Estimated read time 3 min read

As a perfume blogger, I know that novices who are just entering the world of perfume may feel both excited and confused. Perfume is not just a personal accessory, it is also a way to express oneself, emotions, and memories. Here are some key suggestions I have prepared for perfume novices, hoping to help you find the perfume that belongs to you in this charming world.

Understand the basic composition of perfume
Perfume consists of three main parts: top notes (Top notes), heart/middle notes (Heart/Middle notes), and base notes (Base notes). The top note is the initial scent you smell, usually light and highly volatile. The middle note represents the main characteristics of the perfume and lasts longer than the top note. The base note is the longest-lasting part of the perfume, providing depth and persistence to the perfume. Understanding this will help you better understand and feel the changes in the perfume when trying it.

Consider your personal style and the occasion
When choosing a perfume, it is very important to consider your personal style and where you will use the perfume. Are you looking for a fresh perfume for daily use, or a more unique and profound scent for special occasions? Your perfume should reflect and emphasize your personality, making you feel confident and comfortable.

The right way to test the fragrance
Testing the fragrance on the skin can more accurately reflect the true taste of the perfume after its chemical reaction with your skin than testing it on a paper strip. Don't make a hasty decision, as the perfume takes time to show its multi-layered fragrance. It is recommended to wait at least 30 minutes to an hour after testing the fragrance to experience the complete process from the top note to the base note.

Don't rush to pursue popular perfumes
Although there are many popular and highly rated perfumes on the market, the most important thing is to find those perfumes that really suit you. Everyone's skin chemistry is unique, so the smell of a perfume on someone else may be completely different from on you.

Consider the concentration of the perfume
The concentration of the perfume ranges from high to low: Parfum (perfume), Eau de Parfum (strong perfume), Eau de Toilette (light perfume), and Eau de Cologne (cologne). The higher the concentration, the more persistent the fragrance is usually, but it may also be more expensive. Choose the appropriate concentration according to your needs and budget.

Try more and experiment more
The world of perfume is vast and diverse, don't be afraid to try new scents and brands. Many independent brands and niche perfumes offer a unique fragrance experience that may surprise you.

Continuous learning and sharing
Perfume is an art and science. Continuously learning about perfume knowledge and sharing your experiences can increase your understanding and appreciation of perfume. Joining online perfume communities, reading perfume blogs, and participating in perfume-related events are all good options.

Remember, choosing a perfume is a personal journey. The key is to enjoy the process of exploration and ultimately find those perfumes that make you feel happy and confident. I hope these suggestions will help you find your place in the world of perfume and start a wonderful fragrance journey.
