Simple Hacks To Make Your Perfume Last Longer

Fragrances are pretty and everyone wants to wear it as long as they can. You might find the duration of the perfume mentioned on the bottle sometimes less than that in reality. But it might be a problem because you are not applying it in the right way. There are simple solutions for this problem. Always go through the instruction written on the back or base of your scent. Try to follow the manuals for some extra support.  With some great tricks, you can make your perfume last longer than ever.

  1. Target pulse points and warm areas on your body when spraying perfume-

There are some special hot points on your body that make the perfume stay bit longer the warm areas indicated might diffuse the fragrance across your body.  The warm parts will trigger the fragrance and will make it last longer than ever. These areas are as follows-

  • Ends of hair
  • Behind the ears
  • Inside elbows
  • Down your back
  • Behind knees
  • Belly button
  • Inside wrists


  1. Don’t store them in damp and warm places-

Many of us keep perfumes in our bathroom but often the humidity and warmness break down the perfume fragrance and the notes, which terminates its intensity and long lasting effect. Your perfume looks better on the dressing table more than that of your bathroom. You will also feel the coolness and a bit of more freshness after you shower.


  1. Rub Vaseline on your pulse points before spraying your perfume to make the scent last longer. 

Don’t use perfumes as a base, always moisturize your skin to make the perfume last longer Vaseline can actually lock the fragrance on your skin? Even if you sweat the layer of Vaseline will protect the perfume from fading away making it last even longer Spray your perfume right after taking shower and before getting dressed. That will make the fragrance stay in place for long and this will prevent the fragrance from staining your clothes.

  1. Apply an unscented lotion before your fragrance.

Sometimes the moisturizer you apply on your skin before application of the fragrance might just spoil the fragrance notes and a blend of the perfume and moisturizer might create a pungent smell. If your lotion is louder then your perfume then the fragrance may not stand for long. Try to go for a fragrance with similar notes as that of your moisturizer. That will not only lock the fragrance but will also help you to boost its flavour.

  1. Don’t dab the fragrance on your wrists after spraying-

 Dabbing the perfume after application makes the top notes and base notes smudge, and the fragrance might not stay long and might not smell the way you want it to. The first scent you smell is the top note, which disappears after a few minutes anyway.

Perfumes can be really exotic at times, you need to pick the one which best suits you. If you’re trying something new which ends up being tremendous, simply use a makeup wipe to get rid of it. Fragrance sampling is like a box of puzzle which may end with various surprises.
