How To Improvise Perfume

Because No One Carries Around a Bottle of Perfume

What to do when you forget your morning spritz of perfume and then get invited to some fabulous after-work fete? According to perfumer Delphine Jelk, who created Bill Blass Couture 7, rubbing fresh flower petals on your pulse points is perfectly effective when you don't have perfume (provided your receptionist isn't looking). Jelk recommends sticking the remaining petals in your bra, which may be a little too Blanche Deveraux for most of us.

If you're worried about staining your clothes with the pollen, pulling out a fragrance strip from a magazine ad and rub it on — just be careful to stick to one scent or you'll give yourself, and your friends, a headache.
