Why you should try Perfume Oils

  Perfume Oil v Alcohol Perfume

Roll-on perfume oils are not as popular as standard spray-on perfumes, but they’re perfect for those who don’t always feel like walking around in a cloud of what’s clearly the latest identifiable perfume. If you’re the type of girl who loved say, the Chloé perfume before you started smelling it on every woman walking down the street, then a more exotic oil fragrance may just be for you, or a good alternative.

So, why should you try them ? Here are a few reasons :-

Perfume Oils last longer.


The actual perfume elements and extracts in oil fragrances are far more concentrated than those in standard alcohol-based eau de toilettes and perfumes, which contain only a small amount of true fragrance diluted with alcohol and other fillers. Oils tend to “stick” to the skin and linger, whereas many standard perfumes are actually better applied to clothing for longer wear as fabrics give them something to cling to.

They’re less likely to be irritating on skin.


It goes without saying that the alcohol and other dehydrating chemicals in most perfumes can be irritating and drying to the skin; (did you know that eau de toilettes, both his and hers variety contain up to 98% alcohol ? It's no wonder the smell doesn't last long). Those with dry skin often have a hard time wearing scent because of how quickly it dries and dissipates. Oils, on the other hand, are moisturizing, which not only helps them to last longer but also makes them suitable for any skin type.

Perfume Oils are more Bang for your Buck.


Oil fragrances are typically packaged as rollerballs (CraftPrice versions are 10ml rollerballs), which you then apply to warm areas like your wrists, inside of your elbow, behind your ears, and the back of your neck. You can apply as much or as a little of the scent as you want, allowing for total control. Standard alcohol-based perfumes in spray bottles often feel like they’re being wasted, especially when you’re spraying it into the air and walking through the resulting mist. A cheap alcohol-based perfume almost always smells like just that, but you can pick up a great-smelling perfume oil here at CraftPrice for less than a tenner. Why pay £50 to £150 for a fancy bottle and box?

Perfume Oils are less overpowering.


It’s true that the higher concentration in perfume oils often makes them smell stronger and richer, but they’re less likely than alcohol-based perfumes to leave behind a sillage or trail. If you’re sensitive to overbearing fragrances that feel like you’re walking around in a cloud of scent, oils are the perfect solution. They stay close to the skin and radiate outward thanks to the warmth of your pulse points, but you’ll feel like you’re wearing a scent rather than having a scent wear you.

Guys, perfume oils are for you too !

Our range of perfume oils for men (we could call them cologne oils if you don't like the sound of perfume) are really great too and are supplied in 10ml roll on bottles, about the size of a Clipper lighter. You can easily slip a bottle in your pocket when you go out and freshen up on the go. It's a bit difficult to do that with a bottle of Boss Bottled or any other makes in your jeans though.

Similarly, ladies can pop a couple in their handbags without taking up hardly any space at all and freshen up on the go too.
