How to Choose Best Perfume for Women?

Every perfume has its uniqueness and fragrance. Perfume shopping can be overwhelming, considering the different aromas and scents in the market. You would need to consider many factors while zeroing down on the scent that blends with your personality. This guide will help you to understand how to choose the right perfume.

 

Understand the different fragrances(keynotes) within the perfume

In every perfume, there are three fragrance notes. The first note is the aroma you get when you spray the perfume initially. It generally lasts for around 15-20 minutes, after which it moves to the heart or middle note that lasts for a few hours. The final note or bottom note are the heavy or rich scents that last until the end of the day.

 

Try it outside

The fragrance of a perfume indoors is different from the outdoors. To understand the real scent, you should always take the aroma out. You can choose to spray a bit on a tester strip and understand the fragrance’s difference indoors and outdoors.

 

Wear it on for better understanding

The basic rule of perfume shopping is never to go with the initial scent. Experts recommend that you always test a particular fragrance by spraying it on for a few hours before deciding to buy it. You can either spray it in your wrists’ pressure points and behind the ears and wear it for the day. It will help you to understand the natural fragrance of the perfume.

 

Have different perfumes for every season

Yes, you read it right. Not every scent is a perfect fit for every season. For example, ingredients like jasmine or vanilla are known to be single scent and light, making them ideal for summer. During the winters, you need to have exotic, spicy, and rich fragrances.

 

Choose a perfume that suits your personality.

A person should choose a perfume that blends in with his/her personality. It should bring out the true reflection and scent of the individual. For example, a shy person would not be an ideal candidate for a floral fragrance. Similarly, a light perfume may not suit a party going girl. An independent woman needs a scent that has a bold fragrance. Hence, paying attention to the aroma will let you know if the perfume is meant for you or not.

 

Sniff the bottle first

The first impression is the last. However, the first impression will always help you understand if you would like to consider the particular fragrance or not when it comes to perfumes. Before buying a perfume, if there is a tester, make sure you sniff the bottle first.

 

Learn to compare fragrances alongside each other

No two fragrances are the same; that is why it is always advisable to compare two different scents to see which one may go well with you. If you have doubts, then you can always take the help of the person behind the counter.

 

Consider trying out samples if it’s available

Many places either sell or give away samples. If you are not sure which perfume is right for you, opt to buy or use a sample before purchasing a bottle. It will help you to understand if the fragrance will suit you or not.

 

Conclusion

No matter whether you are going to your office or on a special occasion, putting the right perfume is necessary. Not only it will make you more attractive but also keep your mood fresh.

If you’re seeking for the recommendation, then the Flower bomb by Viktor & Rolf for Women, Eau de Parfum is undoubtedly a clear winner in this list. It has a very feminine, warm, and balanced fragrance. It is a mood refresher and enhances, making it the right choice for every working woman.  With good longevity and sillage, this is one of the best perfumes for a woman.
