Finding your PERFECT Signature Scent
“A woman’s perfume tells more about her than her handwriting” Christian Dior
Fragrances interact with our skin and body chemistry, for this reason the same scent will smell subtly different on each person and throughout the day it changes to reveal new notes. When shopping for your signature fragrance never try more than two at a time – one for each wrist. Wear them for a full day to see how they develop. Even better, sleep on it and smell them first thing in the morning when your nose is refreshed.
Concentration is an important consideration also. There’s a big difference between an eau de toilette and and eau de parfum. Eau de perfum is more concentrated and so holds it scent longer throughout the day, whereas the eau de toilette tends to fade faster but the structure lends to a more light and refreshing scent.
