Some people equate smelling great with feeling great. Such a mindset is what makes the fragrance industry the billion-dollar industry that it is. Hollywood stars, athletes and musicians are now coming up with their own fragrance in order to make some money thanks to this very popular product.
Just think of a regular day that people have. Odds are that before they step out of their home to start their day, they will give themselves a few spritzes from their favorite perfume. Doing this has become part of their regular hygiene routine and not putting on perfume will probably make them as uncomfortable as if they did not take a bath that day. They will probably even feel as if something is missing in their day.
This fascination with perfume did not just happen all of a sudden. On the contrary, the history of fragrance will show that perfumes have been around for hundreds of years. What has changed is the technology behind the creation of perfume. The good news is that the fragrance industry has gotten better at creating the scents that men and women would want to put on themselves. It has reached a point where even though there are so many perfumes out in the market, the industry still has not reached its saturation point.
Many of these perfumes continue to make a profit for their company and in fact, many companies offer more than one perfume or scent. The reason they do this is to take advantage of the different tastes that people have.
The challenge for the buyer is choosing the right perfume. It is a challenge because of the sheer number of available fragrances in the market. To make the choice easier, begin by figuring out which types of fragrances you prefer. As many as the brands may be, they can all be classified into one of six types. These are chypre, gourmand, florals, fougere, orientals and citrus. If these sound unfamiliar, there is no need to worry. In a majority of cases, people simply know the perfume brand that they prefer but do not really bother to find out its classification. However, knowing the six classifications may make it easier for people who are just starting to use perfume to decide. Some of the scents are exactly what they are named. For example, florals mainly smell like the scent of flowers. Chypre, however, may be unfamiliar. This is a scent that is best described as mossy or leathery. Gourmand scents are sweet and are inspired from the scent of food. Fougere scents are both fresh and floral.
