How to fragrance yourself correctly…

Anyone can apply a fragrance but wearing fragrance well takes a little more finesse.

Did you know that your environment can effect whether your scent is correctly placed? A few simple tweaks can make all the difference so check out our top tips below to creating the perfect balance.

Spray – don’t rub!

Rubbing causes friction which heats up the skin – these enzymes then change the scent, so to preserve the integrity of your fragrance just spritz both wrists and let the fragrance work itself in – nothing additional required.

A great example for this type of fragrance is  – Angel Perfume Delicious raspberries topped with a gold-like hint of honey switch over to the notes of brittle jasmine and refreshing bergamot. What’s not to love?

Environment is key

Did you know the best place to store fragrance is the box it originally came in, and at room temperature (or 70 degrees).

If you want to go above and beyond, consider treating it like a great cellar wine – some people even keep theirs in the fridge depending on the scent.

Keep in mind perfume doesn’t like going from cold to hot.

Smaller is better

Keeping a half-used bottle on your shelf allows oxygento slowly break down the scent’s molecules, altering its composition.

The smaller bottles are more liable to keep fresh as you will often have them on the go for less months.

In addition to…

Perfume isn’t just for your skin. A fragrance doesn’t last long on dry skin, use it as a companion body lotion to your fragrance or an unscented moisturiser to prevent any olfactory interference.
