Most times we apply perfumes but don’t fully enjoy the full effect of it and that’s because we’ve been applying it wrongly the whole time.

Below are places to apply your perfume on your body so that they can last the whole day:

1. Hair

Do NOT spray perfume directly to your hair as it will dry the hair out, apply or spritz the perfume to your hair brush and use it on your hair or pray the perfume in the air and use your hair to collect the particles.

2. Behind your ears

The areas behind your ears are considered as “pulse points”, meaning places like that generate heat thereby amplifying the scent. Spraying your perfume at points like that gives it immediate results.

3. Down your back

Experts say:

Pull the collar of your top back, and put a blast down your back between clothing and skin. If it’s a light fragrance, do it twice. Your natural movements through the air will diffuse the scent more subtly, it won’t be right in front of you—or people you’re with—all day so you won’t fatigue to your own perfume as fast, and it will seem more a part of you.

4. Inside your elbows

This is also another pulse point. To maximize the effect of the fragrance, moisturize your arm before applying your perfume.

5. Behind your knees

Another pulse point, spritzing your perfume here makes the scent evaporate throughout the day.

6. Belly button

Best way to do it is to put a little drop on your fingers and gently rub it on your belly button.
