The same smell, the same bottle, the same size… we all have one perfume that we consider OUR perfume. The one we always wear to work, to meet our friends and the one we always have a bottle of in our cupboard. So, for how long have you been using it?
There are several reasons why women and men use the same fragrance for years, as it is not easy to select the fragrance with which you feel comfortable, attractive, happy, fresh, elegant with. So, once you have found “your signature essence”, it is difficult to change. Perhaps, you alternate it with others for special occasions, but there is always one of them that will always represent you.
However, as there are many people that stick to a perfume, they wear their entire lives, there are others that change their perfume as often as they change socks. For the most part it comes down to personal preference, but we want to mention some other factors to consider.
It is important for you to know that trying a new perfume does not mean leaving aside a brand that you love but opening the door to other fragrances that can accompany you on specific occasions.
Olfactory taste change, because smell is modified throughout our existence, and this evolution is completely linked to our affective life. On average, there is a change on the olfactory change every three years, and maybe, the perfume that excited you yesterday, today almost repels you.
Nevertheless, it is not always your taste that’s changed. Sometimes perfumer reformulate their scents by swapping out ingredients. Then, if your favorite perfume just doesn’t smell like it used to, maybe it’s time to try something else.
Smell is the only one of our senses that sends messages to a brain region that regulates the primitive pulsations of hunger, thirst, etc. That is why fragrances unconsciously affect all our emotional behavior. Life experiences, memories, the passage of time… they all produce an evolution in you. This evolution can be projected through a perfume as a means of communication. For this reason, your choice in perfume can change. Maybe now you feel more identified with a different perfume than when you were 10 years younger.
There are many elements with which you can strengthen your natural beauty. For example, fashion and makeup. But what about perfume? You should think of it as an accessory. A scent can send a message or create a mood. The simple gesture of putting a few drops of your favorite cologne can elevate your mood when you have a bad day.
The perfume industry is always evolving and producing new creations. That is, with new fragrances arising, you will sadly not be able to discover if you are always faithful to the same perfume. So, why not trying out new perfumes? Changing your perfume just to try something new isn’t a bad idea.
Choice a perfume that you feel comfortable with and makes you feel happy!

Eurofragance presents a beauty ritual that guarantees an authentic layering experience
When you go to your usual grocery store to buy body care products such as body lotions, body scrubs, oils or shower gel, you find so many options that you need at least five minutes to make a decision. This only happens if you are not one of those who always buy the same brand. There are so many brands, so many textures, so many fragrances. So, what´s new? What can make a difference on body care products for you to say “I want this”?
At Eurofragance, our Applications Sensolab Studio has been working hard to bring innovation and surprise to personal care segment. How? A recent example of how is the beauty ritual that we presented at Beautyworld Middle East 2017. It was a collection of prototypes with customized fragrances that featured innovation pushed to its extreme: inspired textures, revamped formulations and unusual ways to take care of our skin.
We launched an innovative beauty ritual that consists of five stages. One of the perfumes of our new collection Scentsoo, Powder in Bloom, was applied on different textures and varied depending on the application. This is the first time that the olfactory layering concept has been used in the personal care segment!
Can you imagine? Enjoy an authentic layering experience by applying on your skin different products with the same fragrance, a fragrance which varies and goes from a fresh scent to an intense and sensual scent.
This ritual starts with a shower gel, continues with a body scrub, then a body butter, an oil, and at the end: a perfume caress. Treat yourself with a beauty ritual that guarantees you an authentic layering experience, that ensures you wellbeing.
The secret to offer innovative solutions to our clients is to think about the final consumer. From our Marketing Sensorial Studio, they work on different markets, different geographical areas, to get to know what consumers’ needs are and what we can do to offer fragrances that are ahead of time, fragrances that create trend.
