Many times, people have second thoughts about gifting a perfume to their love ones, family members, their friends and colleagues as they are afraid, they would not like the scent they have picked for them.
However, before you make this decision, let me give you reasons otherwise on why you should add perfumes to your to-buy gifts!
First: Reveals a Sufficiently Close RelationshipThe first reason to gift a perfume is that it shows very clearly how much you know about the person.
To pick a perfume, you will have to know and consider not yourself but the party you are buying it for and do some homework for it. You will have to know about what they would like, what scent they would avoid and what brand series they like.
Second: Expresses Sincere AffectionsNo matter how easy it seems, to select a scent that they like or something that suits them, you may have to narrow down the brands, go down to the store to try out and comb through some series in the retail store before getting one.
Hence, this effort and money paid will definitely put a smile on the receiver’s face especially if the perfume is something they like and would use!
Scents are great tool in imprinting our memory and making them unforgettable. However, despite how research has proven its credibility, this knowledge is not as widely known as the other memory exercise techniques commonly used.
Remember the smell of your partner, spouse, friends or even family members? What about the times and memory when you can smell them? Or a particular memory in your childhood where the trigger is the smell of cinnamon or vanilla from your kitchen or the bakery store near your house? Do you also recognize the smell of rain, and get reminded of a memory when you smell the arrival of rain?
These are just some examples that help you to see that this perfume you gift your friend can create another wonderful memory that you can look back to when you smell this same familiar scent again in the future.
Fourth: Valuable since Ancient Times
Historically, perfumes have also been greatly revered. It is also known in Christianity that frankincense and myrrh fragrances have been selected as gifts to their King and Lord, Jesus when He is born.
Other than Christianity, Hinduism also used sandalwood aromatic incense for worship and its scents carry a symbolism of wealth, and prestige as well.
Not only frankincense, myrrh and sandalwood but other scents have also been used by the royals and nobles since the past and seen as precious as or if not more than gold. Perfumes can represent status, and embodying graceful perfumes garners respect and admiration from others.
Fifth: Great to Lift Moods
Fragrances are well known to be able to soothe and influence our emotions. This effect allows us cleverly make us of the perfumes we buy as a gift to supporFmakt our fellow love ones or friends through their stressful and anguished moments.
Fragrances that helps improve our moods include scents such as Chamomile, lavender, rose, musk and citrus scent like mandarin and oranges.
Boosting focus could also be accomplished with certain types of fragrances such as lemon, bergamot, eucalyptus and Rosemary.
Last but not least,If after reading this you are still uncertain of what type of perfume to buy for your love ones, why not bring them to a perfume workshop and make a perfume for each other yourselves?
It could not only provide you more quality time with them but gain all the benefits you could have as stated above with proper guidance from the perfumers there.
