Proper way of applying perfume is to apply it on pulse points such as wrist, neck, crook of the elbow etc. Do not rub after applying perfume as it crushes the fragrance. You can enhance the effect of the perfume by simply spraying it in the air and walking into the perfume's mist and getting it diffused over your body.

The fragrance always rises up. So for full effect apply perfume from lower to upper regions of the body. Also consider wearing a small ball of perfume impregnated cotton wool on the body for optimum results.

Try to choose perfumes that suit you and not others. It is very important that your feel good factor should be increased and that you also feel extra special and pampered. Test a perfume in a store and then walk around for a minimum of ten minutes. Some perfumes take half an hour or an hour to truly develop and give out their true fragrance.

Fragrance compounds in perfumes will degrade or break down if improperly stored in the presence of:

  • Heat
  • Light
  • Oxygen
  • Extraneous organic materials

Proper preservation of perfumes involves keeping them away from sources of heat and storing them where they will not be exposed to light. An opened bottle will keep its aroma intact for several years, as long as it is well stored. However the presence of oxygen in the head space of the bottle and environmental factors will in the long run alter the smell of the fragrance.

Perfumes are best preserved when kept in light-tight aluminium bottles or in their original packaging when not in use, and refrigerated to relatively low temperatures: between 3-7 °C (37-45 °F). Although it is difficult to completely remove oxygen from the headspace of a stored flask of fragrance, opting for spray dispensers instead of rollers and "open" bottles will minimize oxygen exposure. Sprays also have the advantage of isolating fragrance inside a bottle and preventing it from mixing with dust, skin, and detritus, which would degrade and alter the quality of a perfume.
