Apart from applying perfumes on your wrist, clothes, etc, did you also know you can apply it to other parts of your body? Forget the wrists, ears, and necks that are on the usual to-do list when you spritz on your favorite fragrance; there are key hot spots that will help grip your scent longer than you are missing.
1. In Your Belly Button
Your navel is useful for more than just belly piercings. Dab a few drops of perfume on the spot if you’re wearing a midriff-baring crop top or bikini. “Any area on your body that radiates heat will enhance a scent, and your belly button does just that,” says Claisse.
2. Behind Your Knees
The soft area behind your knees is another one of those pulse points perfect for perfume. Throughout the day the scent will kick up as you cross your legs and move around, especially if you’re wearing a dress. “Knees are great for summer since they’re exposed,” says Claisse. “The back of knees are warmer and softer and therefore capture a strong scent.”
3. Down Your Calves
If you’re wearing shorts or a leg-revealing dress, spritz fragrance along the inside of your thighs and calves. The friction between your legs as you walk will create warmth and reinvigorate the scent throughout the day.
4. On Your Ankles
Before you slip on your favorite pair of stiletto heels, give your feet a blast of perfume. “Your ankles are always in motion, so it helps project the fragrance wherever you go,”. “It continues the scent from head to toe.”
5. In Your Hair
Your hair is one of the best places to spritz perfume because the strands hold fragrance well and leave a trail of scent as you move from place to place. “Fragrances latch onto hair fibers, therefore hair will carry the scent of the fragrance for a long period,” says Claisse. But will the alcohol in perfume dry out your hair? “The alcohol in fragrance is similar to that in certain hair sprays which do tend to dry out the hair,” explains Claisse. “To avoid any drying of the hair, the best way to apply fragrance to hair is to mist on a brush.” There are also scents made specifically for hair.
