Why some people don't wear perfume?

Sense of Smell is Understated and Underrated

Unlike clothing and jewelry, perfumes are an accessory that many deem as unimportant because it cannot be seen far away. However, many of us are not aware that how one's perfume subconsciously influence our first impressions towards others.

Visualise this scenario: A person who smells great walks by and asks you a question. Your first impression towards him/her naturally become good and you would love to stay close to him/her as you secretly wish to know more about this person. Do you find this scenario relatable?

Have you ever wondered that our 5 senses are the greatest gifts? Yet sense of smell is the most underrated sense.

Why? We usually make a conscious effort to sniff either because of pleasure from food or pure intention to smell good, and nothing else. If that is the case, do you agree then that it is high time to rediscover and reignite the true gift of smell? 

Why Some People Don't Wear Perfume

1. Not part of necessity for daily grooming

Asia countries, some people deem perfume as an accessory but not a necessity for daily grooming. Hence they do not have the habit of wearing perfumes.

However, we can observe the growing trend of wearing perfumes in Malaysia. People are now slowly seeing the importance of wearing perfumes and notice how influential scents can be in our daily lives. Many of the working adults are now incorporating perfumes in their daily grooming, not forgetting university and college students who are building this habit!

Another interesting scenario to notice is that many people are now using their perfume as their personalised statement to promote individual expression, and we're loving this trend!

2. Perfumes are too expensive

We've got to admit it - authentic perfumes are not cheap. I was once the person who uses the same perfume for years and years. All because it hasn't been finished, and I can't afford to commit a few full bottles.

Besides, purchasing perfume is something intimidating to me personally. I am a person who would rather take my own space and time to purchase something pricey than to have a salesperson to assist me. Don't get me wrong, salesperson is a perfect go-to person for scent recommendation. But the inner introvert in me would still prefer to discover scents in my comfort zone.

Harnessing Our Sensory Power Via Scent

That said, what’s best to harness our sniffing sensory power other than scent?

In our previous blog, we spoke about scent having multiple benefits towards our well-being. Overall, not only does it give us confidence and unique identity as a person, it also provides healing properties to our mental and emotional well-being.

As a fun fact, do you know, as early as ancient Egyptian civilisation, scent was regarded as more precious than gold?

To this juncture, I believe no one would dispute the immense power and value the scent can bring to our lives. Like a combustion engine, good scent powers up your confidence psychologically and emotionally. You radiate not just the good smell, but most importantly, the unspoken and immeasurable aura of confidence and charisma to everyone you “touches”.
