Just when you thought mum life couldn’t get any busier, it does. And, no, it’s not just you – we know how hectic everything gets! So, mums, it’s time to know about these perfume hacks, which will make your days a bit easier...
SPRITZ ON YOUR PERFUME POINTS FOR MINIMAL TOUCH-UPS
Thought perfume was just for your wrists and neck? Nope, you can also apply it to parts of the body that radiate heat, enhancing the scent. These are called your perfume points and include your hairline, elbows, ear lobes and knees. The benefits? You’ll have a gorgeous trail of scent that lasts way longer than usual, so you won’t have to worry about topping up throughout the day. That’s one less thing to have to think about.
WEAR ARMANI PERFUME POWDER
Is it a powder? Is it a perfume? Well, it’s a perfume in the form of powder, designed for easy use when you have very little time. Spraying your scent can be a faff when you’re in full mum mode, so we suggest you use Armani Si Perfume Powder. You simply circulate your fingers on the powder, then apply. The notes of blackcurrant liqueur, rose and freesia will make sure this becomes your new go-to, trust us.
CHOOSE AN UPLIFTING SCENT
Feeling drained and needing a burst of energy? Help is at hand in uplifting scents that have fresh, zesty notes to revitalise you. Our top picks? The Perfume Edit Citrus Fresco, with sweet lemon and heart of lavender (it’s unisex and vegan, too – winning!), and the new Mugler Angel Eau de Toilette, which is a blend of mandarin, berries and praline. Divine!
CARRY A TRAVALO TRAVEL ATOMISER WITH YOU AT ALL TIMES
All mums know life is unpredictable. One minute you’re rushing across town and the next, you’re doing the school run. We get it, it’s non-stop. So instead of having to spend time looking for your perfume, pump your favourite into a Travalo. This 5ml travel atomiser is the perfect on-the-go accessory, whether you’re hopping on a bus or flying for business. The best part? Its unique pressure system means it doesn’t leak. It’s a match made in mum heaven!
