How much fragrance should I wear?

You should not wear to much as you want to smell good, but not be to over powering to some people. Generally, your fragrance should smell at a distance of 1 meter around you.

Should I spray or dab on a fragrance?

Spraying is more even, dabbing is less even and you can loose fragrance.  So spraying is suggested.

What's the best place to put fragrance?

Good places are inside the wrist, behind the ears, elbow area, the temples, shoulders,

behind the knees, the back of the neck, the cleavage area, between the toes, ankles, and thighs.

Remember Fragrances rise, so don't just put fragrance on your face or behind your ears as the scent will slowly rise and disappear.

How can my perfume last longer on my skin?

All other things being equal, perfumes evaporate more rapidly from dry skin, so the best way to make fragrance last longer is to use a relatively heavy body lotion or cream. Some people like to buy the “matching” cream for their fragrance, but you can also use an unscented cream like Cetaphil, or try petroleum jelly or jojoba oil. You might also try a light mist to your hair, which is said to hold scent longer than skin.

What is the difference between alcohol and oil bases?

The oil base is best for those with drier skin or who feel fragrance evaporates rapidly from their skin. It is more moisturizing and must be lightly rubbed in for absorption. The alcohol base sprays a finer mist and disperses the scent wider. Since it is a lighter mist, it also offers you the ability to use it as a room air freshener, a linen spray, or to scent your hair. The alcohol base is dry instantly on the skin. As far as lasting, everybody's skin chemistry is different, but the oil base is more often lauded for its lasting ability.

 How long do I have to wait before trying a new fragrance?

Wait 30 or so minutes before testing each fragrance, this will allow each fragrance to

dry down properly and will also allow your nose to clear from the previous fragrance.
