Why Do Perfumes Smell Different on People?
Have you ever wondered why a perfume can smell great on your friend, but when you spray it on your skin, it just hits different? If so, then do not fret- this is completely normal. The way a perfume’s scent varies from person to person is largely down to body chemistry.
Factors affecting scent
The way a fragrance smells depends on the pH of your skin, which is why one scent never is the same on any two people. Other factors can also play a role, including body temperature, diet and even your hormone levels. Having a body lotion on your skin and its condition – oily, dry – will also impact how your body reacts to the application of perfume.
Advice from the experts
When it comes to testing a fragrance, the best way thing to do before testing it out is to ensure your skin is clear of any body oil or scented lotion beforehand. Spray the perfume directly onto your body, instead of using a tester strip.
We also recommend testing the fragrance on the outside of your forearm, as the skin is thickest there, so your natural scent will not be as overpowering.
