Where to Apply Perfume & How to Make it Last

Perfume disperses when the heat from our body encourages it to lift into the air.


Pressure points hold heat, which warms the perfume and causes it to evaporate.


Applying perfume to your wrists, behind your ears, on your décolletage, behind your knees, and around your ankles will surround you with your signature scent.

Your silky locks also hold scent well so every time your hair sways, the fragrance will be released.

You can encourage your scent to last longer on your body by doing a couple things:

  • Moisturize - If your skin has a layer of oil or moisturizer on it, the perfume will sit on the skin as opposed to sinking in.

  • Store it properly - The molecules in perfume are affected by heat and light, so it is best to keep it in a cool place away from direct sunlight. This will protect the compounds from breaking down, thus preserving the scent and its strength.

  • Savor it - Once you apply your perfume, take a moment to inhale and savor the scent. It will forever remind you of that time in your life.
