Pretty perfumes. I seem to collect them then forget them. I’m no fan of dusting so I’ve come to the conclusion I need to focus on fragrance. I recently came across an article about some interesting (and intimate!) places to apply your perfume. Although some seemed a bit strange it inspired me to take a look at my collection and actually start using them.
MY FAVOURITE FRAGRANCES RIGHT NOW
CK2 – CALVIN KLEIN
The latest addition to my stash and the biggest fragrance release this year is the coveted CK2. A unisex fragrance that’s fresh, warm and electric. With notes of spicy wasabi, florals, stone and woods. I love the minimal look of the bottle and the scent is unlike any in my collection.
PARIS HILTON – PARIS HILTON
An oldie but a goodie. This may have even been one of my first. I was never a huge fan of Paris but this scent I loved. It’s feminine and fruity. With notes of frozen apple, peach nectar, jasmine, musk & ylang ylang just to name a few.
LUCK – AVON
When it comes to Avon fragrances I used to think of my grandma. Luckily, along with their classics Avon has released some new stunning sophisticated scents. This one in particular was sold to help raise money for breast cancer. Wth a beautiful mix of sparkling citrus, luscious berries, white florals and warm sandalwood.
BLACK XS – PACO RABANNE
I picked this stunner up from a Chemist Warehouse sale and love wearing it on nights out. With notes of hellebore rose, tamarind blossom, pink peppercorns, cranberry, black violet & cacao flower. It’s campaign slogan ‘modern and rebellious princess’ sums it up quite well.
PLAY IT WILD – PLAYBOY
A fun and flirty fragrance. I don’t mind a bit of playboy merchandise and this bottle is just too cute! An oriental and fruity blend including notes of bergamot, pear, dry amber, vanilla and violet. It’s a great girly scent.
SOME SEXY PLACES TO SPRAY THEM
ELBOWS & KNEES
If your wanting your fragrance to last all day an extra spritz on your wrist isn’t gonna help. You need to apply to areas which release more body heat. Behind your knees and the inside of your elbows are both pressure points which will warm during the day making your scent last longer.
You know how your hair smells after you’ve had a big night partying by the bonfire. Well it’s because your hair is great at absorbing scents (some say even better than skin). A light spray of your favourite perfume on your hair or hair brush will leave you smelling gorgeous all day.
If your trying to get noticed by that cute guy at the bar the best place to spray is the part of your body you want him to pay attention too. To lure him in give your cleavage a spritz or two. When you are flirting your body will warm up releasing the scent of your fragrance. He will be thinking of you long after you’ve left the club.
We all learnt at school that heat rises and we now know that our perfumes are activated by body heat. By spraying on lower areas such as your thighs your scent will heat and rise throughout the day. It’s the perfect spot to spray if your wearing a dress or skirt.
Marilyn Monroe once said ‘I only wear Chanel No.5 to bed.’ Now she was on to something. There’s no point spraying your clothes if your planning on taking them off. It’s not recommended to use perfume on intimate areas but there is a trick you can use to get yourself smelling sexy. Mix a small amount of your favourite fragrance with a plain body lotion and apply where your heart desires.
