admittedly, the one thing i cannot leave the house with is perfume. my dresser is filled with bottles and bottles of my favourites, both for men and women. yes, i am one of those who also appreciates mens perfume and i do mix it up from time to time depending on my mood. light and refreshing scents with subtle floral hints are my favourites for the day, especially during summer out here in the sandpit. but i do love bold, powerful scents for special occasions, or for a night out at town.
scent is the most powerful memory trigger. let me linger in your memory…
perfume is the ultimate declaration of the person that you are. your signature scent speaks volumes of you so it is essential to find the right one that will work with your personality and lifestyle. making it last longer is a totally different matter of course.
i would have to be honest with you and say that i do sometimes go overboard with my perfume. i definitely go crazy and spray them all over most of the time. but then i cry later on when i realise i finished a bottle in just one go. anyways, it is all rather simple and easy. just follow my notes below and you are gonna be smelling like a million bucks forever!
dont ever store your perfume in the bathroom. heat, light and humidity can lessen the quality of the fragrance. so keep them in cool, dry places away from the window or direct sunlight. i technically store them all in my dresser drawer and have a few of favourites that i use every single day up on the table together. you can use a nice cake stand to display them if you like.
BEST TIME TO PUT YOUR PERFUME
fragrances stick more to moisturised skin so i usually spray mine after my shower just before getting dressed. so make sure you get to moisturising to help lock in that scent. bonus points? if you layer up with the same moisturiser scent as your perfume.
WHERE TO APPLY PERFUME
you do not need to spray them all over your body. believe me, you dont. simply target pusle points and spray at a good distance from your skin. oh and remember not to rub your wrists too coz this actually breaks up the perfume and can make the scent fade more quickly.
- inside your wrist
- inside your elbow
- behind your ears
- at the base of your collar bone
- behind your knees
anyways, i am a lover of online shopping but i only usually shop for clothes, bags and shoes. so when i stumbled upon WADI and tried ordering a few perfumes, i was amazed at the quick response. for one thing, registration was a breeze, i got my notifications on the spot – from order confirmation, shipment packed and ready for dispatch, down to the hourly information of shipment. and the delivery? apart from the fact that my package came in a nice box, all wrapped and pretty, it actually came immediately the day after. i mean talk about quick and easy service.
and all was done in the comfort of my home, as i listened to taylor swift.
i partnered with WADI to bring this amazing feature with you showcasing some of my personal favourite scents that i always make sure i have on my dresser season after season.
