Perfume oils differ from traditional alcohol-based perfumes in that they contain a higher percentage of fragrance components, with fewer fillers. They also tend to have greater longevity on the skin, but the wear is more intimate with less sillage, or "throw."
Resting: Upon receiving your order in the mail, it's always a good idea to let your perfumes rest for a couple days at least before trying them. Extremes of heat and cold during travel can temporarily alter the scent of a perfume.
Application: To open our sample vials, wiggle the cap back and forth carefully while gently lifting. Apply to your skin with the attached applicator wand, or you may tip the vial upside down with your finger over the opening to get a slightly larger amount. Dab the oil on your pulse points - wrists, neck, and behind your ears and knees. These areas will warm the scent and make it stronger. Gently smooth the perfume onto your skin without rubbing it in. This will allow you to fully experience the top and heart notes.
Storage: Store your perfumes in a cool, dark place since sunlight and heat can damage them. Also be sure the lids are on tightly to avoid evaporation and oxidation. When stored properly, they will last for many years.
