5 Fragrance Hacks To Make Your Perfume Last Longer
Wearing fragrance is easy. But wearing fragrance well requires a little more finesse.
Let’s be honest, there is nothing better than someone telling you that you smell nice, especially after a long day at work or a long flight.
There is a right way to apply fragrance and with just a few simple tricks, you can make your perfume last longer.
1. SPRAY YOUR SCENT OF CHOICE ON OPTIMUM BODY PARTS
There are parts of your body that you can spray your perfume on to enhance the fragrance.
Pulse points and where the skin is thinner, such as the ears and wrists, intensify the smell.
Other warm spots like the inside of your elbow and behind your knees emit heat and help the fragrance develop faster.
Surprisingly, body parts in perpetual motion like ankles and belly buttons carry the fragrance throughout the day for a long-lasting effect.
2. STICK WITH LONG-LASTING SCENTS
Each perfume categories are classified according to their concentration of essences or aromatic oils they contain, thus impacting how long it lasts on the skin.
With differences in perfume concentration, an Eau de Toilette evaporates and fades away quickly.
Eau de Parfum lasts well and after the top notes have died away, the middle or heart notes become noticeable.
For an even more lasting scent, go for heart and base notes of ambers and woods of Eau de Parfum.
3. PREPARE YOUR SKIN
Moisturizing your skin with an unscented rich body lotion will increase the longevity of the perfume as oily complexion retains fragrances longer.
Applying Vaseline or rich body cream on your pulse points will allow you to lightly spray your scent on top.
According to experts, the best time to spray your perfume is just after your shower. Moisture gives your scent something to hold on to and creates a good base for your fragrance. Also, applying it before putting on your clothes will prevent the fragrance from staining delicate textile or jewelry.
4. DAB YOUR PERFUME
Instead of rubbing your perfume, dab it to keep the composition of your fragrance. If you are rubbing it, it will break the molecules of the perfume and change the smell throughout the day.
Ideally, it shouldn’t be touched! You can mist the perfume into the air and walk through it but the best thing to do is to let it be and not touch it after it was applied on your skin.
5. DO TOUCH-UPS THROUGHOUT THE DAY
Instead of carrying your entire perfume bottle with you, bring a smaller version in your handbag.
