Applying perfume is a highly personal thing.
Just like the way you style your hair, when using perfume it comes down to your personal preferences. Maybe you enjoy a perfume to last you all day long or maybe you like a perfume to waft from the stands of your hair -- these things all depend on your unique taste. However, as personal as it is, just like there are hair industry styling standards, there are perfume industry application standards that help you get the most out of your perfume experience. Adventure to our blog and learn some tips and tricks to the application along with lists of perfumes made to last all day.

Rooted in ancient times, the art of perfume is intriguing and complex.
Did you know that perfumery is actually a science? Chemistry and time-tested traditions are all involved in making ideal blends. As a matter of fact, there is a lot that goes into creating the perfume you rely on daily, everything from understanding notes to manufacturing concentrations. We have dedicated our lives at Valley of Roses to learning this art and now want to share some of it with you. Check out our more in depth blog about the history of perfume and fragrance to get a better understanding.
