Apply PerfumeWhatever perfume you bought, expensive and branded name, but if you do not know the proper way to apply them, then the goal will be unmet. It is important to apply your perfume at the right places of the body so that it will last as long as it can for the whole day.

Fragrances react with heat so it’s important to apply perfume to pulse points like the elbow, wrist, back of knees and cleavage and remember, never rub your wrists together once you’ve applied perfume in these parts because doing so will just crush the scent.

SkinpH and Acidity Level of The Skin
High quality fragrance can lasts for about six to eight hours. But it depends on the type and pH level of the skin. pH determines how perfume or the ingredients react with body chemistry. The amount of acidity in skin or the pH level also varies in every person this is why perfumes work differently in each person.

Perfumes often last longer on oily skin because oily skin has more natural moisture that holds in the scent. How if I have dry skin? You may opt to use a fragrance-free moisturizer before applying your perfume or cologne to make the scent last longer. Another way, is you need to reapply your fragrance often. Dry skin doesn't retain scent as well as skin higher in oil content.

Apply PerfumeBest Part of Body to Apply
The best places to apply fragrance are between your breasts, around the ankles, the sides of the neck, and behind knees as these are your pulse points. Another tips for you ladies! Wear a small cotton ball sprayed with perfumes inside bras for a longer lasting scent. You can also spray lightly on your hair, it really help, although of course it will have to be really light lest you want your hair to react negatively.

You can also apply products that have the same scent. to layer on the fragrance and really lengthen the scent. For instance, if a certain scent comes in a lotion, perfume, and soap, then use all three before you go out to make sure you smell fabulous all throughout the day.

If you wear a watch or bracelet, be careful when spraying scents. The fragrance you apply could react to the leather or plastic strap or the gold or silver of the bracelet and dull the material so keep this point in mind when you apply your favorite fragrance.

Choose The Fragance
Fragrance PerfumeIf you’re a woman who wants a romantic and womanly scent, perfumes based on Ylang ylang are often ideal and great to use for dates. If you intend things to go a bit further, wear perfumes based on jasmine, patchouli, sandalwood, and rose which are known for their aphrodisiac properties. Jasmine has a very sensual fragrance that is said to have a great effect on the female hormones. Patchouli has a very strong musky scent that is often considered sexy. It can be overpowering sometimes on its own but when blended with other notes, it can be very seductive. Musk meanwhile is the powerful and potent masculine scent and is great to mix with other scents to add a touch of potent mystery.

Good ImpressionGood ImpressionA good rule of thumb for applying perfume is that less is more. This is particularly important to keep in mind if you are attending a social or business related event where there will be lots of people. Fragrance applied with a light hand to a pulse point is all that is really needed. Usually, big events equal lots of women and men wearing lots of other fragrances. There will be too much competition between fragrances may not be what you are striving for!

A great tip that is not well known for social event is to spray the outside of your hand instead of your wrist. This works because it allows the scent to defuse in an outward direction. It is airy. Another option is spraying the air and walk through the scent. Don’t worry about your outfit. It will not affect your clothing in any adverse manner.
