Our advice: How to select the best perfume for you

  - Fragrances  

Time to free yourself of conventions: focusing on fragrance type alone is so passé. Other factors come into play when choosing the fragrance that suits you, your expectations, the moment and your personality... Here are some helpful tips to help you. Start with your preferred olfactory family. There are only seven categories used to classify perfumes according to their major characteristics: Citrus, Oriental, Floral, Aromatic, Chypre, Woody and Gourmand. Which ones best reflect who you are? It might be difficult to predict, so listen to your heart, letting your memories and their associated scents be your guide. Follow your instinct and, most importantly, your emotions.


At what time you wear perfume is also important. Is it for the day or for night? The latter may call for a longer-lasting fragrance than the first, so let concentration be one of your determining factors. The more a fragrance is concentrated, the longer it will last and the less often you will need to reapply it. You should therefore opt for Extrait de Parfum and Eau de Parfum formulations. Eaux de toilette and colognes are more volatile and should be reapplied every four hours on average as needed.


The season during which you will wear a perfume is also important, as certain fragrances are more suitable for summer rather than for autumn or winter, or vice versa. You may want to try the summer versions of your favourite perfume, which are lighter in nature and allow you to adapt to the season without having to switch fragrances.


Finally, the last thing to consider are your expectations. Do you want to turn heads, assert yourself, express your current mood or personality...does this sound impossible? Believe it or not, it's a reality! So, test the perfume that you gravitate towards. However, be sure to take time to allow it to develop, penetrate your skin and transform upon contact so that your true self may be revealed.
