Like fingerprints, every person has their own distinct odor. The distinct odor you have comes from the same genes that determine your tissue type. This can be due to body chemistry, the condition of the skin, individual’s diet, health, medication, lifestyle, stress, and the environment which we live in. Fragrance smells differently on a person to person, you need to test on your body if the perfume complements your natural body odor. Department stores are places you could try out the samples.
Don’t let others choose for you, instead, let them reinforce your judgment. Don't just buy because your best friend recommends it. Instead, spray it on and find out the scent after the fragrance blends with your body.
Spray on your wrist and inner elbow (don't rub it). Between smelling each fragrance, reset your palate with something strong, like coffee beans (usually provided). If you're sampling perfumes and you spray yourself with something you don't like, use a makeup wipe to get rid of the scent.
You can use paper strips provided for testing but its advisable not to, because you need the fragrance to blends with your body. After spraying the fragrance on your wrists, walk around the department store and test other fragrance at various intervals up to an hour.
TIPS : There are 3 notes in a fragrance, the Top, Middle and Base Notes. Means, the scent will change with time as you applied to your body. Example, a Channel No 5 (EDP) contains Jasmine, Rose, Aldehydes, Vanilla and etc. But, after about few hours of wearing, only then the Jasmine (middle notes) scent started to come out.
Scent clings best to the moist/humid skin, so apply right after a shower. Spray nozzle 6-12 inches from your skin:
Perfume does deteriorate, and the time period depends on the temperature, light, and length of storage. Direct sunlight and extreme heat can break down the components of most fragrances, so keep all fragrances in a cool, dark, dry area and away from windows. Perfume should be stored at room temperature out of direct sunlight and away from extreme heat sources. On average, the shelf life for a fragrance is 3 to 5 years, but for pure perfumes, it is much lesser.
