Perfumes that make you feel young

Perfumes that make you feel young

Perfumes can enhance our personality. Soft, sweet and fresh scents make us feel and appear more attractive, even younger. But the key here is soft because strong perfumes tend to remind us of old people. The best way to use perfume is to be subtle.

According to an article by  J M Boyce and G R Shone in PMC, US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health “The sense of smell is often taken for granted, that is until it deteriorates. As we get older, our olfactory function declines.” This would explain why older people seem to wear strong perfumes. They believe they are just spritzing a bit when in fact they are bathing in it. And far from adding a beautiful scent, they tend to scare people away.

But the practice of dousing ourselves with perfume is not reserved for the elderly. Many young people also do this, thinking that a lot of a good thing is better. Nothing could be further from the truth. One must handle their use of perfume with care. We all know perfumes can enhance our personality. Soft, sweet, fresh scents are better that strong overpowering ones. When you get used to a scent, you may no longer notice it but others will, so keep this in mind if you are accustomed to using the same perfume all the time.
