Who doesn’t like to smell nice? Perfumes are a long-lasting way to ensure you smell clean, sophisticated, and attractive. While they traditionally come in spray forms, there are also other forms, such as oils and sticks. Here are some perfumes that we recommend.
Buying a New Perfume
Here are some things to consider:
- Concentration: Perfumes come in different concentrations, each with its own name. Perfume, or parfum, contains 20-30% concentration; eau de parfum contains 15-20%; eau de toilette contains 5-15%; eau de cologna contains 2-4%; and eau fraiche contains 1-3%. When buying a perfume, keep in mind how long you will want the fragrance to last. The more concentrated the formula, the longer the scent should last.
- Fragrance Family: Perfumes can focus on a single fragrance family or mix and match between them. Fragrance families usually include floral, citrus, or earthy scents. For example, you could have a perfume that has hints of both lemon and the ocean.
- Size: Perfumes come in a variety of sizes, with larger perfumes tending to cost more. If you aren’t sure what scent you want to wear or aren’t ready to commit to one fragrance, there are sample sets available. For a nice present, you can also purchase a gift set.
