    choose a right perfume

    choose a right perfume

    Research your personal taste in fragrance. Do you like to smell lemons, vanilla, roses, musk?

    Ask the woman wearing the intriguing scent of freesia what her perfume is called.

    Think of fragrances the same way you think of music: top, middle and base notes. Note that a top note is what you smell first; citrus and light spices are the first smells to evaporate.

    Focus on your favorite smells and take that knowledge to the fragrance counter, where a skillful salesperson will lead you in the right direction. Clean linens, tea, grapefruit, citronella candles, vanilla beans, or even rainwater will be hints.

    Apply a scent and wait 10 minutes. Remember to spray on pulse points, where skin is warmest, for best diffusion of scent.

    Sniff the test spot again. Still like it? Chances are you'll like it tomorrow, but keep in mind that as the top and middle notes evaporate, you're left with

    Ask for a wrapped package when you make your decision.

    Tips & Warnings

    Clear your nose with coffee beans while testing a lot of different perfumes; ask for one at the counter.

    Some women like a cleaner, citrusy smell for casual wear, and a muskier fragrance for special occasions.

    Remember that the less you expose the perfume or cologne to the air, the longer it will last.

    Navigate through your choices. In order of highest to lowest concentration of oils, and therefore most to least expensive: perfume, eau de parfum, eau de toilette, eau de cologne and body splash.

    Shop at a reputable store for the freshest, most genuine perfumes.

    Ask a store about return policies, which can vary.
