How to properly use Perfumes?

Perfume is more than just a fragrance; it is an expression of one's personality and style. However, using perfume incorrectly can diminish its impact and longevity. To help you make the most of your favorite scent, here are some expert tips on how to properly use perfume.


1. Apply perfume to the wrists and inside elbows

Wrists have blood vessels closer to the skin's surface, generating heat and intensifying the fragrance. Apply perfume to the wrists and inside the elbows, for better projection and longer-lasting scent.

2. Don't rub your wrists together

Contrary to popular belief, rubbing your wrists together after applying perfume can actually alter the scent. The friction and heat generated by rubbing can break down the fragrance molecules, leading to a shorter lifespan. Instead, let the perfume dry naturally on your skin.

3. Store perfume properly

Proper storage is crucial to maintain the quality of your perfume. Keep it away from direct sunlight, extreme temperatures, and humidity. Store it in a cool, dark place, such as a drawer or cabinet, to preserve its fragrance and prevent degradation.

4. Apply perfume to your clothes

Apply perfume on your clothes to stretch the longevity of the fragrance even more. Apply the perfume at a distance of 4 - 6 inches from your clothes. Our perfumes never stains, so splash some on your clothes. 

5. Know when to reapply

The longevity of a perfume varies depending on its concentration and your body chemistry. For a good performance, you can reapply our perfumes every 6 - 8 hours to maintain its intensity. However, be mindful not to overdo it, as an overpowering scent can be off-putting. 

6. Consider the occasion

Choose your perfume based on the occasion and environment. Opt for lighter, fresher scents like Marina Vibes for daytime or office settings, and save the stronger, more intense fragrances like Oudh Pinnacle for evenings or special events. Adapting your perfume to the occasion shows thoughtfulness and enhances your overall presence.

7. Trust your instincts

Ultimately, the most important aspect of using perfume is to trust your instincts and wear what makes you feel confident and comfortable. Perfume is a personal choice, and finding the right scent that resonates with you is a journey of self-expression and discovery.

By following these expert tips on how to properly use perfume, you can enhance your fragrance experience and make a lasting impression wherever you go.
