On Which Part of Your Body Do You Wear the Most Perfume?

I always apply perfume to the same two pressure points on my body: the inside of my wrists and on my neck, just behind my ears. If it's an eau de toilette and I'm wearing a dress, I'll dab some behind my knees and occasionally even on my ankles to ensure I leave my special scent behind as I walk, but not always. Sometimes I like to be more subtle, especially if the fragrance is strong. How about you — where on your body do you wear your perfume?

I love spraying fragrance in my cleavage area. I get to enjoy my own fragrance, and desired company can smell me as well. When I'm using a body mist/spray, I definately spray my whole body.

I probably wear too much based on what Bella says. I just dab a BIT, but I apply it behind my ears, on my wrists, behind my knees if I'm wearing a dress, on the inside of my elbows, and in the hollow at the base of my throat. Aaaand maybe just a tad bit in my cleavage if I'm going out with my fella in the evening...

I never wear perfume on my skin because of the spots the alcohol leaves, and living in a very hot country I don't wanna have any problems! So I just use Perfumed Body lotion or Spray perfume on my tee!

Sometimes I do get spray-happy. That's one of those days when you want to be sure everybody can smell how good you smell.

When I'm spraying a perfume, I aim for in inside of my wrists, a little behind the ears, and some in my clevage. If I'm using a fragranced body spray, I'll spray in thos spots and also behind my ears. I might try my ankles one day.

I'm with retrodoll - it depends on the category of perfume. Light ones I spray and walk through, parfums I dab in all the important places, knees and ankles always (Hubby's a leg man). IMO you should not spray your clothes, it doesn't work as well and is sometimes too strong; it needs to be on your body to work its magic.

In my hair and on my neck. I have short hair though and I find it really does linger longer in my hair.
