10 Ways To Make Your Perfume Last Longer
The invention of perfumes goes back to Ancient Babylon, where a few essential oils were extracted an...
1) Choose The Right Fragrance
Flowery & fruity fragrances tend to be milder and hence do not last for long. So try choosing a musky fragrance, which tends to last longer than any other fragrance types.
2) Layer Your Fragrances
By layering, I mean use several layers of scents. Use an anti-perspirant, a deodorant and then the perfume. Make sure all the products you use belong to the same fragrance family.
3) Right Out Of The Shower
When you're just out after a steaming shower, the pores on your skin are wide open. If you spray the perfume right out of the shower, it tends to get absorbed deeper and lasts longer.
4) Moisturize Your Skin
If you have oily skin, you're lucky here. Perfumes last longer on moisturized skin when compared to dry skin. Make sure your skin is nice & supple before you use your perfume. This can surely make it last longer.
5) Use On Your Skin
Most of us think perfume has to be used on our clothing. But contrary to the belief, it lasts longer when used on your skin. Use if before you put on your clothes as the warmth of your skin makes it last longer.
6) Pulse Point Application
Use your perfume on your pulse points. Pulse points are the points of warmth on your body and warmth is what encourages your perfume to last longer. A few common pulse points are wrists, base of the throat, behind ear, inside elbow and behind the knee.
7) Keep The Nozzle Away
Always keep the nozzle of the perfume 6 inches away when spraying. This helps to get the right amount of perfume, which in turn gives a long lasting aroma.
8) Spray It On Your Hair Brush
This one is weird but there is no harm in trying as this works really well. Spray the perfume on your hair brush and comb your hair with it once. This will help the perfume aroma stay longer.
9) Never Rub
I'm not sure who spread the word, but do not rub the perfume after application. Rubbing crushes the perfume molecules, thus making the scent disappear in the air.
10) Store It Right
Store your perfumes the right way. Make sure you keep the bottles away from humidity, heat and light. Storing the perfumes in a cool & dry place helps to keep its scent longer.
