Apparently we’ve been applying perfume wrong this whole time. Ever noticed the perfume you doused yourself in in the morning before work has completely disappeared by lunch time? Yep, us too.
Well, apparently it’s because we’ve been putting it on all wrong. Most people would put perfume on their wrist or neck, right? They seem like the most logical places to spray yourself to give the most amount of smell. They are pulse points, a place on your body that you can feel a heartbeat and it’s commonly known that pulse points radiate more heat and so allow your fragrance to intensify.
Well, it turns out there is somewhere much better where we’re actually supposed to spray perfume – the belly button. Weird, we know. It’s the last place you’d think of.

According to Huffington Post, the belly button is one of those pulse points we never knew to put perfume on. A lot of celebrities have been harping on about this hack for ages, including Liv Tyler and Adriana Lima, and now it’s been verified by the experts. They say that the reason the belly button is so good is because of its shape, which acts as a natural repository for perfume.
A spritz or two aimlessly pumped is just wasting product, instead, we should be spraying our perfume on our pressure points. Behind the ears, the bottom of your throat and on your wrists – these are the area that should be getting that perfumed love and care.
Why, you may ask? Because our pulse will help stimulate the scent. However, don’t be tempted to rub your wrists together after spraying – this will only dampen the scent of the perfume you so carefully just applied.
Now, go forth and smell beautiful.
