• Take time to browse, and make your selection based on what you like instead of what’s popular.
• Fragrances come in five primary categories: floral, fruity, woody, greens and oriental. Choose a second scent for special occasions, perhaps something with stronger base notes.
• It’s a common misconception that you should spray fragrance onto inner wrists and then rub them together. Instead, apply directly to the skin at the neckline, on the interior of the elbow joints and on the inside of the wrists.
• Body chemistry can make the same scent smell different on different people. When browsing multiple scents, spritz available scent strips and take them with you out of the store. Perfumes need time to settle, and coming back to them after a few hours will help you make a more informed decision.
• Ask questions of sales associates or friends if you’re not sure where to start. Personal recommendations can help make the process less overwhelming.
