How to make perfume lasts longer on your body

Some of us wear our perfume in the morning before going to work or doing other activities, however most often the scent of the perfume doesn't last for too long. If you want your perfume lasts longer, make sure to moisturize your skin before spraying the perfume because perfume works well on well hydrated skin.

Perfume also lasts longer on the warm areas of the body. Therefore spray your perfume on your pulse points such as your wrists or behind the ears.

It is also important not to rub the perfume after you apply it, because it will break down the scent molecules of the perfume.

Try to spray a little bit of perfume on the hairbrush, and run it through your hair. This way you will spread a gentle scent while you are doing your activities.

Last but not least, store your perfume in a cool and dry area. Keep it away from direct sunlight.

One tip I heard was put it in the refrigerator. I have not tried it before because I find it weird.

I have to ad any perfume I wear to my backside rather than the front lol. It makes me sneeze! I always give my light spritz to the back of my neck.

Great tips! I am always rubbing my perfume on my wrists after I spray it and often wondered why the scent disappears so quickly - now I know. Thanks for sharing!
