How to Apply Perfume Like a Pro

Perfume is a personal expression that can enhance your mood and make you feel confident. But if you apply it wrong, it can be overpowering and even offensive. Here are some tips on how to apply perfume like a pro:

How to Apply Perfume Like a Pro

1. Choose the right location. The best places to apply perfume are your pulse points. These are areas where your blood vessels are close to the surface of your skin, so they will help to diffuse the scent. Some good pulse points include:

  • The insides of your wrists
  • Behind your ears
  • The nape of your neck
  • The crooks of your elbows
  • The backs of your knees

2. Don't rub. When you apply perfume, don't rub it in. This will only break down the top notes of the fragrance, which are responsible for the initial burst of scent. Instead, simply spray or dab the perfume on your pulse points and let it dry naturally.

3. Use a light touch. A little bit of perfume goes a long way. You don't need to drench yourself in it to smell good. Start with a few sprays or dabs and then add more if needed. All of the perfumes at Zaydan NYC are Eau de Parfum, which means they are very strong. A little goes a long way. Make sure you check out our post on different perfume classifications to understand more about perfume strength. 

4. Experiment. The best way to find out where and how you like to apply perfume is to experiment. Try different locations and see what works best for you. You may also want to try different fragrances to see which ones you like the best.

5. Consider your skin type. If you have dry skin, you may want to apply perfume to your hair or clothes instead of your skin. This will help to keep the fragrance from evaporating too quickly.

Common Misconceptions

There are a few common misconceptions about how and where to wear perfume. Here are a few of them:

  • You should apply perfume to your clothes. This is actually a bad idea. Perfume can stain your clothes and it will also evaporate more quickly from fabric than from skin.
  • You should apply perfume to your armpits. This is a big no-no. Perfume can react with your sweat and create an unpleasant odor.
  • You should reapply perfume throughout the day. This is not necessary. In fact, reapplying perfume too often can actually make you smell worse. The scent of perfume will naturally fade throughout the day, so there's no need to keep reapplying it.


Following these tips will help you to apply perfume like a pro. With a little practice, you'll be able to find the perfect way to wear perfume that will make you smell great all day long.

Here are some additional tips and suggestions:

  • Use unscented lotion before applying perfume. This will help to keep the fragrance from evaporating too quickly.
  • Avoid applying perfume in direct sunlight. This can cause the fragrance to break down prematurely.
  • Store your perfume in a cool, dark place. This will help to preserve the fragrance's potency.
  • Experiment with different fragrances to find your signature scent. Check out our collection at Zaydan NYC. We're sure you'll find your unique touch!
