Should I rub my skin after applying perfume?
It's not a horrible notion, but it should be thought about. Spread the alcohol-perfume mixture on your skin by rubbing it in. This increases the perfume's capacity to evaporate faster. Is that your intention?
Rubbing is the process of combining what is currently on your skin (for example, lotion). Mix the scent you just applied with a lotion. Rub your pulse points together to distribute the scent from one arm to the other. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it may hinder you from trying another perfume on the other arm.
Do you recommend changing perfumes with the seasons?
It is normal to alter your scent with the seasons. It is, however, up to you to decide what seems appropriate for you. Follow your intuition or do what comes naturally to you. We evolve in tandem with the seasons.
Perfume is an essential component of our being. Wearing heavy, oriental scents in the summer heat may be uncomfortable for some people. In the same situation, others like heavy or woody scents. Consider how much perfume you wear and when you wear it.
When the temperature drops on a sunny Spring evening, a warmer aroma will feel more natural. You can be inspired by the natural shifts in your environment by designing smells that combine fresh summer notes (citrus and lavender) with warming ingredients that aid in temperature reduction (e.g. wood, amber, ...).
With a Chypre note, this combination is conceivable. When the temperatures drop and layers of clothing are shed, people are drawn to the comforting and snug bouquets that surround them in the winter.
Look for scents with notes of fruits, hot spices, and delightful gourmet elements that are calming (vanilla, for example). Oriental accords are ideal for this time of year. When it comes to spring perfumes, we recommend selecting aromas that add a sense of energy and excitement to your day. Light floral overtones, green and herbal aromas, and scents that bring out the beauty of nature should inspire you.
Even if it's freezing outside, make sure your fragrance contains a warm base note like Oud, Sandalwood, or Patchouli.
Last but not least, there's summer! You should select notes that will brighten your day, delight your senses, and make you feel like you're on vacation. Consider magnificent floral bouquets with Roses and Jasmine on one hand, and gorgeous aquatic or delectably tropical fruity accords on the other. This is also an excellent moment to use Gourmand notes.
If you're not sure whether perfume is right for you, try different perfumes at different periods of the year.
How can I increase the diffusion of my perfume?
Spraying perfume on your hair will boost the strength and spread of the aroma. The surface area of your hair is quite huge. Your hair will diffuse more if it has a wider surface area. Typically, hair is slightly greasy.
As a result, scent is able to organically attach to hair fibers. Throughout the day, your hair moves. Air flow and diffusion are increased as a result of this. Because your body sheds heat through your scalp, your hair will always be heated. This allows your scent to warm up and provides for better dispersal. Spraying perfume on your hair can cause it to dry out.
