How to choose a perfume
Which perfume should I choose? We often hear this question from our clients. We offer a few tips on how to choose the right perfume and what you need to know.
Perfume should be chosen depending on the time when you are going to wear them: there are daytime and evening scents. Daytime scents are lighter and more delicate, while evening scents are sensual and spicy. The choice of flavor is also influenced by the time of year: in summer, sweet fruit, floral or fresh citrus flavors should prevail, and in winter – chypre.
Burning brunettes are more suitable for spicy aromas with Oriental notes. Blondes also go fresh and light perfume with notes of flowers or fruit. Red-haired girls are suitable for active and bright scents. Delicate brown-haired women are well suited to affectionate floral scents.
The choice of perfume is influenced by the nature of their owner. Active girls definitely need to choose fresh citrus and floral scents. Calm, reserved ladies will suit mysterious Oriental and chypre scents. And experts advise emotional and romantic people to choose sweet floral scents.
