How and Where to Apply Perfume to Make It Last Longer.
Hello my lovely people. How are you? Ready for weekend?
I love perfume. I think it’s so cool to have a signature scent that adds to the ambiance of who you are, and one that people remember you by.
The Pulse Points — The “pulse points” are locations on the body where the blood vessels are closest to the skin. These spots emanate heat, which can help fragrance to emanate from your skin into the air.
How to Apply Perfume — Applying perfume is the simplest of matters simply spray, dab, or in the case of a solid perfume compact, swipe.Always apply perfume before putting on your clothes and jewelry. Some fragrances will leave permanent stains on fabrics, metals, and pearls.
Perfuming the Hair — Misting the hair with fragrance is a great way to leave a gentle scent in your wake, as you move through your day. Those who you choose to get closer to be will also be rewarded with a fuller scent. Be careful only to apply perfume to freshly-washed hair, or the natural oils (and any lingering hair products) will affect the odor. Since perfume contains alcohol and can be drying to your strands, apply sparingly and from a distance. A spray or two from 8 inches away will do.
Making Fragrance Last Longer — There are a few tricks to help your fragrance last longer. For instance, a scent will fade faster when skin is dry. Applying fragrance-free moisturizer to your body is an excellent preparation for applying fragrance, and will help you get more bang for your perfume buck.You can also help your perfume to go the distance by applying some petroleum jelly to your skin, and then applying your scent on top of that. The perfume droplets will cling to the petroleum jelly rather than sinking into your pores which can reduce or eliminate the need to reapply fragrance later in the day.
How to Remove Fragrance From Skin — When you are surrounded by an unpleasant smell, all you want to do is get away from it.
1. Hit the drugstore for witch hazel or rubbing alcohol (both inexpensive). Wet a cotton ball with either, and use to wipe skin clean.
2. Create a paste with equal parts of baking soda and warm water. Rub it into the skin and let sit for up to ten minutes, before rinsing with warm water.
3. Whip up a dressing by mixing equal parts white vinegar and olive oil. Wipe onto the affected area of skin and let sit for several minutes. Wash off with water and unscented soap.
Don’t forget… Scent is the most powerful memory trigger.
