Where to Wear?

Most people spray their fragrances at the pulse points: wrists, neck, behind the ears. There is nothing wrong with this.
However, to create a more lasting scent, perfume experts advise spritzing a little on your hair or clothes (unless they’re silk! Heaven forbid you spray anything onto silk). This gives your scent a little added staying-power - and whenever you flick your hair à la L’Oréal your closest admirers will be rewarded with an intoxicating whiff. Perfect.

For proper perfumes - that is to say, pure oils or those expensive >40% perfume creations that we mentioned earlier - the experts warn you not to put them on your pulse points. The extra heat from your body that pulse points enjoy can alter the chemical make-up of the perfume and change the smell. They suggest putting it somewhere between your wrist and elbow, on your décolletage (well, if you insist!) and, for the warmer summer months, near your knees when skirts/dresses allow. Odd, but true. Perhaps people can smell it when you sit down….

Of course, it’s all personal preference. If you like wearing lots of fragrance, then chances are you’ll put it anywhere and everywhere. Which is fine - although we’d recommend steering clear of very expensive scents, as you’ll go through bottles at a rate of knots.
If you’re a minimalist (and sometimes this is for the better) then this is also fine. You’ll get your use out of even the most expensive scents, and the stronger oil concentrations will make your dainty dabs pack a powerful punch - so why not splash out?
