All You Need to Know about Perfumes

Have you ever dived deep into the existence of the little perfume bottle that sits on your dresser? It has a lot of stories to tell!

Perfumes first came into existence about 5000 years ago in Mesopotamia. It was a widespread practice to burn fragrant wood during ceremonies with the idea that the intense aromatic smoke would make the gods happy!

The Connection between Your Skin’s Natural Oils and Perfumes

Your skin’s natural oils interact with the perfume, causing it to smell different on every person. Therefore, it’s always a good idea to test a perfume before you buy it! You need to check the perfume’s top, mild and base notes to see how it interacts with your skin.

The Notes

The top notes of a perfume are what you first smell. These notes last for about 10 minutes. The mid notes continue for about 20 minutes, and the base notes will slowly appear after 30 minutes. The base notes are the ones that will linger on your skin. This phase is called the ‘dry down’ and therefore it’s essential to wait for this stage before you buy your perfume.

How to Spray Your Perfume 

Where you apply perfume on your body is very important.Pulse points are best spots to spritz your perfume – put a little behind your ear, on your wrist or inside your elbow. Due to the warmth of your blood, these spots let the perfume slowly settle into your skin and spread the fragrance, so you can smell all the notes as it settles down completely.

Decide on the Kind of Perfume You Wish to Buy 

Before buying a perfume, you need to decide on the kind of scent you wish to get! Do you prefer a light fragrance or a strong one?

If you like to reapply your perfume throughout the day, then a light fragrance would do just fine.You could pick an Eau de Toilette (EDT) or cologne that lasts for about four hours.

If you like a stronger fragrance, you could go in for an Eau de Parfum (EDP) that lasts for about eight hours, or for a perfume that lingers on for about 20 hours.

Skinnperfume is EDPs – a great option if you’re looking for a perfume that would last longer.

Perfumes define you! Therefore, it’s very important to know everything about a perfume before you decide to buy it. There are perfumes for every occasion and the right choice can get you noticed and make a lingering impression.
