How do I test a perfume before purchasing?

It is important to make sure that the perfume you are considering for purchase suits you and your personality. Here are some practical tips for testing perfumes before buying:

Smell Unscented Products First

Before smelling any perfumes, first try smelling unscented products. This helps to reset your sense of smell and will help you to recognize different notes within scents.

Make Note of What You Like and Don’t Like

When testing fragrances, be sure to take note of what you like and don’t like. This will help you to determine whether or not a specific fragrance suits you.

Test in Multiple Settings

Perfume can smell differently in different environments, so be sure to smell it in numerous environments such as your house, outdoors and in stores.

Test on Different Areas of Your Body

Different areas of your body can amplify fragrances differently. Try applying a small amount to your wrists, behind your ears and neck for the best results.

Do Not Apply Too Much Perfume

Try not to apply too much perfume at once as it is easier to add more than it is to take away. A few sprays are plenty and should be enough for you to get an accurate reading of how the scent will smell on you.

Wait For The Scent To Dry Before You Decide

Once applied, wait at least 15 minutes before deciding if the fragrance suits you or not. It takes time for a fragrance to sink into skin so give it plenty of time before making a final decision.
