How to apply perfume to make it last longer

Hello everyone!


Applying your perfume is probably the fastest step in your beauty routine; a few sprays here and there, and you’re done. You may not even think about how to apply perfume, but you're probably applying it the wrong way. Yes, there is in fact a right and a wrong way to apply your fragrance. 


Here are some secrets to make your scents last:


Apply perfume right after taking your shower

Perfume is able to absorb better into the skin when it's warm and the pores are open. So it's a good idea to apply it post-shower once the skin is dry but still warm.


Apply perfume after using an unscented body oil or lotion

Dry skin doesn't hold perfume, as well as oily skin, does. The oilier your skin is, the better it holds scent. So layer on an unscented body oil or lotion, and then apply your perfume.


Make sure your deodorant is unscented too

When you're wearing a perfume, stick with an unscented deodorant to make sure the different aromas don't clash.


Try fragrance layering 

This consists of combining different fragrant products such as; body wash, deodorant, body lotion, perfume) either of the same fragrance or combining different ones. The more you layer the stronger the scent.


Apply perfume by spritzing, not misting

Many people spray perfume into the air and then walk through it. In my opinion, if you do that, you’re just wasting product. The scent will evaporate after a short amount of time. A direct spray onto bare skin is all you need.

Apply perfume on your pulse points

To make your scent last longer, choose a couple of pulse points. These are warm areas that’ll help diffuse the fragrance across your entire body. Your pulse points on your body include the inside of your wrists, inner elbows, your neck, below your belly button, behind your ear lobes, and the back of your knees. 


Don’t rub your wrists together after applying perfume

Don’t dab the fragrance on your wrists after spraying. Dabbing perfume on your wrists and then rubbing them together, will cause the scent to disappear faster than intended.


Spray your clothes with perfume

Don’t just stick to spraying perfume on your body; spray it on your clothes too. Clothing fibres are able to hold in scents for a very long time.


Apply perfume on your hairbrush

Spraying an alcohol-based fragrance directly onto your hair will dry it out, so instead spray the fragrance on your brush before running it through your hair. This way, your hair will be lightly scented and undamaged.


Don't store perfume in your bathroom

Heat, light, and humidity will break down the perfume and lessen the quality and intensity of the fragrance. Instead, store your perfume bottles in a cool, dry place.
