The fragrance industry is so well developed, it over takes our senses. It may sound exaggerated. But has one ever succeed in not paying attention to the monthly 'New' fragrance on bill board and signs?
When one encounters the hundreds of scent and fragrances in shop. The degree of choice can be rather confusing if not daunting. Whether should we be directed towards what is fashionable now or something simply one likes without concern of what others are wearing?
Here we offer a no nonsense approach:
1. Try something simple. A single floral scent and see whether that suits oneself and mood.
2. Try something classic. What the granny's generation might be wearing may not seem sophisticate for the 'taste' of today's but when our nose is so confused as it is by the latest scent. It is time to go back to basic and perhaps our nose will be able to 'teach' us something different.
