Perfume is a mixture of fragrant essential oils and aromatic compounds. The use of perfume dates back to ancient civilisations, and perfume has been used for centuries as an artful way to express one’s self. It’s known that the sense of smell is a powerful method of triggering memories, so by wearing perfume, you’ll effectively remember people, places and moments.
Perfumes are usually associated with feelings of success, beauty and power. With the right perfume, you can make a great first impression or create a mood when needed. People in ancient times were always wearing perfume, and it is thought that Egyptians were the first to use perfumes in daily life.
Most ancient people used perfumes for religious purposes and rituals too. However, we don’t know when people started using perfumes recreationally, but we do know that in ancient Rome, oils and wines were popular for this purpose.
How to Choose Which Perfume is Right For you
Choosing the right perfume can be a difficult task. It is not just about picking up one that smells good to you, but finding the one that suits your personality and mood. While your personal preference is the most important factor in choosing perfume, it is also important to consider what those around you will think, as they’ll be able to smell it too.
We should keep in mind that people will smell our perfume when we are around them, which means they will give feedback on what they like or dislike about it. This means that there are two major factors to consider when choosing which perfume is right for you: your own preferences and the fragrance’s sillage, in how strong the fragrance is, and if it’s strong enough for other people to smell.
Tips on How To Apply Perfume and Where To Apply It
Applying perfume is about the sensation of the fragrance on your skin. The key to success is for you to choose a perfume that suits your individual taste and which you enjoy smelling. You should then learn how to apply it in order to maximise its effect.
– Try different combinations of body lotion, soap, shampoo, and powder so that the fragrance is not masked by these products. It’s recommended to use mild smelling lotions, and beauty products when wanting to wear perfume, so it doesn’t end up being masked by your other products.
– Apply perfume before dressing, if possible, because clothes will absorb the scent. I personally prefer to apply my perfume as the last step in my routine, as it’s a good finishing step, but if you’re using perfumed body lotion, it might be a good idea to apply the lotion first, and then the fragrance before the lotion has fully absorbed.
– Apply your perfume to the pulse points on the body. When applying your perfume to the pulse points on your body, you are maximising the power of your chosen fragrance. The more of your body that is covered in fragrance, the more scent will be emitted into the air. Applying perfume to these areas also makes it easier for people who are close to you to smell it.
If you like to intensify your fragrance, spritzing the air, and walking through the ‘mist’ is a great way to get an even spritz of your perfume all over, especially your hair. You can actually buy specific fragranced hair mists, and they’re designed to leave your hair beautifully scented for hours and help to layer your fragrance as much as possible.
