Can’t decide on a Perfume?

25 Sep

Everyone has their own personal preferences when it comes to fragrances. Never purchase a perfume just because you like it.

1. Layer your fragrance. Start in the shower with shower gel, preferably one that matches your perfume.

2. Pulse Points are very important when applying perfume, they are areas on your body, like the temples or the bend of the elbow that produce heat.

4. Don’t rub your wrists together if you have sprayed perfume on them. Doing so will only compress the scent instead of allowing the scent to develop naturally with your own body chemistry.

5. The best time to put on perfume is after a shower.
