When to Pay More for a Designer Fragrance

Let's face facts. Designer fragrances are expensive, but there is a reason for that expense to be passed along to you, the consumer. Simply put, perfumers spend millions of dollars concocting perfumes, using high quality ingredients. For instance, it takes over a ton of flower petals to make one pound of rose oil. It costs nearly four thousand dollars for those rose petals, and then there is the cost to add other essential oils, and the cost of the manufacturing process.

While it is more cost effective to buy and wear a knockoff version of a designer fragrance, there are drawbacks to doing so:

  • Ingredients. Designer perfumes use high quality ingredients, found in nature, and they are expensive. Their perfumes last longer since they use so much of the main natural ingredients. Fake perfumes use just enough of the true ingredient, and then use fillers, such as butane, to fill the bottle.
  • Longevity. The inferior fake scent won't last as long as the true designer fragrance, once applied. Since true designer perfumes use the greater portion of true ingredients, and less filler, they last longer when applied. Fake perfumes use the majority of fillers, which creates an inferior scent that will dissipate quickly.
  • Fake fragrances change for the worse. Whether you apply a designer perfume or the knockoff version, your body oils mix with the product, and the scent will change. If you're wearing the real perfume, it is designed to compliment your natural body oil scent and the new aroma smells delicious. Since fake perfumes are comprised mostly of manmade fillers, they are not designed to mix with your body's natural oils. When they evaporate, all they leave is an oily residue on the skin.

So, when should you pay more for a designer fragrance? The answer is easy. When you want to feel more confident and in control in the office, sexy and alluring in the bedroom, or light and carefree at the park, wear a designer fragrance. Fake fragrances smell good initially, but evaporate quickly. The only good thing about a knockoff version of a designer fragrance is the price, and that's just an illusion.
