They layer their Fragrances: “From shower gels to body lotions to oils, most of your favorite perfumes should come in different forms and by wearing a few of them together, you build layers of fragrance that stick around throughout the day”.
They know where to apply it: “Go beyond the wrists and spritz your perfume onto warmer and often more concealed areas of your body, like your stomach and chest, as well as behind the knees and ears; the body heat here helps to develop the scent so the top, middle and base notes come through fully”.
They never rub it in: “Though it’s second nature to want to rub your wrists together after applying perfume, resist the urge, rubbing breaks down the top notes, leaving you with only the middle and base notes — and less wear time”.
They keep their skin hydrated: “On that note, be sure to moisturize your skin before applying any perfume as dry skin tends to absorb some of the of the scent, making it fade faster; moisturized skin gives the fragrance something to adhere to so it lasts longer”.
They store them properly: “Exposure to heat and humidity breaks down the scent molecules in your perfume, so avoid stashing the bottles in the bathroom and always keep them in cool, dry areas of your home — like the top of your dresser or vanity set”.
They reapply throughout the day: “Since your skin is a living, breathing organ, it can’t hold on to scent indefinitely even though the tips above will ensure a much longer wear but for any life moments that fall outside of your regular nine-to-five (like when you’re going to dinner straight from the office), keep a travel-size sample or rollerball of perfume in your purse for a quick refresh”.
