What is the best way to choose a fragrance?

Choosing a fragrance is a personal decision and can be influenced by factors such as individual taste, occasion, and season. It is recommended to try different fragrances on your skin and allow them to settle for a few hours before making a decision. Additionally, seeking advice from fragrance experts or trying samples can help in finding the perfect scent for you.

How long does a fragrance typically last?

The longevity of a fragrance depends on various factors, including the concentration of perfume oils, individual body chemistry, and application technique. Generally, fragrances can last anywhere from 4 to 8 hours on the skin. However, using fragrance-free moisturizers or unscented lotions as a base can help to extend its duration. Regular application or carrying a travel-size variant can also help maintain the scent throughout the day.

Are there any tips to make fragrances last longer?

Yes, there are a few tips to enhance the longevity of your fragrance. Applying moisturizer or unscented lotion to your skin before spraying the fragrance can provide a hydrated base, making the scent last longer. Additionally, applying fragrance to pulse points such as wrists, neck, and inside elbows can help the scent diffuse better. Keeping the fragrance in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight can also prevent it from deteriorating.

What is the difference between eau de parfum and eau de toilette?

Eau de parfum (EDP) and eau de toilette (EDT) differ in terms of fragrance concentration. Eau de parfum contains a higher percentage of perfume oils, typically around 15-20%, resulting in a stronger and longer-lasting scent. On the other hand, eau de toilette contains 5-15% fragrance concentration, making it lighter and more suitable for daily wear. The choice between the two depends on personal preference and desired intensity of the fragrance.
