How to Apply Perfume

There is a science on how to apply perfume.  It’s simple yet effective and will increase the staying power of your fragrance of choice.

So, let’s begin.  Your major pulse points are between your breasts, around your ankles, the sides of your neck, the base of your throat and behind your knees. These are the spots to which you should apply your perfume.  However, there is something you should keep in mind.  If you wear a watch around your wrist, or some sort of pendent or chocker that rests in one of these places, the perfume could have a chemical reaction with the leather or metal and dull or damage the material.

Your skin type also comes into play here.  If you have dry skin you’ll need to reapply your perfume more often, but for those of you with oily or combination skin, this isn’t necessary as oily skin retains the scent longer.

Now, before you get to the point of reapplying, you need to know how much to apply in the first place.  The rule of thumb is that less is more.  A light spritz on a pulse point is really all that’s needed.  And this is especially true if you’re attending any kind of crowded event, where every man and woman in the room may be wearing some kind of scent.  Too many fragrances trying to overpower each other in the same room isn’t what anyone is after.

Here’s a little known tip that’s perfect for the social event scenario mentioned above.  Spray the outside of your hand instead of your wrist.  This allows the scent to defuse outwardly instead of inward, creating an airy and subtle release of your fragrance.  Another way of achieving this effect is to spray your perfume into the air and then walk through the scent as the particles fall around you, adhering to you.  This way of applying your perfume is subtle, yet extremely effective.  And you don’t need to worry about damaging the fabric of your clothes when you do this as they will not be affected in any adverse manner.

And there’s another reason why less is more, unfortunately it’s one we would rather not think of.  As we age, our sense of smell is not as sharp as it once used to be, and this dulling effect means we might not be able to gauge whether we are wearing too much, instead of just enough of our favourite perfume.  We might end up assuming that since we can’t smell our cologne on our own skin, that no one else can.  Never assume that!
