Don’t be too inﬂuenced by a pretty bottle.
The most important thing to consider when buying a new perfume is how it smells on your skin. Oil levels in diﬀerent skin types can aﬀect the aroma of a fragrance, so try (for a good few hours) before you buy.
Do smell fragrances in the morning...
and avoid eating spicy or heavily ﬂavoured foods beforehand. As the senses of taste and smell are so closely connected, it will aﬀect how you interpret the scent; and your nasal membrane will still have heavy, strong ﬂavours lingering for a while after you’ve eaten.
Don’t test too many fragrances in one go...
as your senses will become confused and you won’t be able to diﬀerentiate one smell from another. Stop after testing three or four (maximum ﬁve), and take a break.
Fragrance is like wine:
stored correctly, it will help the aroma stay fresh. Don’t keep your bottles in direct sunlight or under harsh lights, as the heat can aﬀect the fragrance oils and change the smell.
Never rub your wrists together
when you apply perfume – it makes the top notes fade faster, which aﬀects the overall aroma.
Perfume will evaporate faster on dry skin.
Help it last longer by ensuring your skin is well hydrated with a nourishing body lotion before you spritz.

Shopping for a fragrance can become a full on sensory overload - from the colours, the bottles in every colour and shape and the sampling of scents. When you’re shopping for someone else you want to choose a scent that says all the right things, but it can be hard to know where to start.
