I always apply mostly deodrant and sometimes perfume, when I am going out. I want to smell good as we will be going out and have to mingle with people. They should feel good in our presence. They should not shrink their eyes. How about you, do you apply perfume or deodrant when you are going out?

Hi I do apply perfume while going out and hand and body lotion immediately after taking bath for feeling fresh. Sometimes, I use deodarant instead of hand and body lotion. Instead of perfume, sometimes I use Javvadu, a sort of powdered perfume, to be mixed with rose water or plain water and apply on hands and neck and its fragrance lasts longer, to wit, till night.

But javvadu will be like a paste is it not. Will it be absorbed or will it remain like a pack or paste on the hands?

javadu perfume powder - javadu powder
javadu is not a paste. It is a powder. In ancient times, the Minors (rich and famous), rajas, and all the big shots, and now a days, the Nadaswaram playing people, will mix this powder in sandal paste and apply on their hands,forehead and chest to give great smell. Since I don't want sandal paste to be visible, mix the powder with water. Punugu is also a perfume which is in the paste form and is obtained from a civet cat.

Even I have seen some people not using talcum powder or perfumes. It is individual's preference.

Hi, Buchi_bulla. Yes, I do apply deodorant when I am going somewhere. I never walk out of the house without making sure that I have put some on. I love wearing perfume, but I have to get them out of storage so that I can begin to use them again. I love smelling good to. It makes me feel beautiful when I can smell nice around many people.

Yes. When you are among people, you should smell good. They should not feel delicate to stand next to you.

Hi. Deodorant is a must in a tropical country like ours, the Philippines. Our country's warm weather could make us perspire very easily. Daily use of deodorant could prevent unnecessary smell or body odor. I rarely use perfume.

When we perspire more, I feel deo is better to use instead of perfume.

Good Evening friend. Deo gives a fresh feeling to us. Sometimes when I am working hard and feeling tired, I apply little deo even at home and I feel fresh. Have a good day.

Yes. Apart from good smell emanating from us and keeping our surroundings pleasant, perfume and deodrant will increase our self-esteem. May God be with you friend.
