What to consider when choosing a male perfume

Most men pay little attention to aspects of grooming beyond their facial hair. Gentlemen, on the other hand, know that perfume, like style, has a significant influence on social gatherings.

Someone once told me that in a social setting, people judge others from three points of view. How you look 12 feet away includes your style, posture, and gait.

From 12 inches away, they will analyze your perfume, grooming, and clothing choices that emerge from a close examination of your clothes. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, your perceptual and cognitive intellect which is revealed from the first 12 words you speak.

Today, we are going to focus on the olfactory aspect of grooming and the importance of choosing the right perfume. While this article won’t make you an expert, it will hopefully inspire you to do more research on the subject.

Your main consideration when choosing a perfume should be the impression you want to make; in what environment you will wear it; And how long do you want it to last? A good perfume will however do more for us.

It can boost confidence, improve mood, enhance attraction, and as an aromatherapy, calm the mind and help us sleep. Someone accurately described the perfume as music for the nose.

We normally consider perfumes for social reasons. An evening with friends, to impress someone at the office, or one that will serve us throughout the day. When choosing a perfume, think about your activities of daily living.

This means considering where you will spend the most time and social interaction. The thing to remember about perfume is that your nose is just the guide when you first encounter perfume. After using it several times, your nose will be blind. This is dangerous because you might be tempted to overdo it and offend those around you.

A good perfume should accentuate and complement your natural body scent and mask any unwanted odors. Odors are created when bacteria on your skin come into contact with sweat.

Don’t worry if you sweat a lot because it’s not the presence of sweat that causes the pungent smell, but the type of bacteria and how they react to your perspiration. Men are more likely to have body odor than women because they have more hair.

The choice of perfumes begins with the knowledge of the four main categories. Floral, oriental, fresh and woody. Michael Edwards developed the Scent Wheel which further divides 4 categories. His work breaks down and he describes the different ingredients used to create perfumes and their notes.

Second, you should know that the strength of the fragrance varies from 1%, which lasts about 2 hours, to about 30%, which lasts about 8-12 hours. The percentage refers to the amount of perfume and essential oils used to make the composition.

Eau Fraiche has the least between 1 and 3 percent, followed by Eau de Cologne at 2-4 percent, then Eau de Toilette (EDT) between 5 and 15 percent and the top of the ranking is the Eau de Parfum (EDP) with between 10-20 percent strength.

If money is no obstacle, you should consider Extrait de Parfum (Parfum) with an essential oil concentration of between 20-30%. The best perfumes are based on the quality of essential oils that have aged and matured for years before being added to the perfume. Expect to pay more for higher oil content.

If you’re looking for a signature scent, go for something handcrafted rather than settling for the common, cheaper commercial scents. Their visibility relies more on brand endorsement and ad spend than on quality.

Research your scents and the perfumer behind them. For example, Frank Voelkl created Bois for Commodity and the famous cult Santal 33 for Le Labo’s.

Other great names in perfume design are Rodrigo Flores-Roux who has worked on major brands for Tom Ford, Bruno Jonanovic who created Bad Boy Le Parfum for Carolina Herrera, Sophie Labbe who created Boss Bottled Marine for Hugo Boss and Caroline Sabas who created Oud. Intense Orange of Fragrance Du Bois.

Firmenich and International Flavors & Fragrances (IFF) are two great institutions that have been creating ingredients for perfumers for over 100 years.

Knowing how to apply your perfume is as important as choosing your perfume. As described earlier, the strength determines how much you need and will guide you on how long it lasts. As a general rule, apply it to your skin, not your clothes.

Aim for the hottest parts of your body, such as the neck (sides and behind the ear), elbows and chest. A burst a few inches from your skin should be enough for each spot if you have a good quality, strong scent. Always apply perfume before getting dressed, do not rub your skin and avoid your wrists.

Evelyne Mbogo, sales manager and buyer at Lintons Beauty in Kenya, says most men don’t know the difference between fragrances or the work involved in producing them. The few who do the research are willing to pay for higher quality, handcrafted fragrances like Black Orchid and Tom Ford’s Ombre Leather.

Finally, remember that your perfume has three levels called notes. The top notes (head or opening), which create the first impression of the perfume. The heart (heart) note is the heart of the perfume and reveals its true character. Base (base) notes are the base or foundation and can last up to two days.

Does this perfume really smell of the person you miss? https://i-lightman.com/does-this-perfume-really-smell-of-the-person-you-miss/ Fri, 16 Sep 2022 09:48:00 +0000 https://i-lightman.com/does-this-perfume-really-smell-of-the-person-you-miss/ We asked everyone at Dazed’s office if the viral Tiktok perfume, Phlur’s Missing Person, really smells like someone they love – that’s what they said Can a perfume recreate the smell of the person you miss?

We asked everyone at Dazed’s office if the viral Tiktok perfume, Phlur’s Missing Person, really smells like someone they love – that’s what they said

Can a perfume recreate the smell of the person you miss? TikTok thinks so. Earlier this year, app users went wild over a scent they said evokes the scent of someone you love or miss. So much so that the hashtag now has over 4 million views. At the time, the perfume in question – Phlur’s Missing Person – was only available in the United States. But this week it finally arrived in the UK and we here at Dazed HQ got the chance to test it out for ourselves.

Missing Person is described by the brand’s artistic director, Chriselle Lim, as an “addictive scent – ​​like the lingering scent of your lover’s skin left on their t-shirt or pillowcase.” It’s evocative but oddly familiar. It will warm your skin and heal your soul. The perfume combines a top note of “skin musk” with bergamot, jasmine, sandalwood and neroli flower for a warm scent that is sometimes floral, sometimes musky.

The internet hype for the fragrance started when Rachel Rigler saw him again on TikTok in March, then had her boy friend also give feedback. Calling Missing Person “the most interesting perfume I’ve ever smelled in my life,” Rigler says she can’t even begin to describe the feelings it gives her. “It smells like being in love and it’s very familiar.” She then filmed her boyfriend who, upon smelling the perfume for the first time, said, “that’s weird…it smells like you…fresh out of the shower…in a bathrobe.”

Things really started when makeup artist Mikayla Nogueira bought a bottle in response to Rigler’s video and posted his own reaction to his 13.4 million followers. “It’s crazy,” she said. “I don’t know how to explain this, it smells like someone you love and miss,” she continues as she begins to cry. Five hours later, the perfume was completely sold out and had accumulated a waiting list of over 200,000 customers desperate to try it for themselves.

Since then, TikTok has been inundated with reviews for the fragrance. Hayley Pham said memories of family gatherings came back to her when she smelled it, including being hugged by her aunts and cigarette smoke. TikTok user @tik.tok.tina was brought to tears. “Why does this make me emotional?” she asks. “You know, when you cuddle someone you really love and you’re nestled against their chest and looking at them, it smells like that.”

So what’s the bureau’s verdict? My initial reaction to Missing Person was that it smelled like someone wearing strong perfume who had just smoked several cigarettes. it reminds me a lot Celine’s “Nightclubbing” and also my godmother. The perfume smelled different on almost everyone who tested it and everyone had a different reaction as well, with responses divided.

Our feature writer, Halima, said the perfume smells just like her mother. Florence, the project manager at Nowness, had a similar family response, saying it reminded her of her sister’s perfume. Others, however, were less convinced. Our editor, Dominique, thought it smelled like fresh laundry, but said it didn’t remind her of anyone, while AnOther’s social editor, George, also named linen as the scent. Sophie, director of brand partnerships, said it didn’t remind her of anyone, but it evoked the feeling of being at home – comforting, like getting a hug.


Opinion was mixed as to whether the scent was feminine or masculine. Several people described the scent as floral, with Nowness video editor Harry adding baby wipes. Baby powder was another suggestion offered. Many, however, felt it was quite a masculine scent. Culture coordinator Eddie described the scent as smelling of books but in a “sexy, masculine” way. Jess, project manager, said gasoline.

Producer Sam said it reminded him of someone he missed, as did digital director Harry, who added that the scent was musky and floral, comparing it to his grandfather’s old house. Communications Director Sophie didn’t feel anything at all (maybe she’s bored herself?)

Overall, it was a split verdict. Half of the office described the scent as smelling of cigarettes, while the other half thought it was fresh and washed out. Many felt that it evoked a particular person or memory, but just as many were a bit confused. Some thought it was very floral and feminine, while others thought it was masculine and musky.

So why is Missing Person causing so much emotion in people on and off TikTok? My best guess is that it combined the smell of cigarettes, perfume, and fresh laundry which, when mixed together, smells like the clothes someone is wearing. For people who have a loved one who smokes, a fabulous aunt who’s stocked up on Chanel No 5 and Marlborough Lights, for example, the scent will be reminiscent of someone in particular. Those who don’t might be more drawn to the smell of laundry and think about the clothes they spend the most time cuddled up in – a boyfriend or girlfriend. The only way to really know is to try it yourself.

Similar to brushing your teeth, wearing perfume has become a regular ritual. Although the use of perfume may seem obvious, its use and maintenance requires some skill. Luckily, these easy tactics will prolong the freshness and aroma of your favorite scents.

Material required: Perfume, Moisturizer, Hairbrush, Makeup remover

Hydrate: Compared to dry skin, which allows fragrance to glide on easily, oily skin has the ability to retain fragrance longer. Before spraying your favorite perfume on your skin, use a fragrance-free moisturizer.

Target pulse points: Spraying perfume on heated or pulsating places on the body ensures that the aroma stays there longer. It also promotes the diffusion of fragrance throughout the body and allows it to linger throughout the day. The main pulse sites are on your neck, inside your elbows, behind your knees, on your ankles and calves, and on your wrists.

Spray a stroke on your brush: When you spray perfumes directly on your hair, it dries out and becomes more fragile. Instead, spray some on your hairbrush before brushing your hair to ensure minimal mess and a pleasant scent all day long.

Do not rub; dab instead: Rub perfume on your wrist together something we’ve all done at one time or another. We didn’t realize that we rubbed in the top notes of the aroma which will actually be forced to fade faster by the scent. So next time gently rub your wrists together.

Store perfumes in cool, dark places: Heat and light cause perfume to decrease the quality of perfume. Instead, store them in cool, dry places to preserve their longevity, such as your vanity drawers that aren’t near windows or the refrigerator.

The lighter the fragrance, the less it persists: Woody and musk scents will last longer on your skin than lighter, aromatic scents like citrus or jasmine because they have a larger molecular structure. When choosing a new perfume, keep this in mind because you might finish the lighter, more aromatic perfume bottles faster.

Luxury perfume companies have made several significant mergers and acquisitions to expand their business in the international and domestic market.

POTLAND, 5933 NE WIN SIVERS DRIVE, #205, OR 97220, USA, Sept. 14, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to a new report released by Allied Market Research titled “Luxury Perfume Market by Price, End User, and Distribution Channel: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2019-2026”, the luxury fragrance market size was valued at $11.7 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach $16.8 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR by 5.3% from 2019 to 2026. In 2017, Asia-Pacific accounted for nearly 30.3% of the luxury fragrance market.

Over the past two years, the traditional consumer fragrance business has seen a decline in sales as target customers seek out more premium fragrance brands. This triggered a demand for various luxury perfumery products all over the world.

Premiumization has facilitated a bridge between the desirability of the luxury experience and the need of the mass market. Accordingly, premiumization plays a key role in the overall growth of the luxury fragrance market. Customers today are looking for superior quality and content when it comes to using any type of consumer product, including fragrances, regardless of its high-end price. This translates into an increase in the demand for premium branded perfumes.

Most of the developed countries have seen an increasing demand for luxury perfumery products. For example, according to the sources, sales of high-end perfumes in the UK increased by almost 8.0% in 2016. However, the country’s overall perfume market saw a decline of 2.5%. This is due to the rising per capita income of target customers coupled with the extensive product offering of luxury perfume manufacturers. Thus, the surge in demand for various perfumery products is triggering the growth of the market.

According to the International Fragrance Association, artisan and niche fragrances are the fastest growing segment of the fragrance segment. The significant growth of the segment is attributable to the majority of the target customers seeking natural or organic products for its consumption. Handcrafted fragrances are processed with natural and exotic ingredients instead of synthetic elements. They are generally produced in smaller quantities and are not widely distributed, but sold in limited retail formats. Considering this customer buying behavior, most of the key players in the global luxury perfume market have strategized to acquire several key artisanal perfume manufacturers. For example, in 2015, the Japanese company Shiseido bought the independent perfumer Serge Lutens. Similarly, in 2016, L’Oréal acquired Atelier Cologne. Major mergers and acquisitions initiated by manufacturers are expected to drive the market growth during the luxury fragrance market forecast.

Celebrity perfume is another segment contributing to the growth of the global luxury perfume market analysis. Celebrity fragrances are perfumes and fragrances that are branded and promoted by celebrities. Celebrity influence in the fragrance segment showed positive growth across the parent market in terms of sales value. According to the sources, sales of celebrity perfumes have increased significantly in value over the past five years, especially in the US and UK. Hence, celebrity branding and endorsement provides an avenue for the growth of the global luxury fragrance market in terms of sales value.

Key Findings of the Luxury Perfumes Market:

In 2018, by price, the $100-$200 luxury fragrance segment accounted for approximately higher market share, with a CAGR of 5.6% from 2019 to 2026.
In 2018, by end user, the female segment accounted for a higher market share for luxury fragrances.
In 2018, by region, Asia-Pacific accounted for the highest value luxury fragrance market share.
The key revenue opportunities, growth factors and market trends for luxury fragrances in emerging economies are highlighted in the report.

Major players in the luxury fragrance industry are L&L Luxury Company Ltd., Pheonix Fragrance Ltd., Guccio Gucci SpA, Louis Vitton, Clive Christian, Floris London, Giorgio Armani SpA, Creed Boutique, LLC, Estée Lauder Companies Inc., Hermès International SA, and others such.

Looking back on the illustrious 96 years of Queen Elizabeth’s life, it’s almost impossible to think of a time when she wasn’t groomed to perfection.

We never saw a misplaced hair or a smudged lip, and according to insiders, that was all her job. It has been reported that she has never relied on a professional “glam crew” except for filming her annual Christmas Day speech.

But while Her Majesty was active with her jaw-dropping day-to-day and night-time looks, she was never in the business of advertising her favorite lipstick, so we had to piece together her favorite products across a patchwork of intrepid treats from the royal reporter and the brands that have received a Royal Warrant.

Royal warrants are granted to the select few businesses that supplied the late monarch, her family and their homes for years – some even before she took the throne in 1952!

Below, we’ve rounded up a selection of the Queen’s favorite powders, creams and perfumes – and some of the other products you might find in one of the royal residences…

  • TikTokers use Victoria’s Secret perfume as mosquito repellent.
  • A 2015 study found the scent to be effective, but the volume used is unrealistic for everyday use.
  • For maximum cost effectiveness and protection, it is always better to use DEET.

Some TikTokers have started using a $60 Victoria’s Secret perfume to ward off mosquitoes after seeing viral videos claiming it works as insect repellent.

The fragrance, Victoria’s Secret Bombshell, is a “fruity, floral” formula with notes of purple passion fruit, Shangri-La peony and vanilla orchid, according to the brand.

But it’s now become the spray of choice for repelling mosquitoes at kickball games, or when visiting islands off the coast of Mexico, and for everyday life in Mississippi. Some say they prefer the scent to standard DEET insect repellent and claim it works better than standard mosquito repellent.

TikTok is full of unsubstantiated or dangerous hacks, but surprisingly, a 2015 study backs up the Bombshell-as-bug-spray idea. The study tested eight common insect repellents plus Bombshell, and the scent was shown to repel mosquitoes for up to 120 minutes, beating most botanical insect repellents included in the study.

Mosquitoes are attracted to humans based on a combination of “olfactory cues” like body heat, carbon dioxide and skin odor, Dr. Floyd Shockley, head of collections, told Insider. entomology at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. The scent more likely acts as a form of “chemical camouflage,” Shockley said, than as a repellent.

But while Bombshell can technically do the job, using perfume as mosquito repellent isn’t exactly cost effective. A can of OFF! – which was found to be more effective than Bombshell in the same 2015 study – will cost you as little as $8, while a bottle of Bombshell eau de parfum will set you back $60; a mist $25; and a $20 rollerblade.

Additionally, it’s important to note that participants in the 2015 study applied about five times the standard volume of perfume – about 0.5ml, whereas a typical spritz of perfume is closer to 0.1ml. . So while it’s effective in high doses, those doses aren’t exactly realistic for everyday use, either for easy portability or cost.

“If you use enough, mosquitoes won’t ‘see’ you as a potential host because you won’t smell good,” Shockley said of the Bombshell scent. But, “at the doses used in these studies, you would undoubtedly be repellent to others as well.”

Lipstick Index, then Foundation Index and now Perfume Index. What he suggests about the economy https://i-lightman.com/lipstick-index-then-foundation-index-and-now-perfume-index-what-he-suggests-about-the-economy/ Mon, 12 Sep 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://i-lightman.com/lipstick-index-then-foundation-index-and-now-perfume-index-what-he-suggests-about-the-economy/ The term was coined during the 2001 recession by Leonard Lauder, then president of Estee Lauder Cos.

The term was coined during the 2001 recession by Leonard Lauder, then president of Estee Lauder Cos. He noted that lipstick sales increased in the fall of that year, indicating that women facing an uncertain economic environment are turning to beauty products as an affordable treat.

Then the financial crisis of 2008-2009 gave birth to the Foundation Index, with women prioritizing flawless skin over a perfect pout.

This time around get ready for the Scent Hint, or maybe the Bouncy Blowout effect. Fragrance or hair care sales may further reflect consumers’ shift from extravagant purchases to cheaper indulgences in the post-pandemic era.

To be sure, makeup sales are booming. As the masks come off, lipstick has led the way – in the US and Europe, as well as in mainstream and high-end markets.

But cosmetic demand is not limited to lipstick. The natural “clean girl” aesthetic, characterized by glowing skin, has sparked interest in the new makeup, as has a more dramatic look that’s increasingly popular – think colorful, bold eyeliner and gemstones from the TV show “Euphoria”.

Many consumers neglected their makeup bags while staying home during Covid, just as they did with their dressier wardrobes. Skincare, which had overtaken makeup for several years, has become even more important. But the relay of beauty now returns to colored cosmetics.

Economic considerations play a role. Despite the loss of consumer confidence, sales increased. And beauty is less affected by spiraling input costs. Packaging aside, energy is a relatively small component in makeup production, and products take up little space in expensive shipping containers. Add to that the big-margin buffer, and the average price of high-end beauty products in the U.S. rose just 2% year-over-year in the January-August 27 period, according to the NPD Group. Compare that with the overall inflation rate of 10.9% in food and 5.1% in clothing in July in the United States.

This makes beauty a more accessible luxury. And while many shoppers turn to lipstick, others turn to perfume for a pick-me-up.

“We call it the scent index or the scent effect,” Sue Nabi, CEO of Coty Inc., told investors recently. The company sees no signs of a downturn. Fragrance sales are also increasing at Estée Lauder, L’Oréal SA and US retailer Ulta Beauty Inc.

Demand is aided by the fact that consumers have purchased perfumes online during the pandemic. Beauty giants had already begun to shift away from celebrity perfumes towards more artisanal and personalized fragrances, which appealed to millennial and Gen Z shoppers. Perfume became a way for people to cheering themselves up when stuck at home – this was another part of the self-care regimen that also benefited skincare.

But unlike demand for face creams and masks, the reopening has been good for fragrance sales. Fewer people have time for a 10-step skincare routine, but there’s more reason to restock on fragrance as we head back to work and the holidays. Taste changes are also observed. For example, while men’s fragrance sales in Europe rose 21% year-on-year between January and July, aftershave remained flat, according to IRI.

Designer fragrance has traditionally been an entry point into high-end products. Sneakers and streetwear have taken over to some extent, but with inflation crowding out more marginal luxury shoppers, the role of fragrance could be revived. Can’t afford a Prada bag? How about a bottle of her new perfume Paradoxe?

Expect these trends to continue as retail recovers further, the winter holiday boosts gift sales and Chinese consumers buy more fragrances.

Another difference from past periods of economic uncertainty is the explosion of high-end hair care. This category includes brands such as L’Oreal’s Kerastase, US-listed Olaplex Holdings Inc. and Kardashian favorite Ouai, acquired late last year by Procter & Gamble Co. Socializing again means more need styling products. At the same time, consumers haven’t given up on treatments, such as hair masks, that they discovered during lockdowns.

Hair care has received a huge boost from social media. There are countless TikTok videos on how to get curtain shots and beach waves, for example. The undisputed star of “HairTok” is the Dyson Airwrap. But at over $500, the tool is far from an affordable treat. A $30 bottle of Olaplex oil is a cheaper way to get shiny hair. It is therefore no wonder that Olaplex sales have increased. nearly 40% in the second quarter. Another area to watch will be at-home hair coloring, as more and more women are replacing salon visits or extending the time between visits.

Social media will play a big role in determining which categories benefit from the lipstick effect. This presents a challenge for beauty product manufacturers and retailers because if a product goes viral, they may experience a sudden surge in demand. Take Clinique’s Almost Black Honey Lipstick. The universally flattering hue launched in 1971 but became a TikTok sensation last year, causing demand to outstrip supply.

But for high-end beauty, that can’t be a bad thing. As in the luxury industry, sometimes scarcity is exactly what it takes to send consumers into a frenzy, and the Lipstick Index soar.

Pure essential oils have many benefits for them. They are used for better skin and hair and also for aromatherapies. Apart from this, essential oils can also be applied directly to the skin and work wonders as a natural fragrance. They are not only more durable but also chemical free, unlike perfumes.

Lavender oil: Stress can be reduced with the help of lavender essential oil. It is also very beneficial for the skin and has anti-inflammatory properties. Apply a few drops of lavender oil to the neck and armpits after bathing. This will help keep sweat odor away from the body throughout the day. You can also mix it with your body lotion and apply it on your body.

Sandalwood oil: You can also use sandalwood oil as a natural fragrance. However, applying it directly to the body can cause allergic reactions in many people. So, use this oil on clothes. The special scent of sandalwood helps keep it fresh throughout the day.

Everyone loves being complimented on their perfume. However, the nagging problem still stalls: Every day you get ready, spray on your favorite perfume, and head out to start your day…only to find it’s already worn off in less than an hour!
So the question remains: How do you keep it smelling good everything all day ? If you are a beginner, don’t worry. We’ve got *all* the tips on how to use your perfume to smell fresh 24/7.

Layering is your new BFF.
Let’s be clear: layering is so important! One way to achieve this is to combine different scents on top of each other for a unique, personalized scent. To make sure the scent notes are complementary, use a piece of test paper before spraying on your body. Spray the strongest scent first and don’t go overboard with the amount of scents you pair.
For optimal effect, layer several products (sprays, oils and/or solid versions) of the same fragrance. You can aim for body washes, hair products, lotions, and deodorants that smell the same to enhance the aroma even more.

Know where to apply your perfume. (Hint: pulse points!)
Heat triggers the release of fragrance throughout the day, which is why the best places to apply your fragrance are on your pulse points. Pulse hotspots include areas such as the back of your neck, wrists, the inside of your elbows, the tops of your ears, and the back crevices of your knees. A general rule of thumb is to spray about 5-7 inches from the surface of the skin.

If you want an extra boost, spray some perfume on your hairbrush as well (but don’t mix this with spraying directly on your hair, which can be harmful).

Apply at the right time.
For optimal performance, add perfume to your post-shower routine. This is when your pores are open and you can use the steam from the shower to your advantage. Hydrated skin is always a pro when it comes to using perfume.

If you need to reapply throughout the day, pack a small perfume roller or invest in a travel version to throw in your everyday bag. You can also spray your perfume on a few cotton balls, swabs, or cotton swabs, and store them in a Ziploc bag for a quick touch-up.

Use the Vaseline hack.
If you didn’t already know, perfumes *love* oils and moisture! Lock in the scent by using a dab of petroleum jelly before spraying your perfume. An unscented lotion or oil will also help retain the scent longer.

High quality perfume vs body spray
High-quality perfume or body spray, but which is better? Although high quality perfumes are more expensive, they are worth it in the end. They tend to have a stronger scent and (therefore stay on longer), whereas body sprays are less concentrated in scented oils.

Don’t listen to perfume myths.
You should rub your perfume with your wrists. That’s a *huge* no-no. Rubbing it breaks up the scent, making your scent fade faster!
Fragrances never expire. Bad! Believe it or not, perfumes have a limited lifespan and don’t last forever. When the expected time is up (most perfumes have a shelf life of up to five years once opened), the scent won’t stay that long. Make sure to always replace your perfume when the time comes!
