How do You buy Perfume today?

Can you remember how you purchased your latest fragrance?

You will probably have bought it in either a department store, perfumery or in the duty-free section.

We suspect this is how it went:

You enter the beautifully presented section of the store and you are greeted with a cloud of fragrance.

As you walk around, the charming store assistants offer you one wonderful perfume after the other. Some you smell on a card, others are sprayed onto your wrists.

Eventually, you can’t smell anything and you are totally confused.

However, you are in a rush and choose the perfume that you liked most from memory.

Does this sound familiar?

Don’t misunderstand us, buying a fragrance in the perfumery section of a department store or duty free is a wonderful perfume experience™ and you would not want to miss it.

However, from a perfumer’s perspective, it is not the ideal way to shop for perfume.

If you would like to find out about what the ideal perfume experience would be from a perfumer’s perspective, then please refer to the tab called ‘Ideal Perfume Experience’.

What is the Ideal Perfume Experience™?

We believe the best way to try a new perfume was how the old style perfumeries used to do it with the clientele on a one-to-one basis:

  • You took your time when visiting a perfumer,
  • You tried a variety of scents in a neutral environment,
  • You wore your short-listed perfumes for at least a day before you finalised your selection, and
  • Only then did you buy your favourite amongst the fragrances you sampled.

A fragrance is very personal, it is part of your persona and embodies the invisible aura you radiate.

Unfortunately, our modern lives do not offer us the chance any longer to fully appreciate a perfume before we buy it. We tend to be in a rush when we pass through an airport or the cloud of fragrance in the perfumery.

This is why we have developed the personal Perfume Experience™ Box in the form of a Fragrance Library.

The Reasons?

Here are our reasons why:

Maximum 3 Fragrances

Your nose is designed to detect differences!

We all know that we can’t smell the scent we are wearing after a while. Our noses are there to warn us of imminent danger, e.g. a fire, food that has gone off. The best way to do this, is to keep familiar & safe scents in the background and instead continuously stay alert for new smells, i.e. a potential danger.

As perfumers we know that after 3 perfumes the receptors in the nose become saturated.

This is why some people offer coffee beans to clean the nose. It is, however, scientifically proven that this does not work and it is easy to understand why:

    • It is unlikely that putting something else into your nose, removes what is already there.
    • When you have a nice meal, you eat a sorbet between courses and drink coffee at the end.

Our suggestion is that your nose needs to time to naturally cleans itself. From experience, we know the time needed is approximately 3 minutes.

This means the following:

    • the wonderful cloud of scents you walk into at the perfumery section, immediately begins to block your nose
    • with each new fragrance you smell, your nose will focus on the difference between what it has smelled previously (and what saturated the receptors in your nose) and the new smell (i.e. the potential ‘danger’).

As you are in a rush, you don’t have the ‘time’ to give your nose a rest so that it can ‘clean’ itself before smelling the next perfume

Your Skin

We have all experienced that a wonderful perfume can smell superb on one person but not that exciting on another.

Perfumery Houses work very hard to minimise this phenomenon but it still happens.

This is why we should test a fragrance on our skin.

You are, however, in a rush and the charming sales assistants have already sprayed your two wrists but you really like this last scent. Hence, you spray it a little further up onto your arm.

Now, … this becomes confusing but you like the initial smell on your skin and because you are in a rush you purchase the perfume.

At home though, you discover that you don’t really like the scent on your skin after a while.

Over Time

We have all experienced how perfumes unfold and develop over time.

The top note shows itself immediately, the heart note shortly thereafter but the base note needs a little time to reveal itself.

Do you have the time to enjoy the perfume in its entirety when you browse the perfumery isles and try one scent after the other?

We are sure you have come across scenarios where you have bought a perfume only to discover that you don’t really like what it smells like after a little while.

At Home

A fragrance smell different in your home environment than in the department store.

We have all experienced situations where we liked what we smelled in the department store but don’t really love it when we are in our own 4 walls.

This phenomenon is easily explained:

For years perfumers struggled to recreate the wonderful scent of a rose in a garden or field.

Finally, they discovered that the smells that are in the air around the rose bloom have a significant impact on what we smell when bend down to smell a rose.

Essentially the same happens in your home. The scent of your own, unique home mingles with the perfume you have just bought. It adds itself to your new perfume as part of its ‘top’, ‘heart’ or ‘base’ note and this combination might not be to your liking.

Effectively, you create a new, unique perfume through the smells that are in your personal environment.

Peace & Quiet

Our noses are impressionable and we need to give them time, peace & quite to discover and really appreciate a fragrance.

Within a bustling department store our noses don’t get a chance to fully experience a perfume, as our senses are in overdrive:

    • eyes: there are numerous displays all around us that are illuminated and some of them even flashing, to attract our attention.
    • ears: a cacophony of sounds envelops us and it is exciting to be distracted by all we hear.
    • touch: we love touching the wonderful bottles, packs and beautiful displays around.
    • taste: did we just try this lovely piece of chocolate?

As you can see, shopping is a wonderful experience for our senses and we love it!

However, did we stop think for one second about our nose? It has been in overdrive working to absorb the millions of scents that are floating all around us. Every second there is a new one.

Is this really the best environment to focus on a new perfume to try and experience it fully?

Our noses need time, peace & quite to smell.

Just run this little experiment or analogy:

    • the next time you eat something, stop before you put into your mouth, and
    • smell it first.
    • then when you chew it, do nothing else and just taste it.

Do you notice the difference?

Do you remember that vast majority of what you taste, is actually smelled? You can only taste ‘sweet’, ‘sour’, ‘bitter’ and ‘salty. The rest you taste when eating, is actually smelled by your nose.

Knowing this, should you not give your nose time, peace & quite to smell fully?

These are some of the reasons why a perfumer evaluates a fragrance over time in a quite and neutral environment.

With this in mind, we developed the personal Perfume Experience™ Box in the form of a Fragrance Library.

Sit back, relax and savour each perfume and its evolution, just like you would with a book in your library.
