Wearing perfume is part of the daily routine for many women. Depending on the scent1 it helps you feel sexy, or fresh, and prepared for the day.
While most people spritz perfume onto their necks and wrists, experts say that's not all you should be doing.
In fact, you should be putting perfume on your belly2
Steven Claisse, senior perfumer at fragrance3
company Takasago, said that the navel is useful for more than just belly piercings and advised that dabbing4
a few drops of perfume on the belly button can work wonders.
'Any area on your body that radiates heat will enhance a scent, and your belly button does just that,' he said.
UK-based perfume expert Ruth Mastenbroek, agrees it's one of the places optimal5
for your scent.
This is because perfume should be applied6
to pulse points, which is why it's sprayed onto necks and wrists.
The body heat coming from the pulse point on your belly button, as well as its handy little indent7
, provides the perfect place for perfume.
Even Liv Tyler says that she applies perfume to her belly button. She told Into The Gloss8
that it helps the scent stay.
