What You Need to Know About Perfume
How to make your perfume last longer?
Perfume should always be stored in a dark and dry place. It’s best to be kept in the packaging or at least in a light-protected place. Sun and daylight significantly affect the composition of fragrances and alcohol, and the same applies to the natural essences contained in the perfume.
Store your fragrances protected from light at room temperature. When it comes to perfumes, the golden rule is: the cooler the temperature, the better! Thus, a refrigerator would be a very suitable place, on order to extend the life of your fragrance bottle.
How do I extend the shelf life of perfume on skin?
How long a fragrance stays present and gives us a very personal touch depends above all on where it is applied. The more blood and the corresponding warmer the skin is at the place where the perfume is wetted, the better, because here the aromas unfold particularly well. The best fragrance points are, for example, the décolleté, the inside of the wrists and the temples. Here, two small splashes of your favorite fragrance are already enough, you should not overdo it.
Dry skin can also be one of the reasons why perfume disappears quickly. Especially after showering or bathing, you should moisturize. But beware: This is how many different fragrances mix together quickly. If you want to put the focus only on the favorite perfume, a lotion from the same perfume range should be used to intensify the scent and make it last longer than just applying the fragrance alone.
The durability of a perfume on the skin always depends on two factors:
Once the connection that the fragrance makes with the skin, that is, the cocktail, which is made of the skin’s own essence (which is individual in each person) and the perfume. Therefore, it can last longer with one person than with another.
Second, a fragrance with strong fixators in the mix will always last longer than a lighter one. Strong fixators are usually the base notes such as wood, resin (frankincense, benzoin etc.) patchouli, vanilla and especially musk in all its variations.
A perfume should be applied in the right places: where the pulse is (wrists,
knees, neck, etc.). Spray now and then, but not too much, otherwise an overdose may occur. If you want a longer fragrance effect, you should use a stronger concentration, such as an Eau de Parfum or a concentrated perfume. Incidentally, a good scent is characterized by the fact that it lasts longer from the outset.
