Pulse Points Keep Perfume Effective Longer

Applying a perfume product differs according to our culture apparently.  Western thoughts are to apply it at strong pulse points – and we have several – on the insie of our wrists and elbows;  behind our knees and at th nape of he neck.  When frangrance is applied to any of these points, particularly behind he knees for example, allows the seent to warm and rise.  A very lightly scented product such as a shower gel,  bath oil, or the accompanying body lotion will only be effective for an hour or so and therefore applied in the morning or immediately […]

Pretty Aromas Around Help Sell That House

In these very challenging trading times, when so many stores are closing and shoving loyal workers out on the street, it is truly remarkable to find a new store opening up.  This is after many years successfully trading only online.  The product is high end perfumed candles and fragrances for the home.  Now this is one business sector that has really taken off in recent years.  I think it started slowly back in the laste 1980s with a particular daytime tv hostess – one who took grotty unsellable houses and miraculously turned them around to make big bucks for the […]

Sitting Pretty In Heady Floral High Notes

Oh how I do love a really petty floral scent when I’m doing something that makes me a little nervous.  Take the interview for example – nothing is likely to raise the body temperature more than the thought of sitting in that waiting room, trying to memorise all the bits of info gleaned off the firm’s website – just in case of unexpected questions.  To prepare for a day like that, I always like to buff and brush myself down and then have a really luxurious bath the night before.   The wonderful pampering feeling comes with the exotic bubbles or […]

I was recently having a very rare self induglency hour or four, down at my local area designed for shopping extravaganzas.  The brand new and very exotic looking stores include an amazing big department store name – hopefull going to ride out the recession;  also available is a proper 100 percent top notch perfume and skin care outlet.  This french brand is usually only found in Bond Street or Harrods, or in fact Paris.  To find this store with it’s gorgeous sales staff and even more gorgeous product range right here in my locality is like a dream come true.  […]

Moderation In Mind Before Spraying That Perfume

It can be extremely hard to keep fresh and smelling sweet in this unusually hot weather.  I know that I can just pop upstairs and take a very quick and economical shower – the luxury of that cooling spray on the skin is beyond description some times.  For the older person though, this is not always an option.  They may be handicapped by having to wait for carers to call before they venture to a shower.  Smelling lovely is something that a great number of folk aspire to.   Bounding around in the heat with far too heavy an application of […]

IT Socialites Must Be Seen With The In Crowd

It’s approaching that time when a certain tennis club of south west London has a centre court upon which the entire world will be fixed at some time or other during the next fortnight.  It brings out crowds of folk all trying to get there.  The makeup and perfume sales for this period go through the roof too.  It’s a very high social time for the country and one which we relish and do very very well at.  Some days when you go out to a function, you remember at the last minute to have a little spray, but the […]

Scent Bottles In Clothing Drawer Reignite Memories

I have recently had the sad task of helping to empty out the bungalow of an ancient relative who has moved in to a residential care home.  The actual clearance is ok, quite fun to a certain extent.  When there are several family members working together, especially when usually far apart, there is a lot of banter.  There is also, by reason of the task, much travel along memory lane.  We found this when tackling the bedroom.  The contents of the beautiful oak  chest of drawers so neatly arranged, all the clothes had been laundered, folded neatly and replaced in […]

Highs & Lows Perform Perfumery Secrets

When you study a chart that gives the basic perfume blending guuide for top, middle and base notes, it is hard to recognise any kind of scent that we may b familiar with.  OUr own very most favourites ones will have been made using a selection of the table – no perfumier worth his salt will use anything other than the very best ingredients and some on the chart will come as a real surprise.  cardomom, clove, cinnamon, tangerine, tagetes etc.  These are all familiar names out in the garden but not to the nose necessarily.  We all have a […]

Memories Are Scent From Heaven

Taking my dear old mother in law out for a quick birthday lunch is not as easy as it used to be.  We would tootle off to a nearby eatery and make for a really good fun lunch time.  Sadly this is challenging now as she suffers the dreadful dementia.  Her mind wanders in and out of normality with terrifying speed.  I try to remind her of the now, today as often as I can but it’s now hopeless.  Perfume products are the way forward now though – she recalls happy times when she was courting my father in law.  […]

Hi Notes & Warm Skin – Magic Of Perfume

In any year we are going to meet a tremendous variation in weather conditions in this little Isle of ours.  Even today for example, started off damp and muggy, not too cold.  Halfway through the morning it became beautifully sunny and looked warm – but no, the heat disappeared, it was actually very sunny but freezing cold.  So a return to the snowy conditions of last week could be coming.  The weather and temperatures are paramount to perfume.  Each person has their own individual scent to start with and our skin affects the result of applying perfume or other scented […]
