There are so many perfume brands in Kenya that you might be spoilt for choice on which to settle on. Choosing one for your regular usage might prove to be a daunting task. We have narrowed down for you in this article a list of the top 10 perfume brands in Kenya. This should help you to easily pick a brand that can fit your budget and has the right scent for you.
Just like wearing nice clothes and looking good, the scent of perfume on your body should not be ignored. It can boost your confidence levels throughout the day by getting rid of body odour especially when sunny or if you work in a hot environment and sweat a lot.
As women, it is common for men also to wear perfume. Some people, especially men, have a strange belief that having a fragrance on your body is strictly feminine but that is just a myth. Some perfumes are specifically designed for men, women, as well as children. It will however be inappropriate for a man to wear a feminine perfume because people will definitely notice.
What you Should Consider when Choosing a Perfume Brand in Kenya to Buy
● Price of the Perfume
For some reason, most perfumes are very expensive to buy. For example, a 100 milliliters bottle for some perfume brands can cost even more than Ksh.20,000. Although most of them are of good quality, you should be careful not to spend all your cash on them. You can still find a good quality perfume bottle for less than Ksh.3,000. Another thing you can do to cut down on the cost is to get a perfume refill. Many businesses offer that service for a fraction of the original cost.
● The scent of the Perfume
While buying a perfume, make sure you know what it smells like. Don’t buy it because you like the design of the container. Otherwise, you might be disappointed when you open it only to realize that it is not the kind of scent you were looking for. To add more to that, some perfume scents are too strong and might not be pleasing to the people around you when you wear them.
Perfume scents are classified into different categories according to what they are made of. Examples are Floral, Woody, Fresh, Oriental, and Oceanic. The Oriental scent gives off a strong fragrance and is mostly used in perfumes for women.
● The capacity of the Perfume Container
Perfumes come in different capacities and most of them are in 100ml bottles. You can also find 75ml and 200ml, depending on the perfume brand.
You should always check the capacity of the perfume before buying to make sure you get value for your money.
● Longevity of the Perfume Fragrance
Some fragrances hardly last a few hours. While shopping, look for a perfume brand that has been tested and proven to last the whole day on your body. That way, it won’t be necessary to be spraying it on your body after every few hours.
