How to shop for perfume

Try not to over spray

Your sense of smell can become numb if you over do your nose with too many scents.
By Having a sniff of coffee can “refresh your nose” in the same way a mint can clear your mouth after a meal.

Take your time 

If you’re wanting to try a perfume you have been recommended from someone else 
spray it on your wrist and spend some time with it to see how it reacts with your skins natural oils as this can change the scent, This is why the same perfumes can smell different on someone else.

Switch it up

You might be looking for a signature scent which captures your personality, but wearing the same thing day in day out and you’ll soon get tired of it. Instead, try and build up a “perfume wardrobe”, with different scents to suit different occasions and seasons.

Scent cards

instead of spraying a few scents all the way up your arm try using the tester cards that are provided, you can mark them so you know what perfume it is and not be mixing the scents together, and the perfume will last more longer on a card if your want to get some one else's opinion  

Found the one? Make it last

You can also help your perfume to go the distance by applying some petroleum jelly to your skin, and then applying your scent on top of that. The perfume droplets will cling to the petroleum jelly - rather than sinking into your pores - which can reduce or eliminate the need to reapply fragrance later in the day.

Pulse points

The "pulse points" are locations on the body where the blood vessels are closest to the skin. These spots emanate heat, which can help fragrance to emanate from your skin into the air. (It's the same principle used by essential oil diffusers). Apply your perfume to these points - namely, the inner wrists, the base of the throat, behind ear lobes, in the cleavage, behind knees, and the inner elbows. As you wear your perfume throughout the day, it will react with your body heat and continue to emit scent
