LOVE wearing fragrance? Me too! So here are some tips on picking it,wearing it and how long it should last for you. When shopping for a fragrance bring a notepad to write down the brand names and what they smell like to you. Examples:floral,woodsy,musk,jasmine
Then start applying…on your wrists is best.You can’t sniff your neck if you apply it there.
DON’T rub your wrists together after you apply the fragrance to your body. I worked with Designer Diane Von Furstenberg and that was a no no she taught me. It ruins the fragrant essentials oils and essence of the perfume or cologne.
Don’t try more than 3 different fragrances at a time. Your sense of smell will be overwhelmed.
Those paper blotters strips or cards at the fragrance counter are meant to let you spray the fragrance on them instead of on you and sniff away. But they do not let you know how a fragrance will smell on your body.
Ask the sales associate if they have a shaker bottle of fresh coffee beans to smell between trying another fragrance. This does what cool sherbet does when you are fine dining to clear the taste on your tongue between meal courses.
You DON’T have to buy fragrance that day. You can wait and decide another day.
IF the sales associate offers you free samples…take them.Play with them at home.
You never know what you will discover!
Fragrance words of wisdom:
Fashion designer scents,Celebrity scents, top model scents and reality TV stars scents don’t make it better. Personally I have found some amazing fragrances through the years that were not on that list. And expensive does not make it any better. I was given a gift of Kim Kardashian perfume. It smelled awful but had a pretty bottle. You cannot wear the bottle.
My husband ended up using it as room deodorizer in his bathroom!!!
