Heard of the perfume pen craze and don’t know where to start? Well, here’s exactly how to master the art…
What is a perfume pen?
Perfume pens are the latest beauty craze. And they’re exactly what they sound like: perfume in a pen! Super-helpful when you’re travelling or on the go, all you have to do is paint the scent onto your wrists and neck. Plus, they smell like your fave scent. Winning!
STEP 1: CHOOSE YOUR PERFUME PEN
Let’s start at the beginning. Here at The Perfume Shop, we have four incredible perfume pens. For YSL Black Opium fans, there’s the new Black Opium Click, and for you Mugler lovers, there’s Angel, Alien and Aura as a pen.
STEP 2: GET TO KNOW YOUR NEW BEAUTY ESSENTIAL
Now, the only difference between these (apart from the scent, of course) is that the YSL pen clicks at its end, which releases the gel-like formula (featuring notes of coffee, vanilla and orange blossom) which you can sweep on at once. When it comes to the Mulger pens, all you need to do is draw the scent (which is in a solid format) onto your skin. Easy peasy!
STEP 3: APPLY TO YOUR PERFUME POINTS
Thought perfume was just for your wrists and neck? Think again! Your perfume points are any areas that generate heat, and therefore create the perfect environment for your scent to last even longer and smell AMAZING! Try applying your pen to the nape of your neck, just on the hairline, and the heat and movement of your locks will create a trail of scent. Or, if you’re feeling super-adventurous, dab just below your earlobes where the skin is warmest. Prepare for the compliments to come flooding in.
STEP 4: GO ONE STEP FURTHER…LAYER!
That’s right! Spritz the matching scent, shower with the shower gel or apply hair mist to really standout. Here are our favourite layering must-haves…
