5 Tips for Making Perfume Last Longer

Many of us struggle to make our favorite scent last all day long, which is one of the most important factors when shopping for perfume. Here are five go-to tips to make your perfume last longer:

1. Apply Perfume to Pulse Points
Did you know that applying perfume to the warmest areas on your body can help the scent last longer? These areas include your wrists, behind the ears, and the base of your throat. So, apply your perfume to these pulse points for a longer-lasting scent.

2. Moisturize Your Skin
Dry skin doesn't hold onto fragrance as well as moisturized skin does. Before applying your perfume, make sure to moisturize your skin with a fragrance-free lotion or body oil. This will help your fragrance last longer and keep your skin soft and smooth.

3. Layer Your Fragrance
To enhance the scent of your perfume, try layering it with other products that have the same scent. For instance, if you have a vanilla-scented perfume, such as The Dream Husband, use a vanilla-scented body wash and lotion to keep the scent going all day long.

4. Store Your Perfume Properly
Heat, light, and air can all reduce the quality of your perfume, causing it to lose its scent more quickly. To keep your perfume fresh and long-lasting, store it in a cool, dark place, away from direct sunlight and heat sources.

5. Don't Rub Your Wrists Together
After applying perfume, it's tempting to rub your wrists together to spread the scent. But did you know that this can actually cause the fragrance to evaporate more quickly? So, instead of rubbing your wrists together, just let the perfume dry on its own.

Keep in mind, a specific scent might not smell the same on you as it does on someone else. Every person's body chemistry, as well as their skin, diet, and environment can impact how a given perfume translates on their skin.
