We all want our perfume to have staying power. Here are the do’s and don’ts to making that happen.
Do: Spray your pressure points, which includes your inner wrists and the inner side of your neck.
Don’t: Spray your clothes. Your skin holds on to scents much longer than any fabric.
Do: Spritz your chest by holding the perfume at least a foot away from your body. This will allow the fragrance to spread over time.
Don’t: Spray your secret parts. Alcohol, found in most fragrances, will only dry and irritate skin.
Do: Splash a bit of perfume behind your knees to allow the fragrance to rise.
