My daughter insists that I dab perfume while she loves the hissing sound of deo and applies it like a big lady loving the floral scent.What do you do?

It depends on the situation really. For everyday outings, like office, shopping etc I prefer the deo. I find it light both in fragrance and on my pocket too. Also, I feel deo is more freshening than perfume. However, if it’s a proper formal occasion like wedding or party and specially at night, I would prefer perfume.

Thanks for the response. It was very apt of you to inform that a general opinion that emerges is that perfume for the formal ocassions while deos for the less formal ones. It is really amazing when I see ladies spraying seven to eight perfumes on their palms and snuffing them claiming thy knew what scentwas the most alluring. However, the truth is that a nose can distinguish among only three perfumes at a time.

Thanks for the response. I think you very rightly pointed out in good spirit that the natural body odor is not that much a problem if a good hygiene is maintained. Besides barring some good brands of deos and perfumes, the local brands that duplicate really carry the risk of carrying carcinogens that may seep through the skin and may be harmful in the long run.

Thanksfor a different response. It is really good to know that a semblance of variety can also be created by dabbling a different perfume as per the time of the day and the mood.

Thanks forthe response. It really reminds me of my college days when we were short of pocket money and did exactly the same. Sicte perfume at that time seemed very costly in comparison to the deo, all of our college friends used deo except in some special receptions wher we sparingly wore the perfume.

Thanks fo the response. It feels good to know that your choice perfectly gels with my taste as well. My favorite perfume is the French perfumes which I adore from the time when I was young enough to dab the french perfume of my mother. My mother had to go to the college as a chemistry lecturer. So to avoid the smell of hydrogen sulphide in the practical classes, she kept a bottle of this perfume and after promptly washing hands, used to apply that.
