Her first perfume: an important step
As a child or a teen, choosing your very first perfume is always special. This scent, the first in a long line of fragrances, will stay with her for the rest of her life so it’s important to make the right choice!
The right perfume should reveal her personality and give her the confidence to flourish. Let her personality and her tastes guide her as she searches for a fragrance to wear day after day. Ready to rise to the challenge?
Which notes for a girls’ perfume?
Although there aren’t any hard and fast rules in perfumery, some scents are particularly popular with young women. Of course, she won’t want anything too babyish, but she won’t be interested in women’s perfumes either. Opt for fresh, light fragrances as she learns to wear perfume for the first time. Read on for our favorite notes for a girls’ perfume:
Showcasing a single floral note or a bouquet of scents, girls’ fragrances with floral accords are hugely popular! Notes of violet, rose, lily of the valley, jasmine and orchid create romantic and innocent scents that are sure to appeal to young women.
Girls will love perfumes with accords that transport them back in time. Notes of cotton candy, candy apple and strawberry candy are ideal for a gourmand fragrance. The sugary scent of vanilla is also wonderfully reassuring. Irresistible!
Juicy fruit is the ultimate embodiment of childhood pleasures! For a tangy scent, choose notes of red fruits including cherry, redcurrant and raspberry or exotic notes of pineapple, papaya and coconut. A real fruit cocktail!
For an invigorating and refreshing girls’ fragrance, citrus notes such as grapefruit, mandarin and lime are the ultimate choice. On their own or combined with other scents, these invigorating notes create lively, vibrant perfumes! Perfect for little ones who live life to the full!
For an even more girly fragrance, mix and match with different scents to create unique olfactory combinations. Peony, patchouli and green apple are an utterly addictive mix, for example!
Learning to wear perfume: what’s best?
It’s vital to teach your stylish daughter how to take care of herself by wearing a fragrance. Once she’s chosen the right perfume, it’s time to teach her how to wear it. Follow the guide!
Wearing perfume on her skin
To create the perfect olfactory signature, spray perfume on her pulse points, including her neck, the nape of her neck, her wrists, her décolleté and even behind her ears. These warm areas are perfect for helping fragrances develop. A few spritzes of perfume are enough but this can be repeated over the course of the day. She shouldn’t rub her wrists together because this can distort the fragrance: don’t say we didn’t warn you!
Wearing perfume in her hair
Wearing perfume in her hair is the ideal way to show off her chosen fragrance! Spray a few spritzes of her favorite perfume on her hair as you style it; as it blows in the breeze, it will subtly release the fragrance.
Wearing perfume on her clothes
Another excellent technique is to spray a little fragrance on your daughter’s clothes. Opt for the collar or the sleeves of her clothes: she’ll leave a delicious scent in her wake, wherever she goes! Clever, right?
