WHEN buying and choosing a fragrance it's easy to be overwhelmed because of the many choices available.
Before you go shopping, take a minute to think about what you want. If it's a present, are you buying it because you want to buy a fragrance or because you've been told to buy a fragrance?
The initial instinct is to try out all the testers all over your own body. Don't. Rather ask for fragrance blotters to spray on.
When you smell the fragrance, don't just smell it once. Give it a few minutes. The scent will take a while to develop. And never smell the fragrance from the bottle. The fragrance that has been deposited around the spray has been exposed to the air and bacteria and it will not give you the true smell of the fragrance.
