Choosing the right perfume may seem very stressful, but it should not be! Read our guide to choosing the right perfume for you.
Find your notes
Each perfume or cologne consists of different "notes". These notes define the overall scent of a perfume. They consist of three different layers called top / head notes, base notes, middle / heart notes and all work together to create a specific scent. Some perfumes, for example, are considered floral and contain different scents such as rose, gardenia or geranium. Others may be a little more fruity, with tones of citrus or apples. Exotic scents contain spicy notes like anise or even cinnamon. Men's perfumes also have different notes. Musk scents have a heavier, more masculine tone, while other scents may have scents like pine or even leather notes. It is always a good idea to determine which types of cologne or perfume you prefer and then see what key notes they contain before making a purchase decision. You can learn more about the different notes used in the preparation of cologne and perfume, in order to get a better idea of which perfumes you think suit your tastes.
Perfumes come in four different levels of concentration. As the concentration increases, so does the price. Usually, colognes or perfumes with a high concentration have a stronger aroma and last longer. They may be a little expensive, but some people think the higher price is worth it.
The highest concentration is simply called Perfume the perfume . This level will usually last all day with a single application to the wrists or pulse points. The next lowest level is eau de parfum , which can usually take about six hours after application. The third level is called toilet water and is usually quite affordable and easy to find in retail stores. It usually requires more than one application throughout the day to last. The fourth and lowest perfume concentration is cologne water , which lasts only about two hours.
Try the perfume
Before you decide to buy any perfume, you should definitely do a few simple tests to make sure that it is something you want to wear and that you will enjoy it. The key, however, is to try a little perfume on your skin. Our skin has its own unique code of hormones and pheromones that can change slightly or even extremely the way a perfume smells. It is a good idea to spray a small amount on your wrists, wait a few minutes and then smell the scent on your skin. Sometimes, depending on your chemical composition (pH), the smell of the perfume can be enhanced or reduced. It can also change if you have a specific chemistry that does not match the scent mixture.
We understand that choosing a perfume on the internet could be a difficult task because you can not smell it through the screen. That's why we offer the opportunity to try any mysense fragrance on your skin through the perfume samples we offer.
