Fragrance can go a long way in making an impression. Too strong of a scent, and you'll overwhelm your guests. However, if you skip the fragrance step altogether, you'll miss out on an opportunity to add sophistication and warmth with a signature scent. The perfect way to walk the line? Apply a solid fragrance in lieu of a traditional liquid perfume.

Keep reading for advice on where to apply and which scents to pick for the seasons. With a few quick tips and tricks, you'll definitely be winning the fragrance game at your next party!

Where to Apply Fragrance

For a hint of fragrance that isn't off-putting to your guest, you need to know where to apply your fragrance. That way, when you're busy hugging your guests hello, they'll smell a hint of a pleasant scent. And when you sit down at dinner, they'll be focused on the aromas of your delicious meal, not the perfume you're wearing. 

So what's the best way to achieve this balance? Take your solid fragrance and rub a tiny bit on your pulse points. This includes the sides of your neck and your wrists. Since there's plenty of warmth in these areas, your scent will last without becoming overwhelming. 

Picking a Scent for the Season

Curious about what scent to wear? It's really up to you, so find one that you love! However, if you're looking for inspiration, look to the seasons. For fall and winter, choose warm/spicy scents. Consider vanilla, for example. It's a classic for a reason!

For spring and summer, keep it light and fresh! Get inspired by the flowers around you and pick a favorite floral scent. From sweet pea to rose balm, you'll impress your guests by picking a scent that expresses the best of each season.
