You don’t moisturize before wearing a perfume

You spray on your clothes

How to make your perfume last for a long time

Here are some ways through which you can make your perfume last for a longer period and smell good.

Moisturize your skin

There’s a direct correlation between your skin regimen and the duration of how long your fragrance will lasts because perfumes doesn’t work well with dry or hard skin. Choose a moisturizer that is unscented and apply it on your skin before wearing a perfume. Or what you can do is, you can use a shower gel or a lotion as well to keep your skin moisturized.

Never rub your wrists while testing a perfume

This is the most common mistake that people make while testing a perfume. They rub their wrists and then smell it. By rubbing the wrists against each other heat will produce and it will change the chemical composition of the perfume which results in either changed fragrance of the perfume or it vanishes after some time.

Apply the perfume at right spots

To apply the perfume at right spot is also very important as it helps the fragrance to stay for a longer time on your skin. Spraying directly onto your hair is a great hack, since your strands are basically a built-in diffuser. Heat enhances fragrance, so it’s best to spray it in places that generate the most body heat, such as the pulse points on the neck and the wrists and your ankles and the backs of your knees.

Store the perfume in a proper place

Perfumes also have an expiry date and once that date has passed they tend to change their color and lose its fragrance. But when they lose their fragrance even before the expiry date then it is because you are not storing it in a proper place or it is exposed to heat or sun. Always store the bottle of your perfume in a cool and dry place and away from air conditioning or heating units.
