Fragrantica sandalwood perfume

Perfumes have always had a deep connection with our personality and style statement. In general, it keeps your body fresh, free of odors and stinks, and with time, manufacturers put some effort into enhancing what fragrances do. Now, some fragrances of the world’s top brands offer innovations that exude elegance, luxury, and sophistication.

According to an EDB report, the global fragrance market adds socio-economic value worth a whopping S$58.92 billion. Being part of South Asia’s “manufacturing and innovation” hub, Singapore’s perfumeries keep inspiring people to make perfumes intrinsically linked to their lifestyle.

The top branded perfumes are often expensive, and the high-end ones may cost you thousands per bottle. The price comes with a variety of factors: rarity, ingredients, bottle design, etc. Since perfume reflects your personality and taste, choosing one of those high-quality branded perfumes for everyday wear is essential. Let’s check out why!

Why choose a branded perfume

You may agree that most of the fragrances of the world’s top brands are more expensive than the average ones due to high quality, rare use of the ingredients, top-notch branding, etc. But you also know the proverb that says, ‘The cheap always turns out more expensive.’ The market is quite occupied with tons of cheap perfumes and replicas of top brands. Most of those non-branded contain low-quality ingredients and last for a very short period. In most cases, the scent fades away so fast that you need to spray frequently and end up emptying the bottle soon. Thus a cheap perfume can cost you more. Moreover, non-branded perfumes often result in smelling bad before fading away.

However, a luxury fragrance not only complements your style and individuality but also ensures quality that should come with the price. Quality fragrances lift your spirit and self-esteem, bring you unforgettable memories, complete your overall impression, and of course, they are free from any allergy, skin irritation, and other harms. Besides, branded perfumes create incredible and sophisticated scents by gently shifting between pleasant notes that summon others’ attention and compliments.

So, is this something you could enjoy with an imitation? Definitely not. You need something that outlasts average smells; branded perfumes are the choice. For your convenience, we have brought a quick guide on some of the fragrances of the world’s top brands that you must try in 2021!
