If you can invest so much of your time to decide on your looks, then why not a little more to choose the right fragrance for your special day. Although this may not seem like a big deal, but it can make a difference just to think that you would go out of your way to choose a perfume that is special for your wedding day. One note of advice for your perfume shopping would be to start well in advance. The reason behind this is mentioned in the tips mentioned below.
So what do you need to consider when you are selecting a perfume for your wedding? Here are a few things to look out for
While shopping for your perfume, the first thing you need to remember is to go alone. Do not think about taking anybody along with you. Instead, choose a fragrance that you would want to have on when you walk down the aisle. You should make this personal and intimate choice by yourself for your special day.
The day you go to buy your perfume make sure that you do not put on any kind of fragrance. This will help you to make the right choice and you can make the right decision of choosing the perfume you want to put for your wedding day.
Generally, when people buy a perfume, they look at the brand or bottle and smell a tester strip, well, instead of doing that, it is advisable that you try the fragrance on yourself to see if it really suits you and not your senses. Remember the perfume should bring out your personality. Secondly, when you test it on your skin, you will get the true essence of the fragrance after the alcohol is evaporated. This will also help you to understand how good the perfume really is.
When you are testing any fragrance, it is advisable not to just fall for it on the spot, instead try it on and wait for a while. This is because when you apply a fresh spray, the scent is strong however, after some time, it settles down. This is when you get to know the actual fragrance of the perfume. The recommended time for this is generally an hour. Secondly, the outcome of the fragrance also depends on the type of skin you have. For example, an intense fragrance is recommended for people who have oily skin.
There are some perfumes, which comes in a combo deal of a body lotion and a fragrance. You can consider getting this combo deal since it will enhance the fragrance and make it last longer. The body lotion is perfect to apply over your body when you are done with your shower, as then the fragrance will give you an enhanced feel. The same thing is also applicable for grooms as you do have perfumes that come with an after-shave lotion.
When you go shopping for your fragrance, do not test out more than three at the same day. This will only make it more confusing for you to decide. Even these three fragrances that you test should not be done at the same time, instead give it a little time so that it can settle down before you try something new.
