The Best Parfum for Women

Parfum for women is today used to adorn a woman with some of the most delightful scents in nature. However, it was not always used in this way. The origin of perfume is as a cover-up for people who did not have the luxury of regular showers. Indeed, this is why scents have been designed to be as potent as possible. Modern-day perfumes largely consist of alcohol-based perfumes, which begin with a very strong scent and the powerful odor of alcohol. However, today we have access to better hygiene, so perfumes can serve a different purpose – that of adding a wonderful smell to clean skin. As such, a different perfume will better serve our needs.

There are two major problems with alcohol-based perfumes. One is that they are irritants to the skin. This is unnecessary as we are no longer in need of the masking power of alcohol. The other problem is that the reason that they smell so strongly at first is that they do not last – the alcohol evaporates the scent in a very short time period. In today’s world we would be better served

Parfums Gres

It is notable that there are only a few women who successfully get the limelight in the world of fashion design. However, those few women are truly worthwhile and are immensely and significantly adored by the fashion world. Germaine Emilie Krebs is one of them. Born in Paris, France in 1903, Krebs formed her own fashion company called Gres in her home city in 1942.

The fragrance maker is still actively developing, manufacturing and distributing its famous perfume brands, though having been relocated from France to Switzerland.

Alex Couture was the name of the first ever fashion house put up by Madame Gres. That was in 1932. After co-venturing with a friend, she agreed to modify the structure of her maiden business and a year after, the name was changed to Alex Barton.

As a designer, Madame Gres has proven her worth and has natural knack for making

Natural Skin Care

Petrochemicals come from the petroleum industry and it is best to avoid these potentially harmful ingredients in your health and beauty regime for the reasons outlined below.

Some of the petrochemicals used in health and beauty products include benzene, isopropyl alcohol, ethanol and propylene glycol. These chemicals can cause skin irritation, and propylene glycol in particular may cause contact dermatitis.

Ethanol is usually used to dilute liquids, or as a fat solvent in lotions and oils. This petrochemical allows liquids to flow more easily, but when it is used in conjunction with nitrates, they may be carcinogenic.

Isopropyl alcohol is found in many hair color products, body lotions and perfumes in particular, but its use is also common in anti-freeze, which gives you an idea of how unhealthy it is. It can cause headaches and nausea. It also affects your skin by causing it to dry out and age more rapidly than it otherwise would.

Phtalates are used in hairsprays, lipstick and nail varnish, to make them long-lasting and flexible. These may not be listed on your labels, since they can be hidden under the term

And while there is a chance that these may work for you, below are some less expensive suggestions to attempt first.

Eat Healthier

Before you stop reading and close the page, the title says to eat healthier, not healthy! This simply means that you should consider what you are eating before you to go to bed, and what you can do to find healthier alternatives.

The reason to eat a healthier dinner is that fresh ingredients are easier for your body to break down and process before you go to sleep and while you are resting. If you’re rolling your stomach up with soda, gravy, and a range of hard-to-digest fats and oils then your body can’t get the rest it needs while you are asleep, leaving you to either wake up often during the night or wake up feeling like you haven’t been to sleep at all.


Eau De Parfums

Women’s fragrance has definitely gone a long way now since it was chemically engineered millenniums ago. It had many purposes, mainly for the royalties and surprisingly, during the Renaissance period when people didn’t bathe, Eau Extracts and Eau de Parfums were extensively manufactured.

Today, anybody can have complete access to these Eau de Parfums, Eau Extracts and the Eau de Toilette. Colognes and body sprays, which have lower concentrations of aromatic compounds, compared to the Eau de Parfum and Eau Extracts, are also getting very popular. Everyone these days sees to it that they smell good, sometimes for dating purposes, or simply wanting to feel good and beautiful all the time.

As women are the foremost consumers of fragrance, women’s fragrance has since boomed into a lot of varieties. From simple extracts from rose petals mixed with some chemicals essential oils, women’s fragrance have now blossomed into many varieties, with designer fragrances topping the line of quality Eau Extracts, Eau de Parfums, Eau de Toilette, colognes and body sprays. All of these now can be bought at any fragrance store.

Over the years, it has become common for people to wear good smelling perfumes. This is traditionally so because everybody is absolutely interested in eliminating bad smells which is usually caused by body damp, heat and sweat. The most popular and commonest thing people use to achieve this is perfume.

EDP translates to ‘water of perfume, while EDT translates to ‘water of toilet.’ Notwithstanding, these are literal translations and bear only a limited meaning on the actual functions of EDP and EDT.

The Secret Chemicals Found in Natural Beauty Products

“Organic” doesn’t always mean free from synthetic chemicals when it comes to your beauty products.

I am always frustrated when I come across a beauty product that is marketed as “organic” or “natural, but contains lots of synthetic chemicals. Many brands argue that a chemical preservative is a necessary evil. In particular Parabens are used to preserve cream products.

But because of all the recent reports about potential long term health problems associated with Parabens, most organic personal care companies are switching to alternative preservatives. Some are cynically putting in anything that isn’t a paraben, but is far more likely to harm you…customers just don’t know about it yet! For example, there is no excuse for putting in Formaldehyde, a known carcinogen.

Other companies use a naturally occurring Paraben, Japanese Honeysuckle. It seems dishonest to me to market your products as “Paraben Free” if you use a natural Paraben. I have put together a list of the most commonly used chemical preservatives in organic beauty products:

  • Alcohol
  • Works as a preservative when present in concentrations of over 20%. Used in such high proportions it can strip away natural oils and be unsuitable for sensitive skin

Beauty Tips For a Working Gal

After reading an article in Allure asking readers how much makeup is too much for work and agreeing to sponsor a professional image seminar for young graduates at Pepperdine, I started to raise my own questions. Can the corporate and beauty worlds peacefully coexist or will one always be fighting against the other?

In my world both beauty and work can peacefully coexist. But there are certain boundaries that should never be crossed (i.e. donning the smokey eye at work and red lipstick at the same time).

After careful consideration I’ve outlined five beauty tips to carry with you everyday on your way to work.

Estee Lauder has 56 perfumes under its brand. The first perfume was released in 1953 called the Youth-Dew for women. This perfume is still available on the Estee Lauder website or other perfume websites online. This perfume has been well accepted even today because of its sensuous fragrance that brings out the sensual side of the woman. Also this fragrance is amazingly long-lasting. Even though it is a strong perfume, it’s also quite pleasant which rightly represents elegance and sexiness at the same time.

Another great Estee Lauder perfume released in 1969 is the Azuree Pure for women. It is said that Mrs. Estee Lauder created this perfume as she enjoyed the beauty
