It's a popular choice for everyday use, and many brands offer a variety of fresh and mild scents in this concentration.

Powdery fragrances:

  • Characteristics: Powdery scents, often featuring notes like vanilla, iris, or musk, can be gentle and comforting.

They are less likely to trigger sneezing and are generally well-received for their soft and subtle aroma.

When choosing a perfume, it's essential to test it on your skin to see how it interacts with your body chemistry and to ensure that it doesn't cause any allergic reactions.

Additionally, opting for a perfume with a lower concentration of aromatic compounds, such as Eau de Cologne or Eau de Toilette, is likely to provide a milder and more subtle fragrance experience.
