The recommended way to experience the fragrance or attar is to apply it to the inside of each wrist and dab a little behind each earlobe with the inside of your wrists before it dries. You may also apply to the back of each knee, inside of elbow joints and back of your neck so the fragrance envelops you.
A small drop is enough to be used as a fragrance on the body as the body heat only intensifies its smell. The attar will dry down in a few minutes after which you will experience its charming scent.
A few drops of attar can be added to water and used with aromatic vapour lamps. It can also be used to fragrance the potpourri.
Most synthetic perfumes have alcohol as common solvents which cause the perfume to evaporate as much as 10 - 15 times faster. This initially gives overwhelming first impression to human senses but it soon evaporates and loses power. Attar on the other hand lasts a long time due to its natural derivation.
