How To Apply Perfume The French Way

Prev1 of 3

French beauty and perfume go hand-in-hand! In fact, if you were to call France the birthplace of perfume, you wouldn’t be too far off the mark.

So if you’ve ever wondered how to wear your perfume like a French lady, French fashion designer Justine Leconte has some tips!

Application is the most important part. There are two ways to go about this:

1. First, try applying your perfume delicately on strategic points of your body to ensure people can smell you when it matters.

Dab perfume lower on the wrist, not too close to your hands, where it’ll fade too fast from hand washing and brushing against your desk. Follow with dabs along the jawline and behind the ears, so your perfume can make itself known when you’re kissed in a greeting. Finally, press some perfume lightly on the insides of your elbows and knees so you can be smelt when you walk past seated people.
