Smell Awesome Every Time With These 16 Perfume Hacks

Smell Awesome Every Time With These 16 Perfume Hacks  

You might have a thing about expensive perfumes but getting the most out of them is equally important. Here are 16 perfume hacks that will have you smelling like a million dollars all the time.

To make your expensive perfumes last longer, do not store them in toilets or bathrooms. Humidity, heat, and moisture break down the perfume molecules easily as well as lessen their quality.    sentosa team building  Store perfumes in cool dry and dark places, away from direct sunlight.

If you want the smell to last longer, rub a little petroleum jelly on your pulse points before spraying the perfume. The petroleum jelly will help to hold the perfume longer onto your skin, thus making the smell last.

Apply perfumes directly after a shower and before putting on clothes. The moisture on your body will help lock in the fragrance as well as save the perfume from staining the jewellery and clothes.

If you have dry skin, apply an unscented moisturiser before spraying the perfume. Oily skin tends to retain fragrance longer than dry skins.

Apply perfumes on pulse points and warm areas of the body. The skin on this areas is thin, thus letting the perfume diffuse across the entire body and making the fragrance last longer.

It is a common yet a wrong practice to rub wrists after applying perfume. This habit would make the top notes disappear faster. Instead, slightly brush the wrists with a mild touch.

Alcohol in the perfumes tends to dry out hair if sprayed directly. Instead, spray the perfume into a hairbrush and run in through your hair.

If you want a lighter smell, spray the perfume in the air and just walk in the mist. This will give you a hint of perfume without an overpowering smell.

Before going on a perfume-buying spree, familiarize yourself with common perfume terms such as body mist, eau de cologne, Eau de perfume, eau de toilette etc. or top notes, heart notes, base notes etc.

To make most out of even the last drop of your perfume, pour the last drops into an unscented lotion.

You can create your own custom scent by layering different perfumes. However, be sure to layer up perfumes of the same class rather than clashing ones. Try using bath oil followed with a deodorant of the same range and top it up with a strong fragrance.

When you do not like a fragrance, you can simply wipe it off with a makeup wipe.

If you want to sample fragrances, use business cards as blotter strips.

Perfumes can help you sleep better. Spray calmer notes of perfume on your pillows for a soothing fragrance.

To smell the top notes of a fragrance, smell it at least 5 minutes after it has been sprayed. To get quick touch ups of perfumes, spray on cotton swabs and carry with you in your handbag.


Scented, Spiritual Waters

Scented, Spiritual Waters  

Water is an important tool for magic rituals in many religions and spiritual beliefs. Although it sounds redundant, most cults, sects or spiritual beliefs use it to represent the cosmic element of water for purifying, scrying, and even starting wars. Considering that most of the time H20 is not the only element a spirit seeker needs, the water    team building singapore,    may go through a bit of a special transformation that requires flowers, herbs, sticks, and other natural resources to become colognes/perfumes or spiritual waters.

Some of the spiritual waters as we know it now were born commercially as colognes. Since all colognes/perfumes possess herbal bases, they rapidly gained a special symbolism in the spiritual world and spell-craft sometimes referring to some of them as spiritual waters.

These products are widely used in rituals of home protection, and spiritual cleaning. Spiritual waters are used to “work” the soul and mind, and they are so common to the eyes of Afro/Latinos that they may be worn on the person, placed on the altar as offerings, or sprinkled around the premises as needed. Commonly, men wear them as spiritual waters, scents, and as after shaves in many cases whilst women sprinkle them on theirselves as an attractive scent that comes along with protective powers.
These colognes or spiritual waters are inexpensive and easy to get in major pharmacies, esoteric shops, botanic and magic shops in many cities, but having the option of being done at home if the spirit seeker has the correct formula.

Florida Water

Florida Water is a staple for many of the religious ceremonies of Afro/Latino religious expressions or sects. Basically, it is cologne used for spiritual services, purification, cleansing, healing, jinx-breaking, protection from enemies, tranquility, peaceful home, dealing with the dead, safe travel, and psychism.

Florida Water is a 19th century formula for a commercially-prepared eau de toilet that blends an array of floral essential oils in a water-alcohol base. The name refers to the fabled Fountain of Youth said to have been located in Florida.

I prefer to buy the ones at stores, without saying a specific brand. But I found a formula to prepare this spiritual water from “Fortunes in Formulas For Home, Farm, and Workshop” edited by Garner D. Hiscox, M.E. and Prof. T. O’Conner Sloane, A.B., A.M., Em., Ph.D. (The Norman B. Henley Publishing Company, 1937):

– Oil of bergamot 3 fluid ounces

– Oil of lavender 1 fluid ounce

– Oil of lemon 1 fluid ounce

– Oil of cloves 1 1/4 fluid drachms

– Oil of cinnamon 2 1/2 fluid drachms

– Oil of neroli 1/2 fluid drachms

– Essence of jasmine 6 fluid ounces

– Essence of musk 2 fluid ounces

– Alcohol 8 pints

– Rose water 1 pint

Mix and pass it through a soft filter.

Kananga Water

Also a 19th century eau de toilet, Kananga Water is used for psychism, purification, and dealing with the dead. In Jamaica and the Caribbean, the Kananga water is known after the huge commercial Kananga plantations were established during the 19th century by the British colony.

The Kananga Water is built upon a foundation of essential oil of Cananga Odorata, also known as Ylang Ylang. It flowers consist of six narrow, twisted, drooping 3 – 4″ long petals. And the orange color of this spiritual water comes from its greenish yellow and orange petals.

The home made formula for this spiritual water comes from the same author lines above:


How Slot Cars Work

How Slot Cars Work  

Racing slot cars is an exciting hobby in which anyone can engage. Enthusiasts can be found all over the world and there are slot car racing clubs found in nearly every major city.  Pgslot   Most slot car racing clubs rules state that having fun is their primary objective. Slot car racing can be enjoyed by people of all ages, male or female.

Slot cars are very simple little devices. They are miniature models of real racing cars, usually on a 1:24 scale. Power is supplied to the slot car via metal strips which are situated next to the slot on the track. This is then picked up by contacts alongside something called the guide flag which is a blade that swivels and is located at the front of the car. This voltage is varied by a resistor found in the hand controller which the car’s “driver” holds. This forms the basic circuit. Other optional features like electronic devices are available.

HO cars work somewhat differently, but the premise is the same. The current is passed through metal rails which project just above the track’s surface and which are set out farther from the slot. The car has electrical contacts which are called “pickup shoes” which are mounted directly above the slot car’s chassis. A small round guide pin is usually used rather than a swiveling flag.

In many scale slot car racers, traction magnets are often used to give the car something called downforce. This helps the car maintain its relationship to the racing track when traveling at higher speeds. It provides greater enjoyment for the driver because the car will not slide or “drift” outward when racing. This provides a more realistic visual impact for drivers.

Slot cars are more than just mini versions of their full sized counterparts. Some are built from scratch and are beautifully hand-crafted renditions of their creator’s favorites. Some are even further modified to give them an even better performance edge. Other than the small swiveling flag there is nothing to keep the car from flying off the track when rounding curves. This is what gives the hobby such an exciting appeal to those who participate in it.

All slot cars are comprised of a body which is a solid molded piece of plastic that fits on top of the chassis. The car’s weight and distribution of that weight are of primary consideration when designing and building a slot car.Each car usually has an interior portion which is attached to the body as well. Each car will have an electric motor placed in either in its middle, front or rear. Racing car motors are rated according to the number of RPMs (revolutions per minute) they produce. This is determined by amount of voltage it receives.


Jewelry-Making DIY Basics – What is a Toggle?

Jewelry-Making DIY Basics – What is a Toggle?

To work effectively with friends, customers and suppliers, jewelry makers should learn the terminology of jewelry-making supplies.  The right terminology will help   Jewelry Making     define a need for the right jewelry closure when images are not available.

Jewelry toggles make up a second category of jewelry closures, along with lobster claw clasps, for handmade artisan jewelry, mass-market costume jewelry and fine jewelry.  You will see toggle closures on jewelry pieces from Tiffany and David Yurman down to special Mothers Day gifts that only a mother would wear.  Toggle clasps can fasten jewelry and enhance jewelry appearance.  Many jewelry-makers use toggles as closures for their necklaces, bracelets, and anklets.

What is a jewelry toggle?  (Jewellery toggle for you Brits!)

A jewelry toggle is a set of two pieces: a jewelry loop and a jewelry stick.  The jewelry loop is attached to one end of your jewelry chain, strung beads, seed bead weave, wire crochet, etc.  The jewelry stick is attached to the other end.  To hold the jewelry together around the neck, wrist or ankle, one inserts the jewelry stick through the jewelry loop; the stick then rests against the jewelry loop by gravity to hold the jewelry together.  If the jewelry piece does not have some slack, then the size is most likely too tight for long lasting jewelry.

Mechanics of Toggles

The shortest distance from your anchor point (often a ring soldered on or cast midway a metal toggle stick) to the end of the stick must be longer than the widest opening of your toggle loop.  Otherwise, the toggle stick will easily slip through the loop and the jewelry will drop off.  The toggle loop must be big enough to accommodate the smallest beads on the end attached to the toggle stick.  The stick must be pulled through the loop before it can be turned to rest against the toggle loop.  For that reason, many designers who use toggles will graduate end beads down in size.  A toggle that is heavy with respect to the beads and other components will help a bracelet to hang comfortably, with the toggle loop underneath the wrist.  Lighter weight toggles will let a bracelet rotate around the wrist as gravity drags on the heaviest parts of the bracelet.

Your “stick” may be as simple as a button with a shank used with a loop of seed beads on bead wire.  Your loop may be quite fancy, with “expandable” toggles of several rings attached together.   The rings on both the toggle loop and toggle stick should be firmly attached.  Cheaply manufactured toggles will often have rings that will twist off or deform or sticks that have no rigidity and bend under tension.

Fastening Toggles

When using chain, toggles will usually be fastened with open jump rings, split rings or link locks.  If one wishes to have soldered connections, then chain end caps will be used.  Jewelry designers will usually fasten toggles to bead wire projects using crimps.  The wire is strung through the toggle or stick loop, then doubled through the crimp before it is flattened into place.  Bead wire projects and fiber projects such as knotted silk jewelry pieces will often use clam shells or bead tips to make the transition from the knotted fiber to the toggle.  Inexpensive leather or fiber pieces may be knotted directly onto the toggle pieces with overhand knots.

Toggle Materials

Most toggles used in the United States will be made of cast or assembled metal alloys.  High end jewelry will use Platinum, Gold, Palladium and Sterling Silver toggles.  One will often see Stainless Steel, Surgical Steel and Titanium for edgy, contemporary jewelry.  Middle-market products will most likely use Gold-filled toggles and Sterling Silver toggles.  Plated toggles will feature brass, surgical steel or copper with plates of gold, silver. copper, gunmetal/”blackened nickel”, imitation rhodium, imitation silver and imitation gold.  Gold, silver, copper and brass may be oxidized or antiqued for the look of aged jewelry components.  Solid copper toggles have their enthusiasts for the alleged medical benefits.  Raw brass and lacquered brass toggles have their fans, too.  One may also find toggle sets of wood or stone.  Some toggles are decorated with crystals, cubic zirconia or gemstones.  Pot metal toggles will appear on only the very cheapest of jewelry.
