A Gentleman’s Guide to Picking the Right Fragrance
Fragrance is somewhat your invisible personal style. Ladies do not see it but it has an enigmatic effect on how they remember you. A good fragrance can make you more attractive to women plus it can boost your self-confidence. Despite knowing this, most men do not wear fragrance on a daily basis.
The reason for this is they lack information. Most men do not even know how to choose a fragrance. Before choosing, you have to know basic things about fragrance. The fragrance is a mixture of extracts from natural sources or synthetic raw materials. Basically, it is a concoction of perfumed oils. These perfume oils are then dissolved using a solvent (typically alcohol) to preserve a fragrance for true gentlemen.
There are different concentration levels, which will determine how long it lasts on your skin. There’s Parfum – the highest concentration of perfume. This is the most expensive that can typically last for 24 hours. Eau de Parfum will last for 5-8 hours. Eau to Toilette is cheaper and lasts for a couple of hours. Eau de Cologne is the cheapest.
Now that you know about the fragrances, it is time to pick the right one for you. To successfully pick a fragrance for true gentlemen, you should know the following:
What is your goal?
Before you visit a scent shop, it is important that you determine your goal. This means that you have to think about what you want in a fragrance.

If you are the serious type, deep scents of woods and spices are a prudent choice. Whatever your goals are, there is something for you.
How long do you want it to last?
When you are shopping, you have to determine how long you want it to last on your skin. If you want longer, you have to choose between the three –eau de toilette and eau de parfum and parfum. The higher the concentrations are, the more expensive it is.
How much are you willing to spend?

You have to know that there are certain fragrances made of expensive ingredients. The concentration of the fragrance also plays a huge part in determining the price. Parfum is, of course, the most expensive one.
Which scent family to consider?
