personality and creates a unique identity. In fact, people can recognize you with the scent of your smell. It leaves a trail of fragrance wherever you pass and is one of the most attractive things you can wear on your body. Just as good makeup, hairdo, and clothes can catch the attention of an onlooker, similarly, your fragrance, too, can have a scintillating effect. Wearing perfume that matches you is like wearing your attitude. Indeed perfume can say more than words. Different types of fragrances suit different moods. The following are some tips to select the perfume:

How to Choose Fragrances

Notes - Every perfume has three notes - top note, middle note, and base. The top note is the one that evaporates quickly and, a little later, the middle note starts developing. Once these two notes have developed and settled the base note will emerge, which is the true scent of the perfume. This is how your fragrance will smell. The entire process will take a few minutes, approximately 10-15 minutes. Therefore, you should allow the fragrance to settle down before making a choice. We suggest you to test a perfume that matches you, so shop around for other things. This way the fragrance will get enough time to settle down.

Testing - Always test the fragrance on your skin, as it may smell different on a testing paper. Never try more than two fragrances at a time. If you try more, you will simply get confused and won`t be able to make a decision. If at all you wish to try more than two fragrances at a time, then do not smell them one after the other. Smell coffee beans in between to ensure that you do not get confused with the fragrance.

Seasons - Perfume attracts if it is worn according to the weather conditions and your mood. A perfume that matches you should not be worn everyday. Add variety to your collection of fragrances. Different seasons require different types of scents. The way you dress up differently for different occasions, similarly, your perfume, too, should be different. You will not wear your beach clothes to an evening party, right? The same rule applies here as well. Remember that hot and humid weather condition will lead to evaporation of the scent. However, cool weather condition will strengthen the scent. Humidity will intensify the fragrance.

Normally when you are buying perfume from an online shop or online perfumes you can not test it so always prefer a branded perfume and one such site which deals in branded perfumes.
