Can I mix two perfumes together; that is use them
Yes, but not in all cases. Each perfume has a harmony which develops from the balance between the top, middle and base notes, and unless one is a professional perfumer, it can be hard to combine different perfumes and succeed in obtaining a pleasant result. It can however be fun to experiment with original combinations, for example, of very different fragrances such as Teint de Neige and Patchouli or Alamut and Musk. In general, it may be wiser to combine a cream or body lotion of a given fragrance with the Eau de Toilette of another. For example the characteristic powdery note of the Teint de Neige body cream combines pleasantly with many other fragrances.
How long can a perfume last?
A good quality perfume, when stored correctly can last up to two or three years without going bad. To store it correctly, the bottle must always be kept well closed, at room temperature and out of direct sunlight. In fact, light, excessive heat and oxidation are the worst enemies of perfume.
Why do perfumes change on the skin and also from skin to skin?
Because each of us has our own personal odour which interacts with the fragrance and can make it be perceived in different ways from person to person. This is a normal phenomenon which also has a positive side: if two people use the same perfume, the effect on them will never be truly identical.
Why, after a while using the same perfume, can I no longer smell it?
Because our sense of smell tends to get used to odours that we smell continuously and after a while it is as if we can no longer perceive them. The fact that we cannot smell our perfume does not mean, however, that others cannot; on the contrary. We must be careful not to wear too much perfume as those around us are not used to it and may find it excessive.
Are all Lorenzo Villoresi perfumes natural?
The Lorenzo Villoresi fragrances contain a large quantity of precious natural ingredients but they also contain prestigious synthetic ingredients, used to obtain particular effects or because the use of certain natural ingredients is prohibited or restricted by law, (see Verbena or Bergamot essence), or because some flowers or plants which have a wonderful fragrance cannot have their natural essence extracted as of yet, (e.g. Lily of the Valley). Nonetheless, wherever possible, natural ingredients are always preferred.
