Perfumes and colognes are quite popular, registering millions of dollars in sales annually. But for those that don't wear fragrances, are they worth trying out? If you've ever thought about trying out a fragrance but weren't sure, then keep reading, as this article is for you.
My answer is yes, as you never know how well they will appeal to you unless you try it. But here is a simple test to determine if you are a good candidate for wearing perfume or cologne: Do you ever pass by someone and notice a fragrance they are wearing? If so, is your reaction to fragrances usually positive or negative? If they are often positive, then you may be able to find a fragrance that you like and enjoy wearing. And you also have the satisfaction of knowing that people who come in contact with you will also be able to enjoy the fragrance you like.
Fragrance bottles aren't cheap. They range anywhere from 30 dollars to over 300 dollars for premium name brands. To start out, I would try one of the less expensive perfumes or colognes. But avoid the cheap knockoffs sold at convenience stores and other places. Instead, do your research, test out some samples, and pick a known brand. When it comes time to buy, use a store like AffinityMart or another online store to make sure you get low prices on cologne and perfume. It's best to avoid auction sites like Ebay, as many dishonest sellers sell cheap knockoffs and pass them off as the real thing.
It's also a good idea to hunt for discount coupons. You can use these to get 10, 20 or even 30% off on your purchases. In the long run, this can amount to significant savings.
