How To Select The Best Perfume For Your Body Chemistry

Choosing the “perfect perfume” is not an easy task. One perfume might work really well on a particular person and fail to radiate the same scent on someone else. This is why the art of wearing perfumes is very personal. There may be instances when you had someone near you wear a scent that smells really nice, but it did not work for you.

A lot of people choose perfumes when they first smell the fragrance on someone else and end up wondering why the same perfume does not feel the same when applied on their skin. There are certain factors that impact the working of scent and its notes.

Have you ever noticed that some years back you loved wearing a certain fragrance every time you headed out but it does not smell right anymore, or your perfume seems to smell stronger and nicer on some days than others? Why do perfumes tend to change over time and have different effects on each person?

The simple answer to this mystery is that all of us have a different and personal makeup of body functions. In simple terms, the body chemistry differs from person to person, which causes the fragrance to work in different ways. Body chemistry has a big impact on the fragrance you wear. Therefore, when you’re picking the right fragrance for yourself, you should understand the makeup of your body and its varying effects on fragrances.

Choosing The Perfect Perfume For Your Body Chemistry

Your body chemistry, heat, oils and even the bacteria present on your skin have a significant impact on how the perfume reacts and acts with it. These factors also have an influence on how long the perfume stays on you, along with specific notes that pour out from the scent when it contacts your skin.

Consider these factors that impact how the perfume works with your body’s different chemistry.

Skin Type

Skin type is the most important factor that needs to be considered when you decide what fragrance will work for you. Generally, people do this by determining if their skin is dry or oily. If, for instance, you have oily skin, the perfume will last longer and you won’t need to apply it in large quantities.

Your diet, lifestyle, and how much stress you take, all have an effect on the excretion of sebum that comes on the surface of the skin via hair follicles. When mixed with perfume, the oily skin produces a completely different odour. If this is the case, you might want to try out ‘TV’ by Match Fragrances, which is inspired by Tobacco Vanille. This perfume has hints of tonka beans, cocoa, and dry fruit accords that help create a long-lasting fragrance, even when applied in little amounts

If you have dry skin, you must know that fragrance will evaporate relatively quickly, while the staying power of a perfume will be reduced. If that’s the case, we recommend that you use Match Fragrances’ ‘Wood’, inspired by Oud Wood, which is a very strong and long-lasting perfume with multi-faceted uses.

pH Levels

All humans have a natural skin pH. If your skin has a high pH, meaning the basicity is high, it won’t be able to absorb the scent very well. For most people, pH levels are usually high and if your skin is dry, you can moisturise before applying perfume

Temperature

Another important factor is staying calm and keeping a note of your mood. Your mood has a great effect on the perfume you wear. The body’s heat plays its role. If the body temperature is hot, the pay-off from your fragrance will be more concentrated.  To your surprise, your perfume will work better and feel more intense when you’re angry or when the external temperature is high. ‘Neroli’ by Match Fragrances, inspired by Neroli Portofino, is the right perfume to pick if you find yourself in a similar situation. The combination top notes of bergamot, lavender, mandarin orange, and lemon along with heart notes of jasmine, neroli, and African orange flower, with base notes of amber, musk mallow, and angelica creates a very balanced and bold fragrance.

Knowing your body chemistry and the notes that work best with it is integral to get the best out of your fragrance. If you still have any confusions regarding this, get in touch with our team and let us help you choose the best perfume.
