Finding your signature scent is a special occasion; it’s a personal choice that feels right for you in so many ways! But there are several factors to be explored if you want to get there. So, whether you’re starting your journey into the world of fragrances or you’re just bored of the scent you always reach for, our experts here at top10perfume are here to help. Welcome to our ultimate guide on choosing the right perfume for you!
1. Don’t try too many fragrances in one go shopping
Even if you have made it your mission to find your new signature aroma, it’s worth limiting the amount you try at one time to a maximum of three, that is perfect. You should test your chosen fragrances on different areas of your skin for at least 24 hours before you make a decision. This way, you can really understand and appreciate how the scent will develop on your skin.
2. Don’t rush in the buying process
When you first spray perfume, the initial notes you will experience are known as ‘top notes’. These will exist for a while, but then they will develop into the middle notes. Then finally, this will dry down into the longer-lasting base notes. Never decide whether a fragrance is the one for you from the first spray, as you need the time of developing scent to experience after the first spritz.
3. Understand Fragrance Notes And Families
Do you already have a collection of aromas? If so, what do they say about you? Are your scents bursting with warm, Oriental notes? Do you favor florals? Or perhaps you adore the freshness, crisp of citrus? If so, you can use this knowledge as the basis of your search for a new fragrance. besides, you can explore fragrance families which are the opposite of your usual go-to if you are in the good mood for something totally new!
4. Follow Your Instincts
Ouds might be booming fancy and popularity flowers can your best friend’s top pick, but you should never select a scent based on other people’s opinions. It is a personal choice, so always go with what naturally appeals to your style and senses.
