5 ways to make your fragrance last all day

Making our fragrance last long is what most of us desire. These five tips will help you achieve that.


Sadly enough, our fragrances fail to offer this desire. Maybe they make us smell nice, fresh and unique but they just never last long.

Well, if you've ever wanted to make your fragrance last all day, here's what you should do.

1. Store in the right place

Heat, light, and humidity breaks down perfume and lessens the quality of the fragrance. Rather than store it in the bathroom or any warm place, store in cool places.

2. Spray your perfume on your body, not your clothes

Spraying perfume on your body will prevent the fragrance from staining delicate clothes or jewellery.

Perfumes are best sprayed on your body right after having your bath so that the moisture on your skin will help lock in the scent.

3. Apply it at your pulse point

Body parts like behind your ears, at the base of your throat, inside your wrist, inside your elbow, behind your knee and below your midriff are the best point to apply your perfume. The warmth in these areas helps scents remain strong for a longer period.

4. Moisturize before spraying

Applying fragrance to dry skin is like expecting the soil to retain water after a long period of drought. So, if you’re trying to get your scent to stick longer, apply oily complexions like Vaseline or any scent-free lotion to help lock in the scent.

5. Don't rub the fragrance on your wrist after spraying

When you apply perfume to your wrist and rub together, you force top notes to disappear faster than it should.
