A person's sense of smell is very individual. Don't
make the mistake of wearing a perfume because it smells great on
another person it may not smell the same on you.
When choosing a new fragrance, don't smell too
many at once. Limit trials to three or four fragrances and take
home samples to try in a variety of settings. Skin acidity, diet,
and hormones will affect how a fragrance performs on your skin.
If you find fragrance too cloying or suffer from
allergic reactions, try spraying your favorite scent onto your hairbrush
or hair accessories.
Store your perfume in a cool, unlit place, preferably
the fridge. Heat, airspace, and light will deteriorate a perfume.
Try Eau de Parfum rather than Eau de Toilette for
night-time use. Eau de Parfum is a deeper, richer formula that lasts
longer and promises to make your night out that much more sensual.
