Ah! We, women, love perfumes. The smell of something woody, scented, fruity tingles our senses. Perfumes occupy the top position in our cabinet. No matter how expensive they are, we know what value they hold.
Those expensive looking bottles with amber, transparent gold liquid are so valuable to our senses that we always make a careful selection before buying these. After all, perfumes are deeply intimate for us and a collectible in our magnificent collection.
So, now the most critical question is, where do we find a new perfume when we can’t (or don’t want to) go to the shops? Lockdown has holed us in our homes, and we are itching to spice our things with variety and spice. We are aching to try something new and fancy, spritzing ourselves with new perfume to fade the blues away.
Wikiparfums, A Life Saver For Perfume Lover
While I was wondering how to lay my hands on a new perfume, my pal informed me about this Wikiparfums, a savior for women like us. It is essentially a Wikipedia of perfume. It acts as a scent database that you can tap into to edit down scents you’re likely to love.
So, you might be wondering how it works.
Well, it works in two ways. If you are already in love with your mate’s signature spritz or have a name for the perfume you were always vying for you have to type in the brand, scroll down, click on the scent, and it will tell you the main notes. It also suggests similar alternatives.
It will tell you that Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle has a flirty blend of patchouli, rose, orange, vanilla and jasmine. Want to know more? Wikiparfum has flagged upon its account Giorgio Armani’s Si Eau de Parfum Intense, which has a mix of identical notes, similar notes, patchouli, and vanilla, rose centifolia and a mandarin and wild card, blackcurrant.
You can get all the information on recognizable brands like Diptyque’s Capitale, Guerlain’s Idylle Eau de Parfum and YSL’s Mon Paris. But if you prefer something vintage or something subtle, then the search engine recommends niche picks, like Costume National’s Pop Collection or Paglieri 1876’s.
If you want to spice it up, like including a new bottle to your collection, you can explore it by raw material. For example, the rich smell of coffee makes me smile in the morning. You can click straight through to results or increase extra notes – sweetened up with toffee maybe or toughened with tobacco.
I, for one, am missing my office. Hence, I instantly went for Pomelo, because I always kept it on my office desk. And whenever the needs arose to freshen up a little, I would spray a mist of it and instantly feel rejuvenating. Pomelo Paradis from Atelier Cologne is an upcoming brand only beginning to be discovered.
Black Saffron by Byredo is a sultrier, provocative evening twist on the scent with soft, creamy warm saffron, cashmeran, powdery violet, and sweet raspberry, which gives the feeling of being comfy.
If you are feeling adventurous, you can straightaway order a new scent. And if you may like a little bit of more reassurance, then you can always go through the list to compile a list of your potential new favorites.
