We all love fragrances, and love to buy them.
But, due to lack of knowledge, we often buy wrong products. When we go to a boutique to choose a fragrance, we don’t usually pay attention to a particular type of perfume and just buy what we like. Majority of people don’t know what “Eau Fraiche” stands for. Choosing the right type of scent is just as important as choosing a suitable fragrance. It could choke you and everyone around you if it’s too strong! And it can fade away in seconds if it’s too light.
