I don’t want to serve too much of newly introduced fragrances to you in one week, I think two that you got in the following days is enough! For a change lets play with a poll. Late one as it’s Sunday already but I’m sure we might still have some fun anyway. The topic is perfume & color.
I would like to hear (or should I write “read”) what is your point of view when it comes to colouring a fragrance liquid? We all know that a little bit of pigment might change a lot, especially if the color of the perfume juice matches the concept behind the perfume composition. But lets be honest – in most cases the alcohol is colored before pouring it into the bottle just for a visual effect.
The main disadvantage of using perfume which has an intensive color of the liquid is that the dye can stain our light clothes. If anyone is using such a perfume they have to remember to spray the perfume on your bare skin and wait for 2-3 minutes for an alcohol to evaporate before they put the clothes on. Otherwise a collar of your favourite blouse or t-shirt might get the color of the perfume. And as far as I know those stains are not easy to get rid of once they dry.
Personally I don’t mind using a little bit of light-colored dye to colour the perfume. I especially like the pale purple color of Prada Amber Pour Homme. But most of all I prefer when perfume doesn’t have any color additives and it has a lighter or darker shade of yellow or orange, coming from diluting different perfume oils in ethanol. What do you think? Do you like colorful perfumes or not? And if you do, what is your favourite one?
