What perfume to wear during the holiday season?

If you'll be spending a lot of time at the dinner table during the holidays, pick a perfume that is long lasting, sensual and/or warm, but not too strong. This way, you won't bother your neighbors with your scent.

To each occasion its own perfume

Christmas scents are generally more robust and complex than those we wear during the rest of the year. They are evocative of cold weather, cozy fires, and festive gatherings. When choosing a Christmas perfume, look for one with warm, spicy, or sweet notes. “It's practically impossible to find a perfume that is suitable for both Christmas and New Year's Eve because the two holidays have such different vibes,” says perfume expert Sofie Albrecht.
“For Christmas, you want something light and airy that won't overpower the turkey aromas. A pleasant floral fragrance is always a good choice. New Year's Eve is a totally different animal. There are usually a lot of different perfumes in the air (some of which don't smell great), so you can get away with wearing something stronger. Something sensual and exotic with spicy, long-lasting oriental base notes, with hints of vanilla, amber and creamy woods.”

How to wear perfume?

Sofie Albrecht reveals that how you perfume yourself can be more important than the type of perfume you wear. She suggests that if you are going to be sitting down for a lengthy period of time, it is best to use a more subtle perfume so as not to disturb those around you. Albrecht personally prefers to perfume her belly, as the heat helps bring the scent up to her nose.

“To make your perfume last, apply it to the warmest parts of your skin (décolleté, neck, wrists) and wear it in your hair too. By doing this, you will increase the amount of fragrance that wafts around you with every movement.”
