How to find your perfect scent

By Alex C.

Are you looking for a fragrance for the office? Or rather a signature fragrance for the evening? Floral, woody or sweet? Light or heavy? Finding the right scent can be quite exhausting, which is why we would like to give you some tips.

Not that easy to find the right perfume

Testing different fragrances in a perfumery within a few minutes is almost impossible, since all facets of a perfume can never be captured due to the many scent impressions. Those who test fragrances here can only determine the first prelude. Already with testing a second perfume, the scent molecules are mixed and distort the respective message of the perfumes.

If you order on the Internet, it makes sense to read in beforehand so that you get an impression of the fragrance and can rule out and favor scents based on scent notes or customer reviews. For this purpose, we have written detailed descriptions of each of our perfumes, explaining fragrance notes, intensity and special features, which can be filtered out during the search.

By the way, depending on the season, fragrances are often lighter or heavier. In summer, many prefer rather light or fresh-floral fragrances. In contrast, some like to wear heavy, spicy scents in the winter. It’s helpful to know which scents you generally like to narrow down your search.

 

 

Testing perfumes takes a lot of time

In order to actively experience each fragrance phase, it is best to test a new fragrance over the course of an entire day, as it takes time to fully develop. This works best in a quiet, relaxed atmosphere. After all, a first-class wine is not drunk within seconds and then evaluated. A good perfume wants to be enjoyed. It wants to develop in peace and quiet and slowly rise to its peak form.

Be sure to try perfume on your skin. Fragrances falsify on test strips, as they develop differently depending on skin type – after all, everyone has their own body chemistry. Warm areas of the body such as the neck or wrists are best suited for application. A little tip: Apply a neutral oil or cream to the areas you are perfuming. On this basis, perfumes are even more stable and change more slowly between the different notes.

In addition to the body temperature, the fragrance pyramid, i.e. the top, heart and base notes, also has an influence on the development of the perfume. These build on each other and only together form the complete fragrance experience.

But how can it be determined whether the fragrance even meets personal desires and expectations? Buying a luxury perfume is comparable to buying a piece of fine jewelry. Everything must fit, the fragrance must convince – after all, the senses want to be intoxicated.

Find your new favorite scent with the Perfume Finder

With our Perfume Finder, you can make a preliminary selection to narrow down the perfumes that come into question. Lovely and seductive or rather powerful and confident? The Perfume Finder helps determine the perfect fragrance for every day, that special occasion or for the next date. Personal preferences narrow down the palette – taking the agony of choice away. The differentiated suggestions refer exclusively to the specified attributes that the perfume should have. Each detailed fragrance description shows which focal points the respective perfume has to offer.

The right storage

To ultimately enjoy your luxury perfume for a long time, you should definitely store it in a cool, dark and dry place. If you don’t want to hide your fragrances in the closet, you should choose a shelf where the sun doesn’t shine directly on it. To keep sunlight out as best as possible, the outer packaging of the perfume or our case is suitable. You should also avoid temperature fluctuations, because most fragrances do not tolerate these differences and their intensity decreases in the long run.

The ideal room for storage is the bedroom. Many put their perfume in the bathroom for practical reasons. But here it is warm, humid, and temperatures fluctuate – in other words, everything that can harm perfume. In the bedroom, even in winter, there is usually little heating, so the temperatures hardly change. Sunlight is also less in this room, because people often keep it rather dark.
