Most fragrances, especially the cheaper ones, may not last the whole day—some will only last for a few hours. But you can actually make any perfume last longer, as long as you do it the right way. There are perfume application secrets that are only known to some people and these tips that you can make your perfume last all day long without the need of splashing it all over you.
Learn more about these tips below and wear your favorite fragrance the whole day!
1. Spray Your Perfume on Hot Areas
Choose the “hot” areas of your skin as perfumes are stimulated by warm skin. Make sure to spray perfume on the areas where the veins of the body are the closest to your skin. The best areas to apply your perfume are wrists and ankles, pulse areas of the neck, upper fold of the elbow, and around the waist. Perfumes can also be spritzed on a hairbrush as the scent particles cling to hair well.
2. Rub Vaseline Before Wearing Perfume
Before putting on your perfume, rub a little Vaseline on your wrists then spritz on your perfume. Vaseline will hold on to the scent and help it last all day long.
3. Moisturize Your Skin First As Well
Dry skin does not retain perfume the way moisturized skin does. If you have dry skin, apply an unscented moisturizer and then put on your perfume to help lock it in and stay put all day long.
4. Timing Is Also Essential
There’s actually the perfect time to apply perfume. That’s when you come out of the shower and before you put your clothes on. When your body is damp, it retains the scent much more and for much longer. It’ll also prevent the fragrance from staining your clothes and jewelry.
5. Buy the Right Kind of Perfume
Familiarize yourself with the common terms so that you understand what the salesperson is selling you when you go to buy a perfume. Choose the intensity of perfume that you want. If the scent is concentrated, it’ll last throughout the day.
6. Layer Up Your Favorite Fragrances
You can create your custom fragrance by layering up your favorite ones. Spray a few fragrance blotters with different scents and see if they complement each other or not. Once you’re satisfied with the results, spray the stronger scent first and top it off with the lighter one so that the stronger scent doesn’t overpower it.
You can also use a nice smelling shower gel, a nice smelling shampoo, a deodorant and then your favorite perfume to create a more potent effect that will last all day long.
7. Maintaining Your Fragrance All Throughout the Day
You can spray cotton swabs and keep those in your purse for quick touch ups throughout the day. Cotton swabs absorb the scent and hold it for a very long period. It is much easier to carry cotton swabs in your purse than the whole bottle of expensive perfume.
Now you can smell amazing all day long without wasting that precious fragrant water that you paid so much for. Using these tips and tricks you can increase the longevity of your scent and get your money’s worth.
