I guess you aren’t fully aware of the fact how much perfumes can stun us. And I’m not talking about exotic fragrance notes, designer’s phials or stories that are connected with the developing process of such products. There are many other issues, sometimes surprising, even upsetting, which are linked with the scents. If you are curious, what I’m talking about, I invite you to read my post.
FRIDGE FOR PERFUMES
People are imaginative, indeed. As it turns out, perfumes can be stored in a refrigerator. Obviously, not in the regular one, where you keep sausages and beer. The temperature the device generates is too low, as the phials may take over the characteristic smell of a fridge. Besides, how would Dior’s perfume phial look placed next to eggs or pot of soup? There are special little fridges for perfumes; you can find them in a professional beauty parlours. These devices can be also used for storing cosmetics of short expiration date, products of cooling properties and the unsealed care preparations. Small fridges prolong the lifespan of cosmetics, and additionally, they can serve as ‘repository’ for perfumes which are very rare and withdrawn form sale.
PERFUMES FOR HAIR
Spraying your hair with perfumes is a very good idea if you want to prolong their durability. In order to obtain the intensive and long-lasting aroma, spray the fragrance on damp strands and then run a comb through them. In this way the perfumes will coat your hair evenly and ‘beautify’ the hairdo. Remember though that you can cause damage to your hair and the scalp if you keep using perfumes in this way for long. It’s also worth pointing out that alcohol the perfumes contain is responsible for causing dehydration and irritations. Also, it can discolour died hair.
THE ART OF MIXING FRAGRANCES
If you want to smell in an unique way, spray your skin with a few fragrances at once. However, beware the perfume notes that might create unpleasant combinations. On the other hand, mixing various smells might be all to the good. It’s highly possible that we obtain a very interesting and intriguing fragrance. If you would like to give a go to this way of applying perfumes, then before you spray your skin, run a simple test. Take a slip of blotting paper (paper thanks to which you can check how a particular aroma smells like) and mix a few aromas on it. Of course, you can also mix the aromas on your skin, and skip this stage. However, remember that it’s better to don’t leave home until the aroma becomes bearable for other people.
PERFUMES DO TRIGGER ALLERGIC REACTIONS
Sadly. Although it isn’t a rule that all people are allergic to perfumes anytime they are in contact with the products, single cases can happen. The irritations are likely to develop on allergic sufferers’ and sensitive skin owners. In general, there are over than 20 substances in perfumes that might trigger adverse reactions when being in contact with skin. You can learn about the substances on the official IFRA website (International Fragrance Association). Under such circumstances, before you use some new fragrances, run an allergy test first. Spray your skin and wait 24 hours or more so as to find out whether any allergic reaction is about to develop. Obviously, if you spot no changes, you can use the perfumes freely.
