Your bestie may have a fragrance that you adore and when you try it there is a different scent on you. My friend loves patchouli but when she wears it, she can not stand the scent. Some may feel there is no scent - however, others around you will notice. This is how our bodies work. Each of us has a unique scent which can vary each day due to many factors.
For dryer skin types, pheromones, and perfumes may last less and may need to be reapplied. For dry skin types, it is suggested to hydrate with unscented oil, ointment, lotion or moisturizer before fragrance. Oily skin types tend to be more hydrated giving a better fragrance retention. To improve your skin's pH balance, drink plenty of water and have a healthy diet.
The fragrance of oils, perfumes, and pheromones can vary for each individual. Factors such as overall aroma, duration on the skin, interaction with other fragrances, and changes throughout the day or evening are influenced by humidity, dryness, heat, and cold. In addition to skin chemistry and personal pheromones, factors like diet, environment, body odor, sweat production, and even vitamins, supplements, or medications can affect the scent and how long it lingers on the skin.
In summary, understanding the factors that influence our unique aromas and adapting our skincare routine accordingly can enhance the overall experience and longevity of fragrances.
