Why do same perfume smell different on different people?

The same perfume can smell different on different people, primarily due to the interplay of individual factors that influence how a fragrance evolves on the skin. Each person has a distinct body chemistry, characterized by factors like skin pH, natural oils, and unique chemical compositions that can interact with the fragrance's ingredients. This interaction can alter the scent, causing it to project differently and even change its aromatic notes. Additionally, varying skin types, such as oily or dry skin, can impact how long a fragrance lasts and how it settles. Oily skin tends to hold onto scents longer, while dry skin may cause fragrances to fade more quickly.

How does climate affect the fragrances?

In colder weather, perfume molecules move slower, leading to longer-lasting top and heart notes, but reduced projection. Temperature affects perfume's evaporation rate.
