Questions and Answers
Q: How does Volnay Yapana Perfume smell?
A: Volnay Yapana Perfume is an earthy, seductive fragrance that turns heads wherever you go. Sensual base notes of vanilla, patchouli and iris blend perfectly into the spicy and floral middle notes of clove and rose. Zesty top notes of pink pepper and pink grapefruit add just enough lightness to this fragrance.
Q: Where do you apply Volnay Yapana Perfume?
A: If you want a stronger fragrance, apply Volnay Yapana Perfume directly to the pulse points on your wrists, neck, chest and inner elbows. If you like a lighter fragrance, spray it onto your clothing and hair. To increase the longevity of the fragrance, layer it with similar scents and apply it right after you shower and moisturize your skin.
Q: What is the fragrance concentration?
A: Volnay Yapana Perfume is an eau de parfum. Eau de parfums are stronger than eau de toilettes and eau de colognes because they contain up to 20% essential oils. The essential oils help to separate the scents a bit so that you get more of each individual note.
Q: Is Volnay Yapana Perfume for him or her?
A: Although Volnay Yapana Perfume was created with women in mind, anyone who enjoys amber and leathery fragrances can wear this one.
Q: Does Volnay Yapana Perfume last long?
A: Eau de parfums like Volnay Yapana Perfume have an average longevity of 4-6 hours. There are several factors that determine the strength and longevity of your fragrance. The warmer the temperature is outside, the stronger your fragrance will be. Your body chemistry factors in, too, because the fragrance will mix with your natural scent and dissipate. You can increase longevity by applying petroleum jelly to your pulse points before spritzing on the perfume. This increases the time it takes for the fragrance to interact with your body's pH levels.
Q: What fragrances smell similar?
A: Fragrances that smell similar to Volnay Yapana Perfume include Shalimar by Guerlain, Le Parfum Couture by M. Micallef and Bal a Versailles by Jean Desprez.
Q: What season should I wear Volnay Yapana perfume?
A: The earthy base notes of patchouli, siam benzoin and rice create a seductive fragrance that is best to wear during the fall and winter months. However, the floral middle notes of rose and citrus top notes of pink grapefruit and bergamot mean this scent is also wearable during the spring and summer months. Just remember that the scent will smell stronger when the weather is warm.
Q: Where can I buy it?
A: Perfume.com is perhaps one of the best online fragrance retailers because we offer the widest selection of authentic perfumes and colognes, competitive pricing and top-notch customer service.
