It's My Signature Scent: 3 Tips To Help You Find The Perfect Perfume

Beauty & Fashion Blog

You probably know someone that you could identify their scent with your eyes closed. Many people choose a perfume and then stick with it for their entire life. The perfume becomes their signature scent. Choosing a signature scent doesn't happen immediately. It takes time to find the perfect perfume. If you haven't found your signature scent yet, here are three tips that will get you started on your quest.

Begin with Clean Skin

To find your perfect scent, you need to begin with a clean slate. Before you head out to test perfumes, be sure you start with clean skin. Begin your shower with hot water to open your pores. Opening your pores will help remove all the oils from your skin. Use an unscented soap to wash with. Once you've lathered up and rinsed off with hot water, switch to cool water for a few seconds. The cool water will close your pores, sealing in the oils, allowing you to have a fresh, clean body to test your perfumes on.

Don't Commit Right Away

When you head into the perfume section of your favorite department store, be prepared to spend some time. You don't want to commit right away. Instead, choose one fragrance at a time to test. Spritz a small amount on a card and walk around for a few minutes. Once the fragrance has had a chance to breathe on the card, take a small whiff. If you like the fragrance, go back and spritz a small amount on one of your pulse points – wrists and inner elbows. Be sure to stick to just two or three samples at a time. You don't want to overdo it by covering your body with conflicting aromas.

Shop Later in the Day

When you wake up in the morning, your sense of smell isn't very keen. In fact, it takes your nose a few hours to identify smells properly. To make sure you're getting the proper reaction to the perfumes you're testing, be sure to shop later in the day. This will ensure that you're getting an accurate opinion of the fragrances you're trying out.

The perfect fragrance can complete you. It can also become an endearing feature that identifies you to the ones you love. Don't settle on the first perfume you smell. Take time to find a perfume that speaks to you. The tips provided here will help you choose your signature scent.
