7 Essential Things Men Should Keep In Mind While Looking For A New Perfume



As men, we often tend to overlook the importance of smelling good. People’s olfactory senses are usually extremely sensitive, but as men, we tend to settle for any run-of-the-mill deodorant to help us smell better.    

While deodorants do serve a purpose - mainly as an antiperspirant - they’re not the best option if you really want to take control of your aroma.

So, in case you’re looking to get a perfume for the first time, here are a few things you should keep in mind: 

1. Affordability - If you’re planning on investing in a good perfume for the first time, then don’t splurge unnecessary cash on the first pricey scent you find. Good perfumes don’t necessarily need to be expensive.


2.    Check Out The Sillage - A perfume’s sillage describes the trail of scent it leaves behind when the wearer is moving. The natural tendency is to go for fragrances with high sillage, but that might just make it overwhelming for those around you, as you go about your day. 

3.  Pick Your Notes - Based on your preference, pick the notes of your perfume carefully. The aromatic ingredients of a particular scent are considered its notes. A perfume usually has top, middle, and bottom notes.

4. Select The Concentration - Perfumes are popularly bought in EDC, EDT, EDP, or pure concentrated Parfum types. It refers to the strength of the fragrance’s concoction.

5. Projection Should Be Balanced –  The projection of a perfume decides the distance travelled by the fragrance from your skin. A good perfume would project its scent within an arm’s length, while a poorer variant would barely cross a few centimetres.

6. Don’t Forget The Tones - A perfume’s tone refers to the accents or flavours it gives off. Tones are subtler than a fragrance’s notes, with the former blending together into a single note.

7. Check For Longevity -  Longevity in a perfume denotes the time a fragrance lasts on the user’s skin. It can range from 30 minutes to 12 hours or more depending on the quality.  

Now that you know these important factors, we hope that you get a perfume that truly works for you!
