Skin and fragrance

I remember going out with Sandy and telling her how much I loved her fragrance.  She responded, “ I love it as well!  It’s Deep Red by Hugo Boss”.  As soon as she told me I almost bought it, without even trying it first. However, when I tested the fragrance, it smelled disgusting on me.

So what happened?


Fragrances can produce different scents on different skin depending on your natural scent skin type.  For example, oily skin tends to absorb better nice-smelling substances whereas smoother and drier skin will not retain them so easily. Ideally, it would be smart “to test” the fragrance on zones of pulsation (neck or wrist) and wait to discover if the scent suits you (see previous article).

About frenchychic

Born and raised in Paris, I am a Marketing and Sales professional. And now, I am a blogger! I used to be Australian, German and French (Parisian) and now a Londoner lady since February 2010. I love everything about France: the food, the wine, the fragrances, the designers, the music and our attitude, energy & character. My blog is not all about cosmetics nor fashion, is about what is happening in the world in a French perspective: how do we think? What do we think? Why do we thing like this? And what do we French think about YOU strangers from all over the world! It was my passion for arts, culture, international events & news, fashion that drove me into creating La French Attitude and I love every minute of it and I hope you too! Enjoy! Sté xxx
