The climate, different tastes, and varying customs: know what to consider when choosing a perfume.
Choosing a fragrance is very personal. The best way to find the ones you like is by experimenting and taking the time to test on your skin. Each and every one of us has our unique scent. The same perfume can have different effects and variations from one skin to another.
It is also worth remembering that each perfume has a certain durability on the skin. If you like scents that stay on for longer, Eau de Parfum contains a more concentrated essence and therefore, has stronger fixing power. On the other hand, if you prefer lighter scents, choosing cologne or body spray are good options.
You should consider the season and weather conditions, too, as the temperature of the day interferes with the adherence of your fragrance to the skin.
It’s Cold Outside
On colder days, the body transpires less, and the perfume evaporates and exhales in smaller quantities. Aromas with sweeter notes are the right choice for the winter months. A touch of opulent, denser flowers and warmer spices are a great suggestion.
For the perfect combination on those cold, winter days, DedCool Uni-Sex + Vegan Fragrance has the ideal winter scent.
If the weather is milder, woody amber can give you a warmer and cozier sensation. The Body Shop’s Vanilla Eau de Toilette is an excellent option with its warm and long-lasting notes. Besides, it is 100% vegan.
You will sweat more on warmer days. This reaction causes the skin to exhale the fragrance in greater quantity, highlighting all the perfumes notes. The best options for the summer are fresh floral, citrus, and aromatic scents. They have lighter notes for warmer days.
A delightful choice is LUSH Gorilla Perfume, Rentless. It’s a mix of sweet and zesty combination with a mystical and earthly note, great for a summer’s day. Speaking of which, Aura Some Equilibrium Bottle 75 has a delicate and light springtime note, boosting creativity and good energy flow.
