The fact that we live in a mainly visual culture can make us underestimate our sense of smell. However, the truth is that how we smell is as much important as how we look.
Our sense of smell plays a fundamental role in our everyday life. Not only is vital to our survival, it also can make us feel attracted or repelled to someone, it can trigger very deep memories and create instant emotions.
Furthermore, the way we smell sends a message to our entourage about who we are and how we feel. Even though, parfum are industrial items, the way each one smells in every skin is completely different and unique.
Thus, finding the right fragrance is very important in order to send the right message to the people we interact with; feel comfortable and relaxed in our own skin.
However, the prices of most of the popular parfum brands are so high that more and more customers are left behind every day, since they find that most of the fragrances are completely unaffordable.
A 100 ml bottle of Gucci Bloom Dupe can cost around of $138 US dollars. It is estimated that 100 ml are equal to 1000 sprays and each time we wear parfum we use around four sprays, which means a bottle of 100 ml lasts for 200 days if we use it every day. Therefore, if we want to use on a daily basis, we will need more than one bottle for year, which means that we need to invest 276 in just buying perfume.
Fortunately, there is a new trend of natural, clean and affordable fragrances that allow us to smell just as Gucci Bloom Dupe but without compromising our economy.
