Discover the Right Scent at the Right Price with a Discount FragranceVisit Majon's Article Marketing Directory for more great articles
Choosing a proper fragrance isn't always easy - especially when shopping online. There are so many to choose from, and it's difficult to know which will work best when you are unable to personally try each fragrance. Online shops often carry a variety of discount fragrance items such as perfumes and colognes along with other specialty products for skin care, hair care, and even aromatherapy products such as scented candles.
When you spritz a fragrance onto your skin, four notes categorize each scent. The top note is the strongest scent, which occurs within the first five to ten minutes of spraying the perfume or cologne. This may contain citrus scents or fragrances such as aldehydes, greens, or delicate florals. Next is the middle note or heart note, which occurs about twenty to thirty minutes after the initial spray. This means the alcohol has evaporated and only floral type scents remain.
The base note occurs about two hours after the initial spray. It consists of fragrances such as sandalwood, vanilla, cedarwood, or other similar scents. Next comes the final note, which occurs due to your skin's chemistry.
When you wear a perfume for only a few minutes to try it out, you are only enjoying the initial fragrance, or the "top" note. But when you try a perfume for a day or two, you'll get to experience all stages of its scents, and you'll know how it fairs during long workdays or for evenings out. You'll also discover whether or not you have any allergic reactions to the scent, including skin rashes, headaches, sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, etc.
It is especially important to sample perfumes when buying discount fragrances online. Although you're getting a discount on your fragrances, you can get stuck with perfume or cologne that you can't use. You'll have to buy several at full price to find the right one for you. *Hint: If you plan to try several fragrances and need to order the whole bottle instead of samples, be sure to order them all at once so you can combine shipping costs.
More Discount Fragrance Tips
Sample only a few perfumes so you won't become fatigued with the various scents. You might be required to pay a small amount for samples, but it's well worth it. If buying a discount fragrance online for a gift, be sure to buy the same brand he/she already uses. Don't guess at what scent your recipient might like. Perfume choices are personal, so it's wise to stick with what already works for them. There are also women's gift sets or men's gift sets that include perfume or cologne with a mini variety of fragrances.
When buying a totally new perfume online, look for detailed descriptions of the perfume, including its color and how it smells in comparison with other familiar items such as flowers or other perfumes. Look for a company with customer-friendly shopping, shipping, and return policies. Excessive shipping charges may cancel out any discounts if you're not careful. If you're looking for a particular brand name, make sure the site carries the actual brand name, not an imitation fragrance.
Some fragrance shops carry multiple products to complement your perfume or cologne such as body lotion, body cream, body spray, facial cream, cleansers, makeup remover, tanning lotions, hand cream, eye masks, night skin cream, and more. You can save time and money by shopping for discount fragrance and these products at one convenient online shop.
