The Science of Scents

Some essential infos we should know about scents/perfumes.

Where to apply scents or perfume on our body:

  • Spray it on your pulse areas. Body heat accentuates the scent.
  • Spray it behind your ears, at the base of your throat and at the temples.
  • Spray it inside the wrist and in the crook of the elbow.
  • Spray it behind the knees and on the inside of the ankles.
Take note that certain perfumes smell differently on one person to another. It's because a fragrance's scent can influence the skin chemistry, stress levels, diet, medication and most importantly, the body temperature of an individual.
It is more recommended to test a perfume on a skin rather than on a blotter. Just apply a light spray to the inner wrist, giving a few minutes before smelling it.

Try no more than 3 fragrances at any one time! Otherwise, your nose gets confused. Try one on each of your wrist and the 3rd one on your inner elbow.

Store perfumes in a cool, dry place, away from sunlight and heat. This is to avoid upsetting the balance of the oil which can change the scent. If you're switching scents with the seasons, store the off-duty bottle in the refrigerator's vegetable crisper.
