How to Choose the Right Perfume

*Collaborative post.

There are so many fragrance options that it can sometimes become so overwhelming when you have a limited budget and you are trying to decide on the perfume to go for. If you are wondering how to choose the right perfume, it is important to have a mini checklist of what you want in a fragrance. That takes the stress of shopping and overthinking away, and allows you to focus on choosing the right perfume.

Here are some points you could add on your checklist for when you need to shop for your next bottle of perfume –

  • Decide on the scent you want

One of the first things you should consider before you go shopping for a new perfume is to decide on the type of scent you want. There are so many different types of fragrances out there, so it is great to quickly narrow down your search by deciding on the scents you want. For example, an apple perfume would suit people who love their fragrances fresh and crisp. Dossier has some lovely green apple fragrances for those who are into this type of scent.

  • How long do you want your fragrance to last for

Knowing how long you want your fragrance to last for helps you set the right budget. If you want your perfume to stay for longer, then shop for Eau de Parfum scents, as they are more intense than Eau de Toilette scents. Most times, the more intense the fragrance, the more pricey it is, so let your budget and how long you want your fragrance to last for, guide you as you shop for your next bottle of perfume.

  • Shop from reputable perfume retailers

Like with everything else, make sure you shop from reputable perfume retailers both online and in stores. The last thing you want is to part away with your cash, only to find you have not bought what you thought you were buying. Do your research before you part with your money and make sure you are buying quality perfumes.

  1. My go to has always been Opium. It suits my style. I also use the other two Opium’s that YSL have bought to the market over the last decade.

    Whilst those are my main pictures I do like to try samples often available online. I have treated myself to others at times.

    I like those with the strong essences
