The best time to switch up your scent is when the seasons are changing.  Landscapes look different, temps change and your wardrobe changes with it, why shouldn’t your scent.  A great signature fragrance is a great way to send a subtle message.  Nothing better than talking to someone who smells amazing, am I right?!?!?

The Fragrance Foundation is passionately devoted to engaging the consumer, works to increase awareness and appreciation of fragrance in all forms by focusing on strategic initiatives and enjoyment of fragrance.

Here are 7 Tips from the pros:

  1.  Apply perfume on your pulse points – ears, wrists and neck, in the hollow of your arms or behind your knees.
  2. Moisturizing is key to making your fragrances last longer.  When your skin is dry, your fragrance tends to evaporate faster.
  3. Don’t rub after you apply it – it makes the top notes dissipate faster.
  4. Always remember, what smells good on you might smell slightly different on someone else.  Fragrance is great because its unique to you.
  5. Don’t be afraid to experiment – wear different fragrances on different parts of your body to create your own signature.
  6. For the best results, apply fragrance immediately after you shower to ensure that the fragrances absorb directly into your skin.
