Rihanna, who continues to hate clothing in all its forms, did an impromptu nude photoshoot via Instagram to promote her new perfume. Not surprisingly, it’s called Nude. This is her third fragrance, following in the footsteps of Reb’L Fleur and Rebelle last year.
Ever wondered why, when fragrance shopping, certain smells take you back to a time when you were cuddling with your grandma, or getting ready for a night out in your teens?
According to Newszii this is because fragrance is based around each person’s life experiences, and therefore what you like or dislike comes from whether you have formed a positive or negative associations.
When an advisor at the department store comes to you asking what type of fragrance you are looking for; ever heard yourself say “I don’t want anything too strong”?
What people actually mean when they say this is ‘I don’t want anything I don’t like the smell of’. Because since when has your all-time favourite perfume ever been too strong?!
CERTAIN INGREDIENTS WILL MAKE YOUR PERFUME MORE PRICEY
Loving that Jasmine scented fragrance but think it’s a little too steep? High quality fragrances don’t come cheap.
Imagine how many flowers are needed to be individually picked by hand. Jasmine, for example, requires five million flowers just to make a kilo of oil, hence the cost of the perfume.
CHOOSE A FRAGRANCE THAT FITS YOUR LIFESTYLE
If you find yourself falling asleep in the office, try to avoid rose-scented fragrances as these may make you want to fall asleep; try and find something stimulating like black pepper infused in your fragrance to keep you feeling more awake!
