Correct Usage of Perfumes

5/4/2012 8:25:35 AM | by Anonymous


Perfumes are usually applied to give ourselves a noticeable scent. We normally expect that the reaction of people who will smell us is positive. However, perfumes have different effect not only to the people exposed to the scent but also to the user.


The advantage of perfumes is it last longer compared to other fragrances. It means that even though they are costly, it is more economical in the long run since you do not have to reapply more often. Although this quality is beneficial to you, it may not be to the surrounding people. This especially applies in the workplace. An office is an enclosed space and any scent released tends to engulf the whole place. The aroma of perfume is strong enough to serve as an air freshener for an entire room. Since the scent lasts for a long time, people are exposed to the scent the entire working day. This may have bad effect to your scent sensitive colleagues. Susceptible individuals can demonstrate nausea, dizziness, headache, sinus congestion and other symptoms; and trigger health reactions of those with allergies, asthma ad migraine.


In order to prevent the said instances to happen, we can show our consideration by not applying too much perfume. Putting on small amount of perfume on pulse points like wrists, back of the ear and neck should be sufficient. Perfumes can turn into an awful scent if mixed with perspiration. This can be avoided by spraying on the hair instead. The three types of perfumes are parfum, eau de parfum and eau de toilette. The differences between them are the percentage of perfume concentrates they contain and their prices. The purest the form, the more expensive it is. If you need to wear a perfume for everyday use, one can select cheaper and less concentrated eau de toilette but still holds the same fragrance as parfum.
