Perfume has become an essential accessory in our daily lives. It is our cover letter, the scent of our personality and state of mind. Therefore, it is essential to make the right choice, since its smell will be present in the memories of those who inhale it. To find the ideal fragrance for you, you need to know how the olfactory pyramid works and the personality that each type of aroma evokes, both for men and women.
Apply perfume after shower
The skin absorbs the perfume better when it is clean and warm. The ideal is to shower with hot water so that the pores open and the fragrance penetrates better. In addition, it is advisable to use a bath gel or soap that has a very light aroma, so that it does not take away from the perfume. However, it is advisable to use a moisturizing cream or oil after bathing, as it will improve the receptivity of the woody perfume.
Spray the perfume on the skin
Applying perfume directly to clothing can leave marks and stain garments. The perfume is most potent on the ‘pulse points’, ie the areas of the knees, elbows, collarbone and neck. In addition, it must be applied at a distance of 10 centimeters from the skin.
Apply the perfume on the ‘pulse points’
The ‘pulse points’ are the areas where the blood vessels are close to the skin and therefore emit the most heat. As heat rises into the air, the fragrance intensifies when applied to these areas and tends to smell more. The most used points are the clavicles, the knees and the neckline.
The neck or collarbone area has many indentations, due to the bone structure, ideal for the perfume to rest and interact deeply with the skin. The area behind the knees also enhances the perfume as it is in constant movement and generates heat, as happens in the area inside the elbows.
Apply the perfume with light strokes
If the fragrance you want to recommend does not have a spray or atomizer, you should apply the perfume on the ‘pulse points’ and spread it by tapping. It can also be sprayed on the hands and impregnate the area through soft circular movements. A very common mistake is rubbing your wrists after putting on perfume, since doing so breaks the fragrance molecules and modifies its aroma.
