Hello friends I am working as Perfumery consultant at Next Care Inc. Lots of my friends get confused while choosing the appropriate perfume for the most important woman in their life. I hope this article will help in clarifying doubts. If you have any queries please mail me at email@example.com
It’s always tricky, buying perfume for someone else. When it comes to gifting fragrance, it’s not about playing it safe. Perfume is not an intellectual thing. It’s very personal. You have to use what you already know about someone, but you also need to trust your instincts. When you are smelling a fragrance, you try to really imagine the person wearing it. You can guess that someone who wears light colors all the time might like the idea of lightness. She is going to want something that’s pure and airy. Try to imagine her wearing a heavy, spicy fragrance, and it just doesn’t fit.
Getting the women in your life a great gift comes with a lot of anxiety. You want to get your mom the perfect present to say “thank you” for everything she’s done for you, but what sums up a lifetime of thankfulness? You certainly want to impress your sister with something that says "sisterhood" more than "friendship," and you're probably looking for a little trinket to give your best girlfriend to make her think of you whenever she looks at or uses it. Of course, you want to get your wife a gift so special that she’ll be singing your gift-giving praises for years to come. But what exactly should that present be? Smell is the strongest sense we have.
In fact, olfaction (sense of smell) lies somewhere between emotion and memory. It reacts even before the receptors in the brain can process the message. Hence fragrances make the most personal gifts and are high up on all gifting occasions. Since fragrances are personal experiences, there are no good or bad ones, just the ones that talk to your soul and lift your energies. While giving a fragrance we want to gift one that she will love and cherish. And each time they wear perfume, they will think of you. So, yes gifting a fragrance is a powerful act as it not only evokes memories but also connects you to the memory of the receiver.
But entering a perfume counter or logging on a perfume site with multiple brands and different genres of fragrances fighting for your attention can be a difficult task. We asked an industry insider on how to select the best perfumes for your friends and family. Ms. Ritu, Managing partner of NEXT CARE INC and a leading fragrance expert shares her foolproof guide to gifting perfumes…
Here are some tips from the discussion:
If you are buying a perfume for someone in your inner circle and you know their favourite perfume, then finding the right fragrance to gift is the least challenging. Go to a perfume store, and the fragrance expert should be able to suggest something similar, or in the same family.
