Have you ever walked pass someone who just has too much fragrance on you can smell them a mile away?
While some Nigerians think this is a sign of bigmanism, it is wrong and against social etiquette.
As a rule, if you can smell your fragrance on yourself, you have sprayed too much
Many people use fragrances but do you know that how you use your fragrance can be a weapon of mass seduction or mass destruction?
Here are 5 Etiquette for using fragrances..
1. Know your limit
Applying fragrance is a bit like drinking beer: a little makes you sexier, more confident.
A lot makes you appear loud and shouty.
As a rule, people should only be able to smell you when they step inside your own personal “scent circle”, which is about arm’s length from your body.
2. Apply right
Apply from a distance of at least six inches so that the fragrance doesn’t form a concentrated puddle in one area on your skin.
If you want it to last and be noticeable without being overly obtrusive, *try applying to the chest or biceps* – where it will be trapped between your skin and your clothing.
3. Keep it light for work
There’s no reason why you can’t wear fragrance for work - you just need to wear the right fragrance and not wear too much of it.
Sensual fragrances containing notes of oud wood, vanilla or musk might not be appropriated but *light citrus-based ones*
4. *Avoid spraying clothing*
Spraying clothing with fragrance is never a good idea. Not only can certain scents stain white clothes, they can damage fibres too.
The message? Stick to skin. If you skin reacts to fragrances, you are using the wrong product
5. Don’t mask
Never attempt to cover up nasty smells with fragrances.Body odour can react nastily with fragrance, creating an even more unpleasant aroma.
People aren’t stupid – they’ll know you’re trying to disguise something.
Personal hygiene is key, use fragrances to accentuate your natural smell not over power it!
