Finding the Right Fragrance

There are many different reasons that a woman needs to find a new fragrance. Perhaps it's because you've outgrown your old fragrance, your favorite fragrance has been discontinued, or just simply you want to add another fragrance. The reason doesn't matter; it still leaves you with the problem of finding a new fragrance which can be a challenge. Having a general idea about perfumes and what goes into the fragrance will help you to determine the fragrance that you want.

Trying to find the right fragrance that makes the statement you want to say about yourself can be confusing, especially if you aren't sure even where to begin. There are over 1,000 different types of perfumes that are available with literally dozens of new fragrances being introduced every year.

There are a wide variety of ingredients that go into making a fragrance, resulting in even more choices for you. Perfumers identify these parts as notes. There are three key notes in a fragrance:

  • Top Note. The top note is the first impression or smell of the fragrance.
  • Middle Note. After the perfume has been applied and has had a chance to warm up and mix with the chemistry of your skin this is the fragrance that can be smelled. This is really the heart of the fragrance.
  • Bottom Note. The bottom note is the last impression. This is the fragrance that lingers for hours after the fragrance was applied.

When finding a new fragrance there are several different things that help you to decide on what type of fragrance that you would prefer and that would work for you. Some of these things have to deal with your personality, your activities, and where you plan on wearing your perfume.

Fragrances can be categorized in four main ways. Knowing the different categories can help direct you to the type of fragrance that you want to try. The four main categories are:

  • Oriental. This is usually a heavy scent with spices predominating. Some of the ingredients that can be found in an oriental fragrance would be cloves, vanilla, cinnamon, and spicy florals like carnations and lavender.
  • Floral. Floral fragrances have a diverse bouquet of aromas. Usually a fresh smell that is romantic with a soft and sweet smell such as orange blossoms.
  • Chypre. Chypre is an earthy fragrance made with a mixture of different scents such as pine, lavender, musk, and gardenia.
  • Citrus. The fragrance of citrus is a light, fruity smell. This fragrance can be used by both sexes.

After you have chosen the right perfume for you, you will want to get the most out of it. Just remember that when wearing perfumes that the scents rise. Try applying the perfume lightly to your ankles, then move up to behind your knees, behind your ears, or on the neck. You can even spray your comb and then use the comb on your hair.

Remember to be courteous when wearing your favorite fragrance by following just a couple of simple rules: Don't spray on your perfume in public and if you're going to be in close areas with other people, spray lightly.
