WHERE TO APPLY PERFUME AND WHERE TO AVOID
Fragrance is the most playful and intoxicating aspect of your care routine, as scent unleashes sensuality and defines your scent identity. Yet, there’s an art to wear a cologne.
Wearing perfumes seems easy peasy – a little spritz and you’re out the door, but it well requires some tiny skill and finesse.
Ahead, there are keys to apply perfume correctly rooted on tried and true techniques, and some facts to avoid to maintain the integrity of your scent.
Don’t rub it, just spray it
This is the most notorious and most commonplace mistake that often happened unconsciously. It comes from oil perfumes that don’t apply with a sprayer. Rubbing make the oil thinner on the skin and let it fly easier with the assist of body heat.
The truth is you don’t need to and shouldn’t rub a sprayed perfume. Spray means the perfume is diluted by alcohol and the alcohol spreads the scent even without the need for body heat. So when you rub an alcohol-based perfume you spoil the most impacted layer – the top layer – by adding extra heat and body chemistry into it and the perfume loses its crispness.
Don’t use your head, use your hair
A common habit of wearing a perfume often used by ladies is to spray the scent on the head. Be cautious that perfume includes alcohol and alcohol can break the natural and necessary oily texture of head skin. Moreover, the head skin has a distinctive fatty smell that mixed with perfume does not bring the best result to you.
We suggest spraying the perfume to the end of your hair strings – if you own long hair preferably. There is no fatty texture at the tip of the hair. Also, hair waves and let the scent whip the air. It brings the laziest perfumes a brilliant sillage.
