Sneha Gupta, a personality coach, writes on Instagram that you can “communicate a lot with your fragrance” and that “olfactory (the sense of smell) is a very important aspect of non-verbal communication”.

But, is there a right and wrong way to wear perfume? Yes.

Gupta explains in a video that the incorrect way to wear a perfume would be:

1. Wearing too much of it. Applying it on jewellery and clothes. This could potentially leave stains.

2. Sometimes, people rub it aggressively on the wrist, and that is a wrong way to wear it, because “it can change and also undertone the fragrance”.

1. Spray 1-2 or 3-4 sprays depending on the type of perfume, for optimum fragrance.

2. Apply it just on pulse points, the points where you feel the heartbeat: on the wrist, on the neck between the clavicle, behind the ears, behind knees, on the folds of the elbow.

3. Keep a distance of 5-7 inches, ensuring the right amount of drops on the skin, instead of leaving a voluminous trace.
