Here’s how you pick the perfect perfume

You might have a signature style, but that doesn’t mean you want to wear the same pair of trousers for every occasion. The same is true for fragrances! The time has come to ditch your ‘signature scent’ for seasonal ones. But how do you know which perfumes are your style? Buying perfume isn’t exactly wallet-friendly, so making a mistake can be a disaster. But don’t worry. We’ve done the hard yards for you and found the perfect solution. 

The ideal fragrance

By now, everyone knows that it’s tricky to find the fragrance. Nowadays, there are so many choices that we hardly know where to start, plus testing scents in perfume stores is a minefield. There are just too many fragrances in one place. Parfumado, the Netflix of perfume, has come up with a solution which makes perfume discovery fun, simple and light on the wallet! For the price of your lunch or a London cocktail, you can try a new fragrance every month.

Parfumado offers a comprehensive perfume subscription!

Like music, scents offer a magical gateway to our memories, that’s why brother and sister Martijn and Floor van Rooy built a discovery platform for perfumes. After all, how can you choose fragrances online that suit changing occasions and seasons? 

How does it work? 

Parfumado offers a subscription, and its members (or scent nomads, as they call them) discover a new perfume every month. For £12.95 per month, members can choose a fragrance from over 550 iconic and niche brands, and it’s delivered to their doorstep. Big names like Hermes, Versace, Montale and Paco Rabanne are included. However, the true beauty of Parfumado comes in its selection of niche brands that offer exclusive and high-quality perfumes, some of which you will have never heard of. It’s a surefire way to become the go-to expert among your friends. Plus, you can pause or stop their subscription whenever you want, meaning you’re always in control. If you have too many perfumes, you can pause your subscription for a few months before jumping back in. Or if you’re coupled up, it’s fun to take turns and alternate months. 

Handy to take with you

Parfumado has many other advantages too. For example, you get an 8ml bottle every month, that might sound like a little, but it’ll last you a month! That’s because the perfume vials are big enough for you to spray 4x a day for up to 30 days (tried and tested by their team). Their bottles are practically sized, so you never have to leave your perfume at home! To protect the perfume, and your purse, you also get a travel case when you receive your first order.
