The One Thing You Should Never Do When Spraying Perfume

If you watched your mom spray perfume onto her clothes when you were a child, chances are good that you now do the same. But that’s actually the wrong way to apply your fragrance.

One of the biggest reasons why it’s a no-no is that a fragrance—especially one with a dark hue—can stain your clothing’s fabric, and these are stains that are nearly impossible to get out, especially if it’s a delicate fabric like silk and satin. In addition, since fabric does retain the smell of perfume longer, it might take a few washings to get a particularly strong scent out of your clothing. This can pose a real problem if you decide you don’t like a scent or someone close to you has an adverse reaction to it.

The biggest reason, though, why you should skip this step is that your scent won’t be as effective when sprayed on your clothing. Fragrance is meant to interact with your skin, so the best place to apply it is directly onto your skin, specifically your pulse points (the inner wrists, the base of the throat, behind ear lobes, in the cleavage, behind knees, and the inner elbows). These areas are where the blood vessels are closest to the skin, and they emanate heat which can help the fragrance rise from your skin into the air. So instead of smelling like you’re covered in a particular scent, you’re simply giving off a hint of it.

Be sure to check out why you should never rub your eyes with your hands and the one thing you should never do when popping a pimple.
