If a certain smell appeals to you, ask for the sample on the bottle, not on a plastic container where sales attendants usually transfer an amount and use it as a tester. The container of any liquid fragrant products can affect its scent and concentration. Spray directly on your wrist and wait 10 minutes before smelling it. This allows the fragrance to really surface and you will have a better scent of it to help you decide.
Application & storage: The next best part after your purchase is the application of the product. We all can get too excited to try it on once we’re home. However, in order to get the best of your perfume there are a few things you need to remember prior and during application.
Clean skin: It’s ideal that after shower or bath you apply moisturizer or lotion on areas where you would later apply on the perfume. Moist skin holds the scent longer.
Application: To get the best out of your perfume and for maximum result it is better to apply directly on your pulse points. It is where your blood flows strongest so it’s warmer than all the other parts. Dab lightly and allow it to dry on your skin. Try not to go on a spritz-frenzy as well. The right amount will do just fine.
Applying on clothes: Some fabrics have sensitivity to certain chemical components used on some perfumes. Be cautious when applying perfume on your clothes and keep a distance of 5-6 inches from the fabric so each spray can cover a bigger area.
Storage: Keep your perfume in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight or other heat sources. Doing so will help make it last longer. Be mindful of the bottle caps, too. It limits the contamination of your perfume and slows down evaporation.
