Have you ever wandered what are you actually paying for when you purchase perfumes? Why is it so expensive and yet why people still opt for better priced perfumes as compared to the ones that are not as well known?
There are many misconceptions in regards to perfumes being better quality when it is more expensive and of a certain brand. Of course, I would not negate the probability that better-known brands could secure the credibility of perfume quality but there are also perfume gems out there that are of a good quality and sold at a more affordable price!
Hence, before you make a decision to purchase a perfume, you may want to consider what you may actually be paying for, and determine if you really do need that high-end luxury brand perfume instead of perfumes other retail store perfumes after all!
Branding can be one of the spending traps some would fall into. Why? Because of the polished advertisements, the gorgeous super models, and their many enticing claims and benefits that comes after buying them! I mean, how wrong can I be to trust in long-established brands?
Please do not misunderstand, I believe that every brand has their pros and cons in buying them. However, most of the time advertisements do not deliver the reality of the product, only allowing us to see the good sides of it and never its possible flaws. Therefore, before you go forward in buying that branded perfume, you may want to look into not just their reviews but if possible, head down to try it on your own to determine the advertisements’ credibility.
Final Formulation Product
Quality perfumes must firstly possess a scent that we like! If the scent is not something we like, whether the perfume provides good strength, power or long lastingness, it will still not be added into our shopping cart.
Next you can now figure out by testing out the perfume fragrance’s power. Can it be perceived? How is the intensity? This is important to judge its quality as some perfumes can be too diluted where its odor is too mild and subtle to even detect. While some perfumes may be too intense and overpowering for your preference. Good quality perfumes are of appropriated intensity and concentration as allowed according to IFRA standards.
Lastly, perfume quality includes the perfume’s synergy. The perfume synergy is influenced by fragrance composition synergy and fragrance interaction synergy.
Fragrance composition synergy checks if the fragrance smells wholesome. This means that it ensures that the perfume doesn’t smell singular, flat or owns an uneven fragrance mixture.
As for fragrance interaction synergy, it is the synergy effect of how the fragrance interact with your own skin. Everyone has their own unique scent, so what smells good on your body may not on another.
Fragrance Ingredient Cost
Cost of Fragrance ingredient can very closely affect the cost price of a perfume but may not influence the perfume quality as much as we expect. This is because even if simple and more affordable fragrance ingredients are used to formulate the perfume, it could also be very well made if done properly.
Like limited edition items, the lesser quantity it has, the more expensive it is, yet the higher demand, making it appear like the product could be worth what you are paying for. Therefore, creating the mistaken belief that rarer the fragrance ingredient automatically makes the ingredient a good one, so the pricier a perfume is, the better it is.
What I would like to end off is that price is not always a determining factor to conclude if the quality of the perfume is good or not. Looking into other factors such as its fragrance profile likability, strength and synergy could help you determine the perfume’s worth better.
