Tips in wearing perfume

Stay Fragrant and Fresh Slickly

Fragrances can often reflect our mood and personality. The perfume you wear can cause them to be attracted to you or, unfortunately, to run away from you! A certain scent on a good friend may smell quite differently on you as each fragrance reacts differently according to our own chemical makeup. Men and women similarly desire fragrances that keep you feeling and smelling fresh all day long.

The expensive form of fragrance with 22% of essential oils and has the highest concentration is Perfume or Parfum Classic. Eau de Parfum (EDP) comes next with between 15 and 22% essential oils. That's followed by Eau de Toilette (EDT) with 8 to 15% oils. The weaker Eau de Cologne has just 4% essential oils. For those who crave super subtlety Eau Fraiche with 1 to 3% essential oils is the lightest dilution of fragrance.

Cologne and deo lasts for only two hours; eau-de-perfume may last for as many as four to five hours; and perfumes can last up to more than six hours at length. These perfumes may come in the form of sticks, sprays, roll-ons, creams and more.

If you want to keep that favorite perfume as fresh as the day you bought it, keep the bottle in a cool, dark place. Keep the bottle tightly closed as well as far away from direct heat and sunlight because these can spoil the scent of your perfume. You will notice that more and more perfumes come either in blue or opaque bottles. They help to preserve perfumes.

People with oily skin tend to have stronger fragrance as compared to those with dry skin. Go for lighter scents during the hotter weather and keep the stronger scents for the drier, cool weather.

The best way to wear perfume is to apply perfume right after you shower. Your pores will be open and your skin will be warm. Then, dab some to pulse points such as the folds in the crook of your elbow and the back of you knees, wrist, neck and cleavage to make the fragrance lasts longer.

The next tip is spraying a small doze of perfume into the air and then you have to walk straight into the perfume. This helps to diffuse it over your body. Making your body drenched with perfume. Never apply perfume behind the ears. It can blend with skin secretions and create a strange smell when in contact with perspiration. Don’t rub wrists together as you see in ads. This practice crushes the smell. Also, don't spray perfume onto light-colored clothes because it can turn the fabric yellow.

Try to remember, that each perfume has not less than 3 notes and often it takes half an hour to truly develop. Use these tips to find that perfect perfume for you and start drawing people to you with your pleasant scent!
