Many women don’t realize this, but their scent has a lasting impact on how others perceive them. In fact, many people associate you with what you smell like. It’s true that your smell affects your look and style almost as much as what you’re actually wearing.
This means that if you’d like to improve your style, simply improving your scent can go a long way. If you have no idea what scents to wear, how to wear perfumes or how much to put on at one time, here are some tips for doing just that.
- Know the terminology.
There are several words that are used commonly in the fragrance industry. Perfume is the most potent type of fragrance. Eau de toilette is the next most potent, and body spray is the least potent and has the most water added to it.
- Use potent scents as much as possible.
Keep in mind that more potent scents will last longer and smell better.
- Layer different fragrances.
You will want to have one signature fragrance, but you can also layer different types of fragrances as well. For example, put lotion everywhere on your body, use a fragrant deodorant and apply perfume.
- Put your scents in the right spots.
As a rule, people put fragrance on their pulse points. This is where you can feel your pulse if you touch your skin. Your neck, the backs of your knees and the insides of your wrists are good places to put perfume or cologne.
- Choose the right scents.
Finally, keep in mind that not all perfumes and colognes are the same. In other words, if it’s cheaper and in a plastic bottle, it probably won’t last very long, and it probably won’t smell very good. This doesn’t mean that you always have to purchase perfumes and colognes that are extremely expensive, but don’t get the cheapest thing on the market.
Use these tips to give yourself a sweeter scent. You won’t be sorry, and your friends and family will thank you for it too!
