It makes scents

Most of us adore perfume but as you can’t actually smell it on yourself (no matter how you contort your body or try to trick your nose, it just isn’t going to work!) choosing the right scent can be difficult. Personally, I tend to find one I like and stick to it until the bottle runs out or someone buys me a new one (hint, hint: are you listening dear?).

But here are some tips to make it slightly more of an exact science.

  • DO wear more perfume if you have dry skin. Scent needs oils to last.
  • DO wear stronger scents in cold weather. Cold reduces a scent’s strength.
  • DO wait ten minutes before deciding to buy a new scent.
  • DO purchase a new scent late in the day, when your sense of smell is sharper.
  • DO try scents on your own skin, as everyone’s skin chemistry is different.
  • DO choose what complements your natural body odour.
  • DO apply perfume right after you shower or bathe. Your pores will be open and soak up the scent.
  • DON’T use deodorant soap where perfume is applied.
  • DON’T use perfume near pearl or costume jewellery. The alcohol in perfumes can cause pearls to yellow and can strip the coating off jewellery.
  • DON’T sample more than two or three new scents at a time. Your olfactory senses will become confused.
  • DON’T stick to one fragrance all year long. Temperatures affect the intensity of fragrance.
