Micellar water can help to remove the scent. Just soak a cotton pad and apply to the area where you spritzed the perfume. It should lift the fragrance and you will no longer have the unwanted perfume cloud around you. Think of it as a quick and easy spot clean for fragrances you don’t want to have on your skin.
