As we age, our habits, style and preferences change. It is unlikely that at 40 you will apply the same war paint that you did out of inexperience at 20. You probably changed high stilettos (on which you washed your feet and stuffed bumps at discos) for comfortable and fashionable sneakers or slip-ons.
In general, after 40, when life is just beginning, it is advised to radically change. In order not to look younger, but to look younger, you need to change your hairstyle, clothing style, makeup and, of course, choose the right perfume.
By the way, aroma can both make you age and rejuvenate no worse than a plastic surgeon. How to choose the right perfume “outfit” after 40, said Natalia Trognon, training manager at Eisenberg Paris.
Why after 40 you need to change your preferences in aromas
You have probably noticed that with age your preference in aromas has changed, you are no longer interested in light citrus compositions, but you are drawn to aromas with a rose soloist or spices with vanilla at the head.
“This is because the sense of smell weakens with age. As the body ages, the olfactory fibers also atrophy. In addition, there are a number of other factors that can lead to a change / weakening of the sense of smell – various diseases of the nasopharynx, smoking, specific working conditions,” says Natalia.
The second culprit for the dulling of the sense of smell can be considered a hormonal background. With age, it also changes, in women the supply of estrogen decreases and the amount of testosterone increases. That is why, after 40, your favorite fragrance for many years can “sit” badly on you.

Choose the right scent
The most important thing is not to peck at fashion trends. Marketers ask them to sell another beautiful bottle. Before buying, be sure to “measure” the aroma. Yes, exactly, it needs to be measured, just like you try on clothes. It is important to understand whether he is sitting or not. Only in the case of clothes, you can immediately evaluate everything by looking in the mirror. With perfume, the story is more complicated. He should reveal himself to you, playing all the notes of the composition. And this can take a whole day and even night. No wonder perfumers say that in order to fully understand whether a fragrance suits you or not, you need to sleep with him, like with a man.
