Should you put fragrance on bare skin or after you're dressed? I've been told both.


"The best is to apply the fragrance directly onto unclothed skin," says Christopher Sheldrake, deputy perfumer for Chanel in Paris. "This method creates an alchemy between the skin and the perfume, which is going to express the scent in a more personalized way. On the skin, the perfume gets warmer - it rises with your temperature, which isn't the case of a perfume applied directly on clothes."

How can I make my perfume last longer on my skin?


Your own body chemistry affects how differerent notes react on your skin. Anything that affects the "natural" smell of your skin, such as stress, hormonal changes, your current diet or medications, might change how a perfume smells on you.

Every person has different personal smell and that changes how fragrance react with the skin. You have to apply perfume without rubbing it into your skin, then wait 20 min and only at that time you will know if this fragrance for you or not.

Why do perfumes smell different on different people?


All people emit their own odors and pheromones, so when they mix with the perfume, the perfume can smell different. Also people use different soaps and lotions that can change it too.
