WHY YOU DISTORTED YOUR FRAGRANCE
Personalization is a growing movement and this concept allows people to express their unique taste and individuality.
Although we want to lead noses to new scented areas, we also want to encourage experiments.
The traditional western way to wear perfume can be applied one by one. However, this is not at all the norm in the Middle East.
In the Middle East, perfume is very personal – it's all about layered scents, so your scent is completely different from someone else's.

It is more than just part of a beauty ritual – fragrance is a social story and brings joy and a story to every household and every person who visits.
After dinner, the host family often presents a tray of perfumes while serving the coffee, which guests can mix to create a unique scent to mark the memory of their visit.
HOW TO LOW SMELLS LIKE A PRO
The most important thing to remember with layers is that it's all about playing and finding different combinations that you love.
Normally you should spray your scents in order of intensity, using the lightest, most delicate scents at the end – you can do it, so don't be afraid to break the rules.
The first scent that should be your layer is an intense scent, which is then combined with lighter tones.
A basic tone of old would, for example, be an addition to a middle note of rose, embellished with a top note of jasmine.
If you are new to practicing layering, we recommend staying within the scent families of flowers, oriental, fresh, and citrus tones.
Although, scents such as vanilla, musk and most citrus scents form low and blend beautifully, look for scents that contain these scents or with a common tone, because they are complementary.
HOW TO MAKE YOUR SMELL MORE LONGER
Vaseline offers the perfect basis to extend the life of your favorite scents. Apply it to any area where you would spray perfume and accompany your favorite scent.
I always put it on my knees, my wrists and my neck. It lasts for hours and helps you to smell beautiful all day long. If you don't have Vaseline, any moisturizer would work.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME PERFUME APPLICABLE?
You must apply perfume immediately after showering. If you apply your perfume to your body when it is still moist, the moisture will retain the scent so that it will last a whole lot longer – plus you will not stain any of your clothing.
The KAYALI range, available in four scents, elixir, vanilla, citrus and musk, starts from £ 67 and is available at various retailers, including Selfridges and Cult Beauty
WHY WOULD YOU EMBRACE YOUR SWEAT?
Fighting, masking or overpowering your natural scent is tempting, but incorporating active sweat into how you uniquely wear your perfume is a great way to show a unique scent.
Scent combines with your clothes, your house scent, the smell of the city and especially your sweat, and everything mixes and becomes more intense as the day progresses.
Everyone feels like a hot, sweaty mess, so it's all about working with your sweat to create a unique scent instead of trying to mask it.
Sweat becomes a fact of life: the summers get hotter, which means that we all sweat more.
At the same time, people tend to have natural deodorants that often leave more of a residual sweat odor than conventional deodorants, so sweat becomes part of our daily reality.
In the midst of all this, we realize as a society that sweating is a natural function, and people will have a touch of & # 39; au natural & # 39; accept more, so make sure your perfume works with your fragrance, to get a new layer from you.
SPRAY YOUR PERFUME AT THIS UNUSUAL PLACE
If you perfume your brush with a few perfumes, the scent will spread through your hair as you brush through it.
Your hair will retain the scent all day long, but it will not cause damage or dehydration as it might be if you spray it directly onto your hair.
Mona advised newcomers to stay within the scent families of flowers, oriental, fresh and citrus tones when they learn to make layers
