So exactly WHY do women wear ladies perfumes? In this modern age there can surely be no need to mask body odours – it must surely be a question of boosting sexual attraction? Men are just as guilty of course, it surely is a 2-way thing!Of course, in times gone past there was a very real need to cover up bad body odours – even until the beginning of this century daily bathing was a rare thing, unless you were a miner or followed a dirty trade like that. Step back just another hundred years and imagine what it must have been like… you probably became aware that you were approaching a town because of the smells that you encountered even before you hit the town boundary! Only the relatively wealthy could afford perfumes and, in any event, they were not widely available. In the modern era it can be assumed that the majority of people take a bath or shower every day, so the use of ladies perfumes can only surely be a means of increasing their desirability amongst men? The reverse is also true, men also regularly use colognes in the same way.We all have a natural body odour, some lucky people have an extremely attractive smell, even without using toiletries of any kind. Of course you would need to be quite close to somebody to perhaps notice it and so that is why ladies perfumes and men’s colognes remain very popular. The is particularly true amongst unattached people of both sexes, where all the means of adding to natural attraction are brought to bear.Of course your skin type also has a bearing on how a perfume smells on you. That is particularly true of Afro and Oriental skin types. The same fragrance may well smell quite differently on one, compared to the other. Also preferences vary with people’s age and also the effects of fashion and advertising. Then again other lifestyle choices may have an impact on which ladies perfume is chosen, sporty types are likely to go for stronger smells, while women of leisure may choose something more subtle.So how do you go about choosing a particular fragrance? It doesn’t matter if you are choosing for yourself or for a loved one, there are some basic things to consider. First of all – be kind to your nose! Your sense will become overloaded if you try and examine too many fragrances in one session. I would recommend a maximum of four and don’t use those cardboard ‘sniffing strips’, a perfume needs body heat to bring it alive and start the essential oils evaporating… that’s what makes the smell isn’t it? If you don’t find something you like in the first 4 you try – take a break for an hour or so at least. That will allow your head to clear and you’ll be ready to try a few more again. Of course another factor in your decision about what to buy is the price. Ladies perfumes can be extraordinarily expensive. If you don’t find a perfume outlet selling wholesale perfumes, you may find the cost of smelling sweet is very high!
