How to apply perfume?

Have you ever wondered how best to apply your perfume? Did you know that there are different categories of perfume? In this article, we’ll explore these two essential aspects of perfumery and give you some practical advice on how to get the most out of your favorite fragrance.

Let’s start by understanding the different categories of perfume.

In order of increasing quality, we have perfume, eau de parfum, eau de toilette and eau de Cologne. Eau de Cologne is generally used for refreshment, while eau de toilette has a lower concentration, varying between 5 and 12%. It is often diluted in 85° alcohol. Eau de parfum is less concentrated than perfume, with a percentage of extract varying between 12 and 20%, and exceptionally up to 43% for certain products. It is more volatile than perfume.

Finally, perfume is the highest quality category. It is highly concentrated in raw materials and is not diluted with water. Perfumes or perfume extracts are generally expensive, as they offer unrivalled quality. However, at Anne-Krystel the perfumes we create are an affordable alternative without compromising luxurious quality. Available in 7.5 ml, 15 ml, 30 ml and sometimes even 50 ml bottles, this fragrance allows everyone to enjoy a luxury product without breaking the bank.

Now that we’ve explored the categories of perfume, let’s move on to how to apply it correctly.

For best results, we recommend applying your perfume in small dabs to different parts of the body, such as the nape of the neck, décolleté, behind the ears, wrists, elbows and knees. It’s best to apply little perfume to maintain a light, pleasant scent. Remember the analogy with a fine wine: you savor it, not gulp it down like a bottle bought in a hurry at the supermarket. Let your perfume breathe on your skin. A few drops are all it takes to give your skin a long-lasting fragrance.

When applying your perfume, avoid rubbing it in, as this can alter the chemical composition and change its scent. Instead, gently spray or dab the fragrance onto your skin. This will allow the fragrance to blend naturally with your skin’s oils and develop its notes harmoniously.

It’s also important to choose the right moments to apply your fragrance.

Ideally, put it on clean, moisturized skin, preferably after a shower. The warmth and moisture of your skin will help diffuse the fragrance’s aromatic notes more effectively. It’s also advisable to avoid spraying your perfume directly onto your clothes, as this can stain them. Instead, apply it to your skin for better scent retention and diffusion.

Finally, it’s worth mentioning that every fragrance reacts differently with each individual’s body chemistry. What may smell divine on one person may not give the same result on another. So it’s essential to test the perfume on your skin before you buy. Try it on for a few hours to see how it evolves and interacts with your own body odor.

In conclusion, choosing the right fragrance and applying it correctly are key to fully enjoying this sensory experience. By understanding the different fragrance categories and following application tips, you can create a unique and personal fragrance experience. So take your favorite fragrance, apply it with care and let its magic work all day long.
