Test it before buying
Before getting any new fragrance, you should do a few tests on your skin to see if it’s something you will want to wear for a long time. Try a bit of it on your wrist or any other part of skin and wear it for a few hours. Our skin has unique hormones and pheromones that can change the fragrance and alter it a bit. If after a few hours you still like the smell, then buying it will be a good idea.
