Open the bottle and drench in it. Easy. Breezy. Beautiful! But how do you make sure the perfume lasts long? Answer: By knowing where to spray. Pulse points, hot points or whatever the hell you may call them, are ass-savers in ensuring the whiff lasts all day.
To smell as fresh as the morning, even at noon, or actually…at 9 pm too, here’s exactly where to spray your expensive, bottled perfection today.
1. Your Hair
Surprised? Don’t be. Your mane is a lesser-known but one of the most effective places to spray upon. Reason being, hair fibers leech onto the fragrance of the perfume and walk it along for a long period of time.
While you’d be tempted to spray directly on the strands, don’t. You’d dry them out. Instead, spray onto your hairbrush and let the fragrance gush in while you comb.
2. The Neck
The area around your neck is comparatively warmer than the rest. Result? It classifies as a pulse point that’s dear to your bottle. Besides ensuring the odour lasts for long, your perfume’s use on the neck will strengthen its fragrance even more.
3. Inside The Elbows
In case you represent a fragrant-cuckoo, here’s a lesson: the skin on your elbows runs close to the veins. Jackpot? That makes the area a treasure to spray your perfume upon. Go go, dig that scent in.
4. On The Chest
You don’t need a buff chest, nor a John Abraham pump. All you need is your a perfume, a goddamn chest and the ability of spraying from a distance of 6-9 inches. Just trap the odour in the space between your body and clothes, to achieve eau de toilette excellence.
5. On Top Of Your Ears
Here’s the base line: when it comes to holding onto the scent of your perfume, oily skin works best. But wait, what if you have dry skin? Don’t quiver. The skin on top of your ear is oily enough anyway. Spray straight.
6. On The Pulse Point Of Your Wrist
You’re probably aware of this, and even practice it quite often. But know what makes this an ideal point to spray upon? Your blood vessels! Since they’re run quite close to the surface of your skin, they emanate heat to enhance the odour of your perfume. Plus, application on the wrist also keeps the odour fresh for long.
7. On Your Clothes
While a spray directly on the skin is best-recommended, fabrics like wool and cashmere encapsulate the odour of the spritz. So, don’t hold yourself in spraying all over your clothes! However, yes—this does require re-application more often than you think.
