They say that you are never fully dressed without a fragrance. The idea behind a fragrance is that it leaves a lasting impression – the right one, of course! Take a little time to find the right fragrance for you. It will be well worth it in the end. So, what do you need to know before buying a fragrance? Let’s take a look.
EDT or EDP?
There are a few choices on what strength of fragrance oils, but the main two you select from are EDT and EDP. And these stand for Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum. We’ve already looked in detail at the differences here, so head on over to the blog to find out what it all means.
Help It To Last Longer
We all want to spray our fragrance once and have it last as long as possible. There are two reasons for this –
- It saves money
- You don’t have to keep reapplying
Fragrance clings to your body if it is treated in the right way. The best way to extend the beautiful smell of your fragrance is to apply after a shower and after moisturising. Remember to keep the moisturiser in the same scent or unscented. You don’t want different scents clashing with each other. This is one of the most important things you need to know before buying a fragrance.
Understand Fragrance Notes
This is the one thing that stops people from buying the right fragrance more than any other. Picture the scene. You go to the fragrance counter of your favourite store and have a spray. You love it. You buy it. You take it home and for some reason it doesn’t smell the way you remember.
That reason is down to the notes. Again, we’ve written a good explanation of fragrance notes already. The short version is to let the fragrance sit on the skin for a few hours, smelling regularly. It will develop over time. Understand what it smells like straight away, after 5 minutes, after an hour and after a few hours. This will help you decide if it really is for you or not.
Where To Spray
And this is something else that will help you decide what fragrance is right for you. That means it is definitely something you need to know before buying a fragrance. Fragrance works better on the heat spots of the body. As you might expect, we’ve already written a blog about this. Spraying on the heat spots allows the fragrance to radiate and give off that smell to others as you walk by. As we mentioned at the start, this is all about leaving an impression.
