Tips for Buying Perfume.
- Perfume shop during the midday. Your senses are the sharpest at this time of day. Also, never shop with any perfumes/lotions on your body already.
- Have you ever smelled so many perfumes your head just becomes one big perfume bottle? You can clear your head by using coffee beans.
- When testing scents on your body always allow 15 minutes for your scent to truly develop before purchasing.
How to apply your fragrance.
- Let it develop... Spray your perfume 5-7 inches away from your body. Once it develops and releases the top notes after a few minutes you can spray again if it's not strong enough. If your body is getting wet from your perfume you are spraying to close.
- If you want a light scent and nothing too heavy, spray the air in front of you and walk through to lightly coat your skin and clothes.
- Spray your pulse points. (behind the ears and knees, on your wrists, etc) Do not rub your wrists together, this will cause your perfume to dissolve and disappear.
- Accidentally spray on to much? Use unscented hand sanitizer to lessen the scent, unscented lotion will work too. If all else fails, just take a shower!
Storing How to & Tips.
A perfume can stay fresh and strong (with true notes) anywhere from 1-8 years. Here are some tips to keeping it like the day you bought and loved it.
- Never keep your perfume in your bathroom! Humidity can alter a scent quickly.
- The best place is somewhere dark, even the refrigerator. Yes! The refrigerator! It can lengthen a perfume by 50%. Just keep away from the butter and foods that like to absorb scents otherwise you may be eating scented butter. ;)
- Not open to the fridge? Me either! Another good place would be your bedroom, away from windows and lamps you use often.
