Silhouette Scents THE ART OF FRAGRANCE Fine Fragrance Generics


Interesting facts about perfume.


How to Apply Perfume Properly.

Apply perfume to bare skin-do not apply to clothing. Spray or dab a little perfume on each of your pulse points-your wrists, between breasts, behind the knees, behind the ears and in the bends of the elbows. Spray a little perfume in freshly washed hair by spritzing in the air and walking through the fine mist.

Be careful not to over-apply your perfume. Check with a family member or trusted friend if you can't tell whether you've overdone it. Don't rub your wrists together after you have applied perfume-it will crush the delicate scent. Rub the oil onto pulse points for a more quickly-diffusing effect, or apply it to non-pulse points to keep the fragrance on the skin longer. Make sure to apply perfume not just to your neck; apply your fragrance from bottom to top, spraying at the ankles to allow the scent to rise and conquer.

Making Fragrance Last Longer...

A scent will fade faster when skin is dry. Applying petroleum jelly or fragrance-free moisturiser is an excellent preparation for applying fragrance.

Layering products from the same fragrance is another effective way to make a fragrance last. You might use the scented body lotion, and then spray the eau de parfum on top or you may prefer to have a relaxing bath with bath salts or soap in the same fragrance. The combination of products will help the scent to maintain fullness and extend throughout the day.
