Whether there is a special occasion coming up or you simply want to surprise your significant other, buying a gift is something that you will do at least once. Among the usual options when buying a gift for a partner is perfume.
However, giving perfume to your partner can be quite tricky. For your partner to really appreciate it, the perfume has to appeal to his or her sense of smell. Below are some tips to help you when buying perfume for your partner.
- Go for his or her signature perfume. If your partner has a perfume that he or she is loyal to, it is safest to buy the same perfume for him or her. However, this will only work best if he or she has an almost empty bottle of perfume. Otherwise, your gift might sit for a long time in storage before it gets opened and used. So make sure to make a discreet check of how much more perfume your partner still has. You may also try asking your partner whether he or she is running out of perfume soon.
- Go for his or her personality. If you are planning on buying a new scent for your partner, make sure to go for a scent that suits his or her personality. Is your partner sporty? Do you think a floral smell or a citrus one will fit her better? Choose a perfume whose scent reminds you of your partner. You might also want to try giving a pheromone cologne which supposedly makes the wearer more attractive to the opposite sex with the inclusion of human pheromones in its ingredients.
- Go for a popular one. It might also be a safe option for you to choose among the most popular perfumes in the market. There are many branded perfumes such as those by Dolce & Gabbana, Calvin Klein, Dior, Ralph Lauren, Versace, and many more. However, these branded perfumes can be quite pricey. If you prefer something that is not very expensive but smells as good as a particular brand or scent, consider looking for imitation perfumes that are designed to smell like the real branded ones.
- Go for a seasonal one. Various perfumes appeal to different seasons. Some perfumes are better worn during the summer while there are some that are better during colder weather. Choose a perfume that is appropriate for the season or the weather in your location.
