Some say a pleasant fragrance is the ultimate-accessory. But really, if you stop to think about it, smelling good generally seals the deal – you can as well lock up and throw the key away.
There are ingenious ways that a woman can set off atomic vibrations of attraction – Her confidence levels, for one. I find a woman who wears her confidence like a well-tailored suit extremely attractive. And you very well know that confidence can be enabled by visible factors such as investing in a good wardrobe. And smelling nice.
How you smell leaves the last impression long after you have left the room. And it’s entirely up to you what you want your lingering fragrance to say about your personality – Feminine, Soft, Lady-Boss, Flirty, flowery, earthy. If you so wish, you can layer your fragrance and leave them guessing.
There are secrets to keeping your body fresh and scented all day, best believe it goes beyond spritzing CHANCE by Chanel.
As basic as showering is, we can’t skip it – Once or twice a day, when you feel hot and sweaty, back from a busy day of mingling – go and have a bath.
Somedays you may be out and about when you catch a whiff of skunk on your body. The next best thing is to take out your baby wipes and swipe your neck, armpits, and insides of your elbows.
Immediately after a bath, slather your body cream on your skin. The moisture on your skin will absorb and lock in the scent of your lotion.
Body oils and fragrance
Layer on body oil to add a glow, and then spritz your perfume. To make your perfume(s) last longer, apply them on pulse points across your body:
- Your wrists
- Inside your elbows
- On your neck
- Below your midriff
- Behind your knees
Spray your clothes
And your wardrobe too. Perfumes last long on fabrics even after you have washed. I used to have a friend who sprayed her perfume not only on herself but also on her personal items like face towels, handbags, and notebooks. You couldn’t pick up any of her stuff without knowing; they all smelled like her.
If you have still not gotten round to owning your unique scent, you can try out these black-owned perfume brands which I am sure you will love.
