As we discussed in the previous edition, to make your perfume last longer you will want to ensure the perfume can connect with your skin and stay put all day. In this edition, we have yet many of the perfume rules you can follow. Also, we covered how to make your perfume last longer in the bottle!
1. Spray Fragrance onto Your Hairbrush and Brush Through Your Hair.
If you want some extra scent in your hair, you can spray it on your brush and run it through dry hair. Don’t spritz directly onto your hair, as the alcohol in many perfumes can cause damage.
2. Use Matching Scented Lotion and Other Products.
Another way to maximize your fragrance is to buy the lotions, body washes, and other products sold alongside it. Clean, Calvin Klein, Versace, and other popular brands offer matching products to compliment their fragrances.
3. Spray Perfume on Cotton Balls and Put Them in A Plastic Bag to Use for Touch-Ups.
For a scent boost on the go, spritz your perfume on a couple of cotton balls or q-tips and, while they’re wet, place them in a plastic bag and squeeze out all of the air. They should stay moist enough to apply later in the day.
4. Pour the Last of The Used Perfume into An Unscented Lotion Bottle to Prevent Waste.
Make the most of every last drop of your fragrance. If your bottle no longer sprays, add the remaining scent to some unscented moisturizer to create a lotion that smells like your perfume.
5. Line Your Drawers or Wardrobe with Perfume To Subtly Scent Clothing.
If you have a signature scent, you can get your clothing to smell like it as well. Line your drawers with tissue paper that has been spritzed a few times and allow the scent to permeate the fabrics.
6. Store Your Perfume in A Cool, Dark Place.
Fragrance can break down in fluctuating temperatures or humidity. Instead of storing your scents in the bathroom, keep them in a cool drawer away from direct sunlight.
7. Keep Your Perfume in Its Original Bottle.
While this process is somewhat outdated, some people still like to store their perfume in separate, fancy bottles. While this might look sophisticated, it will allow air to saturate your fragrance, which can also alter its chemical makeup.
8. Don’t Shake Your Perfume Bottle.
Shaking the perfume can also allow air to infuse the fragrance and shorten its lifespan.
9. Buy the Right Strength Of Perfume.
Some perfumes will naturally last longer than others, both on the skin and in the bottle. Perfume and cologne are sold in different concentrations, meaning there are different ratios of fragrance oil to alcohol.
