If you're wondering how to make your fragrance last, you're not alone. Here are a few tips to up your fragrance game.
Fragrance oils blossom when they are warm. Apply fragrance to warmer spots on the body. Concentrate on the wrists, inside of the elbows, the nape of the neck, even the creases behind your knees. The perfume will react with your body temperature and emit scent throughout the day.
Fragrances lasts longer when skin is hydrated, so put it on after you shower or layer it over unscented lotion or oil.
Spray it onto a brush before running it through your hair. Spraying it onto hair directly can dry hair out.
Line your drawers with scent strips. Simply spray your favorite scent on tissue paper or spritz a cotton ball and toss it into your drawer.
THE BEST PLACE TO STORE IT
It's tempting to display bottles on your vanity, but if you want your juices to last, that's not an ideal place, especially if it gets direct sunlight. Keep your bottles in a cool, dry spot away from windows, since sunlight can mess with ingredients. That means the bathroom is out, unfortunately. Better places: atop a dresser away from windows (set them on a cake stand), a cool linen closet, or even a coat closet so you remember to mist after putting on your jacket. Another tip: Keep unopened bottles in their boxes until you're ready to use them: that will extend their shelf life. Once open, most fragrances are good for about two years after their production date.
