To quote Coco Chanel “A woman whose does not wear perfume has no future”. A woman’s choice of perfume is essentially an extension of their personality and style. Think about how powerful our sense of smell is and the lasting impression it leaves. If you aren’t applying your perfume correctly the chances are your scent is going to fade fast and it’s almost like wasting perfume. Perfume can be costly and definitely shouldn’t go to waste.

Let’s get the “don’ts” out of the way.

-Don’t spray perfume out in the air and walk through it like a door. For one thing, this is a massive waste and second, it’s not attaching to the areas of the body for a lasting scent.

– Don’t spray on your wrists and then rub them together. This is not only crushing the scent but it also doesn’t allow the full potential of the perfume to flourish.


– Apply on your pulse points such as inner wrists, inner elbows, and the base of the throat and behind your ears. These are areas where the blood vessels are closest to the skin and produces heat helping the fragrance emanate.

– Allow perfume to dry briefly on your skin.

– Odorless Vaseline applied to the pulse points prior to applying perfume will give the perfume something to stick to rather than sinking straight into your pores.
