It seems like everyone wants to make their scents last all day long, but to do that you need to know how to apply perfume correctly. Many women complain that their perfumes wear off in no time and they are forced to reapply. The problem is that this can leave you drowning others in your scent because you think you don’t smell good enough.

Secrets and Tips to Making Your Scents Last All Day

Now, you can make your scent last all day long, and it’s really quite simple. A few steps will have you smelling great all day long.

Tips To Apply Perfume

1. Choose the right formula. Perfume is mostly oil and this can have a longer lasting effect, so don’t apply too much. Eau de toilette tends to made up of more water, so it’s lighter and easier to apply, but it might wear off more quickly.

2. Exfoliate and moisturize your skin regularly. This will help to make your scent sit on your skin better and moist skin means longer lasting fragrance for you.

3. Take care where you apply your fragrance. If you’re wearing long sleeves, you may want to skip the application at the wrist and apply some to your cleavage and neck instead. The best way to make your scent last all day is to give it “room to breathe.” This will reduce the chances that you scent will rub off and give it a clear path to your nose.

4. Perfume layering for maximum impact. Start with the body wash, move on to moisturizer and then use the fragrance itself. This will help your scent have a longer lasting effect and keep you smelling good all day long.

Now that you know ways to make your scent last longer, it’s also a good idea to know how to apply your perfume properly so that you get the best results. Many people agree that you should apply fragrances to the backs of the knees and the ankles because scents rise, so, the further down it is, the longer it will last.

How To Apply Perfume Properly

Applying Perfume To Pulse Points

You should consider what you’re wearing, though and what type of fragrance you’re wearing. The rules of application for an eau de parfum are different that those of eau de toilette. For instance, with a perfume, you can make your fragrance last all day by applying to the backs of the knees and a touch at the cleavage or pulse points of the neck. If you’re using eau de toilette, you can get away with applying more – say to your cleavage, wrists and pulse points of the neck.

Ultimately, even if you apply perfume correctly and layer your scents, it will depend on your body chemistry and the kind of perfume you choose, but you can make your scent last longer with these tips.
