Before you purchase a new perfume, free sample size scents can help you decide if a fragrance compliments your body chemistry prior to making the splurge.
How do you go about testing a fragrance prior to making the investment?
Most every department store or drugstore that carries higher end fragrances has a fragrance counter stocked with testers of perfume and cologne.
Obviously, the best way to sniff out a new fragrance is to visit a fragrance counter and spritz the scent directly on your skin.
Within thirty minutes, the fragrance will begin to mix with your body's natural chemistry and either compliment or compete with your body's natural odor.
Although a fragrance may smell beautiful upon first spritz, the dry down will determine whether or not the scent is pleasing to the senses and complimentary on you.
Most mass produced fragrances offer what is called a free perfume sample for extended fragrance testing.
Whether it is to promote the launch of a new fragrance or to market a well-known scent of perfume, free sample size testers are normally packaged in a small plastic or glass vial, holding a minute amount of the scent.
Fragrance vials are available at every department store fragrance counter.
Not every fragrance line will have sample vials available for testing, and availability is subject to on hand stock and popularity of the fragrance.
Because fragrance can be altered when stored improperly, you'll need to take precautions to store your samples and uphold the integrity of the scent.
To prolong their shelf life, always keep fragrance samples in a cool, dark place out of direct sunlight.
In the world of beauty and fragrance, there are plenty of consumers who save samples, whether they be cosmetic samples received through bonus giveaways, or sample size perfumes.
If you truly want to test out a new fragrance, hit the cosmetic counter to ensure the most accurate application.

If you're on the fence, it's best to sample a few oils to see if they fit into your lifestyle prior to making the switch to an alcohol-free fragrance wardrobe.
