Benefits Of Perfumes
BENEFITS OF PERFUME
Perfume doesn’t just smell nice – it can bring back memories, give you confidence and make you feel good too. Read on to find out how!
1. IT CAN MAKE YOU SMILE
As if perfume couldn’t up its game anymore… It’s official – the smell of something you like can boost your mood and make you smile. And what better way to make your dad grin from ear-to-ear this Father’s Day than with his favourite bottle of perfume? Notes such as coriander, patchouli and vanilla will give your dad that pick-me-up-and-conquer-the-world-feeling. Le Beau by Jean Paul Gaultier is an aromatic woody scent with notes of tonka bean, coconut wood and bergamot that will make him smile one spritz at a time.
2. IT GIVES YOU A FRESH FEELING
No matter what the day has in store for you, there’s no better feeling than spritzing a shower-fresh fragrance to put a pep in your step. From zesty citrus to cool aquatic notes, there are plenty of perfumes out there that can have you feeling as fresh as a daisy. Lazy Sunday Morning by Maison Margiela is no exception. Capturing the delicate fragrance of cotton sheets and silky-smooth skin, showers are SO yesterday!
3. IT CAN BOOST CONFIDENCE
It has been proven that smelling your favourite scent reduces stress and even improves self-confidence. Whoa! And when you’re wearing your signature scent, who doesn’t instantly feel happier getting a compliment or two? Our point exactly. We’re loving YSL Libre for her to give us that boost we need.
4. IT HAS SO MUCH PERSONALITY
We could sit here and reel off a long list of how perfumes can help evolve your personality. But we think Gorgeous by Michael Kors does it better than we ever could. With a lush white floral bouquet livened by smoky tobacco and a powerful wood finale, it certainly knows how to make an entrance. It’s empowering, invigorating and gives women the confidence to feel good in their own skin. How’s that for a personality-packed perfume?
5. IT CAN HELP YOU STAND OUT
It’s time you really put your perfume into perspective. To know just how life-changing it really is, we challenge you to wear a sophisticated scent to your next job interview. It will help you stand out from the crowd and define your incredible personality. We recommend Paco Rabanne Phantom, which blends lemon, lavender and woody vanilla to help you feel confident. Pair with a super-smart outfit and – voila – you’re good to go…
6. IT’S A PICK-ME-UP DURING THE DAY
Wave goodbye to the 3pm slump and say hello to feeling energised! A spritz or two of your favourite fragrance will help chase those post-lunch blues away. If you want to get the same buzz out of your perfume as you do your daily caffeine hit, get a load of Maison Margiela’s signature scent. Aptly named ‘Coffee Break’, it conveys the vibrant feeling of a busy coffee shop through refreshing notes of lavender and spearmint. But you’ll actually be able to sleep at night!
7. IT ACTS AS AN APHRODISIAC
Looking for love? Well, we bet you didn’t know there are aphrodisiac scents in perfume! Boss Bottled Night by Hugo Boss is your secret weapon of seduction. You only have to smell the rich and intense woody scent to understand why that hottie just started flirting with you at the bar (can we get a whoop whoop?)…
8. IT BRINGS BACK MEMORIES
There are life-changing perfumes, and then there are the ones that bring back memories. Whether you’re smelling a scent of someone you miss or revisiting one you wore on your favourite holiday, you’ll benefit from the emotional release that comes with smelling a nostalgic perfume.
Prepare to experience a whole waft of emotions when you smell a special fragrance. For example, Calvin Klein’s CK One smells like youth and freedom in a bottle, capturing those care-free moments when all you had to worry about was your next adventure.
9. IT CAN HELP YOU RELAX
Hard day at the office? Tired from running after the kids? Feeling nervous about something you’ve got coming up? If you’re feeling a bit stressed and burnt out, douse yourself in your favourite signature scent aaaand breathe! Trust us – pampering yourself with perfume is the perfect way to relax and unwind. With notes of dynamizing ginger, aromatic lavender and a unique denim cotton accord, D by Diesel will help soothe your mind, calm your spirits and restore you back to your brilliant best.
10. IT’S THE FINISHING TOUCH TO AN OUTFIT
No outfit’s complete without a spritz or two of your signature scent. Whether you’re hanging out with your mates or heading on a hot date, finish off your look with Good Girl Blush for her by Carolina Herrera or Armani Code for him and you’ll feel ready to take on the world. Pssst, they’re also the perfect perfumes for soothing pre-date jitters.
212 BY CAROLINA HERRERA
Who said subtle perfumes can’t be packed with personality? Certainly not Carolina Herrera! The intriguing and oh-so-inviting formula of 212 bursts onto the scene with a blend of orange leaves, rum and white flowers. All it takes is one spritz, and you’ll be transported to a tropical oasis – no plane ticket necessary.
SIGNATURE BY CHLOÉ
When it comes to the best subtle perfume for ladies, it’s no surprise that a Chloé fragrance got the call-up. True to the Chloé brand, Signature offers a clean and fresh fragrance profile with notes of lychee, rose and freesia taking centre stage. However, it’s not long before an undercurrent of amber and cedarwood sweep in to give this scent an unexpected, earthy edge.
