In early times, women of financial stature used perfume as a way to mask their body odor because they did not bathe as often as we do nowadays.
Hundreds of years later, in today’s society, women wear perfume not to mask body odor but to enhance their natural scent and to make themselves more attractive to the opposite sex, or to make them feel good about themselves.
Scent is a very powerful thing. The way something smells can leave a lasting impression in someone’s memory. Smells can also trigger a past memory or cause us to visualize something. For example, if we smell a perfume that our ex-partner wore, it may trigger negative feelings in us.
When we are on the prowl to find a partner we take the utmost care in making sure our visual appearance is appealing. We also need to pay attention to how we smell. For example, did you know that our bodies produce pheromones that naturally attract the opposite sex?
Perfumes and colognes can enhance these pheromones, making us absolutely irresistible. Scent is a strong sense in all animals and humans. When you choose perfumes in the future, you should keep in mind the importance of finding a scent that will make you irresistible to the opposite sex.
When you are shopping for perfume, you need to realize that what smells good on someone else may not smell good on you. The reason behind this is that perfumes react differently to our different skin types. You will need to try the perfume on your skin before you purchase it.
Next when choosing a perfume, keep in mind that there are different scents for the day and the evening. Perfumes that are acceptable for use in the daytime such as in the office are light and subtle. Evening perfumes can be a bit heavier, flowery, flirty, or musky.
The weather also plays an important role in choosing which perfume to wear. If the weather is cold, you may want to choose a “warmer” perfume that smells more like musk or wood. If it’s warm and sunny outside, you may want to wear a perfume that has a light floral or citrus scent. It is really up to you to decide.
Perfumes come in a variety of price ranges. I know that you may be on a budget but you should not buy a perfume just because it has a low price. A low price usually means poorer quality.
Less expensive perfumes are mixed with fillers, so the scent does not remain as long as you would like. If that is the case, you’ve just wasted your money. A quality perfume will remain on the body regardless of how little is dabbed onto the skin.
