SHOP PERFUME ONLINE (WITHOUT SMELLING IT)
Some products are easy to buy online - perfume isn’t traditionally one of them.
Here’s how to discover your next signature scent, without smelling it first.
REFERENCE YOUR EXISTING PERFUME
Look to the perfume you’re already wearing for inspiration. What notes feature
or what fragrance group is it from? You may discover that you have a penchant
for floral fragrances, in which case you should probably stick to that group.
If you’re not sure what notes your existing fragrance portfolio includes, sites
like Fragrantica.com can
OK, so you won’t always have the same opinion as the rest of the online
community, but reading reviews can help you get a feeling for a fragrance. If a
lot of people say a perfume is “too strong” and you like lighter aromas, then
it’s probably not the perfume for you. Blogs can be a good source for impartial
WHAT YOU LIKE
Understand what you prefer: eau de cologne, eau de toilette or eau de parfum.
An eau de cologne doesn’t last for long but is great for a refreshing
pick-me-up, whereas an eau de toilette is the most common type of fragrance,
normally lasting for several hours. If you like stronger, longer lasting scents
you should opt for an eau de parfum or parfum. Know which you prefer before
YOUR PERFUME VOCABULARY
Get to know the descriptive words that are commonly used in relation to scent.
If a smell is depicted as “intense”, “seductive” and “enveloping,” then it’s
likely to be a woody or Oriental fragrance, suited for the evenings or making
an impact. But, if it “bursts” or “sparkles” then it’s probably a feminine,
floral or fruit-based scent.
A fragrance’s packaging channels the theme and smell of the scent within it. A
gold box and bottle suggests eveningwear and an opulent smell. Pale blue and
green packages imply nature and freshness (think summer and daywear), whilst
pink bottles are likely to be feminine and made up of floral notes.
Perfumers (or Noses) tend to have their own signature style, so have a look at
their portfolio of fragrances – let’s call it their CV – and see if you’re
familiar with any of their other creations. If you enjoyed one, you’re likely
to enjoy another.
DON’T GET HUNG UP ON PRICING
Just because a fragrance is expensive, doesn’t mean it’s the best. Look for
other quality signals, instead of price tag alone.
