Whether we like it or not, smelling good is still a big deal, it can either draw people to you or scare people away from you and no one wants a bad smell that scares people away. Hence, why we bring you easy but effective ways to keep smelling fresh all day long.
Don’t rub your fragrance after you’ve sprayed it on
Spray it on your wrists the back of your neck, or mist it into the air and walk through it. But whatever you do, don’t rub it in because this will make the top note disappear quickly, leaving you with only the middle and base notes, rather than the full fragrance.
Opt for a scented nail polish over a non-scented one
Scented nail polish doesn’t have the fume-tastic odour of regular nail polishes, and breathes on the nail, which allows subtle fragrance emission throughout the day.
Wash your hair when it gets greasy to avoid hair odour (H.O.).
Invest in a hair spray that’s really perfume for your hair
I’m not talking about the kind that offers hold, I mean a straight-up, aerosol fragrance spray specifically for your hair. A formula like this, as the day goes on, will also keep getting refreshed by the heat of your head, so spray it on in the morning before work and again before you go out.
Keep an oil-based rollerball on you at all times
Obviously, you want to smell incredible all day long, but sometimes we want a more potent scent (hi, Saturday night!) over a more subtle one. If you want an “I’ve arrived” kind of scent that’s long-lasting, use an oil-based rollerball. These types are easy to stash in your pocket or purse — plus, oils stay on your skin longer and give off a stronger scent because they’re more concentrated than alcohol-based ones.
Fight unpleasant odours down there by keeping your sweet spot smelling, well, sweet
When you’re dealing with an area that’s buried beneath layers of clothing, the scent revealed once you disrobe isn’t always the prettiest. So, freshen up your flower midday with a baby wipe or on-the-go towelette.
Spray your bare torso with fragrance
Spraying perfume over your torso and even behind your knees offers up added benefit, because there is a certain amount of heat that is generated in these areas.
Pick a killer beauty product combo
If you want to intensify your scent as the day goes on, apply a fragrant moisturizer in the morning, because it isn’t as heavy and won’t offend your co-workers, and then before you go out for drinks, refresh it with a body mist. This also reinstates the top note, which dissipates the quickest because it contains the smallest molecule.
If you tend to get dry mouth, carry gum
Bad breath comes from dry mouth. And if you have low salivary flow, you can’t produce enough saliva to rinse away bacteria. So, to stimulate your salivary glands, chew sugarless gum with xylitol for fresher-smelling breath. However, if the problem persists, talk to your dentist.
