How To Choose The Right Perfume For Your Body Chemistry

Your Unique Body Chemistry

You will not know unless you experiment with a variety of fragrances.

It is the long-term impression that a fragrance gives you that really counts, not what you think of it at first.

Everyone’s skin is different and that is why some fragrances last longer on some people’s skin than others.

Every individual has their own unique skin chemistry.

In fact, your skin chemistry can even change now and again and the changes are not always apparent.

When these changes occur, your fragrance may go from smelling wonderful on you, to not being a very pleasant smell at all.

There are a variety of reasons that can contribute to and or cause your skin chemistry to change.


The number one reason tends to be stress. If you are feeling a large amount of anxiety it will often effect your heart rate, and cause your hands to become clammy and you might start to sweat.

All of this will factor into a change in your body chemistry and result in your fragrance smelling different.


What you eat is very closely related to how a fragrance may smell on you.Rose

Your diet can radically change the smell of fragrances on your skin.

For example, too much garlic consumption can cause a slight aroma of garlic to permeate from your skin when you sweat.

This aroma may not mix well with your fragrance. Onions as well as other foods that can bring about gas can also alter the aroma of your fragrance.


Age is something else that can factor into your skin’s chemistry.

This is because there are a number of significant hormonal changes for men and women.

The first change is the shift from child to teen. Puberty can be a hard time on a teenager’s body and skin.

Pregnancy is another event that can cause a major hormonal upheaval.

Pregnancy hormones can cause fragrances to smell different to you; a scent you liked before may be something you do not like when expecting.

Perfume And Menopause

RoseLastly, menopause can bring on changes to your hormones and effect your body chemistry.

During this time, your skin can become thinner and drier. Also, testosterone and estrogen levels fluctuate and night sweats often occur.

There are also certain medications and even medical conditions that can play a role in how a fragrance will be altered by your body chemistry.

For example, individuals with diabetes will have a harder time finding a fragrance that works well for them.

This is due to the fluctuation in their blood sugar levels. As their sugar levels change, so does the scent of the fragrance they are wearing.

Some people have skin that attracts essential oils, this means that their skin may absorb certain oil from a fragrance while other oils dissolve quickly.

There is often a lot of testing involved to decide which essential oils work best with your skin chemistry.

To help you in deciding which fragrances will work the best with your skin chemistry; scents should always be applied to your pulse points.

Pulse points are where the blood vessels are closest to the skin's surface and therefore give off more warmth. You should never test more than two or three scents at once.

Off and on throughout the day, smell the fragrances you are trying and even apply more on the same pulse point but on a different day for comparison.Rose

If the fragrance has a scent that you enjoy each time you test it, you may have just found a new perfume for your collection.

It may take some time to work out how your skin chemistry works with fragrances, but it is definitely worth the effort.
