Scents remind you of a certain point in your life. Moreover, they also play a vital part in your day to day routine. Besides, there is no form of artistic expression more intimately connected to chemistry than perfumery. So, does the world of perfumery involve just the perfumes? No! From aftershaves to eau de colognes, everything involves scents. In this article, we take a look at the best perfumery in the world. Plus, we also check out some tips on how to buy perfumery online in UAE effortlessly.
A typical scented accord is a blend of fragrance materials. These materials have common facets to create a smell. However, none of the individual constituents can be easily distinguished. Since the dawn of civilization, people have adopted this method to create different perfumery materials. Back in those days, the traditional perfumery techniques included a tonne of natural flowers. But they produced mere kilograms of scented products. But, the new process involves a much more sophisticated approach. As a result, we have several types of perfumes available in the market.
Types of perfumes and how to use them
Buying perfumes can be a frustrating process for many. It can be due to the overwhelming number of brands and spices or the types of perfumes themselves. To date, there are about seven different types of perfumes. You should know that each type serves differently and comes with specific etiquette to use. Don’t expect desired results if you fail to use any the way it is supposed to. The key is to use each type in its unique way. So before moving further to helping you choose the best perfume online, let’s talk about the available types.
They are also known as Extrait de Parfum or pure perfume. They contain about 20 to 40 per cent of aromatic compounds. Among all types of perfumes, the parfum lasts the longest. So expect to stay fragrant for up to eight hours. For the same reason, they are the most expensive types of perfume. It contains a small amount of alcohol; hence it is ideal for people with sensitive skin. The best way to apply a parfum is on clean and dry skin. Choose wrists and backside of your ears to spray. Make sure the bottle is at a reasonable distance from your skin. Also, avoid rubbing on the sprayed skin.
Eau de Parfum
This is the next on the list with a fragrance concentration between 15 to 20 per cent. A high-quality Eau de Parfum will last for up to five hours. It is generally affordable. For the same reason, it is an ideal option for individuals who like to try different fragrances. Different brands like Rivoli perfumery and C&F Parfum offer range of spices in Eau de Parfum. However, it contains a higher concentration of alcohol. So, you might need to check with your dermatologist before using one. It is the most common daily use fragrance. Just like parfum, you can apply an Eau de Parfum on both sides of the neck and wrists for lasting results.
Eau de Toilette
These types of perfumes have a concentration of about five to fifteen per cent of aromatic compounds. Speaking of the price, they are cheaper than Eau De Parfum. For the same reason, they are among the most sold types of perfumes around the globe. If applied correctly, these perfumes can last for up to three hours. General Eau e toilette is suitable as daywear. In contrast, the Eau de parfum is ideal nightwear. A common feature of Eau de Toilette is that they smell different in each hour of application. The best way to apply an eau de toilette is on the wrists, both sides of the neck, and behind the knees (if needed).
Eau de Cologne
Also known as EDC, they have a much lower concentration of fragrance. Here you can find about three to five per cent aromatic compounds in total. They are cheaper than other types of perfumes. However, the scents last for about 2 hours only. They generally come in bigger bottles as you will need to use them more frequently. However, the best part of using an eau de cologne is that you can never overdo it as they are extremely volatile. The ideal way to apply is spraying gently on elbows, wrists, and back sides of neck and knees.
Tips on how to buy the best Perfumery products online in the UAE
Scents are very personal. That’s why even if someone recommends it to you when it gets on your skin, it might end up not suiting your taste. And if you want to bypass the one can become an overwhelming process. This is where online stores come to your rescue. But, purchasing online can be tricky.

There’s so much out there that it can become challenging to know where to start and what to look for. This is where we enter. Check out the tips below to understand how to purchase the best online.
Polish your fragrance vocab – Before you even think about ordering your favourite perfumery product, you should take a moment to familiarise yourself with the primary scents, terminologies and categories. There’s no need to overload yourself with technical information on aldehydes and chypre. Instead, brush on the most common terms to describe the scents performance.
Look at the longevity – Longevity of the fragrances refers to how long the scents last. If a perfume has weak spillage, you’ll probably not be able to smell it. You’ll only be able to feel the smell if you put your nose to your wrist. And thus, it’ll last only for some time. It wouldn’t give you the long-lasting freshness that you typically desire from the fragrances.
Try some samples – Whether you’re an expert or don’t even know where to start, the best thing to do while buying the scented products is to try out a few samples. Fortunately, there are plenty of places where you can get cheap perfume samples online. You can get samples of almost any aromatic product you want from the popular fragrance sites.
Try getting a subscription – Even if you’ve tried a few samples, committing to a particular perfume or cologne can be daunting. Because it takes time to settle to a fragrance. Besides, many a time, you might not want to stick to a particular fragrance for a long time. Or maybe you’re just fickle when it comes to scents. In such cases, you can try out a perfume subscription service, where you can choose from a plethora of choices each month.
Shop original perfumes online – Once you want to commit to a particular scent, make sure you get them from a reputed site online. This is helpful when you cannot buy them directly from the manufacturer’s site. The best part is that you can also take advantage of fantastic perfume deals all year round.
Go for niche brands – If you want a scented product that no one else has, check out some indie fragrance sellers. Shops.ae is a great place to start your perfume purchase that houses brands like Frederic Malle, Tom Ford, Acqua di Parma, and many more. The best part of buying your scents from such places is that you can load up on samples from these brands.
Set a budget – Each scented product has unique features depending on the brand. This explains why you’ll find them at different price ranges. You’ll discover premium-quality expensive models, as well as budget-friendly cheap fragrance options out there on the market. Therefore, it’s best to set aside a budget that’s convenient for you, before purchasing them online.
Finding a scented product you love can be challenging. However, if you know what you’re looking for and how to look for it, the entire buying process can be fun and rewarding.
