Not only is our sense of smell the strongest sense tied to memory, but its use also has the ability of affecting our emotions. Many times massages involve scented oils in order to help calm the person. Some flowers, plants, and herbs that have soothing scents are used for medical purposes. Throughout the centuries people have been taking advantage of the many benefits of cosmetic perfume. Perfume makes use of the natural smell in order to enhance the sense of body and mind.
The Many Benefits of Cosmetic Perfume
Although most people think of spray on perfume when they think of cosmetic perfume, there are other types of cosmetic perfume also. One form of the perfume is a cream. The cream is rubbed onto the skin causing the scent to soak into the body. When used as a cream, cosmetic perfume is typically milder. This is good if you have sensitivity to smells, but would still like to enjoy them.
Another type of cosmetic perfume is scented oils. These are burned like candles and have a strong scent that fills a room. You can get these in nearly any scent depending on the mood you would like to create. Many of these oils can also be rubbed onto the skin or even poured into a hot bath. However you wish to use the cosmetic perfume, you can enjoy the benefits of the perfume.
The most common cosmetic perfume is the spray on one. Although this is thought to be just a way to smell good, each flavor will give you a different sensation. Some are made to help you relax, while others may be focused on appealing to the senses of the opposite sex. Some are enjoyed because they remind you of fresh flowers, while others make you feel clean and carefree. Depending on the sensation you are looking for, you can find a cosmetic perfume that appeals to you in an emotional way.
Picking a Perfume
There are some important things to keep in mind when you are picking a cosmetic perfume.
1. Choose with care since people associate the smell with your personality.
2. Always try the cosmetic perfume on your skin rather than on paper, because it creates a different sensation and you will want to know how it feels on your skin.
3. Never try more than three scents on yourself at a time. Otherwise the smells will run together and you won’t be able to distinguish one from the other.
4. Having at least two cosmetic perfumes is best: one for day wear and one for evening wear.
