How to choose your perfume ?

A perfume for you
In the introduction, we speak of perfume in the broad sense, but depending on the desired intensity you have the choice between perfume, eau de parfum and eau de toilette. To know the difference, we invite you to read our article on the subject here.
Choosing your perfume: our tips
If you choose your perfume in store, try to isolate yourself as much as possible so that the perfume you really want to discover is not mixed with other surrounding scents. Good to know: the sense of smell is saturated after only 4 or 5 fragrances. Our tip: smell coffee beans! Like ginger with our taste buds, coffee has the power of neutralizing our smell. In our factories and stores in Grasse or Èze, our hostesses will guide you in your choice and can advise you on the fragrances most likely to please you.
Also, it is important to take into account the heart and base notes because the top note that you will feel upon vaporization is the most volatile. Choosing a perfume based on its more lasting notes can therefore be a good tip to make sure you make the right choice and have less chance of getting bored. It is the combination of all the notes that forges the richness of a fragrance, so do not hesitate to inquire about each of them.
Another tip: try the fragrance on the inside of your wrist. Do not rub your wrists against each other, at the risk of breaking the olfactory molecules and denaturing the juice. Finally, wait a few moments for the alcohol to evaporate to be fully aware of the potential of the fragrance being tested.
At Galimard, we make sure to share all the notes of our creations to you. You will find the olfactory pyramid of each fragrance on all our product sheets.
You can also visit us in stores or participate in our workshops to find out more about your olfactory personality, your tastes, your preferences… We will be happy to advise you!
