Fragrance Tips: How to Choose a
Fragrance that Suits You
Fragrances can make you feel fresh and even help you turn a few heads. Learn how to correctly apply fragrances for maximum scent effect.
- Do choose a fragrance that suits you. Different fragrances will have a different affect on people, so before you go out and buy one that you like on your best friend, make sure you try it out on your own skin and see how your body chemistry reacts to it.
- Do change your perfume with the change of the season. In winter you may need a stronger scent as the cold may reduce the scent's power.
- Do shop for perfume in the afternoon when your sense of smell is at its peak.
- Do wear more fragrance if you have dry skin; you will need to apply fragrances more often than those who have oily skin.
- Do apply your perfume after you have showered and dried completely. After a shower or bath, your pores open up allowing the perfume to be soaked into your pores.
- Do apply perfume to your pulse points for maximum effect. Your pulse points include the inside of your wrists, at the temples, behind the knees, behind the ears, between the ankles, toes and thighs as well as in your cleavage.
- Don't overdo it. Overpowering smells can make the people around you very uncomfortable and may even cause headaches.
- Don't spray perfume near pearls or costume jewelry. Because perfume is infused with alcohol it can strip these jewels and remove their coating.
- Don't combine perfume with deodorant or deodorant soap. The combination smell may be unpleasant.
- Don't buy perfume without testing it on your own skin first. Spray a little on your skin and wear it for a few hours to see how it reacts and also to determine how long it lasts.
