Many of us have perfume bottles in our dressing rooms which we spray every morning without thinking twice about it and venture out of our doors. People use the same fragrance over the years. However, its good to have a signature scent but take some time off and look around you. You would find that the perfume market is altering and innovating itself with every passing year.
Even in fragrances there are styles & fads which are facilitated by steady supply of new releases and intrepid scientific progress. So now, unlike clothing, you dont have to wear the same fragrance every day. Selecting a scent which goes with an occasion, flavor or mood is a thrilling idea.
These days its unbelievably easy to discover new scents in the market because perfume is a multi-billion dollar industry and so is its expenditure on advertising. Based on such advertisements, even people who arent too curious in scents can probably list down few of them. Billboards and kiosks are sporting colorful perfume ads and magazines are carrying provoking campaigns only to fetch little attention of yours.
In the year 2008, the perfume industry witnessed the release of around 600 fragrances. The market observers predicted an upsurge in scents in the year 2009 which had tinge of lime, cream, profound amber, citrus pungent, oriental flowers, flowers with fruit & flowers with wood, orange flower or rose violet. In the year 2010, scents are predicted to lighten a bit on flower aromas whereas greens will intensify & overcooked gourmand scents will mix with patchouli. Orientals and vanilla will develop something luscious & bizarre.

Finding the perfect Scent


While selecting the prefect fragrance, make sure that it is in sync with your persona. Perfume tones can vary from intense, gloomy, and mysterious vanillas, sandalwood, and patchouli, to subtle, gregarious, and romantic citrus, rose and jasmine.
Before buying a scent question yourself on which aspect of your persona do you wish to represent and elevate. Buying a scent is almost like shopping for a pair of footwear; you will never understand which fragrance suits you the most until and unless you try it once.
Among the different types of scents like spicy, fresh, citrus and floral select the one which suits your body type. Buy a perfume which makes you feel romantic on day one, luminous and dazzling - the next day, energetic on the third day and playful and zesty on the fourth.
Just like relishing an excellent wine, perfumes aura is appreciated in layers. A normal perfume constitutes three notes namely, top, middle and bottom.
The top layer constitutes first fragrance and usually fades off in the air soon after you apply it. The fragrance that lasts after 10 minutes is the middle layer and stays for up to two hours. The bottom shades are the strongest and lingers on throughout the day. All these aromas are then combined and assembled with the help of alcohol base.
One of the most vital aspects in selecting the perfect scent is to be aware of your own body odor. If you love wearing a scent before leaving home, then try to venture out without applying any perfume before trying one at a shop. This way you will find that you favor a floral and subtle fragrance in the daytime and a peppery and zesty fragrance at night.

Do and Don`ts while applying a scent


  • Spray once and dont wipe it all over your body. If you wish to squirt more then reduce the effect with coffee beans
  • Rub an oil-based skin solution to accentuate the time span of the perfume
  • In winter season wear stronger fragrances as cold deteriorates concentration.
  • For summers opt for fruity flowery aromas.
  • Do not apply perfume directly on your clothes to avoid staining. Apply it on wrists, behind knees, besides earlobes, neck and inner ankles.
  • Excess oils in scents are hazardous. Immediate exposure to sun after applying it can result in everlasting marks on your skin
  • Apply scents an hour before venturing out of your houses.
  • For a long lasting aroma, use scents in levels with soap, body lotion, moisturizer, talc.

Some of the Common scents


Liquid Scents


Essence Oils

: Essence oils can be added to light bulb rings, which release a rupture of aroma when the bulb is on. You can also include essence oils to potpourri to rejuvenate aromas.

Linen Sprays

: Linen sprays can be sprayed on bed linens, towels, and clothes. They last for sometime after applying and are available in variety of fragrances.

Room Sprays

: Room sprays act speedily and are momentary. When sprayed they provide a rupture of delicate scent instantaneously.

Plug-ins

: Plug-ins can be either in liquid form or solid form. Plug-ins loads a small or medium-sized room with aroma using nominal warmth from an electrical opening. The disadvantage of plug-ins is that it stains walls quite often and leads to allergy attacks if the room is too small.
olid Scents

Potpourri
: Potpourri is a blend of dried flowers, crop/fruit seeds, and spices. It can be boiled in solid or liquid form, or left unwrapped in a basket. The fragrance lingers on the room for three to six months.
Candles
: Select candles from a range of scents, hues, sizes, and patterns. Votive, pillar and jar fits various purposes. The fragrance of a candle last as long as the candle does. They are good for exteriors. Citronella candles helps in keeping the mosquitoes at bay besides adding a homey atmosphere.
Cinnamon Brooms
: Cinnamon brooms have the intense fragrance of cinnamon, which steadily lightens over time. Apt for adding aroma to wardrobes, cellars, or other zones where odors must be veiled. They can be chaotic, demanding frequent cleaning.
Incense
: Economical yet smoky, burning incense is a way to ward off other odors. Constant use of incense in the same area over and over again elevates the time span of the scent.
