Let’s talk about your morning fragrance routine. You take a shower, roll on some antiperspirant and squirt some perfume behind your ears and/or onto your wrists.

I’m not wrong, am I?

Sadly, if you’re like the majority of women (myself included,) you’re doing the whole scent thing wrong. According to experts, your neck and wrists aren’t the only places you should be applying your perfume.

Watch:What kind of perfume sprayer are you? (Post continues after video.)

Apparently, you’re supposed to apply your fragrance—wait for it—in your belly button.

It may sound a little wasteful, but experts say it’s is a prime location for fragrance.

According to The Huffington Post, the belly button’s shape serves as a natural repository for scent.

Also, as with all pulse points on your body (that means the spots where your heart rate can be felt,) your body heat allows the scent to radiate optimally.

Celebs like Adriana Lima, as well as Liv Tyler—and her dad, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler—apparently swear by this trick.

“I put little drops on my fingers and put some under my arms and in my belly button,” Tyler tells Into The Gloss.

“My dad taught me that—if you put it where you heat up, the smell stays with you.”

So there you go. Expert beauty level, unlocked. (Post continues after gallery.)
