Where should you dab your perfume? Behind the ears? How old-fashioned!

Grandma may have thought the pulse points were the places to discreetly apply her scent, but today we are advised to apply perfume lavishly on parts of the body exposed by modern fashions, such as behind the knees, trickled down your back when wearing a halter neck or a bikini, or on a tissue tucked into your bra.
