There are so many rules associated with dating, especially with a first date. Sometimes, it can be hard following all those dos and don’ts telling you what to wear, how to behave, and so on. The best idea is to follow your common sense, and you will be fine. But, whatever you do, remember to follow the main guidelines about wearing perfume on a first date.
After all, a first date is all about making a good impression over the other person, and you can only do that by combining your personality with your overall presence. Finding the right fragrance to wear on a first sate night is therefore crucial. But not only is the scent important, the way in which you apply that fragrance also counts. Here are a few easy tips:
1) Choose a light and alluring fragrance
Whatever you do, don’t overreact. Wearing too much perfume may have the reverse effect on the guy you are trying to seduce. Go for something flirty and engaging but only if it is not an overpowering scent.
2) Go with something that best compliments your personality
You should be able to know yourself by now, you know your likes and dislikes, your general style. Don’t buy a perfume that isn’t you, this will never go along with your entire personality when you show up for a date.
3) Wear a scent that is appropriate for the date venue
Knowing in advance where you would go for a first date will help. Going to the movies? Never choose a heavy luxury perfume? First date in a restaurant? Don’t go for something exclusively floral.
4) Apply the perfume correctly
A lot of women have the tendency of applying perfume in excess, in order to “make a good impression on a first date.” Well, they are wrong. The basic perfume wearing rules are the same, no matter where you go. Never bathe in perfume, from head to toe! Just apply it in a few key locations. The wrists, the back of the neck, the décolleté are a few of the places where you should apply perfume: these are key blood flow points on your body, and they will keep the scent on you longer, with lasting and seducing effects.
Remember one thing: the best and most seductive fragrance in the whole world is the one that feels good on you. So, choose a perfume that acts as an extension and reflection of your personality, everything else will follow.
