Perfumes and the Women Who Love Them
If it is Valentine's Day, then many men resort to flowers or candy to show the women in their lives just how much they really care.

Women's Perfume
Most women enjoy picking out a fragrance that is their own. For some women that is a fruity scent and for others they are drawn to a much more flowery scent.

Perfume Tips & Tricks
When testing a perfume in a store, be sure to wait about 10 minutes to allow the fragrance to react to your body chemistry before buying it. Smell it after the first application and then smell it again after waiting. This allow you to sample both the top and middle notes of the scent and give you a good sense of how the fragrance will linger throughout the day.

The Romance of Perfumery
Since ancient times, we have used scent to entice and excite. Eighteenth century's King George III banned perfume as a form of sorcery, after taking note of how women of ill repute used it to seduce men. And modern perfume manufacturers - with scientific evidence backing them up - develop perfumery blends with just such a purpose in mind.

What's In My Perfume?
In the beginning, there was purity. The word "perfume" comes from the Latin phrase per fumum, which means "through smoke." The basic components are alcohol, water & fragrance or oil. The first fragrances were created with natural things-flower essence and other natural sources. These were (and are) called "essential oils". This process was time-consuming and costly, but much better for your health. Fewer people have sensitivity to "essential oils" than to perfumes.
