Applying Perfume to Pulse Points is Not Always Effective

Most people apply perfume to their pulse points: neck, wrist, behind the ears and cleavage. Some say behind the knees and the bend at your elbows are also good spots. However, these are not the most effective way to preserve the fragrance and prevent it from wearing off over time. A technique called layering is the best method to make the scent last longer. The process involves using products from the same fragrance line to:

1. Maintain its natural fragrance
2. Create a fuller and long-lasting scent

An example of layering perfume might start with a body wash or bath/shower gel, then put on matching body lotion/cream or body spray afterwards. At last, apply perfume or eau de parfum from the same set. Make sure scents from different product lines are not combined.

If you have fair and/or dry skin, you will need to reapply the perfume more often than those with dark and oily skin. Also note that perfume scent lasts longer when it’s hot, and less during cold weather. You should also vary the fragrance you use from time to time because it is medically proven that scents effects emotions. Perhaps you can try a new scent every season. Be sure to store your perfume in its original container and tightly sealed. It’s also a good idea to store it in the fridge between uses. It delays the oxidation process and helps to preserve the scent.
