You would think that putting on perfume would be the most non-complex part of your beauty routine, but it may be more complicated than you think! Are you committing any of these perfume crimes? If so here is how to fix them:
Mistake #1: Rubbing Your Wrists Together
This may be limiting the length of time your scent lasts. There are 3 notes that make up a fragrance, and are also what holds it’s scent. When you rub your wrists together, the friction and heat burn through the top and middle note, making your perfume spritz a complete waste of time.
Mistake #2: You Only Put It On Your Wrists
Body heat is the main activator of perfume, therefore applying it to pulse points are your best options. Try applying it to your wrists, neck, behind your knees, ankles, and chest. Remember pick your placement wisely, and don’t overdo it. Try 2 -3 places AT MOST!
Application to your clothes and hair is okay as well, but not ideal as the fragrance won’t be projected as much without your body heat.
Mistake #3: Moisturize Before Your Apply
If your looking to have that all night scent, moisturize before spritzing! Moisturized skin clings to a fragrance much longer. For best results try applying a lotion with the same scent as your perfume, or an unscented moisturizer.
Mistake #4: You Leave the Bottle Out on Your Vanity
As pretty as your bottle may seem, fragrances last the longest in the refrigerator. Though keeping your scents next to your fruits and veggies may gross you out, it is the best storage option for them. The alternative to is keep them in a dark, cool environment as far away from direct sunlight and heat. The heat from the sun will break down the fragrance faster, and can even change the way it smells! GROSS!
Mistake #5: You Stole Your Friend’s Fragrance
So you just love the way it smells on her right, and you don’t mind being called a copy cat? Well just remember that the way it smells on here is going to be different from how it smells on you. Your body’s chemistry is unique to you and it completes the outcome of the fragrance once its applied. A best practice is to try it out before you run out and buy it!
