I’m spending my last days of vacation in Warsaw, doing some perfume related things and helping in a perfume boutique. I’ll be going back home tomorrow, Saturday afternoon but before I do that, I’m meeting perfumer Olivier Durbano. He’s a special guest to the perfume workshop at Quality Missala. It’s the 1st workshop after a summer break. I’m very excited to meet him, hope there’ll be a chance to talk to him for a while. In my dreams he’d agree for an interview for the blog.
In the meantime I have another weekend poll for you, so that nobody gets bored waiting for another review. The question is do you spray with abandon? How many sprays of a perfume do you usually use? Do you re-apply your perfume during a course of the day or adjust number of sprays to the “power” of the fragrance? Do you apply to the pulse points or you have some other favorite body spots to spritz on?
In most cases I use 6 sprays of a fragrance: one to each wrist, one to each side of the neck, one to the center of the chest and final one is sprayed on my fingers to apply behind my ears. I normally don’t re-apply, I don’t carry a perfume with me to the lab. But sometimes when I stay at home and feel that my perfume is flying away, I go to my perfume box and use 1-2 additional clouds of scent. I don’t have any heavy hitter perfumes so I see no reason to change the number of sprays. But in the summer I apply my citruses a little bit more generously. As mentioned in the answer to the first question, I apply to the pulse points. How about you? Let me know in the comments!
