How to apply perfume:
Too much and people are gagging. To little and what's the point? Applying perfume is about putting on the right amounts in the correct places and creating a lasting impression. Learn how to put on perfume the right way.
1.Apply perfume to your wrists, the base of your throat, behind your earlobes, the creases of your elbows and between your breasts. These are merely the correct places to put on perfume. These are pulse points.
2.Lightly spray no more than three of these places with your perfume. A little goes along way.
3.Keep your skin moisturized. Perfume definitely lasts longer on oily skin than dry skin. For those of you with dry skin try putting on a little lotion before applying perfume.
4.Apply perfume to your hair only when it has been freshly washed. Other hair products will taint the scent so keep that in mind when applying .
5.Apply perfume to skin. Perfume can stain clothes.
6.Don't mix fragrances. Only use one scent at a time.
7.Apply perfume to the back of the knees. The heat in the creases of your knees creates a rising affect for the perfume. This way, your perfume is sure to last a little longer on your body.
