We’ve all walked people who wear too much fragrance (and those who don’t wear enough) wondering what they were thinking. But we’ve never been told how to wear fragrance. That’s all about to change. Here are the rules of wearing fragrance. This is what you need to know.
Application Of Fragrance
You should spray your after shave or perfume on dry skin, preferably when you’ve had a shower and then dried off Hold the nozzle 3 to 6 inches from your skin and spray in the heat zones –
- Your lower jaw and neck
- Inner elbows
- Shoulders (yes, the shoulders!)
If you are new to a fragrance then start off light, spraying only a little. This gives you the chance to know what it will smell like. If it isn’t strong enough then apply a little more, until you find an amount that works for you.
Preserving The Aroma
The smell from your after shave or perfume will last depending on what you do and the quality of your fragrance and the notes it contains. But there are some ways you can look after the aroma and make it last.
First things first, don’t spray the perfume on your wrists and then rub them together. This breaks down the molecular bond and makes the fragrance weaker immediately. All you are doing there is making it last a shorter period of time.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s look at what else you can do here. I’m afraid it’s more ‘don’ts.’
- Don’t spray your fragrance in the air and walk through it. You just end up with a carpet that smells great – that’s where most of it will end up.
- Don’t spray it on your clothes (in fact, try to spray your fragrance when you are naked) because you might stain your fabrics and the fragrance oils won’t get a chance to work with your body.
These are the rules of wearing fragrance – how many did you already know?
