There are no definite advice, just as there are no two identical people. Each smell is perceived differently. The same perfumes “sound” differently, depending on the color of the hair, skin type, temperament, season.
Recent studies have shown that aromatic addictions are associated with life experience, social status and character of a person. For example, floral options attract energetic people. Romantics and dreamers like warm and plant. Floral-fruity smell is chosen by cheerful and carefree natures.

If a man sees in himself a certain type or wants to match him, he will choose a smell, even if not suitable. It is noted that if a man’s perfume is successfully selected, it is a woman’s merit.
Men’s smells are always more stable and intense than women’s, thanks to special ingredients. Special components, perfumers call them “notes”, emphasize masculinity, strength and independence, restraint and calm. Often men express their personality through perfume.

Video tips and rules for choosing
To impress your companion, it is better to pick up natural odors. Time is changing and now brand creators are looking for not too simple and banal images for men. The compositions of perfumers each time become more complicated.
Choosing a perfume for a woman
People compare the choice of their own fragrance with magical activities. If guided by the contents of the bottle, and not the brand or type of bottle. To accurately and correctly make a choice, it is worth listening to the advice of perfumers.
- Go shopping is better in the morning. At this time, olfactory recipes are the most active and sensitive. By evening, the scent is dulled.
- The optimal period for choosing, a few days before menstruation. At this time, the perception of odors increases.
- Before going to the store, do not use perfume, deodorant or toilet water, it interrupts the smell and distracts.
- Better to buy in boutiques with a good reputation. Avoid random markets and underpasses. Sites selling perfumes do not always inspire confidence.
- It is recommended that you don’t smell more than 4 smells in one trip to the store, the olfactory receptors get tired and lose their sensitivity. You will not be able to fully feel the notes of aroma and its composition. If you are in a perfume shop, you will be offered a jar of coffee beans or cocoa beans.
- Between samples, inhale the smell, which will restore the susceptibility of the nose. Do not try to embrace the immense, do not try the whole assortment. If you could not find the perfume from the proposed limit, do not despair, return to the store the other day.
Choosing a perfume by style
It is generally accepted that brunettes will suit bright and sweet smells, but not very tart. Blonde, the owner of fair skin, fit with notes of fruit and freshness. Perfumers are advised to pick up graceful floral notes for fair-haired women who have a matte skin tone. Brown hair is perfect inimitable oriental perfume.
The color type is not the only argument when choosing. Take into account individual style, age and character. Under the tenderness and romance of a blonde, a strong and domineering woman may be hiding, and a brunette, who is seemingly strong-willed and strong, may turn out to be gentle and romantic in nature.
Not every brunette will have spicy or sweet options. For a young and mischievous lady, it is better to choose the aroma of freshness, tender and romantic nature - floral. A stylish and confident blonde with a strong character will be advised to pick up a perfume with chypre and woody notes.
Regardless of the color of the hair, but with a strong, maybe arrogant character, saturated, vibrant tones, sometimes similar to men's, are suitable. Oriental perfume will suit sultry and erotic ladies, and fresh or fruity tones will be suitable for gentle, romantic natures.
Key odor levels
As soon as we open the bottle, a sharp aroma is immediately felt, these are the top notes. You can not judge by this smell or coming from the inside of the lid, the true aroma appears 15 or 20 minutes after application to the skin. Only then can the true character of spirits be caught.
If the perfume is persistent, after application to the skin it is felt for another 20 hours, and after about 10 hours a subtle aroma remains - the aftertaste. If you liked the smell in three stages, you should think about buying.
Immediately interesting options do not apply to the skin. For a complete sensation, it is better to put a test on a special paper strip.
Apply perfume on a strip, wait a few seconds and smell the probe. Sniff at a distance of 2-3 cm, if the aroma triplets, put a drop of perfume on your wrist, smell it in 10 minutes to make sure how well it combines.
Do not grab a bottle with the contents immediately if you liked everything. Perfume is not going anywhere. This is not a cat and not dog. Take the test strip home with you. Do not rinse the perfumes on the skin to give the aroma the chance to open completely, noting how it changes throughout the day. If in this case you are not disappointed, the next day go to the store to purchase an attractive bottle.
