Have you ever sat in a bus, a café, or any other public place where within seconds of sitting you start feeling the need to sneeze or puke due to strong scents exhumed by someone who has either heavily used a synthetic perfume or whose perfume though lightly used scents so strongly as a result of its synthetic nature? It leaves you breathless with itching and sometimes watering eyes.
Synthetic perfumes, as opposed to organic perfumes, always do this. They leave no space for fresh air. Justin Timberlake once said:
The right scent can make you feel a little more stylish, but it should never eclipse who you are. It should compliment who you are.
This statement holds water. Perfumes should make a first impression that speaks about who you are. They should compliment you. Synthetic perfumes do the direct opposite. They announce their presence so strongly that you are overshadowed and fade into the background. Synthetic perfumes can also be risky health-wise as a result of their components which ranges from carcinogenic content to toxic petroleum products. You sure do not want to risk any of these.
Scents leave an impression. There, thus, arises a need for perfumes that give scents you would want to keep perceiving as they give a good first impression, pose no threat and perfectly compliment you. Remember, first impressions last for a long time. The answer to this is organic perfumes. Organic perfumes do not only give better scents but are safe. They can easily be made which is why we have compiled a couple of recipes that would aid your creating a scent that suits your personality. As Shakira once said:
“A good fragrance should have a certain personality that makes people identify the scent with you.”
This is well said. Knowing how to prepare your own organic perfumes will help you take note of combinations that best describe who you are.
