Have you ever wondered why the fragrance of your fav perfume seems to always disappear by noon? The answers may lie in the perfume’s ingredients. Some notes, including citrus and water ones, are more softer than others, causing them to evaporate from the skin more quickly. It’s also important to understand the general breakdown of your parfume and what the notes mean for your perfume’s application. Let us help you.
- Top Notes: The first scent you smell after spraying the perfume, which fades the fastest.
- Middle/Heart Notes: The scent that develops after the top note fades.
- Base Note: This is the heaviest scent that tends to linger the longest.
How and when you apply your fragrance:
To help get the most out of your scent, most perfumers agree that you should always spritz your fragrance directly onto the skin, rather than creating a mist, to ensure that you’re not wasting any product. You should also always apply your perfume immediately after getting out of the shower (when your pores are the most open) and spritz it directly onto your body’s pulse points, including your wrists, neck, inner elbows, and behind your ears. The warmth of these areas will help activate the notes and diffuse the fragrance across your entire body.
