Dos & Don’ts for being Scent-sible

There are many ways to enjoy your favorite fragrances. Here are just a few Dos and Don’ts to get the most out of your fragrance every day.

Do enjoy your fragrance

Don’t save it for a special occasion. Fragrance will evaporate and change once it’s exposed to air. Every spray brings more air into the bottle. So enjoy it while it’s at its best.

Do keep fragrance away from extreme heat or cold

Extreme temperatures can alter the scent. Keep it fresh by storing in a cool dry place, away from the sun…which by the way is not your bathroom. An ideal place to keep your fragrance bottles is on a dresser or vanity in your bedroom away from the heat and moisture of the bathroom.

Do create a fragrance wardrobe

Different scents go with different seasons, occasions or moods. Choose a lighter scent in warmer weather and stronger scents when you’re bundled up in winter. Softer scents are great for a day at the office, and a sultrier scent for a night out. And your favorite scent can help uplift your mood or help you embrace your current feeling.

Do apply directly to skin, or don’t

When you apply directly to skin, focusing on pulse points, it allows your body heat to develop the fragrance for a true impression. An exception to this rule is if you find a scent that you love, that is not compatible with your chemistry. When the scent does not smell as good after it’s developed on your skin, apply away from pulse points or on your clothes instead to get the original scent.

Don’t spray too close to skin

To avoid dripping or too-heavy application, spray from 6 or 7 inches away. 

Don’t rub your wrists together when applying your fragrance

Rubbing actually “bruises” the fragrance notes and alters the scent.

Don’t limit your application to behind your ears or on your neck

Fragrance rises so aim for lower pulse points as well like the crook of the elbow or the back of the knees.

Don’t sample more than 3 scents at a time

After that your nose can get overloaded and you won’t get a true sense of the fragrance.  You can clear your palette so to speak by sniffing coffee beans if you want to continue sampling.

Don’t base your choice of personal fragrance on the scent right out of the bottle

Or how it smells on a friend. Fragrance is affected by our personal body chemistry so try some on, and wear it for a day so you can get a true sense of how it will react with your personal chemistry.

Do obey the arms length rule

Only those within arms length of you should be able to smell your fragrance. If your scent fills a room when you walk in, that’s too much. And it could be trigger someone’s allergies or asthma.

Do reapply throughout the day…

…after borrowing a friend’s nose.  Fragrance typically last 3-4 hours depending on what formula  you use and your personal chemistry. We do get used to our own scent after about an hour though so check with someone close to confirm that it really has faded before reapplying to avoid breaking the arms length rule. 

Don’t use deodorant soap

It can neutralize your fragrance.
