Choosing a scent is an art that can be learned throughout your life. Choosing the right perfume that will become your favorite is always not easy, because this will require not only emotions and preferences. Experience and knowledge are required.

How to choose a perfume?
When choosing a perfume, one should not rush, and therefore, first you should decide which scent is your favorite – for example, floral or oriental.

Another must-see factor is skin type. The scent always reacts to the smell and type of skin, body temperature, weather – all this affects its durability and intensity.
So, having oily skin, it is preferable to choose light floral and citrus aromas,
Dry skin – woody, musky.
For dry skin, it is advisable to moisturize the points of application of the scent to prolong their sound.
Fragrances last longer on oily skin. When choosing a perfume composition, the age of a woman is a controversial issue, although it is quite reasonable. It is known that perfumers, when creating their masterpieces, are guided by several age groups, but life usually makes its own adjustments.
If you need to choose a perfume for a girl, then you should pay attention to brighter and bolder fragrances.
But adult ladies, instead of complex aldehyde fragrances, are happy to wear light and delicate ones.
Harmonious sensual aromas are considered the optimal choice for those who are 35-45 years old.
For example, the floral symphony of the perfumery water ANTICIPATE, in the heart of which, in a halo of pink pepper and ylang-ylang, wonderful flowers are combined: modest and passionate – lily of the valley and tuberose, exciting and tender – jasmine and violet.
For a long time, there new have been certain rules for applying scent to skin and clothing. Areas of the body that you can apply a drop of perfume or spray with perfume or eau de toilette are pulse points: just below the earlobes, wrists, right and left sides of the neck, the bend of the elbow, under the knees, the depression between the collarbones, the chest. If there is a desire to add aroma to clothes, then you need to spray eau de toilette in front of you and enter this cloud or apply it to the hem of the dress. To select a perfume scent, it is recommended to test a maximum of 3-4 scents and in no case apply several scents on the wrist of one hand.
The first step to comprehending a scent is a bottle that has a faint scent. If you like it, then the aroma must be applied to the test paper (blotter) and after 10 seconds, which are needed for the alcohol to disappear, inhale the aroma. If you have a good impression, then it is worth applying the fragrance to the skin of the wrist, but not rubbing the skin, as this destroys the molecules and changes the fragrance. At the same time, the skin must be clean, that is, without traces of body cream or hand cream with perfume or other perfumes that will affect the sense of smell. Only 30 minutes after applying the fragrance to the skin, you can understand how it unfolds, mixing with the natural scent of a person.
However, in order to determine the persistence of a perfume, it will take time – from 2 to 24 hours, which depends on what concentration of fragrance the choice falls on: cologne, eau de toilette, eau de parfum, perfume.
Every time you get to know a new perfume, you need to pause and breathe in the smell of coffee beans. If testing a certain scent caused a slight headache, you should immediately say goodbye to it, because the right scent is the one that we love and do not notice, it is so comfortable and friendly to us.
