How to choose a fragrance for your loved one
Whether it is for a special occasion, or just a surprise for your beloved, choosing the right fragrance is not an easy job. Due to the rich scale of fragrances, we may well get some help from the shipping assistant, but still, a certain risk of confusion exists. Testing dozens of aromas can make your head dizzy and unable to distinguish one scent from the other. Therefore, you should give yourself time to find out which fragrance is going to compliment your beloved’s individuality in the most charming way possible.
Before starting your “fragrant” search, try to find out what the targeted person likes and had already purchased. The assistant can help you better if you know what your girlfriend likes: pure fresh aromas; sweetish and extravagant ones, or simply Channel. Of course, with or without this information, we can give you some helpful tips to take into consideration when choosing the right fragrance.
Consider the occasion: When it will be worn?
In most cases, perfumes are created for a certain season and period of the day. For example, lighter fragrances are more appropriate for daily time, while intense ones should be worn at night. Think about the person you are giving the present to – does he or she will use it in the evening? Do they usually go to special events? In case, you’re picking the perfume as a gift for your significant other, it’s better to choose one that signals sensuality and romance.
Consider the perfume image: Will it match the one of your special person?
When going through a large selection of perfumes, pay attention to the whole image of the product, and think how it suits the ‘message’ you want to send to the person. For example, L’extase by Nina Ricci is clearly addressed to young, exclusively feminine girls with a playful and free spirit. In the same way, male fragrances might be created for the elegant gentlemen (Givenchy Gentlemen), or for the youthful sporty guy (Fendi Fan di Fendi Pour Homme Assoluto). You can easily notice the perfume’s target customer by simply checking the name of the fragrance, its appearance and advertising message.
Consider the style of the person: Floral or fruity notes?

Common presumptions tell us they are more shy, sweet and very feminine. If you give a floral perfume to that kind of girl, she will certainly like it. On the contrary, fans of fruity and citrus aromas are wild, youthful and free-spirited women. They are keen on sports, rock music and all outdoor activities. They have a good sense of humour and love having fun.
You can always pick the classics.
Some perfumes are well-known for their universality, everlasting appeal and charm. They suit personalities with different preferences and are loved by everyone. Here are some of them:

Let the scent itself to lead you, and to show you how it complements the image of your favourite person. For all that matters, a perfume is a charming accessory to a person’s individuality and certainly makes a timeless and intimate gift.
