Why wear perfume?

News » Lifestyle


Just as you have different styles of clothing for different occasions and seasons, you should also have a wardrobe of scents to match your moods and the season.

Deciding which perfume to wear has a lot to do with personal preference and mood. Some women prefer sticking with one signature scent, while others like to change things up, depending on the occasion or the season.  However,  perfume is a mixture of fragrant essential oils and aroma compounds, fixatives, and solvents used to give the human body, animals, objects, and living spaces a pleasant scent. The truth is that perfumes enhance your sartorial elegance and add a touch of class to your brand as a person.

Here is some perfume basics that you need to know:

 Choosing Scents for the seasons

Choose light floral and citrus scents for spring and summer. Heavier scents can be overpowering during the hotter days, especially when they mix with body sweat.

Pick scents that are fresh and invigorating for the hottest days. Wearing citrus or a synthetic “ocean breeze” type of scent will actually make you feel cooler.

Choose heavier scents such as musk and spice for winter wear. Perfumes with oriental notes such as sandalwood and patchouli work well for winter months.

Choosing a Scent for the occasion

Choose a sophisticated but light perfume for everyday and office wear. Many synthetic blends strike just the right note for a professional woman.

Be a little daring for dates and nights on the town. Experiment with perfumes that have an oriental base such as musk or civet.

Suit your perfume to the season, as well as, the occasion. Choose lighter perfumes for warmer weather, and heavier notes for winter wear.

Wear sophisticated and romantic floras for weddings and special functions.

Do not over spray

The important thing is that no matter what your situation, you must not over spray the perfume. Keep it subtle, two or three sprays are all you need. Of course, use your judgment, but too little is better than too much here. If you have a ‘splash’ perfume that does not spray, just put your index finger over the bottle opening and tip the bottle. That way, you will not pour too much on your body. Now, there is no excuse for not wearing your perfume right.
