As Coco Chanel said: "A woman who does not use spirits has no future." Who will argue with the delightful Coco? And is it necessary? Spirits, if properly chosen, can tell about the character, emphasize individuality, give charm. On the other hand, the inappropriate flavor can spoil the whole impression. After all, the smell penetrates into the subconscious of your interlocutor and, in part, shapes the opinion of you. No wonder professional perfumers believe that perfume is the soul of a woman. How to choose perfume and how many flacon need a woman for happiness? It is believed that in your arsenal should be at least four different flavors. The first for the office, the second for meetings with friends and noisy parties, the third for romantic dates, the fourth for yourself, your beloved. In order to properly collect your collection of spirits, you first need to understand what they, in general, are.
What flavors are there?
Well, the fact that they are divided into male, female andUnisex is clear. But even in order to ask the sales consultant to show you something new, you need to somehow explain what smells you prefer. And to seek advice, most likely, it is necessary. After all, you can not "try" the entire perfume shop! By the way, professionals believe that tasting more than three smells in one sitting, does not make any sense. The sense of smell becomes dull, you can not feel the depth and risk being mistaken. Apparently, specifically to help us understand all this diversity, not so long ago, in France, the Perfume community classified flavors, singling out a few basic types, each of which forms the so-called "family." Consider those that relate to the second and third group - that is, women's and unisex. And let the men understand themselves.
How to choose the right perfume?
So, we got acquainted with the main "families". What next - how to choose perfume? Even armed with such information, it is quite difficult to choose the fragrance that suits you. Well, first, you need to determine the criteria for selection. Of course, in the first place is the simplest and most natural - "like - do not like". Never and under no circumstances choose perfumes, the smell of which does not cause you positive emotions - even if this is the latest novelty of the season, mistakenly sold for ridiculous money. You can not wear such a fragrance anyway. Moreover, an unsuitable smell can cause bad moods, nervousness, headaches and allergies. How to choose the right perfume? There are several key points that you should pay attention to: your age, season, time of day and the place where you are going to wear the fragrance. We will deal in order. Age. Well, everything is more or less clear here. It is generally believed that young girls will be approached with light floral, citrus, aldehyde or fruit flavors. They perfectly emphasize youth, carelessness, freshness and energy. At the same time, too "adult" spirits can add you a few years. Ladies of elegant age are advised to pay attention to saturated, deep smells. Try to "try on" oriental or spicy bouquets. But, of course, not "for every day"! During the day, you can wear perfume from aldehyde or chypre families. Season As you already understood, each season has its own flavor. For example, oriental and spicy smells will be too "heavy" for a hot summer. They will cause discomfort not only for you, but for others. Therefore, such perfume is preferably left for a frosty winter. Then they will be very appropriate. Also a variety of chypre and woody variations are perfectly worn in the winter. A hot, stuffy summer so want a little freshness and coolness! It's time to select oceanic, citrus and fruit flavors. However, in the summer it is necessary to handle the spirits very carefully - from the heat the smell becomes more saturated and, even when applying the usual amount, you risk "overdo" and spoil the whole impression. Time of day Evening aromas are viscous and deep. They are ideal for a banquet, a trip to the theater, reception and will be the final touch in your toilet. Such smells are absolutely inappropriate, for example, in the office. For the daytime, you should choose transparent, not obtrusive fresh and light smells. A place Walking on a shopping trip with a man, use a vanilla flavor - it awakens generosity. For a good date, there will be a smell with seductive notes - cedar, pink pepper, pear liqueur. And avoiding spirits with lavender, bergamot and laurel is the choice of self-sufficient and freedom-loving persons. You do not want to scare him off? For visits to a restaurant or cafe, prefer compositions with edible notes - cinnamon and apple, almonds and cherries. Going to a nightclub and planning to have fun until the morning, "put on" a bright smell of hot skin - with notes of patchouli and musk. The most incendiary fragrance is suitable for meeting friends. In order not to distract anyone during the trip to the cinema, you can choose not an obsessive unisex. Friendly communication with the parents of a loved one will provide a smell with a lavender note.
How to choose perfume in the store - step by step
So, with what you are looking for,have decided. What's next? Next - go to the store. But at this crucial moment it is necessary to approach with all seriousness and prepare well. First, you should be completely healthy - a common cold or slight malaise can distort smells and then the result is not guaranteed. It is also very desirable that you have a good mood. In order not to make a mistake in choosing, you should go to the store right from the morning, and you do not need to use toilet water or perfumes on this day. Yes, and from hand cream is to abstain. Our nose - the "apparatus" is very sensitive and capricious. Exhausted by the smell of the day, he can "fail" at the most crucial moment. And when choosing perfume, the perception must be fresh and not cloudy. How to properly try the fragrance? According to the same Coco, spray spirits should not be on yourself, but in the air in front of you. Then it will be enough for you to just enter this fragrant cloud. However, this advice is more suitable for home use. In the store, after all, this should not be done - they may not understand. But what about the purchase? Very simple! Virtually all self-respecting perfume shops have special long pieces of paper - blotters. Here they should be used. Spray the fragrance onto the blotter and swing it a few times to allow the alcohol to evaporate. Only after that you can evaluate the smell. In general, in good spirits there are three constituent notes. The first - the top note - you can feel for just a few minutes. The second - lasts a couple of hours. The third - the train - will stay with you for a day. Well, of course, if the perfume is good. By the way, if in the store instead of blotter you are offered to sniff the lid from the bottle, then it is worth considering whether it makes sense to buy anything here. With a "basic" flavor determined? Excellent! Now - the most crucial moment. Put a drop of liked perfume on your wrist - where the vein beats. The fact is that the same flavor will sound differently on different people. Did they? Good. Now do not rush - ideally, in order to hear the "second smell" of the selected perfume, you need to wait 15-20 minutes. Then the risk of error is greatly reduced. However, according to the famous French perfumer Roger Dove, the choice of flavor is something like a lover's choice - to find out if you are suitable for each other, you need to spend the night with him.
