I know I’m not the only one but I love picking out perfume! With as many options as we have in the market today, it can be hard to know which perfume suits us best. Below I give clear, simple tips to making your decision quick & easy!
Matching Your Clothing Style to Your Scent
I’m going to give a few examples to better explain what I mean! If your style is girly and haute couture you should search for a floral scent or a spicy scent. These scents help accent your style and personality! If your clothing style is more of a laid back tom boy, you can quicken your search by going for fresh and clean scents or citrusy scents! Matching your clothing to your perfume helps pull your entire look together to really nail any first impression!
I am such a girly girl so I typically go for floral scents, I just love the smell of them. However, one of my best friends has more of a laid back look, and she almost always chooses a citrusy scent! When I was studying fashion merchandising, we had to research how perfume scents could correspond with your clothing! I’m so glad I had that course because I now I get to help you all and my friends make better decisions on their signature scents!
Do Some Research Before You Go to the Store
Sometimes your nose can get overwhelmed if you smell too many strong perfumes at once. Also you have you to let perfume sit on your skin for 30 mins to see if it still smells the same, due to your hormones. Read some reviews online of the perfumes you have in mind so that you can skip over ones that have bad reviews! Perfume shopping can be overwhelming, but at least there are resources you can use to make it manageable.
Also when you’re doing research, compare prices, see what stores are having sales! You may like a certain perfume, but one store may be selling it at a discounted price. It’s always good to get a discount, can I get a woop woop?!!
Know Your Levels of Perfume
In perfume there are levels of scent strength, perfume being the highest and eu de cologne being the lowest. So if you’re looking for a light scent don’t go for the perfumes! Or if you’re looking to stop the show, you should 100% choose a perfume! Store associates have to smell and give advice each day, so they are literally they are the perfume encyclopedia! My extra tip for this section is to be open to what she suggests! You may be surprised by what you like!
I now know that when you go shopping for perfume, you going to look like a pro! Shopping is such a fun activity, but it’s always better to shop smarter not harder! When you walk by, I know people will be wondering what you have on, and they’ll be able to tell you know exactly who you are! If you have a favorite perfume comment it below! 😉
