BEST MEDITERRANEAN PERFUMES FOR THE SCENT OF SUMMER

by 2021


Posted on 05/19/2021

Sicily – Dolce e Gabbana

There is the classic first edition of this, and now the re-issued version of Sicily, the Perfume. Means there are aficionados of the original and scepticism about the newly-arrived edition. Laced with aldehydes and sporting a citrus, heliotrope, banana, orange blossom and honeysuckle opening and jasmine-rose heart, Sicily embodies core scents that denote the island itself. In contrast to the two Ô de Lancôme fragrances, Sicily is a classier act and more suited, baggage allowing, to sultry Mediterranean summer evenings. We can’t quite understand why D&G would have ever discontinued this fragrance as it’s made for summer and can push to autumnal wear as it captures Mediterranean scents in a headier sillage.
 

Lime, Basil & Mandarin – Jo Malone

Jo Malone is an airport duty-free staple these days and much the same could be said for the signature cologne in the range – Lime, Basil & Mandarin. If you are lost among the testers and time is pressing, you can’t go wrong with this choice among Jo Malone colognes. Most of the range sport two key notes on the scent name, such as Wood Sage & Sea Salt or Oud & Bergamot. But this aromatic-citrus threesome, while seeming a pedestrian combination of notes, is really well put together and effortless to wear in a hot climate. A bracing, rich citrus accord with the intriguing grass-and-mint smell of basil, clear and bright as a morning after rain”.

HOW TO MAKE NATURAL PERFUME LAST LONGER

by 2021


Posted on 05/19/2021

Do Natural Perfumes Last Longer?


Yes and no. Fact and myth.
Let’s start with dispelling the myth: To put it simply,we can load up a natural perfume formula with notes that will peel off the skin slowly. Sandalwood, for instance, can easily last a month or more on a scent blotter. So too can various notes we associate with ‘base notes’: vanilla oleo resin, labdanum, cistus, frankincense, patchouli, ylang ylang, jasmine, vetiver, musk ambrette and even notes like Cognac.
These are all heavier molecules that may have a low impact initially but are very tenacious over time. They generally don’t fly off the skin fast, depending on personal skin biome, climate and humidity. These base notes can be used to create a natural perfume in entirety – a kind of linear structure without surprises – and also to fix more volatile top notes like those of the citrus family.
Another way to make a natural perfume last is to use some natural isolates in the formula. These are akin to concentrates and are often extracted using CO2 from raw aromatic and botanical materials. They are richer, more powerful versions of the original material. One we love using is guaiacol natural isolate which is a moody, woody, smokey note extracted from pine root.
It is therefore entirely possible for natural perfumes to be long lasting. It is up to the creativity and skill of the natural perfumer to juggle the percentages to craft the desired perfume. And the end juice might be one that can equate to those of the commercial mass market, or alternatively be a perfume of rare qualities desired by the indie market cognoscenti.


Facts about Natural Perfumes not lasting


There are some limitations on the natural perfumer. It is not easy to create a light airy citrus cologne that will also last a long time. Citrus notes are highly volatile and will evaporate fast. They can be fixed with those base notes and slowed to some degree.
Of course, it’s not strictly true that citrus flies all at once as along with the citrus will be some of those heavier molecules and, vice versa, the citrus molecules will have had a role to play during the macerating period of a perfume, in altering the state of the base notes. A perfume is a melange after all.

Roja Dove - Truth and Lies

by 2020


Posted on 07/01/2020


private label perfume manufacturers in uae

Roja Dove – actually its Roger but I think that rejecting its name tells a lot about the pose this brand stroke.

The beginning

As an adolescent, he began a correspondence with the PR of the house of Guerlain, also known as the “Vatican of perfume industry” as we are talking about almost 200 years old house with a striking number of timeless perfume masterpieces it continues to produce today. He continued bombing them with questions during his medical studies he gave up to begin working in the fashion industry. When he was 24 after tiring Robert Guerlain with his questions so much he gave him an administrative job. He worked for 20 years in Guerlain and advance to the position of brand ambassador.

Then he magically opened his own perfume production in 2001. Surprise surprise, most of his creations resembled Guerlain perfumes – those already presented and those waiting to be presented. During the years he spent there he had the chance to spend time with the best perfume makers in the world and he learned a lot from them.

Are copycats the best way to repay them for the incredible opportunity given t him? Is imitation the greatest form of flattering? I’ll let you be the judge of that…

What do the critics say?

World’s greatest perfume reviewer Luca Turin gave all Roja Dove’s perfumes one star or two. The only exemption is Fetish that received three. Not one perfume landed on the good, four, five stars perfumes list. Ordinarily eloquent and interesting, Luca used one word to describe Roger Dove’s perfumes – “routine”. And he was appalled by their price.

As far as I’m concerned, luxury bottles, encrusted with metal, bejeweled with diamonds and crystals cannot mask the desperate lack of inspiration and imagination. Lack of talent is noticed with every breath and the insincerity, fakeness and narcissistic conduct of Roger (Roje) Dove can pass only with the newly rich but never with European with wit and culture and a true passion towards perfume making art.

TOM FORD - PERFUME HOUSE

by 2020


Posted on 08/12/2020

TOM FORD  -  PERFUME HOUSE –

 

Afashion genius, a billion-dollar businessman, a creator of perfume bestsellers, an Oscar-nominated director, a perfectionist, an individual in many ways, these are just some of the words that describe a living legend, a man who made an institution out of his name – Tom Ford.

Description: tom ford

Thomas Carlyle Ford was born on August 27, 1961, in Austin, Texas. He spent his early childhood in the suburbs of Houston and San Marcos. He says about himself that he never behaved like a child. There are many reasons for that: at the age of three, he would walk around with a blazer slung over his arm, at the age of six, as soon as his parents came out, he would redecorate the rooms, arranging the furniture. He was bullied every day at school because he wore a suit and a purse, he thought he looked great, and he didn’t understand why others didn’t think the same.

Tom Ford had a role model in fashion from a very early age. “My grandmother was probably the first person I thought was gorgeous. She was incredibly elegant. She had big hair and big cars. When I was three, I imagined her as a cartoon character. She would infuse our lives with gifts and boxes, she always smelled great, and she looked great. For me, she was bigger than life. She looked like she was living in another world, and wherever it was, I wanted to go”, he told Interview magazine.

Description: tom ford

At 16, he moved to New York to study art history, which he dropped out of after only a year. He moved to California and began his acting career. The proof that his job went well is also shown by the fact that at one point, his face appeared at the same time in 12 commercials that were broadcast across the country. He graduated in architecture from Parsons College, but fashion, photography, and film have always been the center of his interest. After graduating, Tom Ford started working for American sportswear designer Cathy Hardwick, whom he literally called for a month, day after day, in order to get a job. He was her assistant for two years, after which he moved to Perry Ellis, where he collaborated with designer Marc Jacobs.

Ford’s talent and creativity were first recognized by Dawn Mello, then creative director of Gucci, who hired him in 1990 as a designer of the women’s prêt-à-porter collection. Enormous effort and work brought results, so after only four years, he was promoted to creative director of the Gucci Group, and when this company bought Yves Saint-Laurent, Ford was appointed creative director of that brand as well. He brought sexuality and glamor to the brand, which was almost on the verge of bankruptcy. With photographer Mario Testino and stylist Carine Roitfeld, he was working on advertising campaigns that became absolute hits. A photograph of Sophie Dahl in an advertisement for Opium, in a sexually suggestive pose dressed only in pearls and heels, was banned from being placed on billboards in the UK. An ad for the M7 with a completely naked Samuel de Cubber, except for the French edition of Vogue, Vogue Hommes, and the German edition of GQ, was rarely allowed to be published. The world was left breathless, and Gucci’s sales increased by an unimaginable 90 percent in just two years.

Description: tom ford dress

The company, which was estimated at 4.3 billion dollars in 1999, was worth 10 billion by 2004. Still, despite the huge success, Ford left it due to the conflict with the new management over the artistic control of the group. Years later, he admitted that the move left him penniless and made him very depressed, but he did not give up. Five months after leaving the house to which he gave so much of himself, he wrote a book that presents his work and follows his influence on the fashion world, and especially on Gucci. “I was really proud of everything I did there, and that’s why I decided: I’m going to write a big, thick book and call it Tom Ford,” he once said in an interview with Vogue magazine.

After founding the film company FADE TO BLACK in 2005, in 2009, he made his directorial debut with the film A Single Man, for which he worked on both screenwriting and production. The premiere of the film was held at the Venice Film Festival, where he received many awards, and the main actor Colin Firth also received awards: Coppa Volpi and BAFTA for Best Actor, as well as Golden Globe and Oscar nominations for Best Leading Actor. Ford was nominated for Best Movie Debut and Best First Screenplay. This is not his only film achievement in 2016. Ford wrote and directed the film Nocturnal Animals, which also did well with critics. The film won a grand jury award at the 73rd Venice International Film Festival, and the cast, which included Ami Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal, received Golden Globe and Oscar nominations.

Description: tom ford men fashion

Tom Ford and Estee Lauder began collaborating in 2005 with Youth Dew Amber Nude, a more modern and advanced version of the famous Youth-Dew created for Estee Lauder in 1953 by Josephine Catapano. Ford upgraded the erotic, oriental debut with intoxicating and challenging aromas of dark chocolate, spices, black rose, and cognac with warm amber that dominates throughout the composition. The perfume that enchanted the young generation on the first sniff also earned over 200 million dollars.

That year, Tom Ford also announced the creation of his own brand. The first store, of now 21 present around the world, he opened a little later in one of the most exclusive locations, Madison Avenue in New York. At the same time, his long-awaited men’s collection appeared, and in 2010 he marked his return to women’s clothing design with a presentation at Madison Avenue for clientele such as Beyoncé, Daphne Guinness, and Lauren Hutton.

Description: tom ford women fashion

The spring/summer 2012 collection did not go so well. Virginie Mouzat from the influential French publication Le Figaro went so far as to call it a “nightmare”. Ford agreed, acknowledging that it was the worst thing he had ever done. Down but not defeated, the following year, he decided on a different approach, having a fashion show for the first time following the schedule of London Fashion Week. Also known for not allowing access to photographers until then, because he did not want the clothes to lose their “freshness” in the photo, on the day of the show, Ford personally conducted the media and all those interested through his collection. That year, the “London Collections for Men” was declared one of the most glamorous events in the British capital.

“I have always known how to evaluate well, that is one of the reasons for my success. Put on one hundred and five pairs of shoes, and I will choose the ones that will surpass all the others. Suffice it to say – I like this the most and it will sell the best. It is not just about talent but also knowledge and experience. Fashion is a balance between art and trade“, he said in numerous interviews. Aside from the fact that he always had an eye for products that would achieve commercial success, Tom Ford dared to choose fragrant formulas that few would dare to launch in the perfume world. In addition to courage, an adage that always guided him was that people should not only be given what they want but also reveal to them what they did not even know they wanted. In my case, it’s true, because it was with some of his perfumes, like Gucci Rush for Men, that I discovered how I wanted to smell.

Description: portrait

The Tom Ford perfume collection consists of 99 glamorous women’s and men’s fragrances, as many as he has released so far. And while many perfume fans treat him like a perfume icon, some find his fragrances unbearable. But no one remains indifferent, and his creations have been on the perfume lists of bestsellers for years.

Black Orchid, the first fragrance launched in 2006, is a rich mixture of dark orchids and spices, rounded as an oriental chypre that provided delight for many ladies (and men). The top notes are French jasmine, black truffle, ylang-ylang, black currant, and a bright mixture of refreshing notes of lemon and cucumber. The floral-spicy heart is Tom Ford’s black orchid, and the base includes woody notes, incense, amber, vanilla, and balsamic notes. This is a perfume of open eroticism and tangible perversion, a dark object of desire for those who immerse themselves in it.

Description: m7

For the masculine scent Tom Ford For Men, he repeated the shock therapy with commercials alluding to sex. The perfume is based on cypriol, an Indian plant that gives perfumes a forest note. Cypriol is known for providing men sexual power and its aphrodisiac properties. In addition to cypriol, the fragrance uses amber, cedar, patchouli, which is why the scent is characterized by extreme sensuality.

Whatever collection he creates, Tom Ford believes that men and women can wear any of his perfumes. Thus, in 2007 the Private Blend collection of 12 unisex Eau de parfums was created, each of which can be worn independently or combined with other fragrances from the collection. Although, having in mind the potency of the formulas, I would not recommend the layered application, at least not when it comes to Tom Ford perfumes.

I have an opportunity to create original perfumes that are not limited by mainstream conventions of creating perfumes. Private blend is designed to have in mind a true connoisseur of fragrances; he told the Perfume society.

One of the most popular perfumes from that collection is Tobacco Vanille, an attractive and glamorous fragrance that opens with notes of tobacco leaves and flavored spices. At the heart of the scent are tonka beans, tobacco flowers, vanilla, and cocoa, while the base consists of a mixture of woody notes and dried fruit. It can very often be felt on the heated bodies of nightclub visitors because Tobacco Vanille harmonizes perfectly with rooms filled with cigar smokes, which is a quality that few perfumes possess.

Men’s Noir is a fragrance created to capture the different aspects of a man like Tom Ford: sophisticatedly urban on the outside, sensual on the inside. The oriental fragrance contains top notes of verbena and bergamot cut with the accord of cumin and rose, to create an eccentric but compelling spicy-floral blend. At the heart of the fragrance are black pepper, nutmeg, resin, Egyptian geranium, and sage. At the same time, the base notes opoponax, amber, Indonesian patchouli, vetiver, civet, and vanilla complete this exotic blend.

Noir is enigmatic, dark, complex, and surprising. It’s perhaps my most personal scent so far, Ford said.

Noir Extreme is designed to reveal a new dimension to Noir, Extreme leaves a strong impression, just like the man who wears it. It opens with a mix of fresh citrus fruits and warm spicy aromas, mixing top and middle notes of mandarin, neroli, saffron, cardamom, and nutmeg. The base is a harmonious balance of hot amber, musk, sandalwood, and sweet vanilla. The charismatic fragrance was first introduced to the world in 2015, and Ford itself was the promo face of this perfume.

Perhaps the best from the Noir collection is Noir de Noir that perfected Noir’s original idea and gave it an exciting twist by combining two sinful pleasures, chocolate and a rose. You don’t have to be a romantic at heart to know that this mixture is perfect for the first, second, and every date in life.

Many perfumers have collaborated with him on creating fragrant creations that push boundaries. Among them are Harry Fremont, Sonia Constant, Yves Cassar, Givaudan, Calice Becker, David Apel, Yann Vasnier, Shyamala Maisondieu, Antoine Maisondieu, Clement Gavarry, Rodrigo Flores-Roux, Nathalie Gracia-Cetto, and Olivier Gillotin. The beauty collection of cosmetics and fragrances for men and women announced as a unique vision of modern glamor will contribute to his company’s sales of more than a billion dollars by the end of 2020.

CREED - HOUSE OF PERFUMES

by 2020


Posted on 08/27/2020

CREED  -  HOUSE OF PERFUMES

 

From father to son, since 1760” – says the label on CREED perfumes. The perfume tradition of 260 years is most often described as: creating original fragrances of extravagant quality.

Description: creed history

Interestingly, CREED perfumes were so exclusive from the start that they remained largely unknown to the general public. “The best-kept secret in the world of perfumes”, as CREED is sometimes called – is not a secret among the rich and famous clientele. And it is made up of members of the royal and presidential families – from Britain’s Queen Victoria to Winston Churchill and John Kennedy. Famous “Bonds”: Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan, Roger Moore, all used Green Irish Tweed, a perfume originally created for Cary Grant.

In addition to the slightly more than 200 perfumes they have released so far, every year a couple of dozen fragrances are developed, whose formulas are adapted to the wishes of several privileged members of the world’s elite. It is known that there is a “waiting list” for this service, and although CREED will never tell you who they are and how much they pay, it is believed that Madonna and Gerard Depardieu are among them, and it is said that the price is around 10,000 pounds. What is known for sure is that special contracts are made with such a clientele, which determines the period of exclusivity. Some of them were signed for five years and some for the rest of the client’s life.

Description: creed store

The history of CREED begins in the 18th century when James Henry Creed opened a tailor’s shop on Conduit Street in London. He first supplied members of the English court with suits and leather gloves, and soon his creations became an unavoidable part of the outfit of the London elite. A pair of fragrant gloves were made in 1781 from Royal English leather in honor of King George III. James wanted the king to inhale a rich mixture of mandarin, ambergris, and sandalwood while resting his chin on his glove. This was also the first perfume with CREED’s signature.

Henry Creed II, the third generation of CREED, was born in 1824 and is one of the most innovative perfumers of the time, but also an equally skilled trader who spreads the family brand across the continent, creating “the most beloved and famous scent of European monarchies.”

At the request of the French Empress Eugenie, the wife of Napoleon III, CREED moved to Paris in 1854, where the famous Jasmine Imperatrice Eugénie was created, a fragrance that is still available today. At her request, a sensual, floral oriental fragrance was made in which the combination of bergamot with rich vanilla and amber creates a fragrance full of warmth and strength, just like the woman after whom the perfume was named.

Among the clients of royal origin were the Austro-Hungarian Tsar Franz-Josef, his noble wife, Empress Elisabeth, and the Russian Tsar Nicholai II.

In 1885, Queen Victoria, for the needs of the British Royal Court, appointed CREED as the official supplier. Fleurs de Bulgarie was created by order of the Queen, a perfume still existing today. A fragrant creation accentuated by a bouquet of citrus, fruity and powdery tones, which combine sensuality, warmth, and elegance. The connection between the perfume house and the British royal family does not end in the 20th century either: Prince Charles and Diana used exclusively their perfumes, and in 2006 Kate Middleton received the first bottle of CREED – Royal Ceylan.

Description: creed perfumes

In 1956, Fleurissimo was created, a perfume that Grace Kelly wore on the day of her wedding to Prince Rainier. That’s how Hollywood’s long love affair with CREED began: Angelina Jolie uses Love in White, Sofia Vergara always smells like Jardin d’Amalfi, and Susan Sarandon always uses Creed Santal.

Today, the company is run by Olivier Creed, the sixth in the family line and the creator of some of the most popular fragrances: Green Irish Tweed (1985), Silver Mountain Water (1995), Millesime Imperial (1995), Spring Flower (1996), Original Vetiver (2004) and the Himalaya (2002).

Olivier Creed – described by The Independent as “the most elegant perfumer in the world”, took over the family business in 1985. He originally attended the prestigious Parisian art school Ecole des Beaux-Art.

As he has repeatedly said, the only time his schoolmates spoke positively about perfumers and perfumes was in 1982, when Colin Smart (a famous rugby player for English Newport) after winning a match against France in Paris, during a celebratory dinner drank a bottle of aftershave mixed with wine and ended up in the hospital. The journalists found out about the unpleasant event, so they asked the captain of the team that took Smart to the intensive care unit how he felt, and the answer was: “Not very well. But he smells wonderful. “The event has long been retold as “The Aftershave Incident”

Description: olivier creed

Olivier’s first perfume, Green Irish Tweed, like a perfectly tailored suit, has become a timeless classic that never goes out of fashion. It is a combination of woody freshness and pure masculinity, and lemon and verbena from India, peppers, violet leaves, Florentine iris, sandalwood, ambergris in their unity act as refreshing as a walk on the green glades of Ireland. Green Irish Tweed was created in 1985 and has been one of Creed’s best-selling fragrances for years.

When Olivier Creed took over the company, perfume sales were around 1,200 bottles a year, and now, despite the very high price, that figure is close to a million. The high price of the perfume stems (in addition to the image) from the fact that all CREED fragrances are produced by hand, in the way set by James Creed. Namely, for the production of their own natural essences, the house kept the traditional technique of infusion – an expensive process, which was abandoned by most perfume companies.

We have one basic belief: we always use natural ingredients, the synthetic version is not an option for us. And that way of working is not cheap. I traveled thousands of miles to find the right fruit or flower. My bergamot comes from Calabria, a favorite iris from Florence. I found a rare and extraordinary sandalwood in the city of Mysore, India – Olivier explains

Compared to others in the French fragrance industry, this house has the highest percentage (from 65% to 90%) of natural ingredients in its perfumes.

The specific way of working is reflected in the fact that CREED is never advertised or celebrities are hired for the sake of brand promotion. The perception of the house as elitist also stems from the fact that their products are available in only a few outlets.

All CREED fragrances are made in one location, in a workshop located in the French forest of Fontainebleau where about 30 people handle bottling by hand. No factories, no market testing. The perfume is never released until it is approved by the main perfumer Olivier Creed, for which it sometimes takes up to five years. It is this deviation from the pressure of continuous production of new fragrances, which is followed by most production companies, that keeps the quality of fragrances high above others because it is never endangered by meeting deadlines. However, it seems that this policy is very effective because the house doubles its sales every year.

Olivier compares the creation of fragrant harmonies to art. As is the case with painting, when inspiration comes, he tries to use it immediately, which is why he built a small laboratory near his bedroom.

When he worked on Silver Mountain Water, a perfume characterized by “indecisive notes of tea and black currant” (worn by David Bowie, among others), he remembers: “I knew something was missing in the formula, but I couldn’t figure out what. And then I woke up once sure that what it was missing was a note of alpine wood. I went to the lab and prepared the mixture. I knew immediately that I got the scent I wanted, “he told the Independent.

Description: olivier in laboratory

The romantic fragrance Love in White, inspired by spring in Fontainebleau, was created by Olivier in 2005. “Everything looked so beautiful and optimistic. It was as if something wonderful was about to be born. I thought that’s how love begins, with all it needs to experience and anticipate. I wanted to capture this mood in one perfume using white flowers, like magnolia, hyacinth, and daffodil. “

Love in White is made from ingredients he, by himself, collected on five continents during his travels. The fragrance opens with aromas of orange from the Spanish south, middle notes are rice, Egyptian iris, jasmine from the Italian coast, narcissus from the French Riviera, magnolia from the mountains of Guatemala and Bulgarian rose. The base of the perfume consists of vanilla from Java, Calabrian amber, and Indian sandalwood. This is a favorite perfume of two former American first ladies: Michelle Obama and Laura Bush, which is why it is sometimes called the scent of the White House.

Today, a seventh-generation perfumer works in the house. Erwin Creed took his place next to his father. The two travel together, searching for those precious ingredients and launching fragrances that lead CREED in a new direction. Father and son together created some of the most sought-after perfumes at the moment: 2006. Original Santal for men and women, a fragrance in which the royal and spiritual splendor of India meet, a unique blend of Mysore sandalwood, fiery cinnamon, warm vanilla, and tonka bean; In 2007, Virgin Island Water was born – a perfume that won four out of five stars in the New York Times critique; 2008. Love in Black, a perfume of evening elegance, inspired by Jacqueline Onassis, packaged in special black bottles made of sand that can only be found on the Greek islands; 2009. Acqua Fiorentina inspired by the Renaissance city of Florence as well as Sublime Vanille, the first in the new Royal Exclusives collection.

Description: erwin creed

CREED celebrated its 250th anniversary in 2010 with the opening of its only U.S. store on Madison 794 Avenue in Manhattan and the creation of Aventus, a men’s, fruity-woody perfume. Napoleon Bonaparte was the inspiration for this combination of fragrant notes that evoke his life, ideas, perseverance, war, peace, and love. Top notes of Aventus are an embodiment of fruity freshness provided by black currant, apple, pineapple, and bergamot. Middle notes are sweet aromas of rose, smoky birch, purity of Moroccan jasmine, and intense patchouli. The composition is closed by the scent of oakmoss, vanilla, musk, and amber.

Aventus is perhaps CREED’s most famous fragrance of all, a real sensation around the world, the perfume that has perhaps marked the 21th century, with its popularity and ubiquity.

How to Apply Perfume

by Style & Scents Global


Posted on 10/15/2018


private label perfume manufacturers in uae

Applying perfume is the simplest of matters — simply spray, dab, or in the case of a solid perfume compact, swipe. (Do avoid rubbing the wrists together after application, to prevent "crushing" the scent).

Some women enjoy spritzing their perfume into the air and then walking through it. While this does work, it also lets quite a bit of the fragrance go to waste, so it's not the best method if you're on a budget.

Always apply perfume before putting on your clothes and jewelry.

Some fragrances will leave permanent stains on fabrics, metals, and pearls. (If you want to risk perfuming your clothing — say, spraying some scent on a scarf — be sure to test it on a hidden area of the fabric first, and spray lightly).

How to make the Fragrance Last Longer

by Style & Scents Global


Posted on 10/28/2018


private label perfume manufacturers in uae

There are a few tricks to help your fragrance last longer. For instance, a scent will fade faster when skin is dry. Applying fragrance-free moisturizer to your body is an excellent preparation for applying fragrance, and will help you get more bang for your perfume buck.

You can also help your perfume to go the distance by applying some petroleum jelly to your skin, and then applying your scent on top of that. The perfume droplets will cling to the petroleum jelly — rather than sinking into your pores — which can reduce or eliminate the need to reapply fragrance later in the day.

Layering products from the same line is another effective way to make a fragrance last. You might use the scented body gel, treat skin with the body lotion, and then spray the eau du parfum spray on top. The combination of products will help the scent to maintain fullness and extend throughout the day.

How to Remove Fragrance From Skin

by Style & Scents Global


Posted on 11/07/2018


private label perfume manufacturers in uae

When you are surrounded by an unpleasant smell, all you want to do is get away from it. But what if the offending scent is coming from your own skin? Whether you tried on a stinker at the perfume counter or got spritzed by an over-eager salesperson, here are some handy tips for removing perfume when you need to do it pronto.

1.   Hit the drugstore for witch hazel or rubbing alcohol (both inexpensive). Wet a cotton ball with either, and use to wipe skin clean.

2.   Create a paste with equal parts of baking soda and warm water. Rub it into the skin and let sit for up to ten minutes, before rinsing with warm water.

3.    Whip up a dressing by mixing equal parts white vinegar and olive oil. Wipe onto the affected area of skin and let sit for several minutes. Wash off with water and unscented soap.

4.    Not that you'd want to waste perfectly good vodka, but in a pinch, you can use soak cotton balls with unflavored vodka, apply to the skin and wipe away.

5.    If you know you'll be out trying on perfumes, carry travel wipes, a mini-sized bottle of Purell, or individually wrapped alcohol swabs in your purse. For best effect, apply quickly to any unwanted scent on your skin.

Difference between EDP, EDT, AND EDC

#1. EDP (Eau de Parfum)

This has the strongest concentration out of the three and is therefore the most precious of the all. Perfect for your daily life, the EDP will stick to your skin almost the entire day. So you need not worry about re application of the scent.

#2. EDT (Eau de Toilette)

The EDT or eau de toilette is more concentrated, and is commonly found in perfumeries. Owing to its light concentration, the scent will last on your skin for about half a day. However, the amount of fragrance applied and quality of the skin are other factors that might change the duration of the scent having its effect.

#3. EDC (Eau De Cologne)

EDC stands for Eau De Cologne and is the kind of fragrance you would use when you need a real light fragrance. It is a very light and simple fragrance which is appropriate for both men and women.

FINDING THE RIGHT SCENT.

The world of perfumery is one rich in a myriad of scents and aromas, each one crafted to tease the senses and evoke different emotions. With a multitude of fragrances to choose from, how do you find the perfect scent for you? Here, we will walk you through some steps in testing a perfume that a number of perfume connoisseurs swear by.

  • Wear it on your skin

“Perfume comes to life only on your skin,” says Michael Edwards, a British fragrance expert and the pioneer editor of the largest guide to perfume classification, Fragrance of the World. Like most fragrance experts, Edwards recommends testing a perfume by lightly spraying it on your wrist or at the back of your hand. But try not to sniff away immediately. Most perfumes contain alcohol, which can easily overwhelm your sense of smell. Try to let the alcohol evaporate first, before you smell the perfume. Even if it is not alcohol-based, wait for around 20 seconds before you take a sniff. This gives the fragrance enough time to flourish on your skin and give you a realistic idea of how it actually smells.

  • Use a scent blotter

Spritzing perfume or dabbing a sample on the skin may not always work for everybody. Some individuals have oily skin, which emits its own unique odour that can mix with the scent of a perfume sample. Meanwhile, other people have a habit of applying scented lotion on their body, which may compromise the authentic scent of a perfume. In cases like these, the best way to test a perfume is to use a fragrance blotter or a scent strip.

Scent strips are porous materials that can soak up perfume and give you a good idea of how the perfume smells. You can spray the perfume directly on a scent blotter, or you can try how the pros do it: Spray the perfume in the air for two to three times, in a downward motion. Hold the scent strip and wave it through the veil of perfume. Afterwards, fan it in front of your nose and inhale the scent. Using fragrance blotters or scent strips is ideal for people who do not want to try a variety of fragrances and smell like a hodgepodge of varied perfumes at the end of the day.

  • Avoid overworking your sense of smell

Experts say you should not go over three to four scents at a time, as the brain will have difficulty identifying the scents. It is also best to test a perfume in the morning, when the olfactory system is in its best condition. Give yourself a break in between testing perfumes. You may also try asking the sales personnel if they have coffee beans which you can smell to refresh your senses.

  • Decide on what you want

Before you enter a world filled with scents and bombard your sense of smell with a variety of fragrances, you should have a clear idea of what kind of perfume you are looking for. Do you want to wear a fresh and floral fragrance? A spicy or fruity scent? Or something rich and musky? Knowing the type of fragrance you want can save you time and effort later on. For example, you can immediately ask the sales personnel to present you with their best selection of floral fragrances, and you can start trying them on.

TIP: Most perfume connoisseurs say fruity and floral scents are best to use in the summer, while rich and spicy fragrances are most suitable during the colder season. Wear a subtle scent during the day, and use a more potent fragrance in the evening.
