Had you been content using your deodorant all these years and never invested in a perfume? Well, you are not the only one in this category of people. Now, that you have decided in purchasing a branded perfume, it is important to ensure that you make the right choice in the same. The market is flooded with branded fragrances from leading designers and beauty care houses. Here are some important tips that will help you in selecting the right branded perfumes:
Try Perfumes Right in The Morning:
If you love your bed and are a late riser, you will have to change this habit for days when you go perfume shopping. It is recommended to reach the cosmetic store or department right in the morning to try different kinds of perfumes. It is believed that after a night’s sleep, all the senses including the olfactory senses get better. It is possible to detect the various notes in the fragrance effectively. Not only that, you will also be able to understand the subtleties that the perfume has.
Coffee Beans for Perfume Selection:
The salesman/woman at the perfume counter will ask you to test one perfume after the other. What happens after sniffing 2-3 perfumes is that the nose gets completely blocked and you cannot make much difference in the applied perfumes. This is the reason, you will find that standard perfumeries have bottles of coffee bean seeds which the customer is asked to sniff between sniffing perfumes. On smelling coffee beans, the sense of smell is reset. Each and every subtle note of the perfume can be understood by this process.
Don’t Hurry in Purchasing a Branded Perfume:
You know that branded perfumes are not cheap. This is the reason it is recommended not to hurry through the process of perfume buying. Do not make any decision just after spraying the perfume on the skin. Wait for minimum 15-20 minutes as in this time, the alcohol from the perfume evaporates and the various notes of the perfume start emerging. Infact good fragrances might have 3-4 underlying notes. Give time till the last note emerges. If you still like the fragrance, you can purchase it. Also while waiting for the notes to emanate, do not rub the area where the perfume is applied as it will lead to breaking of the perfume molecules and no result will be obtained in the same.
Time of Wearing The Fragrance:
You might not know but all kinds of perfumes cannot be worn any time. There are specific fragrances for specific times. Along with the time factor, the lifestyle that you lead will also decide your perfume selection. For instance, if you are looking for a perfume that you can wear almost all the time for daily use, settle for scents which are high on botanical notes like ‘floral’ or ‘mandarin’. For evenings, heavier notes are preferred including ‘musk’, ‘vanilla’, ‘cardamom’ etc.
With coming of various online cosmetic stores, branded perfumes are no longer a desire that you need to resist because of the price factor. Majority of these stores have best collections of branded and designer fragrances of leading brands across the globe. Attractive discounts are also available on the products making them quite affordable for the general masses. Do some research on different kinds of perfumes before you make the final plunge.
