Valentine’s Day Gifting: Grab These Luxury Perfumes *On Sale* For Bae Before They Sell Out!

In every country I have ever visited or on any vacation I have ever taken, I have never given up on a chance to hoard on luxury perfumes. Why? Because each scent, be it from any luxe beauty brand, has an emotion of its own. And if the emotion or the feel of a perfume matches yours, it’s yours for life. Let’s say, as a buyer, the trends or the brand of perfume doesn’t intrigue me as much as its notes do, especially the base notes, as they last for the longest. It’s all about the juice baby! Not all best selling perfumes are the new launches, rather many are the classics because their composition (top notes, heart notes and base notes) is acceptable to a larger audience.

Notes of A Perfume

Top notes of a perfume vanish within fifteen minutes of its application and heart notes or middle notes stay for about thirty minutes before vanishing into the thin air. It’s base notes that stay for six to twenty-four hours depending on a fragrance’s density or brand’s claim. If you’re looking for the strongest, go for Eau de parfum (EDP) and if you are looking at something lighter, go for Eau de toilette (EDT). 

Perfume companies also focus more on creating timeless fragrances rather than new, experimental ones as they know, a classic can bring them millions of dollars for decades. Perfumers usually run to Grasse and the nearby areas in France for the same as the place has been creating whiffs for more than 400 years now due to its welcoming climatic conditions for flowers.   

How To Select & Use Your Whiff?

Tip: When buying a fragrance, the scent of top notes would be stronger but concentrate on the base notes as that’s what you’ll smell like, all day long. While applying it, go for the skin instead of clothes as the warmth of skin diffuses the perfume better and for the longest. Apply it on the wrist, back of the ears, underneath the jawline, inside of the elbow and behind the knees as your skin is thinner in these areas. Don’t rub it after application. That’s how the French do it. They also prefer EDT over EDP as they believe your scent shouldn’t be overpowering.

The best thing about luxury perfumes is that if you’ve found your scent then it’s not going anywhere, anytime soon. Perfume is one of the ways you express yourself and present yourself to others so you want to make sure you pick the right one or keep experimenting until you find the perfect one for yourself. And if you really, really like someone, nothing would say it better than a bottle of perfume as the scent you choose for them will only show how well you know them. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it would be a romantic gesture, especially, when you can get your hands on on-sale luxury whiffs.
