Everyone loves to be complimented on the way they smell, but
it’s tricky to spritz the perfect amount without veering into overwhelming
territory. Did you know there are actually particular places on the body that
can keep your perfume delicately wafting all day long? We’ve got four rules to
guarantee perfect application, every time.
Rule #1: Find your
There are specific points on your body on which you can feel
your pulse beating. These areas are also known for releasing a low level of
heat, which helps to radiate your perfume’s scent off of your bod all day long.
The most common points to apply your perfume are on your wrists, your neck,
your cleavage and behind your ears.
Rule #2: Safe
Carefully spray your perfume onto these areas from a
distance of about 6 to 10 inches away from the skin, making sure to avoid
jewelry and clothing since you don’t know how they will react to the perfume
Rule #3: Seasonal switch
You wouldn’t wear a heavy sweater in summer, so why don a
heavy and heady scent? Try experimenting with a new smell for each season,
going with an airy eau de toilette in the warmer months, and something a bit
stronger in the colder temps. In summer, spraying perfume onto clean hair also
helps the scent’s staying power. (Ed note: Try flipping your hair over and
spraying at the base of your scalp!)
Rule #4: Test it out
Our best tip for picking out a new perfume? Find one you
like, then spray it on your wrist at the store and wear it all day long.
Perfumes go through three different layers of notes throughout the day, and if
you still think it smells awesome hours later after it has mixed with your body
chemistry, then we’re betting this is the perf perfume for you!
