How to choose your own perfume(2)




1.   Weather: Weather is the essential consideration when choosing a perfume. A perfume used in different places will have different smell. A perfume teacher called Laurence said Chanel No. 5 is her favorite one. She will dub it every day when she goes out in France. However, she went to Tokyo for traveling with Chanel No.5 on her as usual, she found out the smell was not as attractive as in France. The humid weather in Asia is quite different from the dry and cold continent.
      As a result, weather should be put into consideration when choosing a perfume.

2.   Your own taste: some young girls would prefer floral, fruity scents, or sweet smell such as chocolate, caramel. Narrow down the range and delete what you don’t like. For example, if you don’t like fruity. You can save more time on looking for other perfumes that you have interest in.


    3.    Perfume Notes:Search for the perfume description and ingredient, 
        including the top notes, middle notes   and base notes. This is just a consideration. 
        the best way is to look at the description first and smell it afterwards.



   4. Wear suitable perfumes to different occasions: some people would 
     just use one perfume to all kinds of occasions. However, some strong-smelled 
     perfume is not suitable for working.  for examples,  wear Tommy girl when 
     going  picnicking, wear Coco Mademosielle when going to dance at clubs.


   5. What impression you want to show: Clothes is the first code that you can 
    impress people, then it's your behavior. But perfume is the subconscious impression 
    to others.  you can decide what feelings you want to express like sweet, professional,
    or cool.


  6. Bottle- packaging and bottle are the fastest way to attract consumer.  
    Some people would want to collect perfume bottles. 
    If you like the perfume bottle as well as the bottle. Don't think twice, buy it!!!

How to choose your own perfume(1)

There are 300 hundred kinds of perfumes being launched every year. People are attracted by their advertisement at first glance and then taste them to see whether they like them or not.

How to choose your own perfume seems like a difficult challenge. Everyone has different mood

I think I am a perfume beginner. Whenever I walked into the perfume section of department store, I don’t know where to start; so I ended up wasting a lot of time taste them one by one.

Since my sister is now a perfumer now. I asked her for some tips about choosing my suitable perfume.

She said everyone who chooses perfume at beginning may experience the so called’’ exploration period’’. Some people would just choose perfumes by advertisement or perfume sellers, it’s a risk to do that because they may regret after they bought it.

Some other people will choose classic perfumes such as Chanel 5, Shalimar, Opium, L’air du Temp. That is a good way but these classics are not always suitable for everyone, neither being used every day. Or you can choose some perfumes that will definitely be accepted by public; almost everyone gave good comments on them. For example, CK one, L'eau d'issey.

There are 6 tips that my sister told me.

The scent I hate, the bottle I like


Chloe Eau de Parfum by Chloe was launched in 2008.
I really like the bottle that created by Patrick Veillet; he gave the perfume a romantic image.
The black and white ad campaign also caught my eyes when reading magazines. 


Top Notes

I was exited to smell Chloe Eau de Parfum, but this let me down; it is not outstanding like the bottle.


Firstly, I smelled rose which was very artificial and pungent, the smell could not disappear 
even it was over 24 hours. I tried to wash it away but I couldn't. It is a nightmare that 
wear the perfume you don't like for whole day and couldn't get rid of it.
Although I don't like this scent, one of my friends wear it everyday.
Now I believe perfume is very subjective. Everyone has different taste on perfumes, 
one of my friends loves the perfume very much. She even bought chloe Eau de Toilette Spray.
All I want to do is asking my friend to give the bottle when she finish the Chloe Eau de Parfum.
