Types of Perfumes

Different perfumes have different types of fragrances, which eventually determine how you apply a particular perfume. Like any product, each perfume has its share of benefits and downsides. When you shop for perfumes, it is important to know that many companies and perfume designers use perfume names differently. For example, one companies perfume can be another manufacturer’s cologne. It is advisable to check the perfume’s description as well as the guidelines for use from the manufacturer.

Solid fragrance

These fragrances are wax or petroleum-based. They often come in tiny, travel-size tins. They are solid at room temperature, making it easy to travel with them, as they do not spill or leak. In many cases, solid perfumes are made from natural ingredients. This makes them suitable for users who are allergic to other forms of fragrances.

On application, rub solid perfumes gently on the skin or on pulse points. They are organic, gentle, and perfect for delicate parts such as the neck or the skin around the wrists. However, because of their solid nature, these perfumes may leave a bit of residue after application so you should not apply them near clothing.

Oil fragrance

Similar to solids, oil perfumes are also natural and organic. Designers use alcohol or other ingredients to dilute the scented oils. These perfumes are available in small vials. Their scents linger on the skin for a long time. On application, you can simply dab an oil perfume on pulse points. Usually, it works best if you use an applicator. Before you choose a particular fragrance, it is important to understand every point about it.

After- shave perfumes

It is possible to use fragrances as an aftershave. This is applicable for both men and women. All the same, aftershaves have their limitations. For example, based on their design, they can tighten up the skin pores to avoid razor burn and to provide a soothing effect. Their scents are quite strong but last only a short time. When choosing an aftershave fragrance, it is advisable to consider quality and its tenderness on your skin, rather than the fragrance part.

On the other hand, if you plan to use another fragrance after applying the aftershave, you should ensure that the aftershave fragrance has dissipated. Alternatively, you could use a fragrance that complements the aftershave. This is important to avoid mixing up of scents. Abreast with these tips, you could easily pick the best fragrance for your skin.
