Many people enjoy buying perfumes. A whiff of a good-quality scent can elevate your mood. Sometimes, its lingering smell on clothes can bring back old memories and make you feel nostalgic.
Sneha Gupta, a personality coach, writes on Instagram that you can “communicate a lot with your fragrance” and that “olfactory (the sense of smell) is a very important aspect of non-verbal communication”.
What is the right way to wear perfume?
According to Gupta, the correct way would be to:
1. Spray 1-2 or 3-4 sprays depending on the type of perfume, for optimum fragrance.
2. Apply it just on pulse points, the points where you feel the heartbeat: on the wrist, on the neck between the clavicle, behind the ears, behind knees, on the folds of the elbow.
3. Keep a distance of 5-7 inches, ensuring the right amount of drops on the skin, instead of leaving a voluminous trace.
