Smelling is healthy. It is fitness for the brain. By smelling, your brain is flexing muscles and learning a new language. It will not explode; instead it will grow stronger, more agile and youthful, at all ages.

Close your eyes to smell what the scent is trying to tell you. Think of a sommelier at work or simply try to enjoy it without overthinking.

Breathe naturally, do not force or change your breathing.
 To refresh your nose: breathe your own clean skin like the back of your hand (no coffee beans please!).

Science suggests that you and your neighbors actually smell the same components, however, you may just interpret things differently.

Smell and use at your own risk. We are committed to following strict standards of the International Fragrance Association as well as various countries’ standards. We use approved ingredients, some little known, some in exceptional proportions, small or large. It is advised to try scents first on a small skin area easily washable with soap and water, or to spray on clothing before putting your clothes on.

Hint: clothing and fabric generally retain and diffuse smells much better than skin. Spraying on your clothes instead of your skin will often give you a bigger and longer bang for your buck.

Alcohol used in perfumery is exactly the same as the alcohol in your vodka or whiskey. It is just denaturized with a bitter agent so that children, and adults, don’t drink it. Alcohol sprays in a thinner, more delicate mist than water or oil. It dissolves natural essences in a clear and clean sprayable liquid, whereas water would create an ugly and thick vinaigrette. Alcohol has been the perfumer's best friend since 1370.
