How to Choose a Women’s Perfume

women perfume

As one of the oldest beauty products in human history, perfume has been a way to make an impression since ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. A spritz of the right fragrance can boost your confidence and instantly elevate your wardrobe, especially when paired with a flattering dress or blouse. And if you’re lucky enough to find a high-quality scent you love, it can even become your signature smell.

When it comes to choosing a perfume, the most important thing to keep in mind is that a little goes a long way. A strong spritz of an Eau de Parfum, which contains about 10-15% perfume oils, usually lasts three to four hours before you need a reapply. To make your perfume last longer, spritz it on your pulse points first (the wrists, neck, inside of the elbows, and back of the knees) to let it amplify and diffuse more fully. A dab of Vaseline can also help prolong your scent by absorbing excess oil.

Whether you want to feel like you’re walking through a flower-filled meadow or sipping an espresso martini, there is a women perfume to suit your mood and style. Luckily, some of the most popular perfumes on the market come in a variety of bottles, from sleek black to shimmering pink, so you’re sure to find the right match.
