How To Choose The Perfect Perfume
It is not possible to wear perfume in one way. The art of wearing perfumes is very personal. You may like a scent on someone, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that it is perfect for you.
Perhaps you noticed that you used to love a certain perfume but no longer enjoy wearing it. Maybe your perfume is stronger on certain days than others. What is the real reason for this? What is the reason why perfumes change from one person to another?
The answer is body chemistry, which describes the unique and individual makeup of a person’s bodily functions. Your body chemistry is a key factor in choosing the right perfume.
So, how do you find the perfect perfume for your body? This is actually quite simple, and it takes patience. Your body’s bacteria, heat, oils, and chemistry all play a role in how a perfume diffuses as well as lasts on you. It can also influence the notes that emerge from the fragrance when it comes into contact with your skin.
These are additional factors that affect your perfume tone:
The type of skin you have
Your skin type is the first thing that will affect how a perfume smells. There is a simple rule to remember – is your skin oily or dry? You will need less perfume to make the scent last longer.
The pH of your skin
Each person has a natural skin pH. A general rule of thumb is that if your skin pH is too low (i.e., too basic), the skin won’t absorb the fragrance as well. Your skin should be slightly acidic.
Your body heat is another factor to consider. A higher basal temperature will result in a more concentrated pay-off.
Trial and Error
Like trying on shoes and dresses, no two styles are the same. While you might feel your scent is great, others may not like the unique blend of your skin’s natural oils with your chosen perfume. There is no single scent that will work for everyone. There are more than 400 olfactory receptors within our noses and each one is unique. It is important to choose a fragrance that people will love to smell.
How to pick a perfume that suits your needs
This is the fun part! Here’s how you choose a perfume. To smell the top notes of different perfumes, spray them into the air or onto a piece of paper. You can try a top note you like, and then put it on your wrist. The middle note will be revealed if you sniff it again after 20 minutes. You will like the base note if you can smell it after an hour. If not, you can buy the perfume. Don’t rush, and take your time to get to know the perfume.
