  • How to perfume yourself?

Directly on the skin. In fact, it is the warmth of the skin that best reveals a fragrance. For those with sensitive skin, it is recommended to perfume their clothes or even their hair.

  • Where to perfume?

Everywhere you want to be kissed!

  • When to perfume?

There are fragrances for the night (more sophisticated) and fragrances to use in daily life (fresher and tonic. Most of the time, fragrances feel differently according to the seasons. Why? Because following the different atmospheric pressures (warm, cold ...), perfumes do not have the same evaporation.

  • My perfume no longer smells!

Yes it does! But if you always wear the same thing every day, it is natural to get used to it and have the feeling that the fragrance is no longer efficient ... We also have the feeling that the fragrance is always better on other leathers! All of this is a natural reaction called anosmia.

The solution: have several fragrances and feel free to change them from time to time.
