Select a New Discount Fragrance
It is easy though to get into a rut of buying the same fragrances over and over again. Just like clothing, discount fragrances come and go in terms of fashion. Selecting a new discount fragrance can be an easy way to refresh one’s fashion and style. Select a new fragrance when you have the time to browse a wide selection of choices.
The best way to select a new fragrance is to go to your local department store where you can compare several fragrances. But don’t buy your fragrance there! You’ll be paying too much. Start by making a list of several fragrances you’d like to try. Sources of inspiration might include reviews and recommendations of other users on a discount fragrance seller’s web site, fashion magazines or maybe your favorite celebrity’s fragrance is right for you. Armed with that list, visit the fragrance department to sample a few of them.
It’s best to compare several fragrances. The problem is that our sense of smell becomes accustomed to certain scents quickly. This can make it hard to really discern the difference between various scents after trying just a couple. To help with this, many fragrance departments once had small containers of coffee beans sitting out. Taking a few deep sniffs of the coffee beans to “cleanse your palate” before sampling more fragrances seemed to make sense and helped to eliminate several fragrances right away. Today, it is believed that sniffing coffee beans in between sampling scents only confuses the nose more, so this practice has been eliminated.
Once you’ve narrowed down your list, you’ll want to be able to really smell those fragrances you’re still deciding on. Be sure to rest your nose between scents. Try sampling a fragrance and then walk away for a little while. Browse the clothing or shoes department for a short while. After resting your nose, come back and sample the next fragrance on your list. You’ll find that they smell different when you’re trying them fresh.
Once you narrow it down more, you’ll want to spritz a little on your wrist and wear it for a while. Perfumes are layered. The top notes last the shortest time and the base notes are the longest wearing. As a fragrance interacts with your own body chemistry and the top notes fade, it will change character some. You’ll want to make sure that you still love it.
If you’re still having trouble deciding or none of the fragrances on your original list appealed to you, ask for a recommendation. Tell the salesperson the kinds of scents you usually like and they’ll be able to recommend something from a similar scent family to you.
Now that you’ve found some new favorites go online and buy fragrances form your favorite discount fragrance seller. You’ll save a lot of money and be able to buy more of the discount fragrances you love.
