By Erin Richardson For many people who enjoy getting away…
Have full-body awareness. Although a good mission in all areas of life, both professional and personal, we also argue that it’s a smart way to operate when it comes to fragrance as well.
Considering modern-day scent-wearing traditions, perfume is typically applied delicately to the body’s pulse points: the wrists and a demure dab behind the ears.
Don’t stop there though. Pulse points, the areas of the body with the most veins closely beneath the skin, generate warmth. Make that heat work for you—after all, it will intensify your fragrance.
Move beyond the wrists and neck. Mist your body’s other pulse points too: behind your knees, your ankles, the inside of the elbows, your waist and the small of your back, the nape of your neck and of course, your cleavage.
Spritz lightly of course—we’re not saying you should bathe in your eau de parfum—and then get dressed. By scenting yourself top to bottom, you should also boost the staying power of your fragrance.
