Coco Chanel once said that a woman should apply perfume in the areas where she would like to be kissed. While that’s most likely true, we have some guidelines you can follow as well.
Apply at the pulse points
Pulse points are locations on the body where the blood vessels are closet to the skin. For example, the inner wrists, base of throat, behind ear lobes, in the cleavage, and inner elbows. These places will react with your body heat and continue to emit scent throughout the day. Avoid rubbing the wrists together after application to prevent ‘crushing’ the scent.
Perfume your hair
Misting your hair with perfume will leave a gentle scent throughout the day. Only spray perfume to freshly-washed hair, or else the natural oils will affect the odor. Apply perfume at a distance since perfume contains alcohol and can be drying to your strands.
Moisturize your skin
Scent will fade faster if your skin is dry. Apply fragrance – free moisturizer to your body before spraying on your favorite perfume. Layering products of the same scent is also an effective way to make your perfume last longer. Purchase the body lotion from your favorite eau du parfum, apply the lotion before spraying on the perfume.
Always apply perfume before putting on your clothes and jewelry. Some fragrance will leave stains on fabrics, metals, and pearls.
