Q: How do I choose the right fragrance for me?

Rather than getting bombarded with multiple scents, or purchasing a perfume based on just a name, it is best to consider 5 things. First, don’t try too many fragrances at once. Second, don’t rush the process. Third, understand fragrance notes and families. Fourth, follow your instincts. Fifth, remember to consider buying a perfume online as long as the store only deals in authentic perfumes.

Why not try online services, we collab with Fragrantica and we can use their Fragrance Finder. You will be asked a few questions, and based on your answers, the fragrance finder will suggest some perfumes you may like. It helps you buy a perfume when you can’t test it in person.

Q: Why do I love some and dislike others?

Everyone’s different. Some of us like the smell of cut grass, coffee beans, or freshly baked bread. Some of us aren’t so keen on all three. And it makes sense really when you think about your own experiences: if a friend has been absent for a long time and then returns, you might momentarily be confused by their new perfume – before working out who it is and why they’ve come back!

Q: How many should I try at a time?

If you’ve narrowed your choices to two, and you’re not sure which one to check out first, try them both on your wrists, inside of your elbows. If they smell the same (which if you went in with a list of three, trouble’s on its way!) choose the one that ticks more boxes: How it smells? Is it easy on the budget? How quickly does it deliver results? That’s our aim! We try to make discovering products as easy as possible.

Q: What´s the difference between Perfume, Scent, and Fragrance??

Honestly Nothing, they are all words used to describe the wonderful world of smell and the scented liquids (or balms) we apply to our bodies. The fragrance is in more common usage in the US, and throughout the perfume industry itself. Perfume comes from the Latin ‘per fumum’ which literally means through the smoke. It originates from ancient times when people burned woods, resins, and flowers and if you’d like to read much more about the fascinating history of fragrance, check out this page on Wikipedia: History of Perfumes

Q: What is the difference between Parfum, EDP, EDT, Aftershave, and Cologne, etc.?

These descriptions are used to identify the strength or concentration of oil in a fragrance. Ranging from 1% to 15%, the concentrations can vary from fragrance to fragrance but here is an average guide. In general, the higher the percentage, the higher the price – but be aware that different concentrations (Perfume, or Eau de Toilette, etc.) may also have different notes in them, and not simply be weaker or stronger. So when you like a fragrance, we suggest you explore its different concentrations. You may find that 3% perfume body spray is as long lasting for you as 15% eau de parfum.

  • Extract/solid perfume – 20-30%
  • Perfume – 15-25 %
  • Eau de Parfum (EDP) – 8-15%
  • Eau de Toilette (EDT) – 4-8%
  • Cologne (EDC) – 2-4%
  • After Shave – 2-4%
  • Soap – 2-4%
  • Body cream/lotion – 3-4%
  • Perfumed candle – 10%

Q: Can I wear a men’s fragrance as a ‘perfume’?

We know men who wear Chanel No.5 Eau de Toilette & Women who love John Varvatos in their fragrance collections. There are no rights or wrongs here, it’s all a matter of personal choice.

Q: What are niche perfumes?

A ‘niche’ is a unique perfume, which is often interesting and unusual, special and difficult to find, but sometimes pricey too. There has been a huge rise in niche perfumery, in the past few years, with many fascinating new names appearing on the fragrance scene. They all work with the same palette of fragrance ingredients, but often the niche perfumers try daring combinations or are inspired by very personal events and experiences. All fragrances tell a story, and exploring niche perfumes can be a great way to learn about scent.

Q: Do seasonal scents exist? Are some better for winter than summer?

Yes, of course. Keeping in mind weather and climate, you can use certain fragrances more during certain seasons.

In summer your fragrance may seem particularly strong. This is exactly why many brands offer lighter versions of bestselling scents. Some people prefer heavier more full-bodied, comforting, almost ‘cocooning’ scents in the winter. You may find you prefer a scent that has not been diluted with any alcohol at all – but again, this is individual. At The Perfume Society, we have richer fragrances that we love to rediscover when we reach for our opaque tights and vests, switching to airier perfumes for the warmer months. Do what makes you feel good – just follow your nose!

Q: How and Where should I apply perfume?

To make scents last longer apply to pulse points on wrists or neck behind the ears temples and nape of the neck behind knees and in the crease of the elbows between breasts and around the navel area. Blood runs close to the surface in these areas so it heats up the fragrance oils and helps perfumes last longer. DO NOT REPEAT SPRAYING or rub wrists together as it affects your oils.

Q: Why can’t I smell my own perfume after several minutes?

You may notice that after an hour or two, you can no longer smell your perfume or cologne. It is because your nose becomes desensitized and doesn’t react to the scent as strongly and quickly anymore. Your friends may still be able to smell it though.
