What Is The Best Perfume to Self Express?
Since ancient times, fragrance is an act of self-expression. Are you flirty, passionate, bold, adventurous, classic? Are you playful, athletic or intellectual? Depending on how you see yourself, your perfume choice will say so much or so little. The perfume you wear is a window to your personality. Wear the right fragrance, and it will amp up your confidence tenfold. As we all get healthier and are making cleaner choices about the products we use from soap to shampoo, makeup to hand sanitizer, is perfume passing the sniff test? A tip, try to avoid alcohol-based fragrance as much as possible, and invest in organic roll-on perfumes because what you put on your skin and up your nose is nothing to sneeze about!
Choosing Fragrances: The Basics
To choose the best perfume for yourself, you need to know a bit about fragrance blending. The goal with fragrance is to have a three-part life cycle, with three distinct notes, called the top, medium, and base notes. You cannot smell these notes simultaneously, only in succession. The top note is the initial scent of any perfume that stays for about two hours post the application. Expect citrus, floral, and fruity scents from this note. The medium note, also known as the heart note, becomes prominent after the top note fades away. Typically, it consists of heavy floral scents, but you may also find fruity scents here. The note that develops the last is the base note. This is the foundation of your fragrance. How long-lasting the scent is going to be is determined by the base note. Smoke, sandalwood, vanilla, and moss are the common base note scents.
Quest For Your Signature Scent
What makes a perfume luxe or mid-price is not always the ingredients. What goes into the cost of your fragrance? Marketing makes up for the largest percentage. Packaging is the next cost. Fragrance is probably the smallest cost unless the ingredients are rare, or in very high percentages. Since most perfume is over 95% alcohol, in the end you might as well buy yourself a nice bottle of vodka. Remember that an expensive bottle of perfume does not always mean a better fragrance. When you pick indie brands like Adoratherapy you are more likely to get more for your money. Let's take our aromatherapy perfume oils. In their case 50% of the cost is in packaging and marketing and the other 50% is in the premium ingredients: Organic jojoba oil and essential oils.
