    Dear Friends,

    Today women have fragrance wardrobes of at least six different perfumes, rather than a single signature perfume, keeping one special perfume for occasion moments.

    People have used perfume, oils and unguents on their bodies for thousands of years in lesser or greater amounts dependant on fashion whims. It's interesting to note that perfume has come full circle today as more and more of us seek out high quality aromatherapy perfumed oils to use in exactly the same way as our ancestors did.

    Products that enhance the feel of skin and the smell of the body have been highly valued in every culture. Trade routes introduced spices to other parts of the world and a wider range of scents could be made. In the past people often mixed their own potions using home methods creating their own aromatherapy products. Many homes had a still room where essences were steeped out of flowers and herbs.

    Tips for Wearing Perfume


    1. When you apply perfumes apply them to pulse points such as the folds in the crook of your elbow and back of knees, wrist, neck and cleavage.
    2. Make sure you do not rub wrists together as this crushes the smell.
    3. Spraying a little into the air is also good if you walk straight into the perfume. This helps to diffuse it over your body.
    4. Do not simply apply to the neck always work up the body as the scent rises. Also consider wearing in your bra a small ball of perfume impregnated cotton wool.
    5. Consider layering perfumes. Use all the same perfume in various products.
    6. Begin with shower or bath gel and then rub in body lotion or spray with a matching after bath spray.
    7. Finally apply the scent preferably as perfume or EDP.
    I find that the use of body lotion makes you feel really scented and it is probably to do with starting at the feet and applying the scent all over allowing the scent to rise. It also makes you feel extra special and very pampered.

    1. Keep bottles tightly stopped, away from direct heat and out of sunlight.
    2. You will certainly know when they have gone off as you'll notice that you do not get that lovely boost of heavenly scent when you spray or dab and the fragrance will look darker in the bottle.
    3. Some perfumes come in blue or opaque bottles and these store perfume well.
    4. Try to choose perfumes that suit you, not your friends or family.
    5. Test a perfume in a store and then walk around for a minimum of ten minutes.
    6. Some perfumes take more like half an hour or an hour to truly develop. For example, Boudoir by Vivienne Westwood, Jicky by Guerlain and Must de Cartier are all ones I love after an hour, but am not convinced on first sniff.
    7. Put a few drops of perfume onto an oil burner to scent your bedroom.
    8. At Christmas use musky oriental room fragrances in the form of perfumed incense sticks, candle or sprays to enhance the familiar associated yuletide seasonal smells of cinnamon, orange oil, pine, frankincense and myrrh.
    Love
