Adeline Lim, Seibu cosmetic manager TRUE Perfume can stain light-coloured clothing if it's sprayed too close to the fabric. It's best to spray onto your skin from about an arms-length away. It's most effective to spray or dab just below the ear and on each wrist. Layering perfume with the same scent in a body lotion will make it last longer. Eau de perfume will last longer than eau de toilette as it's more concentrated. Roll-on perfumes last longer than sprays as they contain more oil. FALSE It's a good idea to spray body perfume into your hair. It's best to spray it into the air, then walk through the mist to get the right amount of scent. The same fragrance smells the same on every person. Younger women prefer florals. Women shouldn't wear men's fragrances. Rub wrists together vigorously after applying scent.
