A Complete Guide to Apply The 5 Types of Perfumes

Hello, IMBBians!

With summers already at our doorsteps, we have started combating the most dreading issue – foul smelling body odour. This is one issue which makes us sweat even more. The embarrassment of smelly feet or body leaves many of us anxious and even more perspiring. While gym sessions do not mind much, afternoon outings often do get spoiled and dance parties become a nightmare! More than often, we end up putting the blame on our perfume. Have you ever wondered why the same perfume has such good market reviews but somehow doesn’t seem to be working with you? The possible reason is the discrepancy of the prescribed area of application and the area you are applying it on. It is very crucial to know that the perfume you know is of which type because the area of application varies accordingly! So, today I bring you a much-needed brief on which are the right places to apply the 5 kinds of perfumes that we all have.
