If you’re the kind of perfume wearer that spritzes here, there, and everywhere and hopes for the best, you could be doing your fragrance a disservice! But what if we told you there is a hack to make your signature scent smell stronger and last longer? Thanks to our pulse points (areas on the body where the blood is closest to the skin), you can naturally accentuate and diffuse your fragrance. But where are the perfume pulse points located? Join us as we reveal all!
Where are the perfume pulse points?
Wrists and elbows
You probably know to spray perfume on your wrists already, but what about the inside of your elbows? Both are involved in a lot of movement during the day, so spritzing in these areas helps to amplify your aroma each time you move. To get maximum impact, be sure to wait until your perfume dries on the skin before you bend your elbow.
Behind your knees
While it might sound odd, it’s a great place to spray the next time you’re sporting a pair of shorts, a skirt, or a dress. Why? Well, the skin behind our knees is usually very warm and soft, making it an ideal spot for perfume to radiate from. Plus, when you sit down, the aroma from your fragrance will rise upwards with it.
While this isn’t one of the perfume pulse points, it’s definitely worth a mention! Spritzing your fragrance in the dip in your collarbones will allow the aroma to waft upwards towards your nose – giving you waves of your favourite scent throughout the day. Plus, when someone leans in to talk to you (hot date, anyone?), you can treat them too.
If you’re spraying around your collarbones, you might wonder whether you can add a few spritzes to your hair too. We get to the bottom of it in our article: Can You Spray Perfume in Your Hair?

Alien Goddess by Mugler
For a fragrance with lasting quality a-plenty, look no further. Alien Goddess by Mugler takes all the floral fervour from Alien and adds delectable sweetness and warmth into the mix.

Simply spritz on your pulse points and watch as your scent naturally diffuses, right up until the sun has shone its last rays.

This elegant and seductive scent makes the ideal accessory for evening soirees. Whether it’s a romantic stroll along the riviera, a candle-lit dinner or a night at a jazz club, the compilation of delicate notes in Boss Bottled Night will not be out of place. Expect bitter birch leaves, lavender, jasmine, vanilla, and sandalwood. Spray once or twice on the wrists and collarbones for a long-lasting allure that lasts well into the night.
CK One by Calvin Klein
While you don’t get your five-a-day from CK One, you do get an addictive aroma of mandarin orange, papaya, and lemon instead! While it unfolds, you’ll journey through aromatic notes of nutmeg and jasmine before settling into a sensual musky base. It’s a captivating concoction that can be misted over your pulse points at any time of the day for ultimate impact.
