Can a fragrance smell differently on different people?


Yes, fragrances can smell differently on different people. Everyone has his or her own body chemistry and individual smell. A fragrance depends on both the condition of the skin and the individual’s diet.


Can a perfume influence moods?


Yes, various studies show that fragrances can influence moods. Some studies show the impact scents have on moods may come partly from memories they invoke. Therefore, a mood change may vary from person to person or at different times. A pleasant fragrance can both soothe and stimulate.


How can you choose a fragrance for someone else?


A good rule of thumb is to stay with a classic lighter floral fragrance that is usually acceptable to almost everyone. Stick with the best sellers or give a gift certificate so the recipient can sample at a later date.


Can perfume leave stains on cloths?


Normally, they don’t because most of the ingredients evaporate without leaving a trace. We do not recommend the spraying of perfumes directly on cloths because some fabrics may stain. If stain occurs, they can usually come out when washed.


How should a fragrance be applied?


Apply directly to pulse points---inside the wrist, behind the ears, at the temples, behind the knees, the back of the neck, the cleavage area, between the toes, ankles, and thighs.


Are Natural substances better than synthetic?


Not necessarily, synthetics are of equal value to the perfumer. There are extremely expensive natural components and reasonable synthetics and vice versa. Some natural synthetic odor components are more stable than the natural ingredients. Therefore, they are more desirable to the perfumer.


Why does the scent from fragrance oils last longer on your body than perfume sprays?


It all has to do with the ethyl (alcohol)content of the Perfume spray. It’s the ethyl that caused the smell to dissipate.


What are benefits of synthetic oils?


  1. 1.   Synthetics replace diminishing supplies of natural raw materials. For example, Proctor and Gamble alone uses nine times the world’s annual supply of lavender!
  2. 2.   Synthetics allow perfumers to produce new scents not known in nature. They provide floral scents such as lilac and lily, which cannot be extracted from natural flower.
  3. 3.   Synthetics provide consistent quality, whereas climactic and other conditions can affect naturally occurring raw materials.
  4. 4.   Synthetics components make some fragrances available that would otherwise be unaffordable.

Essential oils are more costly. If they are not pure, they also contain synthetic chemicals.
