Here are a few tips to help you find what you are looking for:
Delicate, fresh, indulgent, intense... Pick the scent that best reflects your unique style!
Where to apply it
The best place is to apply your fragrance is on your pulse points: the neck, the inside of your elbows and knees, your wrists or behind your ears, as the mood strikes you. These are the areas of your body with the greatest concentration of heat, so the fragrance will be diffused most quickly. If you're using a mister, keep the bottle 10 to 15 cm away from your body, depending on the intensity desired. Avoid rubbing your wrists together after application; it will break up the fragrance molecules, distorting their olfactory qualities.
How to make it last
The secret to making your fragrance last: apply a body moisturizer first so the fragrance has a base it can adhere to. You can also apply a few drops to your accessories, like your scarf or belt. Or try it on your hairbrush. The porous nature of hair helps trap the scent, releasing it throughout the day. A word to the wise: avoid applying fragrances to synthetic fabrics, which will change the scent of your fragrance; or to silk, which can be easily and irreversibly stained.
How to conserve it
Generally speaking, fragrance can be kept for one to three years after opening. Depending on the quality of your fragrance, its life can be extended by protecting it from its worst enemies: light, heat, air and humidity.
