STROKE OF GENIUS A brush with fragrace guru Jo Malone
PAINT-ON PERFUME, WE HEAR YOU ASK?
Indeed. Fragrance doyenne Jo Malone has declared the best way to apply your scent is with a brush. Why? Because rubbing your wrists post-application annihilates all the top notes, and besides, declares Jo, using a brush is a far more demure way to distribute scent across skin. Sure, she’s selling highly strokable Jo Loves Fragrance Paintbrushes (£40) but you can do the same by spritzing your fragrance onto a foundation or paint brush. Just stick to synthetic bristles – natural ones (from animal hair) soak up the scent. Paint one stripe down your arms and legs, zigzag a different scent on top, then enjoy your newfound status as immaculately fragranced goddess.
