Do’s and Don’ts of using Perfumes

How to use Perfumes in the correct manner? Here are some Do’s and Don’ts of using Perfumes.

1) Not every Perfume would suit everybody. One has to select scents that best suit your body chemistry and the effect they’d like to have on another individual. Choose a perfume that suits your personality and the image you want to portray.

2) Do not use too much Perfume. A small dab of perfume on wrists, behind ears, in the inner part of elbows and knees and on a neck near the collar-bone would be sufficient. Another way of keeping your fragrance subtle is by spraying in the air and stepping through it. If you do not want the original scent affected by the perspiration and musk of the individual you can spray the perfume over the hair.

3) Use Shampoos, lotions and powders etc which compliments with your perfume. In other words, the perfume should be used with unscented products or the same scented products for best results.

4) Usage of Vaseline or oily creams can help the fragrances to stay long.

5) There are different fragrances for different times. Perfumes suitable for day usage may not be suitable perfumes for the night out. Similarly, Summer Perfumes may not be suitable during the winter months. Also there are a different set of options in perfumes for men and women.

6) Use subtle scents in places like office or crowded places as heavy scents can be quite overpowering and can cause reactions like allergy attacks, headache and nausea in some people.

7) Invest on quality perfumes.

8) Wear your Perfume before you wear your jewelry.

Remember that the purpose of a perfume is to make you more appealing. But if your perfume is making others ill or uncomfortable, then it is failing miserably for its intended purpose. So choose your fragrance well and use it in the proper manner to get the desired effect you want.
