I always say that smelling good is just as important as looking good. It makes scents!
Will is what I call a bestsmeller! He smells great all the time. Like, any time of the day. Now I know a lot of that has to do with attraction and genes and proper hygiene, but not everyone can be a bestsmeller. Or can they? Here are a few tips.
Drink up! When it comes to fragrance, if you want it to stay on your skin longer, your skin needs to be hydrated. Dry skin doesn’t hold scent, so it’s a good idea to also use a body lotion so there’s something for the fragrance to adhere to.
Where you apply your scent really makes a difference. For maximum diffusion, apply some fragrance to your pulse points: the inner wrists, the elbows, behind the knees and at the nape of the neck. If you prefer a more subtle effect, try spraying the fragrance in the air and then walk into it — like my mum Margaret does!
Now, having mastered the art of smelling good, how about some new launches to perfect the art?
If you are already a fan of Escentric Molecules, you will go crazy for these three new scents I spotted and sniffed in Seagreen, see seagreen.ie.
Project Renegades, below, €165 each, is the new offering from Mark Buxton, Geza Schoen and Bertrand Duchaufour — three classically-trained perfumers who broke the classic mould. Once again, these scents are unlike anything else on the market at the moment. Bertrand Duchaufour, below right, with it’s pink peppercorn is my favourite, although I love the rich fir and green juniper of Geza Schoen, below centre, while, my bestsmeller Will is even more raaaar when he wears Mark Buxton, far left.
