A fragrance that suits your personality can be your best accessory. Unfortunately, the best-smelling perfumes can be a little pricey, hence why it’s important to make them last. Here are our best tips for minimizing spritzing and keeping your signature smell for longer.
Apply Vaseline First
Before you apply your perfume, rub vaseline to the area you are spraying onto. The ointment clings to the fragrance so the smell will last longer.
Apply to Your Skin
In the movies, women spray their perfume as a mist and then walk through it. In reality, this is a waste of scent. Your perfume will last longer if you apply it directly to your skin.
Target Pulse Points
Pulse points are warm points that will cause the fragrance to diffuse across your body. Your wrists, neck, back of your knees and elbows are all good choices. Spraying here will help your scent last longer throughout the day.
Keep Your Bottles in a Cool, Dry Place
Keep your bottles somewhere cool and dry i.e. not your bathroom cupboard. The heat and humidity breaks down the perfume which affects the quality of your fragrance over time.
Spray After A Shower
After a shower, your skin contains the most moisture. This gives the scent something to cling onto so it lasts longer throughout the day.
Don’t Rub Your Wrists Together!
A common mistake is to spray onto the inside of the wrist and then dab the wrists together. This actually causes the scent to disappear faster which means you’ll have to spray again sooner.
