Forever Fragrant 

Make the most of your perfume. 

Apply Bliss Naked Body Butter ($29) to clean skin before spraying on your new spring scent. The fragrance-free lotion won’t interfere with your perfume, and your freshly moisturized skin will better absorb and maintain the scent. 

Available at Nordstrom, 700 Fairmount Ave., Towson, 410-296-2111.
