Perfumes can make you appear more manly, feminine, sophisticated, or appealing depending on how they smell.

They have therapeutic benefits and help us in releasing stress hormones out of the body and helps in relaxing our mind and body acting as an aphrodisiac.

Many perfumes can work as aromatherapy. Odors of winter spices, citrus, flowers and others can relax you and lower your level of stress. It comes as no surprise that a good fragrance can ward off body odor and sometimes also enhance your natural body odors.

Anything used in moderation is beneficial and so to be the best, use the best fragrance that suits your personality.

Its nothing new that most times, we are focused on our wrists, ears and neck while applying perfume. Although you may not have been doing it wrong, but you might have been missing some key spots. So today we will help guide you on how to use your perfume effectively.

 

1.Your hair

One of the best place to spritz perfume is your hair. The hair strands holds fragrance well and leave a trail of scent as you move from place to place.

 

2. Inside your elbow

We don’t need to be told that these hidden spots emit heat, which helps fragrance develop faster. Most people focus only on their clothes, however, the inside of the elbows is also a hot spot to roll on perfume.

 

3. Behind your ears

Like your wrists, the areas behind your ears are considered “pulse points,” where the veins are closest to the skin, thus generating more heat and amplifying your scent. Dabbing your fragrance on these points will give you more immediate results.

 

4. Inside your belly button

Your navel is useful for more than just belly piercings. Dab a few drops of perfume on the spot mostly when you are wearing a crop top.

 

5. Behind your knee

The soft area behind your knees is another one of those pulse points perfect for perfume. Throughout the day the scent will kick up as you cross your legs and move around.

 

6. On your clothes

Applying your scent on your body before putting on your clothes is great so that the fragrance can absorb into your skin. The typical places to spritz scent all fall under this category: the neck, wrists, cleavage. However, spritzing your clothes with fragrance can help achieve a longer lasting scent, too.
