How to apply perfume correctly

Perfume can be a potent means of self-expression and leaving a lasting impression. To achieve the desired effect, it's important to apply it correctly. Choosing the right location is the first step, with areas where circulation is good and skin is warm being the best. However, this alone may not be sufficient.

Applying perfume directly after showering may not result in a long-lasting scent, as showering washes off sebum, which is the body's natural moisturizer. Before applying fragrance, using unscented body lotion or plant oil may be helpful. Waiting a few hours after showering, when the skin has produced sufficient sebum, may be even more beneficial for optimal fragrance retention.

Interestingly, those who live in areas with limited access to water often exhibit superior perfume performance, as they bathe less frequently. Certain areas of the body, such as the upper neck, behind the ears, middle of the chest, and armpits, have higher sebum production, making them ideal perfume application spots. These factors should be taken into account when applying perfume.
