Keep your skin hy­drated

Spray onto moist skin. “Dry skin doesn’t hold per­fume well, so make sure that your skin is hy­drated,” sug­gests per­fumer Chris­tine Luby, who’s worked on Tom Ford and Jo Malone scents. But make sure to use un­scented body lo­tions so that your fra­grance isn’t wa­tered down.

Spritz onto pulse points

Coco Chanel de­clared that you should spray your fra­grance where you want to be kissed. Typ­i­cally, any area where you can find a heart­beat is a bril­liant place to spritz your scent: your neck, in­ner wrists, in­ner el­bows, dé­col­letage, and be­hind your knees and ear­lobes. Pretty good places to be kissed, too!

Only use a lit­tle

You don’t want to mar­i­nate in your fra­grance. It can over­whelm your senses – and those around you. For a re­fresh­ing whiff through­out the day, try this top per­fumer trick: “Spray a lit­tle per­fume on only the ends of your hair,” rec­om­mends French nose Fran­cis Kurkd­jian.
