How to wear fragrance?

Can I match a fragrance to my personality or memories?
Yes you can. Fragrance triggers memories and emotions- where you are from, your childhood, places you have lived, the environment, genetics, memories, and more. Early childhood memories are a big factor that reflect your personality. Many people have different personalities when in different situations. Perhaps you are a professional and of course, maintain that level of professional behavior but are silly and fun outside of the office! Scents are how we connect, and associate, with people, places, and things. A smell can be very empowering and very different for each person.

Why does my fragrance not last?
If your skin is dry, then fragrance oils will evaporate easily, as opposed to if you have oiler skin.
Depending on the soap, gel, lotion or shampoo you use, your fragrance might be overpowered.
It depends on the fragrance family also. Perfumes with more prominent base notes will last longer than those with lighter top notes. Base notes usually include woodsy, spicy, balsamic, chypre ingredients. If your perfume contains patchouli and amber, it’s likely to have a longer shelf life.

Why is perfume so expensive?
Ingredients are the main item that drives up the cost of perfumes. Some contain rare flower petals or the essences of unusual roots; think tuberose and jasmine. The scarcity of an ingredient—say, one that blooms for only one month a year—can add to its value. Also, natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, fires, ruin crops, that cause increased pricing.

Since our blends are created from exquisite luxury high-quality natural ingredients, we have never had any complaints about an allergic reaction with our blends. However, we do know that many commercial fragrances do cause headaches and allergies.
How much should I wear?
As much as you want! Spray whenever you want to smell special or after taking a shower.
How long will an open bottle last?
Many perfumes can last anywhere between 1-10 years. However, three to five years is often the average shelf life of a fragrance. Avoid direct sunlight, heating, air conditioning, fridge…excessive temperatures.
