Here a few simple tips, from some of the pro’s in the fashion and modeling industry on how to apply your perfume so that it lasts all day!
1. Put It On Early. Give your perfume time to fully develop by applying it at least an hour before going out to give the fragrance time to blend with your own skin’s oils.
2. Layer the Fragrances. Use soaps and creams in the same scent as your perfume. If worn together the fragrance will last twice as long! Most stores will sell a complete line of products, including soaps, creams, and different moisturizers, in the same fragrance(s).
3. Seal the Scent. If you are using a scented moisturizer in addition to the perfume, apply the perfume first. This seals the alcohol in closer to your skin and as it evaporates the cream will “trap” the essence of the perfume fragrance.
4. Start With Your Feet. If you are wearing some cute strappy sandals, heels or open shoes, put a little perfume on the soles of your feet. As you walk, the friction will warm your feet and the scent will float upward. (Note: this does not work for closed shoes.)
Watch Your Jewelry. Be careful to not apply your perfume on or near costume jewelry. The alcohol in it can strip off the coating, or an oily build-up could be left on the jewelry. Put your jewelry on after you’ve applied all your perfume(s).
