How To Wear Fragrance

Start with a Fresh Canvas: Begin by cleansing your skin with a shower or bath. This helps remove any lingering scents and allows the perfume to meld with your natural skin oils.

Hydrate Your Skin: Apply an unscented body lotion or Vaseline to moisturize your skin before applying perfume. Hydrated skin helps lock in the fragrance for a longer period.

Sequence Matters: Remember the golden rule – perfume before clothes. Applying perfume before getting dressed prevents any potential staining or alteration of the scent due to fabric.

Target Pulse Points: Concentrate your perfume application on pulse points. These areas, including the wrists, neck, behind the ears, and the inner elbows, emanate heat which helps diffuse the fragrance throughout the day.

Spray, Don’t Rub: When applying perfume, resist the urge to rub it into your skin. Rubbing can break down the fragrance molecules, altering the scent and reducing its longevity. Instead, let the perfume settle naturally on your skin.

Moderation is Key: Less is more when it comes to perfume application. Avoid overdoing it by applying just a few spritzes. A subtle fragrance is more inviting than an overpowering one.

Spritzing Technique: Aim to spray the perfume from a distance of about 6 to 8 inches away from your skin. This ensures a fine mist that evenly distributes the fragrance without drenching your skin.

Hair Perfuming: For a delicate and lingering scent, lightly mist your hair with perfume. Avoid spraying directly onto your hair to prevent drying it out; instead, spray the perfume into the air and walk through the mist or lightly spritz your hairbrush before combing through your locks.

Layering Technique: To enhance the longevity of your fragrance, consider layering products from the same scent line. Start with a scented body wash or lotion, followed by the perfume. This builds depth and complexity to the fragrance, ensuring it lasts longer.

Reapplication with Caution: If you feel the need to reapply perfume throughout the day, do so sparingly. Over-application can lead to olfactory fatigue, where your nose becomes desensitized to the scent. A single subtle touch-up is often sufficient to revive the fragrance.
