All women strive to maintain their appearance. To maintain a fashionable image, it is necessary to choose the right scent of perfumes. This is because some of them can age women, according to the Best Life website.

Certified image stylist Elizabeth Kosich explained that to stand out in a crowd, one needs to carefully choose perfumes.


Not all floral scents may be trendy in 2024. In particular, it's best to stay away from those that smell like carnations.

Such a carnation scent is definitely not in fashion now.


Rose is another scent that can age you.

Elizabeth Kosich added that glycerin rosewater is the kind of scent that will evoke memories of grandmothers.

Scents that contain roses will definitely take you back in time, and if you want to avoid this, then you should choose a different scent for yourself.

Woody scents

Such scents are already something more unique and exotic. However, it's also worth being careful with them, as they are usually associated with maturity.

These scents will be great for women who already have some life experience. However, if you want a more playful and youthful scent, perhaps you should pay attention to other perfumes.

Musky scents

The expert says that musky scents can make you seem a few years older than you actually are.

You also don't necessarily have to use the same perfumes all year round: choose summer and winter perfumes.

What to look for when buying perfumes

When it comes to buying perfumes, you need to consider several key points. First of all, you should always test perfumes before buying.

If possible, try to get samples of scents in stores before buying a full-size bottle. This will allow you to get an idea of whether you like wearing this scent.

Some scents may only last a few hours, while others can last up to eight hours or more. Many stores offer small strips of paper on which you can spray the scent and smell it.

If you liked the scent after the first acquaintance, apply it to your skin, but only if no perfumed product has been applied to your skin before, such as lotion.
