Tips on Applying Perfume!
Coco Chanel once said ‘a woman should apply perfume in those areas where she would like to be kissed’ While this is most likely true (and utterly French), perfume does not taste good so rather keep that in mind when applying yours and avoid any areas that may be enthusiastically nibbled…
The best time to apply perfume is straight after a shower or bath. Don't put on perfume if you are going to be sunbathing.
The "pulse points" are locations on the body where the blood vessels are closest to the skin. These spots emanate heat, which can help fragrance to emanate from your skin into the air. (It's the same principle used by essential oil diffusers). Apply your perfume to these points - namely, the inner wrists, the base of the throat, behind ear lobes, in the cleavage, behind knees, and the inner elbows. As you wear your perfume throughout the day, it will react with your body heat and continue to emit scent.
Applying perfume is simple - simply spray or dab. (Do not rub your wrists together after application or you will "crush" the scent). Some women enjoy spritzing their perfume into the air and then walking through it. While this does work, it also lets quite a bit of the fragrance go to waste, so it's not the best method if you're on a budget. Always apply perfume before putting on your clothes and jewelry. Some fragrances will leave permanent stains on fabrics, metals, and pearls. (be sure to test it on a hidden area of the fabric first) Be careful with applying perfume to freshly-washed hair, or the natural oils (and any lingering hair products) can affect the odor. Since perfume contains alcohol and can be drying to your strands, apply sparingly and from a distance. Wear daytime fragrances lower on your body. As the perfume evaporates, it rises up, so you continue to smell it all day. Sritz behind the knees, on the wrists, and a little on your skirt/pants. When you put on an evening fragrance—which is anything that makes you feel more sensual—spray it behind your ears and around your neck so that it envelops you right away, rather than rising up slowly. Spritz a little in the hair too. Wear spicy perfume for casual wear; floral for more elegant occasions and natural scents for work and every day..
