Best Time to apply perfume?
Directly after you shower.

Rub some Vaseline on your pulse points before spraying to make the fragrance last longer.

You may be overwhelmed by the sheer variety of perfumes for women and men that are available today. To know which one to go for, you must first identify the notes that you are attracted to the most. Floral and fruity notes are highlighted by sweet nuances and offer a fragrance that is refreshing and airy. Fresh and zesty notes have an energetic and vivacious fragrance that is ideal to start your day off. Woody and musky notes are intense and add an aura of enigma and warmth to your personality. Spicy and oriental notes are sensuous, exotic, enticing, and impart an adventurous spirit to your character.

Once you have identified the notes that best complement your personality, you can pick one that best suits your lifestyle. We offer up the best deals on perfumes in the three available concentrations: Eau de Cologne, Eau de Toilette, and Eau de Parfum; each stronger than the next. We also have a selection of scents that make their way to our Weekly Specials, Value Buys, and Gift Set categories, and some that own a place in our Oud Fragrance, Deodorant, Fragrance Mist, and Luxury perfume for women and men. Maneuvering through the shelves of perfumes is easy if you refine your search. Decide the scent, choose the brand, the concentration, and the gender, eg. Hugo Boss Eau De Parfum for men, and you're ready to go.
