A Fragrance for Every Personality
The choice of perfume depends on your lifestyle, your temperament and the occasion. There are perfumes or aromas that become a personal brand. Even if they are not present, that smell will make us remember them. Not everyone achieves this symbiosis with perfume or a family of scents. Undoubtedly the characteristics of a person and their lifestyle make their fragrance more unique to them. No doubt, choosing a good perfume from the right place is like a blessing. To find the fragrance for your personality or mood see which of the following suits you best...
Naturalness, freshness and energy:
For this type of personality the citrus family is perfect. These are fragrances based on essential oil aromas that are made from the peels of citrus fruits such as lemon, orange, tangerine, grapefruit or bergamot. From there, refreshing, effervescent and sparkling perfumes are released, which convey a sensation of cleanliness and freshness.
Sensuality and mystery:
The group known as oriental, with spicy or amber fragrances, evokes smells, flavors, colors and landscapes of the East. They are the most complex perfumes, which are made from vanillas, resins, balsamic oils and spices such as cloves, cardamom or pepper and plants such as ginger, cocoa or licorice.
Try Black Tulip, Amber Oud Ahad or Salt Caramel

Feminine and resplendent:
These personalities are associated with aromas that are difficult to obtain, however there are techniques to capture the purest essence of flowers and transfer it in all its splendor to perfumes. They allow creations ranging from the lightest colognes to the most complex perfume extracts.

To keep in mind
Oriental fragrances are recommended for the night, as they have a greater fixation and the aroma of your perfume will always remain.
Don’t be surprised if you stop smelling her perfume from one moment to the next. As we get used to a certain fragrance, our sense of smell starts to feel it less intensely. Try switching up your fragrance and don’t wear it for a couple of weeks, then you will smell your favorite perfume again.
The best places on the body to apply perfume are the parts where circulation is greatest: the chest, behind the knees, the wrists and the nape of the neck. It is worth mentioning that it is not ideal to wear perfume on your hands.
If you smell several fragrances to choose one, it is recommended to pass a neutral paper close to your nose (without any aroma) for 30 seconds between each perfume; so it does not saturate your nose.
Take into account the degree of concentration of the fragrances, as this influence the duration of the aroma. For example, an Eau de Perfume will hold up to eight hours; an Eau de Toilette, up to five, and a cologne, up to two hours. So if what you want is to leave your mark, an Eau de Parfum
