Perfume is more than just an accessory; it's a reflection of your personal identity and a form of art in itself. Here are some essential tips to avoid common mistakes and make each application of perfume a page in your personal story.


1. Avoid Rubbing Perfume on the Skin


An often instinctive gesture after applying perfume is to rub the wrists together. However, this action is detrimental to the integrity of the fragrant notes. It creates friction that heats the skin, altering the composition of the notes, especially the top and heart notes.


We advise spraying the perfume on pulse points and allowing the alchemy to occur naturally. This allows the perfume to blend with your skin without disrupting its delicate structure, thus preserving the purity and longevity of the fragrance.


2. Apply Perfume to Strategic Pulse Points


To maximize the effect of your perfume, it's crucial to choose the right pulse points such as the wrists, neck, and décolletage. These areas where the body naturally emits more heat help to diffuse the perfume more effectively and lastingly.


We recommend spraying the perfume about five inches from the skin for optimal distribution, allowing each note to unfold in all its splendor and interact harmoniously with your personal aura.


3. Do Not Spray Perfume on Clothes


While tempting, the idea of perfuming clothes directly can be risky. It can not only cause stains but also interfere with the chemical composition of the perfume when it comes into contact with different fabrics.


We advocate for applying perfume directly to the skin, where it can blend with your natural oils to create a fragrance that is truly yours, enhancing the expression of your unique personality through the trail you leave behind.


4. Pay Attention to Perfume Storage


How you store your perfume can significantly affect its longevity and quality. Exposing your bottle to extreme temperature variations or direct light can alter its notes and accelerate its aging.


We recommend keeping perfumes in their original packaging at room temperature, away from light and heat. This precaution ensures that every time you spray your perfume, it remains as fresh and invigorating as the day it was poured into its bottle.

5. Vary Your Fragrances


Repeated use of a single fragrance can diminish your ability to fully appreciate its aroma over time. We encourage our customers to explore a variety of perfumes to reflect every facet of their personality and every occasion.


Varying fragrances can renew your love for perfumes and allow you to discover new olfactory preferences that resonate with the different seasons of your life.
