What woman does not like perfume? Light and bold, citrus, spicy and seductive floral scents make your wearer attractive and unique. But a good perfume is an expensive treat. Therefore, you should choose it carefully so that you will not be disappointed.
How to choose a fragrance
First of all, you need to decide on the flavor andTo understand what perfume is right for you. By nature, distinguish between eastern, fern, sea, floral, woody and chypre scents. They can also occur in combinations.
In addition, spirits should be chosen depending on thetime when you are going to wear them, because there are day and evening scents. The same smell is unlikely to be appropriate in the office and at a party. Daytime flavors are lighter and tender, and evening - sensual and spicy. The choice of perfume is influenced by the time of the year. So, in the summer sweet floral scents or fresh citrus fruits are good, and in the winter - chypre, whose smell is something like a tree and moss.
