We have the hacks to make a perfume last longer and make you smell stronger all day.
If you genuinely want your perfume to last long, follow these fragrance hacks as suggested.
There is always a right time for everything. As per professional experts, a perfect time to apply perfume is after a bath. Due to the presence of moisture, perfume gets something to hold on to and boosts its staying power. That is why, when you spray perfume right after your workout, it smells stronger and for a longer duration.
Another way is to dampen your skin with unscented moisturiser or lotion before spraying perfume. Make sure it is unscented otherwise, the two fragrances will get mixed, and that may not smell good.
Hydrated skins hold fragrances for a longer duration than dry skin. That is why your hair holds the fragrance for a longer time than your skin due to the scalp oiliness.
Your clothing fabrics can hold the odour for a longer time. Sometimes, even after washing, the fragrance stays on clothes. Therefore, do not only spray it on bare skin. Put it on your clothes as well.
Be it any fragrance, it reacts to heat and makes it last longer. Applying on pulse points can help release a good odour throughout the day. Try spraying on the neck nape, inside the elbows, wrists, and the back of your knees.
Before spritzing perfume, applying petroleum jelly on pulse points (neck nape, inside the elbows, wrists, back of the knees) can be an add-on for long-lasting fragrance. It gives a moisturising lock to the scent.
Most of us rub our wrists and nape of the neck after spritzing perfume on these points. It is a myth that it helps the odour to stay for a longer time. Rather it breaks down the perfume chemicals, and the fragrance fades away faster. Avoid rubbing after spraying perfume.
As we said, perfumes stay longer on hair. However, applying perfumes directly damages hair due to the presence of alcohol. You can apply perfume to your hairbrush and then comb your hair with them to scent your hair.
To boost the fragrance power, it is good to purchase complementary fragrances. They mix well and make the fragrance stronger. Many brands offer such fragrances as combos for your convenience.
If you want your clothes to smell naturally as your favourite fragrance. Spray your perfume in your wardrobe frequently as we already know, clothes hold on to the scents for a longer time.
Now that you have got ample tips and hacks of how to apply perfume to last longer. It’s time to discuss some storage and maintenance tips to boost their odour.
It is written on all perfume bottles too. However, we always skip on this. Maximum times we store our fragrance bottles in the bathroom where the temperature keeps changing and there is the presence of humidity too. Moreover, most people get direct sunlight in the bathroom that breaks out its scented chemicals. Keep the perfumes away from sunlight and high temperatures.
Perfume bottles are generally made of specific steel or glass that is made in a way that doesn’t allow air to saturate the perfume which can break the chemicals and tamper the perfume.
Even if the perfume is in its original bottle. If you will shake it; that too, quite frequently. Air can saturate the fragrance and break down the chemicals.
