Make The Most Of Your Natural Fragrance

The first thing I noticed when I switched from using synthetic fragrances to all completely natural was the sillage and amount of time the fragrance lasts on the skin. Below are a few tricks that help me get the most out of my essential oil fragrances!

Go Fragrance-Free

Using naturally fragranced or fragrance-free products whenever helps people become less nose blind and more sensitive to natural smells surrounding them. It’s nice when you can actually smell and identify the plants you’re walking by :)


Your skin drinks in ingredients post-shower and when skin is moisturized, the fragrance oil sticks more easily. Applying perfume after washing up ensures application on clean, exfoliated skin that will allow the essence to last longer. 


Mix a few drops of the Pure Essential Oil into an unscented lotion or oil of your choice. Apply a diy Le Petit Skunk body lotion using the PEO blend post-shower for added benefits.

Apply on Pulse Points

Natural perfumer // aromatherapist, Ixchel Leigh, and the nose behind Le Petit Skunk taught me that pulse points on your body are slightly hotter so the higher temperature so adding your parfum to these areas diffuses the fragrance further.

Don’t Crush The Top Notes

Press the fragrance into the skin. Never rub your wrists together because this crushes the top notes and actually changes the composition of the fragrance.

Base Notes

These are the last fragrance notes identifiable on the skin. Le Petit Skunk was specifically formulated with tenacious essential oils that have more pungent lasting power.
