Warm weather makes fragrance disappear quicker, but there are tricks to making perfumes last longer without constantly reapplying them. Usually, it goes beyond just spraying on your body. There are ways to this:
Apply scent effectively
Spraying your perfume over a wider area is more effective than concentrating in small areas. Simply spray about 8 inches away from your skin on pulse points that give off heat and help release the scent. Pulse points are found below earlobes, inside elbows, wrists, temples, neck hollow, on shoulders, behind the knees, back of the neck at the hairline and behind the ears.
Walk into fragrance
Scenting your clothes will help make the fragrance linger. The best way to scent clothes is to spray fragrance into the air and walk into it rather than spraying directly on clothing. This method creates an even dusting of fragrance.
Make sure you’re hydrated
Drinking plenty of water will help maintain the skin’s oil production. Oils in skin help retain the scent. The more hydrated and oiler the skin, the more intense your fragrance will be and the longer it will last.
Keep fragrance out of the sun
Heat, light and humidity all break down your perfume’s powers over time. The bathroom is the worst place to store a scent; instead, keep it in the bedroom. Any fragrance that is kept out of its box and sitting in direct sunlight isn’t going to last more than a few months at most.
Store it smart
Storing perfume in the refrigerator will make it last longer if you don’t plan to use it for some time. Refrigerating fragrance in its original packaging inside a plastic bag gives maximum protection.
Rub Vaseline on your pulse
Another way to make your scent last is to rub vaseline on your pulse points before spraying your perfume to make the scent last longer. The ointment will hold the fragrance to your skin longer than if you were to spray it onto dry skin.
