First of all, what exactly are pulse points? They are areas of the body where blood vessels are close to the surface of the skin. These points include the wrists, behind the ears, and in the crooks of the elbows, the neck, temples, the groin area, behind the knee and the abdomen (belly button). Applying perfume to these areas is said to be more effective because the body heat associated with blood vessels near the skin surface helps to distribute the fragrance.
So what are you thinking ? Please continue as we dive deeper….
Is It Really True – Fiction
First, let’s dispel the myth that perfume will last longer when applied to pulse points. REALLY ? While it’s true that the body heat helps to diffuse the scent, the fragrance will actually evaporate faster because of the increased blood flow. However, pulse points are still a good place to apply perfume because they are places where we tend to sweat more.
The fragrance will mix with our natural scent and create a unique smell that is personal to us. And, because pulse points are often exposed (think wrists, neck, and behind the ears), they are also good places for other people to catch a whiff of our perfume.
Although there does not appear to be any scientific evidence to support the claims that perfume lasts longer when applied to these pulse points, many people swear by this method, claiming that they can smell their perfume all day long.
So, whether the pulse point method actually works (scientifically), is up for debate. But one thing is certain: whether fact or fiction, the pulse point method is a great way to enjoy your favorite scent.
Is It Really True – FACT
Experts tell us to get your fragrance to last all day you should apply it to the following areas or PULSE POINTS.
- Behind the top of your ears, because in addition to being a major pulse point the skin in this area has a little more natural oil which tends to hold the scent better making it last much longer throughout your day.
- Inside of the elbow, wrists are good but, inside the elbows are sooo much better. Not only is this area of your body a pulse point, the crook of your elbow is tucked away in the bend of the arms which will tend to slow the release of the scent making it last longer.
- In your belly button, that’s right folks, spray a little scent into your navel. This area of your body radiates a lot of heat which will definitely enhance the scent.
- Behind your knees, really ? That’s right, this soft area is one of those sought-after pulse points. Definitely include it as you prepare for that special evening.
