apparently, i've got a very sensitive and particular nose. work wise i'm lucky to have it; other times, not so much. i understand the reasoning behind department store fragrance spritzing and have become quite adept at avoiding it but when you get into an overly fragranced elevator, car, train, plane, classroom or gym, you have no choice but to do your best at becoming a mouth breather. such was the case on our recent trip.
kai perfume oil: then and now.
- take other people into consideration. at the gym for instance, scents seem particularly heightened... all that deep breathing... personally, unless you're already dolled-up before your workout, perfume and makeup seem overkill to me.
- hospitals and doctors offices. same thing, sick and scent don't make for a good marriage.
- if you're mad about a scent but it's just too "big", invest in the same or similar scented lotion instead.
- roll on fragrance is pretty fool proof to apply due to it's "pinpoint" nature. hard to go too strong unless you want strong.
- eau de parfum is another animal. we've all heard the "walk into it" method, meaning spritz the air and literally walk through it for a subtle scent. i have my own take on this. i don't spray directly but kind of hold the bottle at a distance above me spraying while i move about in what i can only imagine looks like a very strange dance.
- always try it first. fragrance smells differently on everyone
- lastly, less really is more!
