BEST PERFUMES FOR WOMEN IN INDIA
We being social animals, continuously observe and judge the people we meet on the basis of different parameters. It is a common interview question that what is the first thing we notice in a person when we meet him. Some people notice eyes, some notice hands, some notice voice while some notice the body smell and we end up judging that person on these basis. Picking up the last parameter, our body smell represents both our hygiene and personality. That is why we have a thing called perfume.
Perfume is probably one of the oldest items in cosmetic world, since it was used by ancient kings and queens and called them ‘ittra’. The bottles, packings, brands, fragrances of perfumes may have changed since then, but clearly their importance has not.
We always need a complimenting fragrance according the occasion. We need a light and fresh fragrance for a day out with family, we need a sexy fragrance for a date, we need a moderate pleasant fragrance for an interview while we need a strong one for an all-night disco party. Even if we are not really a perfume person, at certain occasions, we all feel like having a light spray on our wrist near the pulse point or a slight dab on the side neck, under the hairline. So perfumes are known to be the inseparable accessory to our couture.
Here are the top picks suggested by us:
