When you're spending a thousand pesos on a bottle of perfume, you want to make sure that you *really* like the scent. The main concern when searching for the right fragrance for you is overwhelming your senses and confusing one fragrance for another. Here, we teach you the ways to shop wisely for "The One."

  1. Don't smell the bottle.

It's better to get a whiff of the fragrance on a paper strip than bringing your nose close to the bottle. When you smell the perfume directly, it may come off too strong than its actual scent.

  1. Mind the occasion.

It's best to stick to clean, subtle scents to avoid overpowering the classroom with your perfume. Save the musky fragrances for debuts, dates, GNO, and weekends.

  1. Wait till you smell it.

Let a few seconds pass before you sniff the perfume to let the alcohol in the fragrance evaporate first so that you can smell the *real* scent.

  1. Spritz on the right places.

When you've narrowed down what you want, spray it on your wrists and back of the ears to allow the notes to mesh with your body's natural chemistry.

  1. Clear your senses.

When choosing between different perfumes, sniff coffee beans to neutralize and reboot your senses. It also helps to drink water, too!
