You’ve covered all the basics. A sexy red lip, va-va-voom hair, a form-fitting dress and now the final step, an alluring scent to “bring forth” the inner siren. It’s almost Valentines Day and who doesn’t love a little self-pampering to boost ones vixen within? That’s why this shared knowledge that I’m about to drop will blow your mind! Make sure you are paying attention. You won’t wanna make a mistake when applying your enchantment-in-a-bottle. After all, you’ll wanna entice and not repulse your guy (or, potential guy…)

Did you know that “pulse-points” act as an inner bottle of perfume? Yeah, they give off heat and release the scent you are wearing which is really, quite cool.
What are your pulse points? Your wrist and neck right? Actually, you have a ton of points! Along with your wrists you have your inner elbows, temples, neck hollow, behind the ears, and behind the knees. Told you, knowledge!!
Apply no more than two drops of perfume, three sprays of eau de parfum, and four hits of eau de toilette.
But don’t go too crazy spritzing. Over time, you become desensitized to the smell of a fragrance, resist the urge to pile it on, and stick to the amount you used when you first wore the fragrance.
Be careful not to over spritz the Décolletage (exposed neck line area) because perfume can dry out the skin which will lead to early wrinkles. Try behind the ears or even on your own clothing for a day-in-day-out regimen.
Glamour Mag did a test run on what men typically like to smell and came up with this ever-so informative list:
🏵Floral, Fruity & Spicy
🏵Sweet, fresh orange
-powdery, Grandma scents
-or whatever the Ex-girlfriend wore should be tossed out.
I was really surprised to find that guys really like woodsy scents for women! What did you find interesting in this article?
