The differences in cheap and expensive perfumes?
There are no absolutes to recognizing an expensive perfume from a cheap one
The best answer that I have found is said by Tatiana Estévez, which is actually true because we don’t see the actual production of the fragrances. But the videos on YouTube you say? Just ask yourself, will the X perfume bottle(s) shown on the video have the same procedure for the rest of the production?
When we find something appealing about smell it’s because there are memories associated with that specific smell. Those memories are buried deep down in our mind. Smelling is one of our senses which is connected to our unconscious neurological system. This means that each of our five senses is already programmed to a certain something. Smelling, touching or saying something will trigger an emotions, a state or a thoughts to pop up. Don’t worry you can reprogram it with time of course. This method is call NLP, Neuro-Linguistic Programming.
Right way to smell your fake perfume
So one of the reasons fake perfumes do so well and are much cheaper to produce, is because they replicate the top notes to a high level as possible. What do you do if you want to compare a fake perfume with a real perfume? Don’t spritz it on something, but put it on your skin and smell it after 4 hours and 6 hours. A cheaper perfume may smell bad or have no smell at all, remember that you get what you pay for!
All kind of perfume?
Replicated in laboratories
Just throwing in some useful information so you won’t be diluted by “professionals”. Essential oils can be replicated in a synthetic form because sophisticated laboratories can reproduce some amazing aromas nowadays. So these new “aromachemicals” based on molecules are can have a natural smell, but highly “boosted-up” to give you the intense scents that seem will last long, which is not always the case.
Keep in mind that it isn’t just because of the name it’s all expensive, but it plays a big role as you might know!
