The Right Places to Spray Fragrance, According to Experts

Make a statement with your scent by spraying it where you want to broadcast yourself. For long-lasting fragrances that can carry throughout the day, like colognes or eau de toilette we all desire statements from our perfumes as well-especially behind the ears at the base of the throat, and on the wrist among other places too! 

The next time you want to make a lasting impression, apply your favorite Fragrance at the right points. A lot of people think that they need only spritz their neck and call it good when there are so many more areas worth spraying away those odors with some beautiful scent! Let me break down all the ways, this guidance will be helpful for you.

NECK POINT

You can’t go wrong with a little perfume for your neck! To make sure you smell good all day long, try wearing an empty necklace or wristband filled up with the fragrance of your choice. These accessories are specially made to carry scents and leave them on the skin so that they stay around longer.

BEHIND YOUR EAR

The pulse point behind your ears is often forgotten when applying perfume. We tend to focus on the fragrance around our neck and chest, but the reality is that the scent will be most concentrated where your pulse is strongest. And since the pulse point behind your ears is closer to your nose, it makes sense to apply your perfume there. It also helps to keep the fragrance from overwhelming your date. So next time you’re getting ready for a night out, remember to spritz a little perfume behind your ears. You’ll be amazed at how much more pleasant the experience is.

THE BASE OF YOUR THROAT

We all know that perfume is supposed to be applied to the neck, but did you know that the base of your throat is another great pulse point for fragrance? Perfume will smell extra strong in this area since it’s a pulse point, so if you want your fragrance to stand out, make sure to apply it here. Just be careful not to overdo it – a little goes a long way when it comes to perfume!

YOUR ELBOWS

Your pulse points are key to focus on when applying your perfume, as these areas emanate heat, which allows your fragrance to smell stronger. One pulse point you may be overlooking is the inside of your elbows. The soft skin on the inside of your elbows is full of blood vessels, which means it will emit more heat and make your perfume smell stronger. However, be careful not to apply too much perfume to this area, as it can be a sensitive spot for some people. When applying perfume to the back of your knees, use a light hand and only apply a small amount.

YOUR ANKLES

During the summer and spring months when your legs are more likely to be on display, you should mist a bit of perfume onto them. This will not only help with smelly feet but also make sure that people notice how beautiful they smell!

YOUR CLOTHES

Going out without spraying perfume on your clothes before can be a huge mistake! The fabric typically absorbs and sustains fragrance longer than the skin, so give yourself an all-over spritz to enjoy that fresh scent. Just make sure you avoid spraying silk because it stains easily with anything else.

YOUR WRISTS

The most common place to spray perfume is your wrist, but be mindful not to wash it away when you are done! Your Wrists aside from being a pulse point will help carry scent all day long. Just remember that if there’s any residue on them don’t rub or touch anything else because this could ruin its duration for yourself too much by transferring some onto what would otherwise just evaporate off naturally without effort!”

YOUR CHEST

If you find that your chest is getting too tempting and exposed, consider spraying perfume on it. This will not only help to cover up any possible shortcomings but also give off an all-over beautiful fragrance!

WALK INTO YOUR PERUME

As anyone who has ever stepped into a cloud of perfume can attest, the fragrance can be overwhelming. And yet, we often see people spraying perfume directly onto their clothes. Not only is this ineffective, but it can also be dangerous. When perfume is sprayed into the air, it quickly dissipates and becomes far less concentrated. As a result, you are much more likely to get a more consistent scent if you spritz the fragrance into the air and then walk into it. This will help to evenly distribute the perfume on your body, and you will be less likely to end up with a cloying scent that could cause headaches or nausea. So next time you reach for your favorite fragrance, remember to spritz, then walk into your perfume.

Right Method APPLY PERFUME

Just because there is quite a multitude of spots to spray perfume, that doesn’t mean it’s correct to spritz them all. Rather, you should pick a few to focus on depending on what you’re wearing and doing that day. If you hit all 9 spots, it’s likely your scent will end up being overwhelming. Try spritzing your neck, elbows, and knees or behind your ears, chest, and ankles to spread out your scent and make sure you smell good from head to toe. Again, don’t go overboard— too much of anything can be a bad thing! If you want your fragrance to last longer, layering might be the answer. 

Try using products with the same scent, like adding a perfume-infused lotion to your skin before spraying on the Eau de Parfum. This will help the fragrance last longer on your skin and smell more subtle throughout the day.
