While you're shopping for some new tank tops, it's a good idea to summarize your fragrance routine as well. A winter perfume with its yummy warm, spicy scent might weigh you down as the temperatures go up. Now is the time to explore the airy hints of floral or citrus aromas, those exclusively prepared to make summers all the more beautiful! Before you head out to find perfume for girls, here are some tips to keep in mind.
When it comes to perfume for girls, it is important to remember that everyone has their own skin chemistry that determines how a perfume will smell on them. The way a perfume will wear depends on the dryness of your skin, and upon the amount of time you spend in the sun. Look for a scent that reflects your personality. Romantics usually opt for a floral scent; free spirits might prefer a breezy citrus scent.
Whatever perfume for girls you choose, don't overdo it. Look for ways to layer your fragrance for longer lasting effect. Try a scented lotion or a body spray on the back of your wrist, knees, and neck after your shower. Some beauty editors only spray their inner elbows and behind their knees (scent rises) where the fragrance tends to stay moist.
Always dab or spray cologne on, never rub it in. Rubbing crushes the molecules and ruins the scent. Most fragrances only last about four hours so reapply at least once a day.
Drugstore aisles are now dedicated to celebrity perfumes. Britney, Lindsay, Mariah, and Hilary are joined this year by Avril, Leona, and Gwen. There's even Twilight perfume for girls for those hoping to attract a vampire!
Eau de parfums and perfumes are longer-lasting and heavier, and therefore ideal for winter. Eau de toilette and cologne work well in the summer. They are not as long-lasting; however, and because we tend to sweat in the summer, they need to be reapplied more frequently.
Look into the to-go size fragrances, which are super-portable and fit in your purse. These travel-size perfume for girls are affordable, making it easier to be more risky. And the ones applied with a roller ball tend to last quite a while.
Wear more perfume if you have dry skin. Scents need oils to last, so if you have drier skin, your perfume won't last as long.
Do not apply behind your ears where sweat and fragrance can mix and cause strange odors.
If you want your fragrance to last six to eight hours, apply the same scent in layers. Some fragrances come in bath soap, gel, and body lotion. Top off with perfume of the same scent for the long run.
Keep your bottles tightly capped, upright, and out of the sun. It's not necessary to refrigerate them, but a cool, dark place will prolong the life of your scent.
That said, don't stockpile your perfumes for a special occasion. Over time scents alter and diminish, and you won't get what you paid for.
