Where to Spray a Perfume?
More often than not, we spray perfume on our clothes. You should spray your scent on your body parts where the scent can easily mix with your natural body odor. The correct place to spray Cologne are:
1. Behind your ears
2. On your neck
3. On your wrist
Different Notes Of Perfumes That Lingers On You
Well, all the perfumes have three notes and the scent of these notes determine the fragrance and lasting effects of any cologne. Though most of us judge the fragrance by the first spray, the actual smell of a perfume is what lingers on your body after 30 minutes and more. Here are the three notes to look for while purchasing a perfume.
Top Note – Top Note is the first scent that you smell after spraying a perfume. Usually, the top note lasts only for 5-30 minutes and fades away beyond that. Though we mostly buy perfumes based on the top note scent, it’s a temporary fragrance that evaporates easily.
Middle Note – also called Heart notes, this is the blend of scents in a bottle of perfume that mixes with a person’s body and leaves a delicate and enchanting fragrance. The middle note scents take some time to blend and reflect their true fragrance. This mostly lasts for a couple of hours and can be felt after the top note evaporates.
Base Note – This note determines the holding power of any fragrance. The base note scents are strong and linger on the body for a really long time. The middle note and the base note together make the actual fragrance of any perfume.
How to Choose A Perfume
Now that you have done the basic schooling about perfume Notes, here’s what you got to do next. Don’t buy the perfume! Sounds crazy, right? It’s possible that you might not be able to get the right fragrance inside the store. You should walk out with your favorite fragrance samples and let them settle down. If you’re at the mall, I suggest completing the rest of the shopping, grabbing some snacks, even watching a movie. Once you’re done with the chores, sniff the fragrances again and you will get a clear idea about which of the many scents suits your natural body fragrance best.
The one that gives you the desired fragrance at the end is definitely the winner! Understand the notes, their combination and match them up with your preferences. Once all of that is sorted, you will surely get the scent of your dreams!
Pro Tip: Always buy small bottles of perfumes so that you can keep changing your scent and don’t get bored with just one fragrance. Look out for online Sale, Coupons, and Deals.
