·         Hitting the right note: One should be able to pick a particular fragrance for them, something which is already trending in the market doesn’t necessarily make it your fragrance. Identifying the correct note that suits your personality is of utmost importance. Use adjectives to define yourself and pick a fragrance that resonates strongly.

·         Choose the lighter tones:A fragrance that reminds you of a fresh sea breeze or floral notes on dew is observed to cool the body and instantly pacify the mind. A summer scent should quench the heat and sooth the senses. Avoid heavy tones like Vanilla, Cocoa or Caramel as they exude warmth.

·         For dazzling evenings:To pick a perfume for casual outings, parties etc, one should opt for a mild, floral hues with a woody base note. Such fragrances are feminine in nature,yet subtly infuse an enchanting effect. A combination of a fruity Top note, a leafy Heart note and an intense Base note does the trick.

·         All Day long Fragrances:To feel fragrant all day long, one doesn’t require to douse perfume every hour! An EDT (Eau De Toilette) is the ideal option. Eau de Toilette is the happy medium between airy Cologne with a punch of Parfum. Once absorbed in the skin, it gradually diffuses throughout the day, to release lasting scent.

·         Day in & Day out: Every fragrance is synonymous to the mood or time we carry it. When picking up a right fragrance for day wear- go for Aqua, Fresh or Rose based scents. For a night out opt for a more concentrated note like Amber, Cedar wood or Musk with a light hint of floral note such as Jasmine orLily.
