Different Types of Fragrance Concentrations

With your initial encounter to a fragrance, you start to form connections that intertwine the smell with emotions. While a pleasant one can help you stand out immediately in the crowd, an unpleasant one can be an instant turn off.

Years of research has proven that fragrances have a significant impact on your personality. You can get an understanding of a person by the fragrance he chooses.

The right way to select a perfume:

You should first spray a small amount of the perfume on your wrist and wait around 30 seconds. It shall allow the alcohol to dissolve and then you can gently inhale it to know about the fragrance.A perfume has 3 distinct notes. The top, middle and base notes.While the base note of a perfume is the strongest and lasts the longest, the top note is what lasts the shortest and evaporates the fastest.
