Perfume is now a fashion statement. Just like a fashionable handbag or nice

shoos it gives your look a touch of extra elegance. But there are so many women's

perfumes, how to select the right one? Discover different types of fragrances

and the way to find the best perfume for you.

Even though there are hundreds of different perfumes on sale, all of them

can be divided into several major categories:

  • floral

  • fresh

  • woody

  • oriental

  • fougere

When do you plan to wear your perfume - everyday or for special occasion?

When selecting a perfume it's very important to know where you are going to

wear it. Not every fragrance can be worn at work. For daytime it's best to go

for fresh or light floral scents. Many companies have a "no perfume"

in their dress code all together. Never stopped me, from wearing one. A fresh

scent applied moderately should be all right. Most retailers mention in the

description whether a particular product is for day or evening wear.

For a romantic evening or a party, you can choose a completely different scent.

Luxurious floral fragrances are just as suitable for the evening as they are

for the day, and you can also wear something rich with woody or oriental notes.

Trying perfumes - testers and free samples

You, probably already have a good idea what kind of fragrance you are looking

for. But you still shouldn't buy perfume relying only on its description. Trying

it yourself is the best way to select a scent that is the best for you. You

can do it in any department store or perfume shop - they always have testers.

Just sniffing the tester bottle won't give you the real idea of the scent,

it's best to spray perfume on a little tester paper that the shops provide.

Keep the paper with the fragrance and smell it in a few hours again. Most quality

perfumes change their scent as you wear them, the scent might be quite different

from the original.

Another great way to test perfumes is to ask for samples. Most department

stores have free perfume samples and if they see, that you are interested in

buying something, they will happily give you a couple of samples. Another way

to get samples of perfume is online, there are many websites that will send

you a free sample of perfumes hoping that you will buy from them later.

Finding discount perfumes online

An expensive department store is a good place to try and choose your perfumes,

but is it the best place to buy? It's certainly not, because being a smart shopper

you can find the very same brands of designer's perfumes much cheaper in specialized

discount perfume shops and online.

Getting fragrances online is actually the easiest way to find cheap perfumes.

Big online shops keep their prices significantly lower than department stores.

They sell hundreds of perfume bottles a day and don't have to pay rent and stuff

salaries, so online shops simply have less expenses and they pass the savings

to you.

The quality of your perfume will be just the same as you would buy it directly

from Lancome of Ester Lauder counter. But you have to make sure that the online

shop you choose sells genuine designers brands. Some of them specialized in

selling knockoffs - replicas of famous designer's perfumes. They say that it

smells the same, but it doesn't, not after you wear it for a couple hours.

Carefully chosen perfume can be a great accessory. Surely it's expensive,

but for all the hard work a modern women do, we deserve a little treat, wouldn't

you agree?
