Harry Slatkin, founder and creative force behind Slatkin & Co. and one of the country's top fragrance experts, believe you shouldn't rush into buying a fragrance when shopping.
"Take a step back before deciding what fragrance to wear," he says.
Indeed, what a fragrance smells like on one person may smell completely different on someone else.
"So just because you like the way something smells when it is in the bottle doesn't mean that is what it is going to smell like when it is on you," says Slatkin. "Let your nose direct you."
