Reader Question: How Can I Get My Perfume to Stay On All Day?
Fragrances last much longer on some people than others because of the differences in our skin (oily or dry) and in our bodies PH levels. To achieve a longer effect, you might want to attempt layering your fragrance. Using the fragrance bath gel, or soap(if the company offers one), then the moisturizer or powder, and then the Eau de Toilette(EDT), Eau de Parfum(EDP) or Cologne, will most often result in a longer lasting effect and more pleasurable experience.
When applying the scent, take into consideration the warmth of your body and make sure you spray it on the right spots. Fragrances last much longer when they are applied on the pulse points such as wrists, behind the ears, base of the throat, temples, inside the elbows, between the breasts or at the back of knees. On these body points, the skin is thinner and the blood vessels are closer to the skin.
As a result, your skin can produce a larger amount of heat, which enhances the smell of your perfume. Also, apply your fragrance low on the body, as well as behind your ears and on your neck, so that the scent rises and you won’t lose it as quickly. A quick spritz on the hair can last a long time as well.
