|Know The Basics Of Men’s Perfume by theyouth123: 6:06pm On Sep 11|
Buying the right men’s perfume cannot be much of a difficult task if one knows what exactly to buy and how to pick the one which will be suitable for them. Before buying a perfume, one should be confident about what kind of fragrance they want to buy. There are varieties of fragrance that are available these days. Men should always go for a fragrance which will suit their personality.
Perfume for men has a major and basic classification and one should know the three of them. There is one which is least concentrated and there are others which are more concentrated. Depending on concentration they can be eau de cologne, eau de toilette and eau de parfum. As per the concentration, eau de cologne will last much lesser than that of eau de toilette and eau de parfum. The perfume is something which is the densest among all varieties and as because they have high concentration, they are also expensive when it comes to the price tag.
There are certain scent families that men should be aware of if they want to find out which fragrance suits them the best. They are as follows:
Fougère or Fern
Chypre or Cyprus
Now how will one know that which fragrance will be the most suitable for them? Well, for that one has to keep experimenting till they tick the right chord. One can also choose some lighter fragrance for the day and some deeper and darker ones for the night. In fact, for men the night perfume has to be woody, musky or spicy. But again, one should always choose depending on what smell they will like to wear. While buying perfumes, one should remember that fragrances do not last forever on the shelf and one should not keep them either near the sunlight or in spaces which have heavy moisture concentration like the bathroom. Keeping them in the bedroom is the best option.
Now how can one use a perfume? Well, there are a few things that men should keep in mind:
They need to spray the perfume on the dry skin and mostly just right after taking a shower. One has to hold the nozzle of the spray bottle at least 4 inches away from the skin while spraying.
If someone has just started using fragrances, then it is a good idea to start with a light note. It is great to go for a single spray on the chest and then gradually they can start applying to other areas as well.
Always apply fragrances to the heat areas. This is because the body heat can always push the aroma throughout the day. So, the best places to apply perfume are neck, chest, wrist, inner elbow and forearm. But one should not spray the perfume more than 3 parts of the body at a time.
Also, one needs to re spray only when required.
One should not spray perfume all over the clothes because it can cause water marks and doesn’t look good. Sometimes it can discolour the cloth which may appear visible with passage of time. It is better to apply on your skin only.
How to find a new and well-suited fragrance? Well, these are the few steps that one should follow:
One should go to a department store because they are great when it comes to choosing a perfume. One can try a good number of perfumes there at once (at least 2 to 4 at a time) to get the one which will be suited to them.
One can spray each scent at each wrist and inner elbows in case they are trying 4.
Do not got for the cards that department stores provide to smell a perfume because they only will let you know how they smell on cards and not how on a skin.
In between smelling each fragrance, one should smell something which is very strong like fresh coffee beans or tea leaves.
One should try smelling all the notes. This is because; one always should expect the scent to change after a few hours.
Then go for the fragrance you like the most. One should remember that wearing a fragrance is always a process. One can always end up loving more than one smell (which is very common and usual) and so there may be nothing called the perfect perfume for an individual. There can always be more than one smell that can suit them.
Now should one buy a perfume bottle which is very big? Well, the answer is always ‘no’. This is because if one is trying a new smell then they must buy the smallest bottle of it. This can lower the risk because what if one does not like the smell after using it for a couple of times? Also, one does not know how often they will use it and so a bigger bottle will take a very long time to finish.
Men’s fragrances are generally strong, and they last long.One should remember that the fragrances do not last forever when they are kept on shelf. This is because of some rapid heat fluctuations that can cause the molecules of the fragrance to break into parts. In fact, sun light can also harm them and so one has to store them in a dark and dry environment as said earlier. The best place to store the perfumes at the bedroom closet.
It is true that smell is the strongest sense that one can feel. In fact, smell is a certain thing that gets connected to the memory. Also, smell can really make or break the very first impression of the person. So, whenever one is going out (casual or formal) they need wear a fragrance which is closest to their personality. A subtle touch of a fragrance can always makes one’s presence a lot stronger.
