Applying perfume is the simplest of matters — simply spray, dab, or in the case of a solid perfume compact, swipe. (Do avoid rubbing the wrists together after application, to prevent "crushing" the scent).
Some women enjoy spritzing their perfume into the air and then walking through it. While this does work, it also lets quite a bit of the fragrance go to waste, so it's not the best method if you're on a budget.
Always apply perfume before putting on your clothes and jewelry.
Some fragrances will leave permanent stains on fabrics, metals, and pearls. (If you want to risk perfuming your clothing — say, spraying some scent on a scarf — be sure to test it on a hidden area of the fabric first, and spray lightly).
