perfume RULES


how to stop over-powering perfume
THERE IS NOTHING WORSE THAN OVER-POWERING PERFUME... 
so to avoid being overwhelmed - {and overwhelming everyone around you} with too much perfume, follow these guidelines...

* If you're wearing an actual perfume, use no more than one or two drops and, for an eau de parfum, no more than three sprays; these are the most concentrated forms of fragrance, and they last for many, many hours. {Even longer than you'll be able to smell them on yourself, so resist the urge to reapply.}

* You can mist more freely with the diluted stuff: Four spritzes of an eau de toilette and six mists of a cologne should do the trick.

* And when going to work or a party, avoid layering scented body wash and lotion underneath: It can enhance an already potent scent to the extreme.

They're good tips.

I hate being stuck near someone who has overdone it. There is a fine line, and I always try not to cross it. x

Great tips!! I broke this one when I sprayed on the new Versace scent at Macys last week...later that night it was so strong my hubby kindly asked if I could take a shower at 11pm! He had a massive headache because of it! oops! ;-D
