Why do we apply perfume on the wrist and the back of the neck? Perfume is an indulgent mostly used to increase or heighten the “sexual allure” of the opposite sex (it is a well known fact that women like men with a healthy dose of sexual appeal) – why do we apply it on the wrist and the back of the neck?
Is it because we can smell it, or is it because it makes us feel good? The reasons could be any one of these – I am not a psychologist so I don’t know your best tricks but I think you get the point. Let’s explore a bit further into the mystery of why and how we apply this sexy liquid to our skin.
First off, a lot of the time when women apply perfume on the wrist and the back of the neck they are doing it as part of their overall “cologne” routine. After all, our sense of smell is very important and we need to continually cleanse and refresh our bodies to keep ourselves “tuned in”.
When I apply perfume on the wrist and the back of my neck I am aware that I am doing this but when I am alone and just thinking about my favorite girl or guy, I forget about my sense of smell and my concentration breaks – what a disaster.
Its important to stay focused on something else while you are doing this – its a bit like going on a diet but instead of losing weight you are losing brain cells.
So maybe we don’t know the answer to the question, “Why do we apply perfume on the wrist and the back of the neck”, its probably better if we didn’t answer it at all. What we do know though is that women love colognes and we love being noticed for our beautiful scent.
The next time you want to find out why we are all so eager to put on that new Cologne, why not try to apply it on your wrist and see how you feel? If you agree with me that it’s pretty gross, then maybe you should start putting on some on the rest of your body too. Just think on it.
Should You Spray Perfume on Your Neck?
Should you spray perfume on your neck? It’s not just because it smells good and you want to keep it around you at all times, but also because of the dangers of inhaling second-hand perfume. Chemicals in the scent can get on the skin and cause a burning sensation on the back of the neck. On the wrist, it can irritate and even damage the skin there.
Chemicals in perfume are very volatile, so even if you’re wearing a good pure perfume when you spray it on the neck, you’re still risking a reaction.
And a reaction is when the chemicals interact with your skin, causing a burn. So yes, you should spray perfume on the neck whenever you want to keep yourself safe.
But only to an extent that’s tolerable. If you really have to spray on a full-strength bottle on the neck, you might be putting yourself at risk for a burn.
That being said, on the neck you don’t need to spray perfume thickly. A dab is fine, a couple dabs is actually fine. Just remember that on the back of the neck, the scent will be diffused, so it won’t be as noticeable as it would be if you sprayed a heavy coat.
A light, barely detectable coating on the back of your neck isn’t going to do you any harm, but it’s better to err on the side of caution. You can always spray another scent on the back of your neck the next time you decide to wear a particular fragrance.
Should You Spray Perfume on Your Wrist?
How do I apply perfume on the back of the neck or should I spray perfume on my wrist? Typically, the best pulse points to apply perfume to are the armpits, your wrists, behind your ears, in the middle of your back, and behind your knees.
You want to spray your perfume on these spots to maximize the concentration of your fragrance and activate the scent at that particular area.
Perfume works on all body parts, but it is especially potent on the back of the neck. A high quality fragrance will saturate into your skin and leave behind a beautiful scent that will linger.
If you have never tried the wonderful scent of a high quality cologne then you should consider trying some of the newer, more innovative colognes on the market. Most of them contain natural ingredients and do not contain artificial scents or alcohol.
These types of colognes will give you a much better fragrance and smell than the typical cheap Cologne that you find on the shelves at department stores. These colognes will also make you look better and even smell better because they are loaded with more natural fragrance notes.
When you decide that you want to spray perfume on your wrist, remember that you must first apply a thin layer of the product to your wrists and wait a couple of minutes before proceeding to the next step of applying the fragrance to your back.
There are different sprays that you can use to accomplish this, such as the spray bottle from Bath & Body Works or bottles from Cheap Scents.
Spray the perfume on both sides of the paper with a large sponge to create a smooth finish, rub the sponge gently with a towel to even out the coverage, and then lightly dab the excess perfume on the back of your wrists.
Where Should You Put Perfume on Your Body?
Putting perfume on the wrist is not really a very good idea if you want to keep yourself smelling fresh all day long. Perfume is an oil-based product and it tends to get evaporated rather quickly if you are not using a good absorbing cloth for applying it.
So, before you go out shopping for a good smelling perfume spray, it would be better if you knew ahead of time where you should put it on the wrist.
You might want to find out what type of skin you have and determine what kind of absorbed cloth you need to use in order for the perfume to be absorbed by the skin and stay fresh all day long.
On the other hand, if you wear a Cologne that has a powerful aroma on the wrist, you should apply it on the back of the neck. This is because it is often more difficult for the scent to evaporate on the back of the neck than it is on the wrist.
The Cologne tends to stay fresh on the back of the neck for a longer period of time and you do not have to reapply it as often as you do on the wrist.
So, if you are wearing a scent that is strong, such as a sporty fragrance, you should put it on the back of the neck instead of on the wrist to make sure that it remains fresh throughout the entire day.
There are other places on the body where you should put perfume, however. For example, if you wear makeup, you should put it on the back of the neck so that it does not evaporate as fast on the skin as it does on the wrist.
If you are going to wear lipstick, you should put it on the lips as well, since this also keeps the scent on the lips for a longer period of time than on the back of the neck. Finally, the toes can also be a great place for perfume, especially if you go with a fruity scent or one with a floral undertone.
Is it Better Spray Perfume on Clothes Or on the Skin?
Many perfume lovers think that it is better to apply perfume on the wrist or the back of the neck. Although they are right, the problem is that it is not an ideal way to apply a scent as it does not last very long. You can also apply it on the clothes without any problems.
It is the fact that perfume has an oily material on the outer surface of the perfume molecules that make them less effective as compared to some other materials.
However, once you apply a perfume on the wrist or on the back of the neck then you will notice that the smell will stay for longer periods of time.
In order to apply perfume on the wrist or on the back of the neck, you need to have clean and fresh hands. You should also wear clean clothes that do not contain any dyes or chemicals.
If possible then you can try and get hold of a perfume testing kit to make sure that the perfume on the body is not going to go off with the shower water. This way you can make sure that the perfume stays on the body for the entire day.
The rule of thumb is that if you cannot stay on the body for more than half an hour then you should consider that the perfume on the body has gone off.
Another question that many people find difficult to answer is whether it is better to spray perfume on clothes or on the skin. In most cases, both of these items will work well. However, there are some situations in which one would be better off spraying the perfume on the skin.
If you plan on wearing a suit all day then it would be better to spray the perfume on the clothes rather than on the skin as the fragrance from the perfume will last longer on the clothes. You can also purchase a spray perfume bottle that you can spray on the clothes rather than the perfume.
Should You Rub Your Perfume On Wrist And Neck?
One question I get asked quite often is should you rub your perfume on your wrists and neck? There are a couple of reasons for this. First, by rubbing your scent on the skin, you allow the scent to become more easily absorbed.
The other reason is you do not have to worry about applying the scent on the back of your neck or wrists because you apply it on the skin. However, there are a few things you should know about applying your scent on the wrists and neck.
Rubbing your perfume on your wrist and neck will allow you to spread the fragrance all over your body, but not as quickly as if you were applying it on the back of the neck or on the skin. This means that it will take you longer to reach the whole area where your scent is wanted, which can be irritating at times.
Of course, some people enjoy being able to spray their scent all over their body, but if that is not you, then you might be better off just spraying the scent on the surface of your body rather than going through the process of rubbing.
Another thing to consider is that you will need to brush after you apply your scent because the oils will settle into your hair and will not be distributed evenly if you do not brush.
When it comes to whether or not you should apply perfume on the wrist and neck, it all depends on your preferences and also on how you normally wear your scent. If you wear it often on the wrist and neck, then the chances of rubbing it on these areas are very slim, and you might benefit from just spraying a little on the back of your neck or on the surface of your body.
However, if you wear it on the wrist and rarely ever wear it on the neck, then you might benefit from rubbing the scent on the inside of your wrist. If you follow these simple steps, you will be able to determine whether or not you should apply perfume on the wrists and neck.
