Fragrance Facts pg1

- COSMO

Unlike most products, fragrance doesn’t come with instructions. You’re just supposed to know things like: How much should I spritz? Why does the scent disappear? And why does something smell amazing on a friend, but like toilet spray on you? So, we rounded up your most frequent scent questions and put them to the best experts around – not only top perfumers but people who actually study scent for a living. Here they are.

They always see the difference in the strength and longevity with the layering technique.’
