The Fragrance Foundation offers a wealth of information related to the world of perfume. In their Fragrance Tips, we read:

- For a long-lasting effect, fragrance should be layered all over the body, starting with toilet water or eau de parfum...

I really like this idea of the
scent circle.It has been my experience that an arm's length of scent radiation is just about right, but it is not easy to achieve. How many of us have had the unfortunate experience of being in the presence of someone with a scent circle MUCH larger than an arm's length? As in the size of a room? Conversely, sometimes a fragrance clings so closely that we are not aware of it on others even when sitting next to them.
What do you consider to be the perfect size for a scent circle? And what fragrance have you found that achieves this goal?
