Humans have always been intrigued by different Aroma’s and smell’s, since the dawn of time from Cleopatra to Marie Antoinette. Being able to manipulate and create different fragrances, colognes and perfumes have become a real trend and passion now a days. Yet we still have arguable mis concepts of these wonder smells. Here are 4 of the most common mix concepts…
The proper way to apply fragrance
Contrary to rumored beliefs the theory ” apply fragrance in a cloud and walking threw it” is not 100% accurate. The best way to actually apply fragrance to your skin is directly and when skin is totally dry. No rubbing either, it reduces the time the scent will stick around as it break down the oils.
Expensive Equals better quality
Often we tend to go with price thinking it reflects quality. In this case , it might not be accurate. Every high end designer has a scent that’s been marketed and branded. Sometimes we end up paying for the name instead of quality. Cheaper fragrances also have some great aromas and oil mixes as ingredients.
Store sample vs at home
When you try a scent at the store on a piece of paper it doesn’t necessarily represent the smell entirely. It won’t be identical once you arrive home. When fragrances mix with each individual’s natural body oil it customizes and changes the fragrance slightly.
Colognes Fragrances and genders
Often it is believed that woman wear perfume and men must wear cologne. The distinction between perfume and cologne is referred to the concentration amount. Men wear cologne since its more concentrated in oils and woman wear perfume which is more gentle, soft and subtle at times. Altought recent trends have brought the two to mix up and become non-gender related.
