Answer to the question of how to smell good lies in how serious you are about your hygiene as well as your choice of perfumes (or deodorants). In this article, we will take you through some of the crazy perfumes for men which are manly, full of fragrance, and long-lasting.
Now you must be wondering why perfumes and why not deodorants? While both have the same purpose, there is a slight difference between the two. Maybe next time we will come up with a list deodorant as well. Let’s first try and understand what is the difference between a perfume and a deodorant.
Perfumes Vs Deodorants –
Perfumes are fragrances that are high on essential oils, water, and alcohol. We usually spray deodorants directly on the body while perfumes are preferred to be sprayed on the clothes.
Perfumes contain 15-25% fragrance oil in concentrated alcohol and it’s more expensive than deodorants. You might use deodorant on a daily basis but when it comes to perfumes, you might not use it regularly because its sprayed in clothes, the fragrance wouldn’t fade away.
Deodorants are basically those fragrance products that are applied to the body to alter body odor due to bacterial growth. They play a vital role in removing the smell linked to the bacterial breakdown of perspiration in armpits majorly. They usually contain 10-15% solution of fragrance oil and mild alcohol.
While both serve the same purpose – to give you a pleasant and long-lasting smell. Perfumes are preferred to be sprayed on the clothes and deodorants are to be sprayed directly on the body.
