Choosing A Fragrance
For women all over the world, the final touch to a dressing-up ritual is a dab on the wrists. Here, we bring you a complete guide on how to choose your perfume, how to apply it and how to make it your fragrance.
For centuries, fragrance has captivated the imagination of women..... Fruity, floral or spicy - every scent touches every woman differently. Perfume companies vie with each other in search of producing distinct scents that capture the minute nuances of varying personalities. Perfumes have become more than just smells - they have assumed an identity of their own - and most women prefer one that best describes them. Remember, out of all the five senses, smell alone has the ability to affect all others - it instantly creates an impression of what you can see, taste, touch or even hear. So take care and choose wisely. Here's some knowhow on scent basics to get you started.
A. Rose - For the woman in you: It is perhaps the perfect scent for most woman. It suits women of any age, at any time of day and night, and goes well with practically any color or outfit. Rose scents that come across as too heavy are usually of poor quality due to over-use of a synthetic base. The real thing is light yet powerful and commands attention. Rose also has a symbolic connection with the female reproductive system. Perfumers all along the industry's spectrum produce what are essentially several variants of this scent, nonetheless identifying a rose is as simple as a sniff - you are immediately filled with a sense of freshness, of springtime.
