Fragrance Tips

 

Is it true that a person has his or her own individual "smell fingerprint"?

Yes. Each of us has our own unique odor identity which is the sum total of our heredity (genes), skin type (dry/oily/light/dark), hair color, diet, whether or not we take medications, are under stress, the environment in which we live, etc.

We often see this in…..all fragrances smell good…but not all fragrances are for u…so not because ur friend wears a fragrance well it means that the fragrance will smell good on u also….we all need to understand more what suites u

Do women have a keener sense of smell than men?


Yes, but much of it learned. On a day-to-day basis women in our society are encouraged to use their noses more often than men through their interest in cooking, flower arrangements, creating interior environments, and the early use of fragrance products. In addition, according to scientific research, the fluctuation in a woman's sense of smell, during a 24-hour period, is systematically greater than a man's.

These changes appear to be influenced by the secretion of female hormones. Scientists are testing to determine if estrogen increases smell acuity in the first half of the month and progesterone decreases acuity in the last half. It also appears that odor awareness changes when a woman is pregnant and often her perception of scent changes. She may be more conscious of some odors and unable to experience others.

Is it true that the sense of smell is keener in the morning than it is later in the day?


No, our sense of smell is not as sharp in the morning as it is later in the day. More upbeat, "bright" scents can be appreciated at the beginning of the day to sharpen the senses. …coffee please…most persons can relate through coffee…wakes them in the morning

Once you've awakened your sense of smell, choose fragrances that correspond with your mood, fashion or the occasion.


Can one lose one's sense of smell?

Yes, particularly if one has a cold, the flu or if you have suffered a head injury. If the condition persists, see a physician.

Is it important to apply fragrance all over the body?

Yes, fragrance rises. If a woman applies her fragrance just behind her ears, or a man his aftershave just on his face, the scent will slowly rise and disappear.

If fragrance is applied in the morning, will it last throughout the day?

No, fragrance is not formulated to last all day. It should be refreshed periodically. Approximately every three to four hours.

Does dry skin require a more generous fragrance application?

Yes, dry skin does not hold fragrances as long as oily skin and it should be reapplied more often throughout the day.


Can a person's medication, smoking affect how a fragrance smells?

Yes. The wearer may think a fragrance formula has been changed when instead it is a change in diet, medication or lifestyle which has caused the new perception of scent. What one eats on a regular basis can affect the way a fragrance smells and lasts on a person's skin. If one is on a high fat, spicy diet, for example, fragrance will be more intense. If you have recently changed your diet dramatically, skin chemistry may change, causing fragrance to smell differently on you.

Recent research indicates medication can change one's chemistry, too. Therefore, if a person is on medication it can influence the way a favorite fragrance smells on the skin. Smoking can dull the sense of smell and make us less aware of odors, good or bad. You should make a smell test of a favorite fragrance on the inside of your wrists and then sniff test to see if any of the lifestyle changes described above have influenced the fragrance.

If a person is inclined to perspire, does this affect the impact of fragrance?

Yes, body heat builds up, fragrance intensifies.

Can perfume be kept indefinitely?

Once a bottle of perfume is opened it is meant to be used. Otherwise it will begin to fade with time. Long exposure to strong sunlight or extremes in temperature can disturb the delicate balance of the perfume and change its scent. Perfume, to last, should be kept in a cool, dry place away from direct light.

Should fragrance be applied to clothes?
No, fragrance is formulated only to be applied to the skin. If applied to fabric, the fibers could change the character of the fragrance. The scent might also stain the fabric.
May fragrance be sprayed on the hair?
Only freshly-shampooed hair . Oils and dirt which accumulate on the hair and scalp intensify fragrance and can distort it. Also, don't spray fragrance on extremely dry or brittle hair.

Should fragrance be applied to the palms of your hands?
Yes, it is a wonderful way to enjoy the fragrance for oneself.

Why is it important to test No more than three fragrances at one time?
The sense of smell quickly develops odor fatigue if it is exposed to too many sensations in a short period of time.
