Perfume pulse points explained

Don’t beat yourself up about it if you’re only finding this out now, but there’s a *way* to put on perfume effectively. It’s not just a spritz and walk-into-the-fragrance scenario, like the movies tell you. If you want your perfume to last, you need to apply it in the right places.


Pulse points activate perfume using your natural warmth

Pulse points are - as the name says - points where you can feel your pulse. These are the parts of your body where your body gives off warmth, making it perfect to apply perfume to last longer. Perfume is more likely to last on warm, moisturised skin where it can diffuse and magnify the scent - so make sure to use some nice lotion.
