And why is there the affection towards perfume?

Some time back in the past

Fragrances have been used long before the distillation plant was invented, one of attributes to create perfume as we know it today. Preliminary various essences incense and water-based tinctures were used to do scent. They were never known for long-lasting aroma and stability which made people using them purchase incenses in huge volume. The Middle Ages came which is called by historians as the dark period since the epoch was known for the idea of the body scent not «disturbed» with any other aromas. Taking into account the willing to ignore washing and bathing regularly which was not compulsory, the scents in Europe was impressive and rather strong. In the 17th century various perfumed means were invented to adopt at the court of the French King, Louis XIV aka the Sun King. Nevertheless, in view of the strong habits or any other reasons the court was never troubled to take a bath, and thus, the scents were made strong to block the real «odor» of dirty body. Fashion historians suppose that this is because the tendency to stronger scents occurred. In the 21st century strong perfume includes fragrances based on chypre, oriental scents and aldehyde perfume.

Chypre-based fragrances

This class of perfume in the world practice of perfumery is called after the cypress aroma. The forefather of this group of scents appears to be the «Chypre» by Coty which became the symbol of perfumes where the fresh citric note with the traces of oak moss and patchouli dominates over others. Many wrongly believe that the name of the scent is called after the word «Chypre» as «Cyprus». That’s wrong and actually, as the fashion historians state, the scents were preliminary associated with trees growing in the Mediterranean, and thus were called «Chypre», the French name of cypress the shore is dotted with. Among the most reputed chypre scents are such great fragrances as «Mitsouko» by Guerlain, «Donna» by Trussardi and «Miss Dior» by Dior.

Oriental fragrances

This group of scents is known for the popular seductive scents that remind of Persia, exotic flowers, tars, spice, balms and others. The most acknowledged fragrances of this group are «Must» by Cartier, «Coco Mademoiselle» by Chanel, «Shalimar» by Guerlain and «Opium» by YSL.

Aldehyde fragrances

Perfumes with the stable, heavy fatty scent refer to this group. This group is unique since along with the natural ingredients the synthetic components are used. First known fragrances with aldehyde scent are the unisex «Jicky» by Guerlain and the really women’s fragrance «Chanel №5» by Chanel. The latter became reputed and popular thanks to the massively promoted ad campaign the image of which were Marilyn Monroe, Ali MacGraw, Candice Bergen, Lauren Hutton, Jean Shrimpton, Catherine Deneuve, Carole Bouquet, Estella Warren and Nicole Kidman at different period of time.

The fame of such fragrances can be explained with featuring of the famous women who advertised the perfume, though it is hard to believe since women are experienced enough in scents and choose the best offered at the market of perfumery.

How to use strong fragrances

In the 21st century women often prefer using quiet and light scents based on flowers and fresh notes of ozone which do not disturb and divert from work process. Moreover, one of advantages of light perfume is that it does not irritate the sense of colleagues to wok closely. However, stylist recommend strong fragrances to wear for evening outs for some reasons. They are stable, the sense of smell of the partners is slightly dull after a pair of glasses of champagne and he risks ignoring the seductive and stirring aroma. Moreover, the elegant and expensive clothing requires appropriate accessories and evening perfume.

When choosing strong perfume the sense of smell should work first of all to avoid headache.Such perfume is expensive and it depends on the costing raw material and recognizable brand.The fragrances launched lately of this group include «J'adore» by Dior and «212 Sexy» by Carolina Herrera.
