perfumes show our identity

The word “perfume” works like magic on a woman’s psyche! Just look around the women’s perfume section in any department store or mall and you will see what a truism this is. The word perfume comes from the Latin phrase, “per” meaning “through” and “fumus” meaning “smoke”. And the history of perfume has been intertwined with the history of the human race.

From almost the beginning of time, man and women have tried to use products that enhance the feel of skin and the smell of the body – products that have been highly valued in by every culture.
Applying Women’s Perfume- The Right Way
The best time to put on perfume is right after you step out of the shower. This way when you don’t have to worry about leaving stains on your clothes or fading them. Before you start spritzing perfume all over your body, you should know about the pulse points. The right amount of  perfume should be dabbed on over the pulse points. Use it six times if you choose the backs of your knees and ankles or three sprays will be sufficient after you dry off.
Enhancing the scent of women’s perfume
To make sure the scent of the perfume is not confusing; it is advised that you use all products with the same scent. When the scents clash, it is not pleasant and can actually be irritating. If you want to wear a product that clashes with your usual perfume, you can skip the perfume and use eau de toilette instead. Eau de toilette has lower perfume concentrates and this makes the smell lighter. For a change you can also go for a scented bath and save the perfume for special occasions.
Sometimes women have their signature perfumes by which they can be even recognized by. At times, women’s perfume has even remained in family traditions where daughters use the ones their mothers did. Modern women now try more than one perfume and change them very often. There are also single note women’s perfumes like rose, orange and jasmine that can be chosen to suit your moods or events that you are attending. Getting a signature scent from the women’s perfume is what most women look for but now that there are a lot of interesting perfumes in the market; you can have more than one signature scent.
