Are you planning to get a new fragrance? If you are, then a few things might be playing around in your head. Even though most of us had been to fragrance shopping before, it never seemed like we mastered the art of this kind of shopping. It is definitely much more tricky than shopping for clothes or other beauty essentials.
Below are some of the most common fragrance questions and the corresponding answers to them, to help you out in your next fragrance shopping trip:
What is the best tip for finding a new fragrance?
There are several types of perfumes to choose from; hence, it is completely understandable if you are having difficulty boiling down your options into one.
A trick to use to easily find a fragrance that you like is to go to smaller perfume houses. When you go into larger boutiques, you will be overwhelmed with options. But most smaller shops have their own unique fragrance style. You can therefore narrow down your options of fragrance according to the store’s “point of view” of how certain scents should be categorised.
EDT and EDP – what’s the difference?
These two differ in the concentration of oils in the formula, which will then determine how long the scent will last. An EDT has the highest amount of concentration of oils making it able to last for up to 4 hours. Of course, the higher the concentration of oil, the more expensive the fragrance can get.
How do you make your fragrance last longer?
There are several factors that contribute to either making the scent last or fizzle out easily. Generally, people with dry skin tend to absorb the scent for longer. But you can try layering in the fragrance with other sources of scent (such as lotion) to make it last longer than normal.
How do you store your fragrance to make it last?
The ideal storage spot for perfumes is somewhere cool and dark, and most especially away from the sunlight.
