5 Things you should consider before buying a Perfume
Perfumes are luxuries, yet must have for almost every person. They offer soothing luxury combined with blissful notes, all which speak volumes about the user’s choice without speaking a word. These are only but a few reasons why you should consider these reasons before buying perfume.
1. Know your preferences
Are you on the lookout for a new summer fragrance? Are you looking to change up your signature scent or trying to find something ideal for work, or just a perfume with the perfect day to evening transition? Either way, it’s extremely important to consider your lifestyle also, are you a working professional, a student, or just someone who likes to go scent shopping?
It’s important when purchasing a perfume to consider not only your life but also personal habits and personality, as they are sure to be reflective of the kind of perfume you end up buying.
2. Keep those pesky testing strips-even after testing
While on the lookout for which perfume to buy, remember that testing strips are ideal for sniffing and then deciding, as the wait allows for the base notes to show up. But remember when testing out a bunch of different fragrances to keep the tester strips handy as the base notes as you may get confused after smelling a lot of them. Also, they will help re-visit the scent long after you may have made different sniff tests.
However, it is also recommended to always test out the fragrance after trying it out onto your skin, ideally on a pulse point.
This way it reacts with the skin’s Ph level and lets you know whether or not an ideal match. If it still smells good in the after effect, then buy it.
3. The scent of a woman might not be “your” scent
The ideal perfume for one might not be the same for another. Also, the same fragrance spritzed on one person might smell different from another. This means that the combination of accords or notes mixed with the body’s oil, and combined with its existing Ph level, might result in a subtle yet noticeable change.
So it’s best to get samples and also avoid using any other scented lotions or body wash when out perfume shopping.
4. Brands are a good indicator of success
Also, niche perfumes are in and so worth the price tag! Brands have come a long way in offering value for the fragrance.
For example, there was once upon a time in the 90s when owning a Tommy Hilfiger perfume was the coolest thing ever. Also, niche perfumes are also another choice that has diversified and come a long way since the 90s, so give those a try. They’re famous for offering unisex choices, with the added bonus of buying something distinctive and unique.
5. Be on the lookout
Look for deals or packages/gift sets that you don’t need as perfumes are often combined with other accessories that you might not even need. Buy the fragrance size ideal for you and there’s really no need to purchase the deodorant spray if you already have one. However, they do make a unique gift set ideal for any occasion.
