Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) January 15, 2007
Have you ever gone shopping for a perfume, bought one you thought smelled great, only to find out later on that it wasn't what you expected? Don't despair. The same thing has happened to a lot of people, but AP9 ShoppingEssentials, a leading membership discount program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, has some ideas to help you avoid this "stinky" situation in the future.
AP9 Shopping Essentials knows how important a sense of smell is for everyday life. The program offers savings and discounts on many retailers all over the country, so you can shop for the right perfume for you, while saving money.
There are many things to consider when choosing a perfume, and AP9 Shopping Essentials gives its members valuable and aromatic tips on how to pick the best perfume:
-- A nose by any other name. Finding the right scent is part luck and part research. It's a good idea to consider perfumes that people recommend, but be sure to try to expand the search to include other scents in the store. The fact that a perfume has the name of a famous person is no guarantee that it's going to be good for you. The nose has its own "tastes," so take time to go to the store and try on as many as possible (not all the same day!).
-- Day and night. A good time to shop for a new perfume is in the evening, when the sense of smell sharpens. Try them one by one, spraying a tiny whiff on your pulse point or on the small cards that stores offer. Don't ever smell it right out of the bottle. Remember to wait for the scent to settle (check back after an hour or so) and to "clear" your nose by smelling coffee beans while you're testing, so the scents don't mix.
-- Outside influences. Avoid trying on a new perfume when under the influence of alcohol or some strong medicines. These can impair the ability to perceive the scents correctly. Also, don't wear any perfume at all before shopping for a new one. The key to choosing the right one is to let the scent of the perfume combine with the natural scent of your body.
-- The one you love. If you found one you definitely like, buy the smallest size available. Try it on again for a couple of days, see how you feel, and weigh the responses of those around you.
Age, gender, personal style, type of skin and the temperature in your home can influence the way you perceive a smell and the way fragrances stick to your body. Take the time to go hunting for the right one for you, with help from these tips and all the savings that you can get with a membership to AP9 ShoppingEssentials.
