How to Apply Cologne and Perfume

December 29, 2009 at 12:01 am 1 comment

Perfume and cologne should be applied to pulse points (wrists, base of the throat, inside of the elbow or knee). These are places where blood vessels are closest to the skin; therefore, your skin warms the perfume and causes it to gradually release its fragrance over time.

Rubbing your wrists together will also speed the release of the fragrance, but experts say this bruises the fragrance and diminishes its endurance. Putting cologne on the pulse points should negate the need to rub your wrists together anyway.

Perfume and cologne usually contain alcohol which helps the fragrance evaporate so others can smell it. The warming property of your pulse points assist with the evaporation.

    Also, if you can smell it, it’s too strong! Your nose adapts to fragrance quickly so the scent should be very faint after a few minutes. Also, if you’re using a store-bought perfume or cologne, keep your mouth closed when spraying so that you don’ t inhale the chemicals.
