Ever wondered why your perfume doesn’t stay all day long? It’s because you have been spritzing it all wrong. But fret not, we bring you all the dos and don’ts when it comes to smelling good.
1. Apply your perfume on your pulse points – If you’ve been applying perfume on your clothes, you need to stop doing that now. Always remember to spray your perfume directly on to your skin- the neck, behind the ears, the collar bone area and wrists are the pulse points to keep in mind. These spots exude heat, which in turn helps your perfume to mix with your own natural odours. Because the fragrance is mixed with your DNA, it gives you your distinct smell. Yes, no two men wearing the same perfume smell the same.
2. Keep a distance of 5 inches – Never spray your perfume too close to your skin. A distance of 5-7 inches is ideal. Remember if your perfume feels wet on the skin, you’ve wasted that spritz.
3. Do not rub – A common mistake people make after spraying, is to rub the perfume. This action basically breaks the molecules and dissipates the fragrance. Once sprayed, let the perfume just settle in.
4. Do not walk into a perfume cloud – This whole theory of walking into a fragrance cloud is a royal waste of your perfume. Half of what you spray into the air, falls flat to the ground, leaving you with barely anything. So if you’ve been doing this, you might want to reconsider it.
