Which perfume should you buy according to your budget? – Male.com

When choosing a perfume (for yourself or as a gift), several criteria should be considered: the olfactory family, the person for whom the perfume is intended, perhaps the design of the bottle not the name of the brand, but also (and above all?) the price.

In the same way we choose the same direction for a person 20 or 60 years old, the contribution is not the same depending on having 30 or 300 euros to spend. Here are some tips to help you find the right perfume at the right price, depending on the budget you want to spend.

As their name suggests, the difference between these products is only due to their composition: therefore, the “natural fragrance” (called extract or essence) is not in water, but raw materials dissolved in alcohol. Eau de parfum can contain 10 to 15% extract while eau de toilette contains between 5 and 10%. The raw materials are less, so the product is better, CQFD.

Don’t worry, brands now offer quality eau de toilette, and it’s really good! And these are not what we expect. Therefore, the ready name Jules for men has been released in two directions that are worthy of interest: A good person and a good person (with thematic preference for marine notes of the latter).

In France, there are famous perfume houses, which have known the right way over the years. This is the case of Guerlain, whose Habit Rouge men’s and women’s Petite Robe Noire needs no introduction.

We can repeat here what we said in the first paragraph: when you are lucky enough to be able to spend more than 150 € for a perfume, there are many more wealth and unknown odors. Prepare to be amazed because these niche perfumes are much less than simple perfumes cut for the masses: we either love them or we hate them!

The “special” collections of the big houses (the Chanel Exclusives, the Private Collection of Dior, the Garden of the Alchemist Gucci, etc.) have the best tools, but you should be interested in the big names. in the perfumery niche. Among them, it is impossible not to mention Frédéric Malle and his Editions de Parfum, so he revisited the beauty of the perfume: Geranium for Mr. it was one of his greatest successes.

Enceladus (named after the moon of Saturn or the mythical child of Gaia). Rhubarb rubs shoulders with vetiver, cedar, sandalwood and tonka bean for an atypical effect, different… but addictive!

Finally, Parfums de Marly is today one of the best perfume houses (it’s worth it !). These works were inspired by the 18th century and the French royal court which represent rarities and show refinement and simplicity. Latest example with stopa fragrance designed for today’s “gentleman” and based around sage, bergamot, cedar, saffron, oud and agarwood.
