How to apply your perfume the right way

Do not rub your wrists together after applying perfume.

Rubbing perfume into your skin causes the perfume’s top notes to fade and evaporate before they can settle into your skin’s natural oils. This means the notes that made you like the perfume, to begin with, never truly translate onto your skin.

Do spray your perfume onto your pulse points.

Pulse points are areas where your veins sit closest to your skin, where you can feel your pulse (quite literally), like the inside of your wrists, inner elbows, below your belly button, behind your ear lobes, and the back of your knees. These points on your body emit extra body heat, which helps in naturally diffusing the perfume.  Spritz or dab the perfume (don’t rub) on a few or all of them, and your fragrance will last longer than usual.

Do store your perfume away from light, humidity, and heat.

Storing your fragrance in a place with moisture and heat, say your washroom, can change the perfume’s composition. Moreover, any form of light (especially sunlight) can break down a perfume’s formulation, cutting down its shelf life. Store your favourite perfume inside a bedroom dresser or vanity drawer—or simply, inside the box your fragrance came in. Most of these were made to keep your perfume happy and safe for a long time. 

Do spray your perfume onto your clothes

Perfumes behave differently on the skin than they do on fabrics. They can last much longer on fabrics, depending on the type of fabric. But, be careful before you spray perfume on your clothes, do not spray on fabrics like silk to avoid staining. We suggest spraying the perfume 5-7 inches away from clothes to avoid stains. 

Do apply perfume post-shower for best results.

Your skin absorbs perfume better when it’s warm, and the pores are open, like just after a shower.  So it’s a good idea to apply your perfume post-shower when the skin is dry but still a tad warm.
