More women are choosing fragrance lotions over perfumes when thinking of applying scent to themselves. There are many advantages of choosing a fragrant lotion over a perfume. One of them is price. Lotions are available in just about every scent, in drugstores, discount stores and department stores for a fraction of the price of perfume. And there is such a variety of scents available, that a woman may have many different fragrant lotions.
Just about every perfume on the market also has a corresponding lotion. In some cases, it makes more sense to purchase the lotion than the perfume. Not only will the lotion be less expensive, but it will last longer and the chances of overdoing it as far as being overpowered by fragrance, are slim. The lotions are absorbed into the skin and make the skin feel smooth and supple. The scent lingers on the skin, but does not overpower the user.
People have many reasons for wearing fragrance. The most common is to attract a mate. It has always been known, through centuries, that certain scents were arousing. These scents, through the ages, were used in perfumes and oils as aphrodisiacs. Even if a person is married for 25 years, they still wear a scent to keep their mate attracted.
Another reason people like to wear fragrance is that it makes them feel good about themselves. When using a lotion instead of a perfume, you can pamper your skin as well as get a pleasing fragrance to inhale. The lotion sooths the skin and makes your skin softer to the touch and the scent of the lotion invokes the sense of smell. By using lotion instead of perfume, you can invoke two senses instead of just one, with the same product.
There are many different tranquil lotions around that will make someone feel relaxed and ready to go to sleep. These lotions are used to evoke a mood in a person. A soothing tranquil lotion will make someone feel relaxed after a hard day at work and the scent can, in some cases, help them sleep more peacefully.
Those who want to feel invigorated and also apply scent at the same time can choose from one of the many different lotions that are designed to boost your spirit. Just as aromatherapy, which uses essential oils that are either inhaled or absorbed into the skin, has been used for centuries to cure the blues, relieve anxiety or give someone a boost in spirits, fragrance lotions are now being used the same way. There is virtually a different lotion for every type of mood you wish, whether you are seeking to relax or get motivated.
The fragrance in the lotions is not very strong, but when up close to someone, they give off a pleasant and soft scent. It is for this reason alone that many women are opting for lotions over perfumes. The scent of perfume can be overpowering if too much is applied, and tends to get stale after a while. Lotion, however, stays fresh and does not get a stale type smell after many hours. Because lotions are not comprised of alcohol, they make the skin smoother instead of drying it out.
Women today have many different options when it comes to applying fragrance to their bodies. No longer are we stuck with a few brands of expensive perfume if we want to smell nice. We can now use more natural scents in many different ways, including as lotions, to give ourselves a boost of confidence with a pleasing scent. For this reason, many women are choosing fragrance lotions over perfumes.
