Do’s And Don’t Of Perfume


Apply the fragrance right after the shower moisturize the skin before applying your scent. According to experts, the best time to spray perfume on your skin is just after your shower. This is because moisture gives your scent something to hold on to. So spraying your signature scent on after your skin has been freshly washed boosts its staying power and will help you smell great all day long

Target the pulse points. These pulse points include; the base of the throat, the neck, behind the earlobes, behind the knees, in the cleavage, and warm areas on your body when spraying perfume. To make your scent last longer, choose a couple of target areas (not all of them at once).

Choose scent with calming properties learn about the notes in your fave scents. learn about the top notes, heart notes, and base notes of perfume when bought and the one to wear that is good for you.


Don’t spray your wrists and then rub them together. Rubbing the wrist together after applying fragrance, breaks down the fragrance molecules faster.

Don’t wear the perfume if it has changed its colour. Natural ingredients in fragrances are unstable. That’s how they create a scent actually; it’s because the molecules are breaking down and evaporating. That also means that natural ingredients in fragrances can often change colour over time and also even have different coloration during production.

Don’t store your fragrances in the bathroom. Take those perfumes out of the bathroom, extreme fluctuations in temperature will rapidly spoil your scents, so bottles on bathroom counters or in bathroom cupboards are likely to spoil much faster than perfumes stored in other spaces.

Don’t rush into making a decision. To sample the true scent of the fragrance you are testing. Wait until it has dried on your skin before smelling. The first scent you smell is the top note, which disappears after a few minutes anyways.

Don’t expose fragrance to high temperatures (either high heat or freezing cold) or strong, direct sunlight. The precious ingredients will oxidize and “turn” color and also change the scent itself. Keep your fragrance in a dry, shaded area and preferably not in the bathroom.

• Don’t wear conflicting deodorant soaps, scented gels, lotions or creams and then expect your expensive favorite scent to last all day. Many personal care products have a high concentration of strong fruity, floral or spicy chemicals and will overpower your beautiful scents.

• People with dry skin will need to moisturize or hydrate their skin, so try wearing unscented almond oils or moisturizing creams so that skin is moisturized and your fragrance will cling to your skin and therefore last longer.
