You’ve probably heard of Coco Chanel’s popular declaration, “a woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future.” So if you want to heed the advice of the famous founder and namesake of the ever popular luxury French brand, you best never forget to spritz on your signature scent.
Unfortunately, the reality is that fragrances fade. Especially in ever-sunny Singapore where the heat and humidity can make a sweaty, less than sweet-smelling mess of even the best of us, the perfumes we spritz on with the best intentions never seem to be able to take us through the day without fading to obscurity.
What’s a girl (or guy) to do then? Well, your best bet to smell fresh throughout the day just might be the art of fragrance layering. And for the lowdown on stacking your scents, as well as expert tips and how-tos, we consulted the fragrance expert from Chanel as well as the training manager of Parfums Christian Dior.
