is called a set of products that are designed to aromatize anything. Usually this term means liquid solutions of volatile aromatic substances. Their basis is often alcohol. The most popular types of perfume are perfumes, toilet water, cologne and various deodorants.
Mankind has long been concerned with the problems of smells. With the growth of civilization, the technologies for their production were also improved, and more subtle and persistent flavors appeared.
Today, modern man has at his disposal so many opportunities to create an individual image with the help of odors, which often just falls into a stupor. In addition, spoil the picture and many myths about perfume.
Perfume is quickly exhaled.
Seeing someone has a closet clogged with perfume bottles and colognes, an ordinary person will begin to convince that this amount of perfume is not required at all. After all, it will quickly sour, disappear or fade. And manufacturers themselves usually indicate the shelf life of their products – 3 years. But this does not mean that exactly in this period all the spirits will suddenly lose their properties by the magic wand, or will acquire a different, nasty smell. Usually, to debunk the myth, there are practical skills, not chemical knowledge. With proper storage of odorous liquid (in a dark and dry place, at room temperature and in a box), it can remain in perfect condition for literally decades. In addition, there is a strong demand for vintage perfumes, which are hunted as collectors, there and simply lovers of a quality and unusual product. Of course, among the old spirits can get caught and exhausted – in full or in part, but there are many well preserved among them. Try to imagine the joy of a collector who discovered the perfume Dior half a century ago with an undefiled flavor. When buying the same vintage perfume one should be careful – after all, it is not known how exactly the vial was stored, whether it was opened, and if it was, then how they were used. There are many nuances, wanting to make a really valuable purchase, it is better to consult a specialist beforehand. Massive psychosis about the timing of storage in many ways has a marketing connotation. This makes a person to use the perfume more actively, to update their reserves more often. Today, manufacturers are profitable to sell a “one-off” goods.
Perfect, “your” fragrance, this one, from which the smell is not felt.
Those who convince the buyer of this lie! If you do not feel the aroma, then there are problems with the sense of smell, or there is a common cold. There are many reasons, including olfactory nerves. In the end, it may well be that, thanks to habit, you really stop to perceive the habitual favorite smell. However, when choosing spirits, this quality will be more harmful, one should not trust substances without a smell. After perfumery – pleasure is akin to sex, food, wine. It should be enjoyed to the fullest, and for this you just need to smell. From the spirits that do not have the smell, you can enjoy only under the fan.
Each perfume is designed for “your” age.
You can often hear that a particular perfume is for an adult or, conversely, for a young person. In the shops are often asked to pick up something “for a young girl.” You can hear the phrase about spirits, “like my grandmother’s.” In fact, to spirits and fragrances, all ages are submissive, like love. In matters of choosing your own smell, it’s better to listen to yourself than your girlfriends or ignorant advisors who in their mass have a shallow notion of what they are selling. Any flavor – it will be saturated or easy, focuses on the character of a person, his way of life, a sense of life and certainly not at age. A smell is a kind of emotion, it’s the sound of life, not a one-year-old ring is not a slice of life.After all the girl and in 12 years can already become the present lady, and to the lady of old age nothing prevents to remain sparkling, cheerful and alive. A woman can not understand anything in perfumery, choosing “youth” smells of strawberry chewing gum or watermelon freshness. But, nevertheless, such flavors can even compensate for its apparent seriousness.
It is impossible to buy original quality cosmetics – some fakes around.
You should not at all refuse to acquire quality spirits, for fear of deceit. On counters there are fewer fakes than they say. It is necessary only to observe simple rules – to get spirits in specialized shops and not to be deceived by low prices. Remember, miser pays twice! The boutique line “Chanel” simply basically can not cost 20 dollars. Forgery reveals itself almost always, you can find it to the layman, only carefully scrutinizing. Even official fragrances may differ in quality – from party to party, from year to year. A banal error of electronics is possible in determining the proportions. So do not rush to expose the different spirits in an indispensable fake. This myth can be debunked by simple cautiousness and attentiveness.
Real spirits must necessarily be persistent.
It’s unclear who just invented such a myth? Why are persistent perfumes considered to be real, giving them the best qualities. Persistence is determined by concentration, skin chemistry, weather, in the end. Do not forget about the formula itself, the physical activity of a person. But is this directly related to the quality of spirits? A non-fragrant perfume should only be updated from time to time. For many in general, excessive stamina is rather a minus than a plus. For such people, it is common to change flavors several times a day. It should not be generally surprised that spirits with 3 hours of life can stick to the whole day. But those fragrances that on the other keep the day it is for you to vanish without a trace in a couple of hours. Spirits seem to have their own character, they are as impermanent and capricious as a man.
You need to come to some one flavor.
You can often hear that a real woman, like Marilyn Monroe, should wear only one fragrance, associating only with him. However, this myth is a legacy of the old times, when in general the production of perfumery, as well as in general, was much less. Then people lived more modestly – the coat was handed down from generation to generation, as an inheritance, boots were worn to the last, spirits were something unusual. They were recommended for use only on the biggest holidays. Was it then conceivable to have many scents? Today, every modern woman can make her own choice. Although the romantic tinge of the myth is quite tempting, but following this prejudice is boring! Although, true constancy, rather than a rigid adherence to the rule, deserves only respect.
Perfume is a weapon for seduction.
This myth seems to continue the previous one, arguing that the real lady must “put on” herself a certain perfume, which is a weapon for temptation, causing a man to have stable sexual reflexes. But is a man a dog of Pavlova? In addition, for the strong half, the best smell is a pure female body, and everything else is just nuance, ornament and underscore. Experienced temptresses argue that the perfume does not directly affect the relationship. A woman’s passion for perfume can only improve the olfactory abilities of her chosen one, rather than make her an experienced tempter. In this case, men begin to take possession of a wide arsenal of smells, feeling “iris”, “jasmine”, “something almond” or “something powdery.” If we talk about the fragrances that average men like, then the possibilities of vanilla have been known for a long time. Let it be simple, but effective. The methods of seduction are still the same – a skirt, stockings …And what man can stand?
The chemistry of the skin is capable of modifying the familiar perfume aromas.
Many women easily agree to buy the same perfume as their girlfriend, believing that the difference in skin will bring a difference in the final odor. This statement is only partly true. Actually, the chemistry of the skin really works, but not in large strokes, but in detail. Aroma can really change slightly depending on the type of its carrier. But who needs to strain to catch the difference? In addition, it is possible to catch differences only with the help of a well-trained sense of smell and only if the fragrance “allows” to do this. Perfumes of the “luxury” category are meant to be sold, they are always averaged as far as possible. After all, the buyer wants to get a stable quality, surprises to him in such a delicate matter are not needed. If a woman pays for an apple, is she interested in hearing that she will not get what she wanted thanks to the chemistry of her body? So it turns out that this effect is usually of interest only to fans of special varieties of spirits or old lux. On the skin is most unpredictably behave natural smells. In this case, you can really buy fragrances, like a girlfriend and use them calmly. If there is a desire to understand those very nuances, then one must understand that the surface of the skin can be warm, or maybe cold. The warmer the skin, the faster it opens fragrances. On the cold cover, citrus smells will sound best, but warm skin will give the smell a certain sweetness. And there are many such nuances. And do not forget about the individual characteristics. There are women with “grateful” skin, which gives an opportunity to show themselves to almost all flavors. Men can be more choosy, only certain groups of smells with the right ingredients will suit them. As a result, the selection of fragrance can become an exciting game – you can try on new perfumes, like dresses, putting them on different skins, to be surprised by unusual shades, to disclose their difference. Although the ideal skin can fail – the fault can serve as a hormonal background or a change in climate, weather. A banal change of mood can play a role.
Different flavors should be worn in the summer and winter.
It is usually assumed that for lighter pores lighter fragrances will suit, and for the cold, heavier ones. It is considered that the most dense, rich and rich aromas belong to the eastern group. It is there that create the most stunning and bright smells. Look at what the Arabs are wearing and what they like. It is enough only to specify vanilla and udy, amber and sweet tree, as well as musk in maximum concentration. But millions of these people do not accidentally choose these flavors. Do not be afraid to die from suffocation, because the human body has a unique opportunity for heat regulation. Thus, we get rid not only of unnecessary workload, but also of unnecessary smells. And with high humidity, you can generally pour a large number of spirits on yourself without fearing the skewed looks of others. As a result, seasonality does take place, but do not forget about exceptions.
