Remember to apply just a touch (these perfumes contain no alcohol, so you won’t need much) to a pulse-point area (typically inside your wrist or elbow or base of throat) and allow the heat of your skin to develop and open up the scent, usually just a few minutes. So anywhere you may be trying out a new scent (in person), you can be sure you will like it…or maybe not!
Skin type will affect the way a fragrance ultimately smells. With more oily skin, fragrances interact with the oils in your skin to create a more intense scent. Dry skin doesn’t always retain fragrance for as long as oily skin, requiring the wearer to re-apply it a bit more often, and/or add the scent to your lotion or cream or body oil to layer the scent more firmly.
