Making Perfume Last Longer

Apply Perfume So It Lasts

Fragrance will last longer on skin that is well-moisturized, because oils on the skin trap the fragrance notes and make them last longer. concentrate on pulse points like your wrists, neck, between your breasts and even behind knees. Don’t rub wrists together after applying fragrance as it breaks down the oils. also try a mist of fragrance through the hair. Layering the scent in different forms will help it last, these products can be costly.

More tips:
  • Apply perfume soon after a shower or bath as your pores are open now and will absorb it. So, while you are still undressed after a bath, spray or dab on perfume so it works better.

  • If you have oily skin, apply a little petroleum jelly to those parts of your body where you intend applying perfume. The perfume will cling to the jelly and so increase its lasting power.

  • Apply spray from the ankles upwards because perfume rises and usually lingers longer.

  • Do not use your fingers to apply it but put it on a cotton ball and then dab it on your skin. Alternatively, use an atomizer.

  • Hold the spray bottle about 20 cm away from your body and spray an even amount on a large part of your body so that it lasts longer.

  • For long-lasting effect, apply perfume on your pulse points-sides of the neck, wrists, insides of elbows, between the breasts, ankles and behind the knees.

  • Do not rub your wrists after applying perfume as it will not increase the fragrance but distort the notes that make up the perfume.

Indulge in luxurious perfumes and body lotions and see how each day can feel like a very special occasion.
