Fragrance 101: Fragrance Dos and Don’ts

pizap.com14717176111251Fragrance Dos:

  • DO wear your favorite scent as much as you want
  • DO use an open fragrance as quickly as possible because the scent does change over time
  • DO apply fragrance directly to the skin focusing on the pulse points
  • DO layer your fragrances for the most impact

Fragrance Don’ts:

  • DON’t expose fragrances to extreme heat or cold
  • DON’t try more than three scents at once when smelling scents to decide which you like because your nose won’t be able to differentiate between the scents
  • DON’t spray on too much of a fragrance at a time. A little usually goes a long way. Usually two spritzes tops!

Fragrance 101: Tips for the Men

pizap.com14715658709701Hey men! This ones for you! Men should smell good too right? Am I right ladies?  Men, you may not think it’s important to smell good, but I’m sure the ladies reading this will agree that we are more attracted to a man that smells good and clean. Okay, so how do you accomplish this? Many companies including Avon sell fragrances for men. Avon offers hair & body wash, after shave, roll-on deodorant, and cologne in fragrances for men. As I mentioned in a previous article for this series, guys you can layer your fragrance by buying all or a combination of the products in the same fragrance line as your favorite fragrance and then layer the fragrance for a longer lasting scent. Maybe you don’t like roll-on deodorant and maybe you don’t shave your face (although I hope even if you maintain a beard and mustache that you groom somehow…but that’s another topic) so you don’t need the after shave. Don’t wear cologne either? Okay well EVERYONE guys included needs to bathe so try the hair & body wash in a fragrance that you like. This is also great for trying new fragrances because even if the scent doesn’t agree with you or a significant other in your life then you only use the hair & body wash and once it’s gone it’s gone and you try something else the next time until you find your signature scent. Avon offers a variety of scents for men of all ages.

Fragrance 101: Body Spray vs. Perfume

pizap.com14714787003231Which do you prefer body sprays or perfume sprays? I love either depending on the situation. Body sprays are great if you are just looking for a light scent or a light refresher on the go. Perfumes are great for a night out or a lasting scent that lasts longer than most body sprays. Basically it is up to your preference, but body sprays are usually lighter in scent and not intended to last a very long time while perfumes are heavier in scent and tend to last longer.

Fragrance 101: Pulse Points

If you wear any sort of fragrance, you have probablyimg_20160101_182749 wondered where it is best to apply it. The places that it is best to apply your favorite fragrances are called pulse points and they are the same for men and women. In the picture to the left, I took a picture of myself and pointed out the main pulse points. Most people know about their hair, wrist, and collarbone, but did you know that behind the ears, elbows, knees, and on your ankles were also good pulse points? Why pulse points? They are the places that the fragrance is most likely to linger and keep you smelling like your fragrance longer. Something else that I heard to do and like doing myself is to spray the fragrance into the air and then walk through it and you get a nice overall fragrance. You can even do that in addition to applying the fragrance to the pulse points.

Fragrance 101: Fragrance Notes

pizap.com14712240531131Did you know that fragrances contain three different notes? Each note brings  a different layer to the fragrance.

The three notes are the top, middle, and base notes.

The top note is the first that you smell and it is what grabs your attention and pulls you into the scent.

The middle note gives the overall fragrance its scent and is the body of the fragrance.

The base note is the scent that lingers and brings depth to the fragrance.

The potency of each note depends on the amount of oils of a particular scent that are part of the fragrance. This is why some fragrances are stronger and others are lighter. The different notes is why some fragrances smell different when you first smell them compared to after the smell has lingered awhile.
