1. Spray the perfume on your pulse points, namely, the inner wrists, base of the throat near the collar bone, behind ear lobes, inner elbows, cleavage, and behind the knees immediately after bathing. These parts are places where the blood vessels are close to the skin hence emits extra body which allows the perfume to diffuse from the body, hence, allowing it to leave behind a trail of scintillating fragrance.
2. Hydrate your skin by applying unscented moisturizer before spraying on the perfume as the perfume stays on longer when the skin is hydrated than when the skin is dry.
3. Avoid rubbing the wrists together post application, as it diminishes the effect of the perfume. Rubbing your wrists together breaks down the molecules of the perfume and dampens the smell.
4. Applying petroleum jelly on your body before spraying on the perfume helps perfume droplets cling to the petroleum jelly rather than sinking into your skin pores which helps in maximizing the aroma.
5. When applying hold fragrance away from your body about 5-7 inches away and ensure you point the nozzle in the direction of the body. If your skin gets too wet from the perfume, then it means that you are holding it too closely hence need to move it slightly away from your body.
6. Do not apply your perfume or cologne on your clothes as it does not last for long and it can stain your clothes. Perfumes work better on pulse points rather than on clothes because the molecules interact better when in indirect contact with the skin.
7. Store your perfume in a cool place away from heat, sunlight and humidity. This is because heat and light change the chemical make-up of the perfume. The perfume then changes smell and perfume hence smells different and in most cases bad.
8. Try not to overdo your perfume. A little bit goes a long way when it comes to perfume. It is best to put on too little than too much. You can always sneak a bottle in your purse, and apply some later if you feel it is not strong enough.
9. Comb perfume through your hair. Fragrances latch onto fibers, so your hair is a great place to smell good for long periods of time. The perfume also attaches to hair products, such as shampoo and conditioner, making the fragrance last even longer. Simply mist the spray onto the comb/brush. You can also apply some perfume with your hand or a towel to the comb/brush. Run it gently through your hair. Make sure to get it all over, rather than just in a few spots. Make sure not to get too much in your hair, otherwise the alcohol in the perfume will dry your hair out.
10. When applying any fragrance please consider that there are several factors which can affect the natural smell of your skin and, in turn, the way a scent smells on you and how long it lasts. For instance, your mood, stress level, age, body chemistry, diet, and current medications may all alter the scents you wear. Similarly, factors such as dry or oily skin can even affect the amount of time a fragrance will last after being applied.
