Smart Rules On Perfume Shopping

Here are some tips that help when looking for your pefume:
  1. Shop in the morning. - Your nose is still fresh and has not been yet affected by pollution or food smells.

  2. Don't spray perfume into the air to test-smell. Choose at least 4 favorites then spray it on your arms,-one on each wrist and one by the crook of each elbow. If you want to test more than 4 kinds of perfumes, you can always spray some on your upper arms, too.

  3. Wait for the scent to settle in. Perfumes speak for itself when it "dry down" ideally after an hour or so.

  4. Avoid nose burntout. - Sniffing something that's not perfumed between scent testing brings your nose back to neutral.

Happy perfume shopping! :)
