Have you heard of fragrance layering but aren’t sure what it is? To put it simply, this is one of the best ways to have your favorite womens perfume or mens cologne last and last without having to reapply or wind up with an overwhelming scent attached to you. The idea is that through using scented shower washes, body lotions and finally applying a touch of the fragrance itself, you will have a longer lasting scent that doesn’t need to be reapplied.
Layering Your Perfume, Lotions and Scents For Perfection
There are a few points you can follow when layering your fragrances, to achieve the perfect amount of scent. Firstly, will you be wearing a light scent or is the one you’re working with a little bit heavier? This is important because if you’re going with a heavier fragrance, you may want to change the amount of perfume you actually use so that you don’t get an overpowering scent.
It is also important to consider what type of skin you have when you apply perfume. If you have dry skin, then you might want to use the scented body lotion or cream, but if you have oily skin it’s a good idea to choose the body powder instead. You shouldn’t use both heavily, unless you want to be overpowered by your fragrance for the day.
How to Apply Perfume and Begin Fragrance Layering
When you’re planning on fragrance layering, you should first choose the scent you would like to be wearing. Some people choose an everyday scent that isn’t too expensive but smells really nice. Many bath and body care shops have fragrance lines that you might like, so this might be a good place to start.
You’re going to need to buy the shower gel or body wash, lotion or powder and the fragrance itself. The idea is to not get too overpowering with your fragrance, so you won’t need to apply too much perfume when you’re done. You’ll shower and use the body wash, shower gel or scented bar soap to wash your body. Depending on your skin type you may want to choose a moisturizing body wash to help keep the skin soft and moist.
Your next step in fragrance layering,is to apply a moisturizer of some kind to your whole body. If you have dry skin, consider a cream scented with your favorite fragrance to help keep the skin soft and offer a delightful fragrance all day long. Skin which is normal or doesn’t get dry might only need a light body lotion and maybe some powder in the warmer months of the year to absorb wetness.
Fragrance Layering For Men
If you’re a man who wears men’s colognes and who is interested in fragrance layering, you will also want the matching deodorant found in many fragrance layering kits. You might also like the after shave balm that many of these sets offer. For you, this is one of the best ways to layer your fragrances because women are very attracted to men that smell good and after shave and deodorant and two ways that you can ensure that you’ll smell great hour after hour.
Once you’ve completed these steps, you’ll want to apply your fragrance, whether it’s cologne, perfume or eau de toilette to the pulse points of your body. For women, consider the backs of the knees, the cleavage and the pulse points at the throat. For men, the wrists and neck are great places to apply your fragrance. Don’t forget the chest too. Women can smell the fragrance when they are up close.
Fragrance layering is a great way to ensure that you get the lasting benefits of the scents you love without having to reapply all the time and smell great all day and all night.
