Perfume dupes are replicas of designer fragrances that attempt to replicate the scent profile and aroma of the original designer scent. These products are usually sold at a fraction of the cost of the genuine article, making them a popular choice for budget-conscious perfume fanatics. However, due to their low price point, some perfume dupes can be quite potent and overpowering when first applied. Luckily, there are some simple ways to make perfume dupes less overwhelming while maintaining their signature scent profile.
The first step in making a perfume dupe less overpowering is to use it sparingly. It is easy to think that when something is cheaper, it should be used liberally. However, this doesn’t bear out with more fragrances. Just a few spritzes of a dupe will be enough to give you the signature scent profile without being overwhelming. Too much perfume will be too much for most noses and throats to handle and could even lead to headaches and nausea in some cases.
Secondly, layering your chosen perfume dupe with other products can help reduce its intensity while still letting you enjoy its specific scent notes. A light body lotion with complementary scents can be an effective companion when wearing perfume dupes, for example. Layers of light and sweet fragrances will help fuse together with the perfume dupe and make its intensity more bearable and manageable.
Thirdly, if you find your chosen perfume dupe still too strong after using it sparsely and layering with other complementary products, consider adding diluting oils like fractionated coconut oil or sunflower oil. This can reduce the intensity of the dupe and cut through any overpowering notes. To do this, add one-part oil for every two parts of your perfume dupe, so, for instance, if you were using five milliliters (approximately 1 teaspoon) of your perfume dupe, then you’ll only need 2 and a half milliliters (12 teaspoon) of diluting oil.
Finally, if the dupe is still too intense with diluting oils included, consider using a fragrance-free body mist between applications of your perfume dupe. This will help break down any harsh notes without masking them with additional fragrances. Remember to spritz it liberally between applications for maximum effectiveness.
Using these simple tips will help make your favourite perfume dupes less overwhelming without removing their unique signature scents entirely. With just a few easy steps, you can enjoy your favourite fragrances without fear of being overpowered by them!
