A Guide On Where To Spray Your Perfume
Smell good all day long by spraying your scent in all the right places.
When it comes to picking our perfume, our top priority is to make sure that its scent will linger all day long. Bringing a bottle everywhere for touchup spritzing can be a huge hassle, while spraying it on a million times can just leave you with a massive headache.
To make sure that you’ll smell amazing all day, spritz your scent in all the right places. Here’s a guide:
On your neck
Focus on the back of the ears, which considered a pulse point, or an area where blood-pumping veins are close to the skin. This area produces more body heat than the rest of the body, which can intensify your scent’s fragrance.
On your wrists
This is also a pulse point, so you’re sure that your skin will retain the fragrance longer.
Inside of elbows
Another pulse point or “hot spot.” Moisturize this area with lotion first before spraying on the scent to smell good all day long.
Behind the knees
This is the lower body counterpart of the folds of the elbows, as it also generates body heat that helps dispense scent particles.
Below your midriff
In her Into The Gloss interview, Liv Tyler shared that her dad, Aerosmith lead vocalist Steve Tyler, advised her to put on fragrance where the body heats up. Her tip: Spritz perfume on your arms and belly button.
On your ankles and calves
Don’t skip this area, especially if you’re wearing short skirts and dresses!
Arch of the back
Spray perfume at least five inches away from the nape down to arch of the back to diffuse the scent smoothly on the body.
Don’t spray the fragrance directly on your hair because the alcohol content could dry your strands. Instead, spritz some product onto your hairbrush before brushing your hair to evenly distribute the scent.
