5 Ways to make your Fragrance Last Longer

1. Apply on Moisturized Skin:

Applying on moisturized skin is the key to long lasting fragrance. There are several ways to ensure the the skin is moisturized. For example, you want to ensure that you are using a hydrating lotion.

 

2. Apply to Pulse Points:

Pulse points are areas on your body where the blood vessels are closest to the surface, producing more heat. The warmth intensifies the fragrance and helps it project. Common pulse points include the wrists, neck, behind the ears, inside the elbows, and behind the knees. Apply the fragrance directly to these points for maximum impact.

 

3. Layer Fragrance Products:

Using matching or complementary fragrance products can help prolong the scent. Start with a scented body wash or shower gel, followed by a scented lotion or cream. Finally, apply the fragrance itself. Layering the products builds up the scent and helps it adhere to your skin, enhancing its longevity.

 

4. Avoid Rubbing or Smudging:

When applying fragrance, resist the urge to rub your wrists together or smudge the fragrance on your skin. These actions can break down the fragrance molecules and cause them to evaporate faster, resulting in a shorter-lasting scent. Instead, let the fragrance dry naturally on your skin.

 

5. Use Long-Lasting Fragrance Concentrations:

Fragrances come in different concentrations, each with varying longevity. Perfume extract or parfum has the highest concentration of fragrance oils, followed by eau de parfum, eau de toilette, and eau de cologne. Opting for perfumes or eau de parfums will generally provide longer-lasting scents compared to lighter concentrations like eau de toilette or eau de cologne.

Remember, the longevity of a fragrance also depends on its quality, ingredients, and individual body chemistry. It’s a good idea to test different fragrances and see which ones work best for you in terms of longevity and overall scent.
