How To Wear Discount Perfume and Fragrance

Jun 14, 2008
So you purchased a new discount perfume but you don't know how to wear it properly. There are countless men and women who have been asking that same question about their fragrances. After much research on the subject of perfume application we have gathered some very valuable advice. We have come up with a list of common mistakes to avoid and helpful hints to use in making good use of of your favorite perfume.

1. It is a fact that men and women with dry skin don't retain scents as long as people with oily skin. This is due to the fact that oils in the skin join with the perfume oils thus making it a slower process of evaporation. Solution: reapply your preferred scent once or twice a day or use a good moisturizer before applying your fragrance.

2. If your favorite discount fragrance comes in a spray, you may want to squirt some on pulse areas from one foot away to get an even distribution. You could also spray it into the air 2 or 3 times, form a perfume cloud and "walk" right in.

3. Less is definitely more. Your discount womens fragrance should attract people to you, not the other way around. Discretion is the key regarding amount. If you are using a splash, moisten your fingertips and dab perfume lightly on your pulse areas. These are your wrists, dcollet (neckline in French), behind your earlobes and neck, on your chest, elbow area, behind your knees and in your inner thighs. Why these areas? Since blood is closer to the surface, skin is warmer causing the scent to be more rapidly diffused.

6. Be aware of the weather. On hot summer days, scents tend to last longer whereas cold weather has the exact opposite effect. So, vary the amount of perfume you wear with each season.

8. Many men and women are not conscious of the different scented body products they use - shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body lotion, deodorant, after shave balm, etc. - they use them all at once which causes a mess of smells. It is almost impossible for the perfume to really stand out or even last long when it's mixed with everything else. So, if you want to make your perfume or cologne last longer, then "layer it". Use body products scented preferably like your perfume or better yet products from the same brand. Start with a shower gel and then seal the scent with body lotion or after shave and finish by locking it all up with your favorite fragrance.

Now you know what to do, but it isn't everything if you don't know what NOT to do. Here are some pointers you should watch out for:

1. Don't perfume with clothes or jewelry on. Some discount fragrances do tend to stain cloth, metals and pearls, ruining your favorite apparel. Also, you are perfuming yourself, not your clothes.

2. Don't perfume ALL your pulse points. You might just over do it, so choose carefully. Madame Coco Chanel did say, "Put on perfume where you'd like to be kissed." Advice from an expert should never be ignored. Three sprays for Eau de Parfum or five sprays from Eau de Toilette perfumes should be more than enough.

3. Don't rub your wrists together when applying perfume in this area, since the scent does change considerably.

4. If you did all the right steps and you still don't smell like you want to, don't reapply your favorite scent. It is most likely that your olfactory glands are already used to the fragrance, therefore not recognizing it. Solution: Vary your scent from time to time. Expand your perfume wardrobe.

Now go out and show off your favorite fragrance.
