On Choosing The Best Type Of Women's Perfume

By Gordon

Do you know that there are as much varieties of women's perfumes as there are types of women, that's why it's important to find that one unique scent that that directly compliments a woman's own body chemistry. If you know why this happens, then you will find out how you can select the perfect perfume for your yourself, or that special woman in your life. Consider these tips on how to choose the best perfume for women.

Women's perfume can be classified under several fragrance categories, mainly: woody, floral, fougere, fresh, or oriental. This is fairly easy to remember, as each fragrance reflects the name the scent was based upon. If it has a floral scent, then it smells like a flower. If it has a woody sense, then it will give of a scent that reminds you of the forest or woods.

Another thing you should consider is the strength of the perfume. A bottle of high quality perfume will have much higher concentrations, which is why they usually come in smaller bottles. That's because a bottle of perfume is really nothing more than a mixture of aromatic oils, with ratios not exceeding 20%. Cheaper perfumes do not have as high a concentration, and the fact that it's thinner means it doesn't have as strong of a scent. These perfumes are easy to spot as they are packaged with the labels eau de toilette, eau de cologne, or eau de perfume.

Learning about these two factors will help you identify what makes a good women's perfume. To practice, see if you can find some well known designer perfumes, then study their labels. Then practice classifying them according to the tips we mentioned previously.

Some scents are easily recognizable, and you can tell the difference as soon as you open the bottle. Others are not quite as obvious and offer just a hint of suggestion, and may require more practice in identifying them. This is true for more delicate scents like Lily of the Valley.

Once you've had sufficient experience and can easily recognize the subtle differences among different kinds of women's perfume, then you will be more adept at finding high quality perfumes at bargain prices. That's because you don't have to spend a lot of money in order to get the best scents. - 16651
