Perfume bombs for your closet

Just the slightest hint of perfume can be ever so alluring. Here's is a trick you can use to imbue your clothes with a subtle scent that is attractive without being overwhelming:

Spray your favorite perfume onto a cotton ball or round and hide it where you keep your clothes. Just don't set it directly on any fabric or you may stain your favorite dress!

You can get creative in decorating your perfume bomb. I cut out two circles of fabric and stitched the cotton round between them. When I finally buy pinking shears I will clean up the edges.

What to do with those paper perfume tester strips you get at the department store? Place one in your coat pocket and one in your purse to catch an occasional whiff of fragrance while you're out and about.
