How Do I Know if A Perfume is Too Strong?
When buying a perfume, one of the most important considerations is whether the scent is too strong. If the scent is too intense, it can cause discomfort to yourself and those around you. Here are some tips to help you determine if a perfume is too strong:
Smell Test From a Distance
When looking at a variety of perfumes, start by conducting a smell test from a distance. Use your hand to move the nozzle away from your nose and take a big sniff. If the scent is too overwhelming right away, or it smells like a flower shop, this could be an indication that the perfume may be too strong for daily wear.
Consider the Intensity
Once you have taken a whiff from a distance, consider the strength and intensity of the scent. Many perfumes come in three different concentration levels including Eau de Cologne (EDC), (Eau de Toilette) EDT and Parfum. Generally speaking, Eau de Toilette will be the least intense and last for about two hours. Parfum’s are stronger and highly concentrated, and can last for hours on end.
Think About Longevity
The type of perfume you choose will also depend on how long you want it to last. If you want something that wears off quickly throughout the day, Eau de Cologne will usually be your best bet, while Parfum will provide an intense scent that lingers all day long.
Pay Attention to Your Reaction
Finally, when sampling a fragrance pay particular attention to how your body reacts to the scent. For example, if the smell causes you to sneeze or your eyes begin to water then it’s likely this scent is too strong for you.
Finding the perfect scent is all about personal preference and paying attention to how you react when trying out different fragrances. The smell test from a distance is an essential tool when trying out various perfumes as this will help you steer clear of harsh fragrances that may be too intense for everyday wear. Be mindful of scent concentration levels, longevity and most importantly – your own reactions!
