How to smell good without a perfume
TAKE A DEEP SHOWER
The first advice is to not only take your regular shower (that I assumed is kind of obvious) but take a deep shower at least once a week.
What is a deep shower?
It’s a shower routine with a few extra steps, like deep exfoliating your body or taking a bath with salt and applying any other steps beyond shampoo that ensure extra body cleaning.
I have heard that taking a bath with apple cider vinegar could help to liberate your body toxins, the right way to do that is applying 1 cup of apple cider vinegar and taking a 15-30 minutes bath.
FRESH AND CLEAN CLOTHES
Good smelling and clean clothes will result in a fresh and clean smell all day for you!
It’s super normal that the clothes take a bad smell after using them, so make sure you have the used clothes separate from your clean clothes, so you don’t wear the used clothes by accident.
WASH YOUR CLOTHES REGULARLY
2-3 times a week, depending on your quantity of clothes, it will be good to ensure you always have clean and fresh clothes to wear and smell good all day, but the way you wash your clothes has a lot to do with how they smell.
I recommend using a good smelling detergent like this Intense fresh detergent every time you wash your clothes and choose your favorite smell because it really affects and can smell that way all day.

How to make your clothes smell good all-day
Okay, so we know we need to wash the clothes and wash them with a good detergent, but no matter what you do, they can keep the smell all day?
DON’T FORGET THE FABRIC SOFTENER
Try using a fabric softener! It’s the best way to maintain a good smell on clothes all day.
I personally love those that contain Lavanda, baby smell, or smell fresh.
USE ODOR NEUTRALIZER
You don’t need to wash your clothes every time you use them if you don’t use them enough, just a short amount of time or the clothes didn’t get dirty. But they don’t smell fresh anymore, right? I’m IN LOVE WITH THE FEBREZE ODOR NEUTRALIZER!
It’s something like clothes fragrance but kills the bad smell or not-so-fresh smell that your clothes have in case of an emergency!
How to always smell good
CHOOSE THE RIGHT FRAGRANCE FOR YOUR SKIN
I truly believe that you need to match your fragrance and your own natural smell needs to mix well with the perfume to make it work for you and last in your body all day!
How to find your perfect fragrance?
- You can try the tester at your nearest store and smell and try the fragrance that you liked the most.
- Find some perfume that you like and buy it in the travel-sized version; that way, you can try if it works with your skin, and if not, you’re not wasting money with the full version.
APPLY YOUR PERFUME THE RIGHT WAY
The best way to apply fragrance so it lasts longer and keeps your smelling good all day is to concentrate the perfume on your pulse points.
Where are they?
They are located on your wrists, inner elbows, below the belly button, behind your ears, and knees. All these areas are the warmest areas of your skin, and that will make a natural scent diffuser for your fragrance.
How to apply fragrance? Take some fragrance with your fingers, and without making any friction on it, apply it directly to your pulse points. (wrists, inner elbows, below the belly button and behind ears and knees)
CHOOSE THE RIGHT DEODORANT
Go for a fresh-smelling deodorant, preferably with a roll-on that does not contain aluminum.
Aluminum has nothing to do with smell good with all to do with avoiding breast cancer!
this is my favorite:
Apply your deodorant right after a shower and take it with you all day in case you need a retouch. If you feel like some clothes are constantly smelling bad, it could be that you didn’t pick the right deodorant for you. Try to change the brand or the scent!
TAKE A TRAVEL SIZE FRAGRANCE IN YOUR BAG
Even the most expensive high quality fragrance is limited and it might not last all day long, so the best hack is to always prevent this and make sure you will still smell amazing! How? Take a travel-size fragrance in your bag so you can get a retouch after a couple of hours.
You can vert some full sized fragance in a travel size reusable containers like these:
USE A LONG-LASTING BODY MIST
I love body mist! They make you feel so fresh after applying them because literally they are water-based so you get a fresh mist and improve your smell at the same time. They are perfect for summer!
MIX YOUR PERFUMES
This hack consists of taking 2 or more of your favorite fragrances and mixing them. How?
Spray them and then walk through them, so they get everywhere on your body and clothes.
SPRAY YOUR CLOTHES
The fragrance will actually last longer on your clothes than in your body, so try to avoid applying it on your skin (except on your pulse points) and apply your perfume all over your clothes.

What to use to smell good all day?
USE ESSENTIAL OILS
Don’t love perfumes so much? You can try using essential oils to smell naturally fresh!
Try using an essential oil necklace diffuser or bracelet diffuser, so you apply the best essential oil scent, and you can smell it all day. Some people use this trick not only for smell good but for other purposes like relaxing with lavender or reminiscent of something with a particular essential oil scent.
USE SCENTED LOTIONS
Another great way to look amazing all day is to moisturizer your body with a fresh and nice smell lotion, that way you will apply a nice fragrance to your skin while you take care and moisturize it.
IMPORTANT: stay away from scented skincare! Incorporate to your skincare routine, only fragrance-free products because it’s not healthy for your face skin using fragrance every day.
APPLY SHOE SPRAY
All the shoes tend to smell bad, and that’s normal, but we can avoid that nasty smell with foot deodorant, on powder, or spray.
Apply it every time you change your shoes.
BAKING SODA HACK!
Do you have a bad smell when you wear a specific shirt? For some reason, there are certain types of clothes that make you smell worse than others.
How can you repair this? Apply baking soda in the cloth armpits area and leave for one day. After that, wash it, and that will kill and remove any bacteria that was causing that bad smell!
This hack also works for bad-smelling shoes that can’t smell good no matter what shoe deodorant you try!

How to smell good naturally?
It’s not always about the fragrance, smell good all day is about being healthy and do some good practices to smell fresh and clean every day naturally.
EAT HEALTHY AND BALANCED
We really are what we eat, and in this case, we smell what we eat! I know this sounds disgusting, but it is true. Eat more healthy and balanced foods like vegetables and fruits, and you will see the difference.
DRINK MORE WATER
This is super important. Drinking enough Water liberate toxins from your body, improving your body health and even your smell! Try always to drink water, avoid sugar-based beverages like soda, teas, or any other, and give it a chance only to drink water all day. This will drastically impressively improve your skin and body.
How to smell good down there
The best way to keep your genitals smelling good is by eating a healthy and balanced diet, drinking enough water, doing exercise regularly, and having a good hygienic routine that involves avoiding perfumed soaps, deodorants, and any other product that can affect your natural PH.
EAT AND AVOID CERTAIN FOODS
You won’t believe me, but basically, you just need to pay attention to what you eat, and there are some recommended foods to eat and some to avoid getting down there to smell like a snack. And here they are:
- RED MEATS
- SUGAR (on food and drinks)
CHANGE YOUR UNDERWEAR CONSTANTLY
I think this is kind of obvious, but don’t forget to change your underwear every day or two times a day, even on those days that you are not in the mood for a shower!
PLEASE NOTE: It’s natural not to smell like flowers all the time, and anything that makes you down there smells that way will damage your natural PH and health. So stay away from that kind of deodorant! Consult your doctor if you have a constantly bad smell.
How to make hair smell good all-day
Check these easy tips to walk in front of others, and while your hair moves, you spread all the nice and natural scent from your hair!
WASH YOUR HAIR WITH THE RIGHT SHAMPOO
I take care of my hair like crazy! And I don’t like bad-quality shampoos on it. I recommend getting
paraben-free shampoo with a nice fragrance and using a good scented conditioner after every wash. That way, you take care of your hair and add a nice smell at the same time.
USE A FRESH SCENTED DRY SHAMPOO
It’s essential to use dry shampoo the days between hair wash day, and I recommend to use dry shampoo sprays with fragrance for two reasons:
1. Make sure that your natural oiliness doesn’t appear and maintain your hair looking clean and fresh
2. Add that fresh and good fragrance that dry shampoo has and improve your smell to make it last all day even without perfume.

APPLY FRAGRANCE TO YOUR HAIRBRUSH
This quick tip will diffuse a nice fragrance through your hair while you brush it like usual! Don’t apply too much perfume because it’s not a super healthy practice to do if you want to maintain healthy hair and avoid damaging it.
How to make my breath smell good all day
If you want to keep smelling good all day, your breath is essential to smell amazing as well! Here are a few tips you need to try for the best fresh and nice breath smell.
THE RIGHT BRUSH TEETH ROUTINE
Brush your teeth at least twice a day, but the best practice is to brush your teeth every time you eat something other than just plain water. After you finish your food, wait 30 minutes and then brush your teeth with fresh toothpaste. Don’t forget your tongue!
USE A MOUTH RINSE
This will ensure extra freshness and will clean your teeth more! You can also get a travel size mouth rinse and take it with you everywhere you go for a quick refresher
CHEW SUGARLESS GUM
It’s important to select a sugarless gum because sugar is super bad for good smell! and also will deteriorate your teeth more than it will help your breath.
If you don’t like to chew gums (like me!) you can try a mouth spray, to refresh your breath any time during the day.
VISIT YOUR DENTIST
It’s essential to visit your dentist if you present bad breath constantly even if you change your diet! Also, it’s recommended to do a deep clean with a professional every six months at least.
Final thoughts on how to smell good and fresh all day
Smell good. It’s more than only using a fragrance, and this could impact so much in your social relationships. A person with a bad smell can be difficult to be with, but a person with a nice smell is super attractive and nice to socialize with!
You can now make sure you will smell amazing all day long everywhere you go with these easy tips.
