What Age Is Appropriate To Start Wearing Perfume?

When did you start to wear perfume? Was it when you first discovered your mother’s makeup, jewelry, and perfume bottles? Or was it later on in life when you had your first crush on a boy? Or was it even later, when you were thinking about the idea of getting married? I guess the time of when one should start wearing perfume is questionable.

As a young girl, you may just be playing around and think it is cute to wear your mother’s perfume. If your mother owned Bvlgari perfume, like Omnia Crystalline or Omnia Coral, she must have had really exquisite and elegant taste. Bvlgari perfume is for women that are very elegant and have luxurious style. She might have also owned a Prada bag or two, if she was wearing such luxurious perfume such as Bvlgari. At a young age, perfume was probably just another item to use to dress up. I don’t think it is appropriate for young girls to be walking around outside with their mothers with perfume on, but just to try it on and wear as something fun in your house is quite harmless.

As a teenager, when one starts to be attracted to the opposite gender, there is a different reason for trying on different scents. At first it was just a tool for dress up, but as a teenager it turns into a tool of attraction. It may be more appropriate for an older teenager to walk around outside with perfume on, but for a younger teenager, say a thirteen year old girl for example, it would be less appropriate. Younger teenagers are still very innocent and less ready for marriage, whereas older teenagers are closer to marriageable age, and therefore, it would seemingly be more appropriate for them to start wearing perfume.

When one becomes an older teenager, or even into their early twenties, it is then acceptable for young women to be wearing different scents. I think this age is not even questionable about whether it is appropriate or not to wear perfume. At this age one is ready to be dating and eligible for marriage. Then it doesn’t seem strange that a woman is walking around with perfume, but as a younger girl, it may seem strange.

In conclusion, it is questionable about what age exactly it is appropriate to start wearing perfume. However, it seems inappropriate for a young girl to be walking outside with perfume on. For an older teenager or young woman in her early twenties, it seems acceptable to be wearing perfume then. It is the age range in between that is negotiable about the appropriate time to start wearing different scents.
