Mistake #1. They spray too much or too little.
Spraying too much perfume will not just empty your perfume bottle fast, but also irritate people around you. However, if you spray too little, there is a tendency that your scent is too weak for other people to smell, which does not serve its purpose. We suggest spraying 4-6, then go out and conquer the world.
Mistake # 2. Applying fragrances in the wrong place.
When applying your favorite perfume, keep in mind that you can smell your perfume because of evaporation. Therefore, applying perfume in cold parts of your body is just a waste. So, it is a good practice to spray your fragrances on the exposed warm part of your body, like your pulse points, in your neck and wrist.
Mistake #3. They don’t bring a small sample of their perfume for reapplying.
When you're going out and don't like to bring a big and heavy perfume bottle, try purchasing a small refillable atomizer or a smaller bottle of your perfume. This is helpful when you need to reapply your perfume in the middle of the day so that you can stay fresh all day long.
Mistake #4. Not testing the fragrance yourself.
Blindly buying or buying perfumes based on a review or what your friends told you may not be the best thing to do. Buyers must consider that different people have different skin chemistry, which means the perfume that smells good to your friends may not smell good on you. So, if you want to buy a perfume that you haven't tried before, try purchasing a smaller quantity of that perfume first, or ask your friend for a sample that you can try for yourself, what are friends are for.
Mistake #5. Wearing the wrong perfume on an occasion.
Just like laughing at the funeral, it is improper to wear your formal night fragrance in the office. Heavy fragrance notes are for your night-time occasions, while fresh and light notes are for daily or office fragrance. However, some perfumes are versatile, that you can use them both in the evening and morning. So when choosing what perfume to wear, consider the occasion.
Mistake #6. They think that the strength and longevity of a perfume tell its over-all performance.
Strength and longevity are only 2 of many factors affecting how the perfume performs. You can rate perfume base on its smell, which is the harmony between the top, middle, and base notes. Projection and sillage are also a great indicator. Projection is; how far your fragrance pushes through the air, and sillage is the trail of perfume you leave when you pass. These are just some of the qualities you should keep in mind when purchasing perfume, but don't be caught up with all the details. In time you will find the perfume that best matches you.
We always believe that finding your perfume is like finding true love, it's hard, but it's worth it.
