Scents & Fragrances
Men or Women

 

By SM Yates

Fragrances have been aptly called the ultimate accessory. Nothing says more about you than the way you smell.
My brother, in his younger days, would try several fragrances at once. Living through this lead me to be careful about scents. In that frame, I offer you some advice about using fragrances.

Fragrance is best applied before you dress. You can mist a larger area of skin and avoid staining your clothes.

Fragrance will last longer if it has something to cling to. This means skin that has just been moisturized will hold a scent longer.

The only time to really avoid wearing scent (unless you know someone near is allergic to scent) is when you are in the sun. Some components of fragrances increase photosensitivity.

Scents smell stronger when warm. Therefore, it is a good idea to wear less fragrance in the summer months, or… change to a lighter scent.

 More tips:

1. Mixing scents is not a good idea.

2. Use just enough cologne/perfume for someone standing close  to get  a "whiff." Don’t knock your entire family  into  the next room.

3. If  you want a very light application of fragrance, bathe with  a scented  bath  product or use a scented body lotion  after  your shower.

4. Don’t choose a scent based on what it smells like on another person. Because  two people never have the same body chemistry, the  same scent may not smell as good on you as it does on your friend.

5. Fragrances don’t last indefinitely. They decay even more  quickly in  warmth. Store those you seldom wear in the  refrigerator  and keep your everyday scented products out of sunlight and away from heat sources.

6. You really can’t smell you as well as someone else can smell you. If you are applying fragrance often during the day, or trying out more than two samples at a time, your nose may go "to sleep" from overload.  Rather  than  compete with my brother,  get  a  second opinion from an honest friend.

Three places in particular call for just a hint of scent:

1. At work: many people are offended by strong scents and others are even allergic to scents in general.

1. At a meal: strong scents interfere with tastes.

3. Close quarters: places like cars, planes, or small rooms (such as hospital rooms) are not appropriate for heavy scents.

Since smell-or  the lack of smell-says something about  you  and  your particular style, you should make certain it is flattering.
