Ways of Using Perfumes

The word ‘perfume’ comes from the Latin words per fume ‘through smoke’. We all know that the purpose of wearing a perfume is to make one more appealing and attractive. However, we often meet people who wear their scents as if they have bathed in it. When the scent is too overpowering it can cause reactions like allergy, nausea or headache to those who inhale it. If our Perfumes are making those around us uncomfortable and sick we fail miserably in the purpose of wearing the perfume itself. Perfumes or Fragrances should be normally worn on pulse points in small quantities and not sprayed on clothes or used in huge quantities. Because of their power to elicit specific responses in the body and psyche, perfumes have been used in many religious rituals such as cleansing ceremonies. Perfumes also are used as ingredients for cosmetics, incense sticks, balms and ointments etc.

Apart from this normal usage, there are many other ways to use perfumes. if you are like me then you too may have many bottles of perfumes unused or sparingly used you may throw it away or give off to some one after some time. However, the good news is that these perfumes can be used too.

1) A tiny drop of perfume of bathing water can make you smell fresh and fragrant.

2) Keep finished bottles of perfume with its lid open on cloth shelves for nice smelling clothes.

    I like these creative suggestions, thank you. There's a perfume I like which unfortunately makes me sneeze if I wear it, it's okay if left in a clothes drawer. Will give some of the other ideas a go.
