Perfumes are irresistible for both Ladies and Men. In spite of branded or non branded or designer one. Whatsoever!. All perfumes have a basic way of emitting the fragrance. Places like Middle East  flooded with N number of perfume, oils and more. There are few basic information YOU SHOULD KEEP IN YOU MIND which is must while we purchase a perfume. So first decide what kind of smell you expect from your perfume at the end of the day because that is what your perfume is all about.If you dint get a clear picture yet. Keep reading…

A perfume is made of dozens, even hundreds, of ingredients that merge with each others in the fragrance pyramid to create a unique scent. This fragrance reveals itself in 3 distinct acts, 3 notes that reveal its character, its identity, and will do everything to seduce you…

GIPHY 3.gif

so let us know some facts and it is really interesting My ladies….

Have you heard of fragrance Pyramid ?

yes , you heard it rite.

1

Press the spray, and give in to a first tonic scent… Here is the top note (the top of our fragrance pyramid), made of fresh and volatile ingredients as citrus fruits and aromatics. You will certainly rely on it to choose your perfume, and it lasts from a few minutes up to 2 hours.

Gradually, the middle note appears and replaces the top note. Less explosive, it embodies however the main theme of the perfume and represents its identity and intensity. Made of floral, fruity, green or spicy notes, it will remain on your skin for about 3 hours.

Finally, an intimate scent will gently bind closely to your skin for hours, and even days on your clothes. It is the base note, made of persistent, generous and captivating ingredients (woody, balsamic), which make your fragrance last over and over again, and fix the top and middle notes to give depth to your perfume…

Although resulting from a thorough and precious work, the perfume is not an exact science. Every skin being different, a fragrance perception and time duration vary from a skin to another. This is the magic, the beauty of Fragrance : your perfume makes you unique, and you make unique your perfume…

Please Find guide chart to select/pick the right perfume and apply perfumes in the correct way.

Quick Tips:

  • Perfume notes are basically the order in which you smell the various components of a perfume. They last for different amounts of time, with the the base notes lasting the longest, and the top notes lasting the least amount of time. Pick a perfume which has base notes you like, because that will stay on you for quite a while.

  • In fact, a better idea is to apply moisturizer/Vaseline before applying perfume, so that the scent is absorbed better. Dry skin does not hold fragrance very well, so make sure your skin is hydrated. Moreover, perfume has alcohol which dries skin out further, so it is never a good idea to skip applying hydrating lotions if you are going to wear perfume.

  • Perfumes should not be stored in hot or humid places like bathrooms, as these, especially heat, degrade their quality. Store them in cool, dry spots away from sunlight, to make them last longer.

 

Do you take the time to discover the top, middle and base notes when you try a perfume for the first time? I am going to try it.

 

 

Love.Cheers.

Tips for organizing Hijab wadrobe

Dear Hijabis,

Okay.Organizing your scarves doesn’t have to be difficult. I personally can be a bit lazy at times, so hanging my hijab’s isn’t a good option for me. I also cant stand not finding things or having wrinkles that I have to iron out, so throwing them all in a bin just wont work and another thing is searching Hijab Pins when you are getting ready for work. so let us solve both the issues.

2

Hijab pin is an elegant way to secure your expensive scarf. Other than holding the hijab in its place, it gives each hijab an unique identity to suit each and every occasion. However, you would find it harder to organize them properly for effective access. Some helpful tips that can help you in this regard is given here,

  • Large pill boxes or utility boxes make good storage spaces. By using them, organizing your pins would not be very difficult.
  • Pincushions are one of the better ways to stick your pins. If you do not have pin cushions at your home, try inexpensive stuffed toys. But it is necessary to keep them away from your children.
  • Sticking your pins into a small bar of moisture free soap would make sure that your pins remain sharp and prevent them from getting rusted.
  • Replace your hijab pins and accessories frequently. Otherwise, blunt or rusty pins could damage the hijabs.
  • If a berry headed pin has lost its color or you got bored of its original color, apply a suitable colored nail polish on their heads.
  • Magnets can come in handy for picking pins up and you can also use them to hold your pin while arranging your scarf.

 

Next struggling to organize your scarf collection? Are you searching through the web to find out some amazing and unique ways to store your hijabs? Then you are at the right place! Rolling them up and putting in the drawers will not be conducive and the technique is too tedious. Here we have provided a  list of some cute and organized ways to display your hijabs instead of keeping them hidden in drawers. Read on!

Shelves

Shelving units are the ideal option for storing hijabs or scarves! If you have a lot of scarves and wants to maximize the space to store them, then this is a good organizing solution. Roll scarves up and put it in the shelves to make it easy to store and easy to find!

1

Custom Storage

Add a hijab storage shelf if you are getting a custom closet made. This solution is the most effective and expensive organization tip. The width of each unit must be designed to suit the width of your scarves in mind.

4

Bins and Baskets

If you are not ready to invest in a piece of furniture, then use small baskets and bins to organize your hijabs. It will be easier for you to find the ones that you are looking for by rolling up your scarves and placing them length-wise in the bin.

5

Ready-made Hangers

Another great way of organizing hijabs is buying hangers that are already made for hanging scarves or other accessories. You can also re purpose a hanger for trousers and use that to hang and organize hijabs. This is both cost-effective and easy to organize and maintain. Dubaities might get it in IKEA and any Dirham stores.

Beat the heat

Hello Dubai-ties!

Here we are getting closer to the peak Summer season of the year. All we would like to do it Stay cool and stay calm. But this does not suit to the people who lives in Middle East. The moment you step out all you look for is some shade, sunglass, tissue, handheld battery fans, Perfumes and water. Here are few ways to Beat the heat for this summer. There are few of us who escape by working indoor and a lot stuck outdoor . But no matter how much you enjoy the warmer months, everyone needs ways to cool down when the summer heat rises. There are plenty of ways to find that cool energy and seek cooler experiences without blasting electricity-sucking air conditioning. Here are some natural ways to help you balance your hot summer adventures with cool breezy activities

Stay Away

Turmeric-Mask

I mean stay away of outdoor activities if it is possible for you . Yes. The best way is not go out. You can also use circulating fans and limit your use of electrical products. Try opening your windows and using fans to circulate the air if you feel like the air is stagnant and hot.

Dress Light
Wear light colors and breathable fabrics, especially on those scorching days. We suggest cotton and linen. Especially Hijabs ladies opt for cotton as it would absorb sweat as well. Opt for color abaya and colored umbrella.

Essential Oils

turmeric-root.jpg
Peppermint and Spearmint Essential Oil both contain menthol which have cooling properties. Add a few drops to your diffuser at home, or make your own body mist for when you’re on the go.

Make a makeshift air conditioner

4.jpg

If it’s hot but not humid, place a shallow bowl of ice in front of a fan and enjoy the breeze. As the ice melts, then evaporates, it will cool you off.This tip is when you are at your home and you still dont feel the Cooling effect.

Some spray that can cool you down

5

While elephants wet their ears first by blasting water from their trunks, humans should begin with their wrists to quickly cool down the blood flowing through their veins. Keep a spray bottle in the refrigerator, and when the going gets hot, give yourself a good squirt. This tip is specially for folks who travel in Bus or walk a little outdoor.

Have a quick shower

5.jpg

Morning and evening go for a quick shower. And turn on the vent in the bathroom. When taking a shower, be sure to use the vent fan: It helps sticky moisture escape.

Eat Cool, Be Cool.
Consume foods that are cooling to your internal systems. Go for sweet and ripe summer fruits, fresh veggies, and foods that are bitter or astringent rather than salty or spicy.

Stay Hydrated

6

Swig often. To replace the moisture that you lose as you perspire, be sure to drink. As you lose water to dehydration, your body temperature rises, so replacing fluids is essential to keeping cool. Avoid beverages that contain alcohol, caffeine, or lots of sugar, which are dehydrating.

 

Hope you Loved it. Stay Cool.

cheers.
