Although it might be an obvious thing to some people, not everyone knows what they should be aware of when they go out to buy a fragrance. After all, if it was all so easy, wouldn’t everyone be wearing the same thing? Well that’s why there’s so much variety. Everyone has different tastes and different ideas of what they’d like to to wear, but a handful of criteria are able to unify these thoughts. The following four points are what you should be considering when buying a fragrance.
- Scent. First things first, you’re looking for the one which smells the best, after all, this is the whole point. Scent should be at the top of the priority list for fragrance and ensure that you check with someone else that it smells as good as you think it does, before you decide to buy. They are always occasions when you regret it, if you rush this process.
- How long-lasting it is. Decide whether you’re looking for something everyday – which will last you a good few hours, without wearing thing – or a fragrance which is only for special occasions – which tends to be more expensive, but is more of a boost scent for infrequent times when you’re specifically out to impress. Ask to find out whether the aroma you’d like is a long-lasting one or not.
- Tone. A lot of people forget to consider how the time of year has an effect on what fragrance you wear. You should be aiming to match your scent with the time of year, so that there isn’t too much of a contrast between yourself and the surroundings. For example, summery weather often suits fruity tones, whereas autumnal periods might require more woody or musky fragrances. Pick and choose carefully.
- Size. Of course, it would be ridiculous to consider all of the above points, if you can’t afford to buy the specific perfume you’d like in a reasonable quantity. Consider the price depending on how large the bottles are. Once you’ve done this, you will soon find yourself narrowing down your options, until the right one makes itself known.
