Forget about stopping to smell the roses, try smelling like one. The best way to smell good is to really understand your body. It is important to learn how your body will react to different scents.

Using fragrance is a known solution for odor and for centuries, people have used aromatic herbs and oils to smell good. We are big proponents of using natural fragrances as your go-to. When faced with essential oil fragrance vs synthetic option, your best bet is to opt for scents created as close to nature as possible.

Here are 10 other tips for smelling good all day

  1. Water, Water, Water
    Water keeps your body running normally and is essential to good hygiene. Water dilutes scents that may otherwise not be so pleasant — like garlic, onions and coffee breath. We recommend drinking a minimum of 90 fluid ounces per day.
  2. Get Out of Hair
    Spray your hairbrush with your favorite fragrance, not your hair! Depending on the fragrance, spraying your hair directly can damage roots.
  3. Tight Quarters
    Once a week, spray your clothes inside your closet. This helps set the scent in your closet and leave the entire room smelling sweet any day of the week.
  4. When You’re Exposed
    Because air rises, this is a great way to subtly smell nice all day. Lather your stomach with scented serum or lotion. The scent will rise and close encounters make for a better experience.
  5. Spray for Secure
    There is nothing like taking off your shoes after a long day at the office or pulling your sneakers off after the gym and heavy pungent smell hitting the air. Take heed and try this trick before going bare, because even if your feet don’t typically sweat, sometimes shoe material can produce an unwanted pH reaction. Purchase natural odor balls and place in shoes regardless if you have sweaty feet or use shoe spray. This tip will help shoes smell fresh and transfer to your feet as well.
  6. Naturally Lathering
    Go back to basics when blocks of soap were sold by the pound and fancy boxes were reserved for holiday gifting. Soap can boost your scent profile and can help add a fresh accent to your look. Some soaps can leave behind more than just a scent, so make sure you are using a quality, natural soap bars. It’s so important to buy soap that contains natural oils and scents. Our soap bars do just that. A good natural soap can help prevent your dry skin as well.
  7. Layering with Lovely
    Make sure your lotion doesn’t mask the perfume and vice-versa. Layering your clothes and scents is something to consider. If you’re wearing a sweatshirt, take the time to spray your fragrance on the mid-layer. The scent won’t get rubbed off by a jacket or mashed by two layers on top. This is where heat forms. By spraying an inner t-shirt or tank, you will help to enhance the perfume.
  8. Scenting the Sheets
    To smell good 24/7, spray your bedding essentials with a spritz or two of your favorite and relaxing perfumes. This not only gives your bedding a scent but also can aid with relaxation, depending on the type of perfume.
  9. Beautify with Oils
    Adding a drop or two of body oil to your routine will not only keep you smelling good after a shower, but also helps boost your overall shine too. NURTURE Balancing Serum is a freshly prepared, botanical infusion of soothing blooms of Calendula and Chamomile, along with skin-balancing, plant-based oils. This light, vitamin-rich serum restores youthful glow, seals moisture in and nurtures the skin.
  10. Cotton Balls
    Sometimes, taking the entire bottle of perfume or serum is a little difficult. Try spraying your favorite scent on cotton balls and placing them in a plastic bag in your purse. When you are feeling you need a pick me up, pull out a cotton ball and dab your pulse points to freshen your scent.
