Relevance of Perfumes in Contemporary Times

The world around us is most directly perceived by our sense of vision or we can say that eyes are the very first door to give us an experience of world outside, then comes sound followed by touch and last but not the least, the sense of smell.
Have you ever experienced that some particular smell can take you back to the memory lanes of some bygone era, bringing out some bitter and sweet memories and nostalgia. Have you ever come across a whiff of something that instantly takes you back to an old memory? Whether it reminds you of your mother’s cooking or a childhood trip to the ocean, a distinctive scent sinks into your brain and stays there. Yes, this is the beauty of fragrance, hence it is very much important to always bloom with some nice smell. Your sweet fragrance can make somebody remember you in a very sweet way.

Are Natural Perfumes Actually a Healthier Choice?

As a teenager, keeping myself well groomed and be ladylike was never my style, I was one hell of a rebel, keeping myself covered with some old rugged clothes, never paying much attention to the hygiene. I never liked to use artificial and loud smelling deodorants as they never appealed my sense of smell neither did they suite my skin. I realized the gravity of my unhygienic habits when I was asked by one of my teachers if I had taken a bath. I was taken aback, to my amazement, I had taken a bath that day and I asked him why he asked such a question. He told me some really harsh but true words, “You do not smell good”.

What’s Your Attar? Floral or Herbal?

Taking its name from an Arabic word meaning scent, Attar is organic perfume oil derived from botanical sources. The oil is purified naturally and that is why attar is the purest form of perfume oil. Since ages, attars are considered to be something which attracted angels and kept devils and negative spirits away from you. Attar has many health benefits too but in this blog we aim to familiarize you with the types of Attars first. 

Types of attar
Floral attarFloral attars are those attars which are obtained from a single species of the flower like Rose, Jasmine, Chameli, Mogra, Raat Rani and Khus.

This oil is a very popular ingredient in all the varieties of shampoos, ointments, face soaps and many more product because of its astonishing medicinal powers.

This oil is obtained from the leaves of the Melaleuca Alternifolia, which is native to Southeast Queensland and the Northeast coast of New South Wales, Australia.

5 Natural Oils and Their Health Benefits

We have a slight obsession with oil. We eat it, drink it, rub it on our bodies, massage it into our hair, and use it as a pretty powerful medicine as well. There are so many different kinds of oils to help our bodies thrive, and they each have their own unique value. Essential oils have their place secured in a natural beauty routine: They're natural, chemical-free alternatives to everything from traditional cosmetics to potentially toxic fragrances. But many can do a lot more than just smell good. In this discussion we will introduce you to some of the essential oils that carry a bundle of benefits along with an enchanting fragrance.
1.      Peppermint:  The bright scent of peppermint does more than to freshen up your breath. It is also used to soothe nausea and other stomach issues, help stop itching, and cool overworked muscles (thanks to the menthol).

Organic perfume: A beginner’s guide to fragrances

Many of us underestimate the power of scents. Choosing the right fragrance is more than just smelling good. The sense of smell is linked to improved memory,sleep enhancement, relaxation and better health in general. You can create a more positive atmosphere if you can choose the perfect scent for yourself! Unfortunately, artificial perfumes and other similar products use harsh chemicals and strong substances which can just cause harm in the long run. Most perfume companies use chemicals that can lead to long-term health problems to the wearer. This blog is a comprehensive guide for beginners who wish to discover their personalized fragrance. We suggest choosing organic perfumes as these are better than their chemical laden counterparts.

Your skin type affects the fragrance you wear!
Before you begin to dive into finding the right fragrance for you, it’s important to note that many scents smell different depending on the skin type they are applied to (dry, oily, prone to sweat, etc.). Because of this, trying on a fragrance before you purchase is absolutely essential, to understand the differentiation within the product itself.

Feasting on Fragrances: Welcome to the World of Gastronomic Perfumes

Gastronomic Perfumes are a bit of paradox, not commonly understood and quite confusing. In this discussion, we will tell you everything you need to know about this exclusive type of perfume.

Starting the Discussion: Food & Scent Connection

Flavor is the combination of taste experienced on your tongue and the aroma you experience through your nose. We all have scents that take us back to some happy place. However, no matter how good the scent of freshly baked bread or barbecue makes you feel, you probably haven't been able to find these food scents in a suitable little bottle — until now! Yes, the introduction of Gastronomic Perfumes enables you to wear your favorite food’s fragrance. These wearable Foodie Fragrances are not easy to find in the market as consumers are still exploring the idea of wearing a food-based fragrance. Also called Gourmet Fragrances, these perfumes present a mix of nostalgic smells from the kitchen, of the foods you adore and even kitchen gardens.

Don't believe in the power of Gastronomic Smells? Read on…

Inducing buying behavior among consumers by using special scents is an open industry. It has been used in the packaged and freshly cooked/served food industry for decades. Bakers and patisseries have been using these techniques rather wisely. Certain smells amplify our perception of a product, attracting otherwise reluctant customers. Studies indicate sense as the most powerful stimulus to provoke a strong emotional response. Here, smells stimulate impulse purchases. This underlines the fact that Food Fragrances can be as evocative and inspiring as floral scents.

Everybody wishes to smell wonderful. In fact, many of us pay as much attention to the way they smell as any other part of their personal grooming regimen. Like all other lifestyle products, the perfume industry also undergoes constant upgradation and each year new fragrance trends emerge in the market. In this blog we intend to provide you a complete overview of the global trends in fragrances this year. Whether you want to smell “romantic” during a date, smell “sober” in office hours or smell “loud” at disco parties, here are the latest fragrance trends that will keep you updated.

Spring/Summer Fragrance Trends
This season is tipped to feature a number of fresh ingredients and modern interpretations of popular notes.  In particular, we see an emerging trend for rhubarb, an evolving appreciation of different tea blend aromas, as well as a feminine take on refreshing mint notes. Each has its own character:
  • Rhubarb: bringing a fresh, green, lightly tart and red berry note, rhubarb blends with fruity and floral aromas to create a subtle sharpness.
  •   Mint: adding a cool, green note and a hint of spice, the addition of mint gives scents a natural lift.
  • Tea:  offering a variety of delicate aromas, a renewed focus on tea delivers a fresh and aromatic character.

Autumn-winter Fragrance Trends
All the developing trends in this category embrace a more autumnal edge which is perfectly suitable for the season. Fragrances are likely to be sophisticated and sensual, drawing inspiration from traditional ingredients like
·         Rose-   It is distinguished by its everlasting femininity and used to add powdery, fruity or woody notes to a scent.
·         Leather- A leather note brings smoothness, warmth and even an animalistic direction.
·         Oud- This note delivers a rich, musty, woody-nutty scent.

Perfume: How Natural Are You Willing To Go?

The markets are flooded with different types of synthetic fragrances, each one promising an everlasting scent that matches your personality. However, not many of us consider the downsides of these chemical based preparations that might range from allergies to reactions and skin irritations. In the era where more & more people are opting for organic lifestyles, switching to nature based perfumes seems like a wise choice.

Natural fragrances are essential oils derived from botanical sources such as flowers, fruits, seeds or skin of the plant, as well as the bark, leaves, roots, resins or wood of certain trees. The process of derivation generally includes steam or water distillation, a technique that has been around for centuries. Sandal Rose Oil is a good example of natural oils.
