4. Spritz Drawer Liners with Scent
Line your dresser drawers with tissue paper sprayed with your favorite perfume. This keeps your drawers and your clothing suffused with a light dose of your signature scent. Note Fragrances offers a tutorial on making scented tissue paper drawer liners. You can also line your linen closet with sweetly scented tissue paper for beautifully scented sheets and towels. When you have to go out of town, a light hint of scent on your spouse’s pillow will keep your loved one thinking of you.
3. Store Your Fragrances Properly
Proper storage helps your fragrances last longer. To keep your perfume smelling fresh, avoid storing it in areas with high humidity. While the best time to apply perfume is right after a shower, the high levels of humidity in your bathroom can cause the components of your perfume to break down quickly. Furthermore, sunny spots such as a sunlit countertop or windowsill can degrade the chemical components of your perfume. Store your fragrances in a cool, dry, dark area such as a bedroom drawer or cupboard.
2. Avoid Overdoing It
You may think you smell amazing, but the opinions of those around you may be the opinions that matter. If your scent is so strong that others cough, sneeze, or avoid sharing air space with you, then you might be overdoing your scent. If you are able to detect the scent of your own perfume consistently throughout the day, you may have applied too much. If you receive comments or compliments on your scent, take note of how close the other person is. If someone is mentioning your perfume from across the room, the scent may be too strong or too thickly applied.
1. Be Mindful of Others
Many people suffer from allergies or sensitivities to scents. Be aware of others and the very real issues of headache, difficulty breathing, and sneezing that can be triggered by perfumes. While you may love a fragrance, you probably also enjoy wearing it to be more attractive to others. If those around you are suffering due to your fragrance, you are probably not creating an inviting persona. Don’t take offense if someone you share a tight space with requests it be a fragrance-free zone. They may not be able to take advantage of the delights of wearing and enjoying a beautiful scent.Related: 11 Items That Don’t Belong in Your Bathroom
