How to Apply and Wear My Perfume Oil?

Adorning oneself with my Perfume oils is more than a mere act of fragrance application—it can be a daily ritual of self care, a moment of connection between your mind and your senses. To begin, choose your points of application wisely. Pulse points—wrists, neck, behind the ears—act as natural diffusers, warming the oil and releasing its fragrance throughout the day.

A dab is all it takes, applied with intention and perhaps a moment of reflection on the properties of the gemstones that inspired my Perfumery. As you anoint yourself, envision the crystal's energy merging with your own, enhancing your aura and amplifying your intentions.

Remember, my oils are designed to be savored by you and those you allow into your personal space, not announced to the room. Wear them as a secret source of strength and allure that accompanies you throughout your day. Link to shop all perfume oil concentrates.

What is The Best Way to Store Perfume?  

Preserving the integrity of your perfume involves proper storage. Here are some tips to ensure your fragrance maintains its quality over time:

  • Keep it in a Cool Place: Heat can cause the perfume to deteriorate, so store it away from direct sunlight and away from high temperatures.

  • Avoid Humidity: Bathrooms often fluctuate in humidity and temperature, which can break down the perfume. Instead, opt for a bedroom or closet.

  • Original Packaging: If possible, keep the perfume in its original box. This provides an additional layer of protection from light and temperature changes. Of course, my Perfume Oil Concentrate Roll-Ons are perfect as they are showcased in my signature Washi-inspired paper boxes and are the perfect travel perfume for perfumistas on the go.

  • Steady Environment: Strive for a place with consistent conditions to avoid the expansion and contraction of the liquid inside the bottle that could lead to a change in the scent.

How Much Perfume Should I  Wear?

Determining the right amount of perfume to wear often hinges on several factors: the concentration of the fragrance, the setting in which it will be worn and personal preference. It's important to consider the context; a subtle application is suitable for close-quarter environments like offices to avoid overwhelming people with fragrance sensitivity, whereas you might opt for a little extra for a night out. The key is to enhance rather than dominate your personal space with scent. Applying to pulse points such as wrists, neck, and behind the ears can help the fragrance to diffuse naturally with your body heat throughout the day.

How Can I Change My Daytime Scent to an Evening Scent?

To transition your scent from daytime to evening, look for ways to intensify or add depth to your existing fragrance. You could layer your daytime scent with a richer, more opulent perfume oil or spray that shares a common note, such as vanilla, amber, or musk. Alternatively, choose a complementary fragrance with a stronger, spicier, or more sensual profile to apply over your daytime scent. Applying the evening scent to warm pulse points like your wrists, neck, or behind the ears can also help it blend beautifully with the remnants of your daytime perfume, creating a seamless transition.

  • Avoid conflicting shower gel and body lotions that may clash with your signature scent.

  • Avoid exposing your perfume bottles to direct sunlight or extreme heat, as it can alter their composition and diminish their quality.
