A question I'm often asked - how should I wear
perfume so that it lasts?
Perfume is best worn in layers.
rub perfume on, this breaks the delicate
fragrance bonds, so the perfume will come on
strong very quickly, but go away very quickly as
The best way to wear perfume is to spray a
cloud and walk into it so that it shrouds you
like a cloak.
Your hair is very good for trapping scent and
has less chemical interaction than your skin! Also
layering helps, so drop a few drops in your
bath, wear a complimenting body spray, then a
cloud of your best perfume, and to complete the
outfit a few dabs (no rubs) on pulse points
(wrists, neck, ears). And of course the stronger
the perfume the better it will last, so use the
best you can afford.
After a while you will become accustomed to
your own scent. You can, in a manner, 'reset'
your senses by sniffing something very
different, coffee beans for example, or the
perfumer's trick is to bury your nose in your
elbow - providing you haven't sprayed scent
there, of course!
