How Can I Make Perfume Last Longer on My Skin?
We all love our favorite fragrance to accompany us for a long time instead of literally vanishing though thin air as soon as it is applied – making you reapply again and again during the day like we mentioned in the previous post about the different concentrations of perfumes and their lasting time. How long a perfume lasts depends on the nature of your skin. Perfumes generally evaporate quickly if you apply it on a dry skin. If you have a dry skin but want your perfume smell to last longer, you can make your skin moist by the application of lotions and creams. The perfume scent gets soaked up in the moisturizer and lingers for a long time
Another good way to make your perfume last longer is to apply it right after taking a shower. This is because of the fact that the pores of your skin open up while you take a bath due to steam. Once perfume is applied after this, it gets soaked up in your skin due to open pores and simply lasts longer.
It is a general practice to rub the wrists after applying perfume. By doing this, the actual composition of the perfume gets broken and the scent fades quickly. You should apply the perfume on your wrists without rubbing them together to have a lasting effect.
Applying perfume at your body’s pulse points are a very good way to make them last longer for you. Most effective spots for perfume application are your wrists, behind your ears, and on the throat. But remember not to rub the perfume on the pulse points as it will not help at all.
Selection of perfume with strong base notes will guarantee long lasting fragrance. Vanilla, pine, patchouli, and musk are considered to have the strongest notes and are famous to last long. This is another tip to select the right perfume for you if you wish for it to last longer.
