Valentine's Day, Defender of the Fatherland Day and International Women's Day - all these holidays are united by the concern for choosing gifts. One of the most common gifts for such holidays is perfume. Actor Sergei Gubanov, who has been making perfumes for several years, shared the secrets of choosing the right scent.
Sergey is convinced that the trend of the season is unisex perfumes suitable for both men and women. On the one hand, this can make it easier to find gifts, but it does not change the rules that are recommended to be followed in a perfume shop.
Consider the time of year when the fragrance will be used. The perfume presented on Valentine's Day can be chosen both winter and summer. If the warming is early and the perfume seems too heavy for your soul mate (winter), you can simply put it off until next fall or use it for evening outings. For the holidays on February 23rd or March 8th, you should choose a spring-summer fragrance. That is, something light, weightless. Aromas with citrus notes are perfect.
Consider your age. For girls under 25, notes of violet, lily of the valley, currant are suitable. After 25 - peony, citrus. If a lady is about 40, give preference to more noble aromas - figs, bergamot. Women of Balzac age may like musk, a combination of mimosa and carnation.
Consider your desires. When choosing a scent for a loved one, for example, a soul mate, be guided by your taste and how you would like him or her to smell. If you personally like the smell, then feel free to take it! In this sense, you are making a gift not only to someone, but also to yourself!
Don't overdo it. Test no more than five fragrances during one trip to the store. Otherwise, you will no longer feel the smells so sharply and you can make a mistake with the choice.
The choice of perfume depending on the type of person. Bright blondes with blue eyes can delight in delicate, transparent aromas with notes of fruits and greenery. Ladies with fair hair and bright eyes are more likely to prefer sweet, floral, but not very exotic perfumes. Brown-haired or red-haired women will appreciate bright aromas with a floral palette. Do not bypass spicy, oriental perfumes. Hot, but possibly cold, brunettes love bright, but not sugary-sweet scents. For a business man, choose notes of sandalwood and cedar. Temperamental - patchouli, amber, cardamom, vanilla. Creative - thyme, sage, cedar, cinnamon, pepper. Romance - musk, pink pepper, lavender, cedar. For the athlete - citrus and marine aromas.
