If you're looking for a nice fragrance for yourself or to give as a gift, consider sandalwood, cedarwood, or a combination of the two. These are earthy fragrances that are suitable for men or women. 

You can find sandalwood and cedarwood mixed with lighter fragrances to give them an even more complex scent. You could buy a fragrance like a 50 ML sandalwood cedarwood parfum spray as a graduation gift, birthday present, or to add to your own collection of scents. Here are tips for buying this parfum.

Choose The Strength

You may want a stronger scent in the evening than you would during the day when you're at work. On the other hand, you may want to apply a strong sent early in the morning so it lasts all day. The different types of perfume are based on how concentrated the oils are that give the perfume its fragrance.

Parfum is the strongest concentration of fragrance oils, so it's also the more expensive choice. Yet, it lasts longer and has the strongest scent of sandalwood or cedarwood. If you really love the scent of sandalwood and want your fragrance to last a long time, parfum is a good choice. Eau de parfum isn't quite as strong, so it's a good choice if you want a less intense fragrance you can spray on and wear to work or other areas where you'll be in close space around other people.

Eau de toilette is even weaker and it's suitable when you want a light fragrance that doesn't last a long time. If you want to maintain the scent all day, you'll need to apply it after a few hours. Eau de cologne is another option when you want a weaker sent. The scent dissipates after a couple of hours since it has a low concentration of fragrance oils and a higher concentration of alcohol. However, cologne is a more affordable option than some other types of perfume.

Eau fraiche is a good option when you want a light scent but you don't want a perfume with alcohol in it. Eau fraiche contains a low concentration of fragrance oils mixed with water instead of alcohol. The scent doesn't last too long, so it needs to be applied regularly to maintain the fragrance all day long.

Choose The Fragrance Mix

The main scent groups for parfum include woody, floral, citrus, fruity, aquatic, spicy, and gourmand such as sugar and vanilla. You can choose a mix, such as sandalwood and cedarwood, that are in the same scent group or you can look for a mix that has a gourmand or citrus fragrance added. Just choose a parfum with a higher concentration of sandalwood if that is the primary scent you like and a lower concentration of the complementary scent so it is less obvious.
