I use one spritz on my neck, maybe one on either side if the scent is really light. Probably you've grown used to the scent & can't smell it anymore ...

I use well over 10 sprays of perfume, mostly on my neck and behind my ear. I also spray a light scent into my hair, usually a different one than I've used on my neck. This probably makes me seem as though I smell awful, but because I don't use heavy scents it isn't bad at all.

I spray on each wrist, and once on the neck. That's usually good for hours.

I've heard you're not supposed to rub, that this somehow damages the scent ... but whether this is true or an old wive's tale, I don't know I feel it could be true, so try not to do it

I usually spray once on my wrist, gently rub my wrists together and once behind my neck.

I knew it!
I'm breaking the scent. It never smells as strong when I rub it just disappears when it's like.. eau de parfum..
Someone in one of the perfume threads said to spray it in the creases of your elbows and knees..?

I have heard you aren't supposed to rub as well.
It's a hard habit to break once you have been doing it forever, trust me.

Are there pulse points there?
I have always heard you are meant to spray your pulse points (which I know for sure the wrists and neck are) b/c then when your pulse increases the fragrance is reactivated.

I spray once on my neck and once on a wrist.

I spritz on the neck, and then on my wrists and rub.
But when I'm going out I dab some on my arms too... I also do this thing where I spray in the air and twirl under it. Most of it lands on my face, but I like doing it anyway :p
