Top tips for wearing your scent well
1. Don’t over-spray!
The more you wear a perfume or fragrance, the more common the scent becomes to you and it can be harder for your nose to pick up the scent when you spray. This often leads to people spraying four or five times which is way too much! Stick to one or two sprays maximum for the perfect strength.
2. Rotate your scents
It’s a great idea to have two different scents to rotate between from time-to-time. That way you will maintain a great scent that is more noticeable to the people around you, as you keep changing it up. Be sure to keep two scents that make similar personal statements but give a good whiff of variation.
3. Spritz in the right spots
The best places on your body to spray perfume are on your neck, wrists and behind your ears. Your scent will last much longer and give an all day freshness.
