  • If possible, carry the perfume with you. Perfumes / scents / fragrances will leave your skin after around 4 hours.

  • Do not over-apply the perfumes as some people will not like to smell you before they see you. If you have over-applied, dilute it by slightly wiping your skin with a warm / wet towel.

  • While applying, do not hold the perfume bottle too close to your skin. Leave a gap of at least seven inches from your body and apply. Following this, the coverage will be more. Apply some in to the palm of your hand and wipe it over your upper body.

  • Treat your perfumes with care and store correctly. Keep them away from extreme temperature and strong sunlight. Kept it in a cool place. You can also keep them in your fridge.
