The Best Places to Apply Perfume
Drom Fragrances Perfumer Kevin Verspoor Gives Tips on the Best Places to Apply Perfume
While most people spritz fragrance on their wrists and neck, there are many other great places on the body that women and men often neglect. According to Drom Fragrances perfumer Kevin Verspoor, the key is spraying areas of the body that have a good amount of veins and arteries that are under the skin. These help give warmth and projection to the fragrance.
Kevin’s suggestions for spraying…
· Back of the legs, specifically back of the knees
· In the area just above the hip bones
· Nape of the neck
· Cleavage for women, chest for men
· Small of the back just above the buttocks
· Inside of the elbows
How do you spray these areas without overloading?
Kevin suggests applying a lighter lotion of your preferred fragrance and then just add a couple sprays of the eau de toilette or eau de parfum. This can be accented by adding a couple dabs of the parfum on specific pulse points. A good thing to remember is that even though you may not smell your perfume all day, that does not mean others will not. Continuous application of one’s fragrance all day may make your positive fragrance experience a negative one for others. You don’t want to be the human air freshener.
Kevin says the best application level is if you can smell the fragrance you have on in soft occasional whiffs. If you can continuously smell your fragrance at all times and it is intense, you most likely have way too much on.
