Coco Chanel once said, “No elegance is possible without perfume. It is the unseen, unforgettable, ultimate accessory,” and we have to agree.

Once we enter our sixties, women are often forced into frilly roles that don’t represent how they see themselves but once you find the perfect fragrance, it will sing to the beat of your soul.

A perfume journey begins with the top note, which is usually a light scent that disperses from the bottle first.

The middle note then follows, which is the component you will interact with for the longest, and finally, there is the lingering base note.

If you want to be technical and get the best results from your perfume, it’s crucial to avoid smelling from the nozzle, and instead, spritz it onto your pulse.

Get intimate with it and wear for a few minutes to see how well all the notes live on your skin and avoid trying too many in one sitting because your nose can only handle so much.

If you’re struggling to find the perfect perfume, take a look at some timeless options to help you on your aromatic journey.
