♥ TUESDAY TIPS ♥ Perfume

tip 17

Hi Everyone

Today tips are all about making your fragrance last longer

The Pulse Points

Pulse Points 1

The “pulse points” are locations on the body where the blood vessels are closest to the skin. These spots emanate heat, which can help fragrance to emanate from your skin into the air. As you wear your perfume throughout the day, it will react with your body heat and continue to emit scent. Apply your perfume to these points – Behind the Ear, Inner Wrists, Cleavage, Base of the Throat, Behind Knees, and the Inner Elbows.


Spray your Perfume instead of Rubbing it

Tip 1

It’s not recommended to rub your perfume into your body, because rubbing can can “crush down” the molecules of your fragrance, making your scent become absolutely different from what it was intended to be on the first place. Instead, spray your perfume, keeping the bottle about 15-25 cm from your skin. A light spray will distribute the odor evenly and will help your perfume stay true to it’s original scent.


Store your Fragrances in the Right Place

Tip 2

Protect your perfume from it’s enemies: humidity, heat and light. Store your fragrances in a cool and dry place, away from direct sunlight. Also, buy your perfumes in spray bottles, it will help to avoid fragrance evaporation and chemical reactions with the air.


 Moisturize your Skin before Applying your Fragrance

 Tip 3

Did you know that perfumes last significantly longer on oily skin, than on dry one? Well, this is a scientifically proven fact. Many people see oily skin as a problem, but when it comes to longer lasting perfume wear – it’s an absolute blessing! Therefore, if you have dry skin, moisturize it before applying your perfume (use a fragrance free moisturizer); it will help your scent last a lot longer.


 Play and Layer your Fragrance

tip 6

Did you know that you can layer fragrances to make them last longer? You can vary the concentration of your scent according to the situation. Experiment, play, create your own custom made perfumes…but remember – don’t layer more than two (or maximum three) scents at the same time, because you don’t want people to smell you in another part of town, when you hardly just went out of the door…Also, make sure to match the application of product to it’s concentration, intensity and heaviness. For example, perfume, eau de toilette, body mist and cologne all have different concentration of essential oils. Perfume is the highest, then goes l’eau de toilette, etc…Keep this in mind!


Spray some Perfume on your Hairbrush

tip 7

If you want to make your perfume last longer, spray a little bit of it on your hair brush and run it through your hair; this way, every time you move or walk past someone – a wonderful scent will be liberated


 Chose Intense Base Notes in your Perfume

tip 16

If you want your perfume to last longer, make sure to chose your scent the right way. Perfume’s base notes or, in other words, base scents are usually the most dramatic and longest lasting. Some of the most commonly used base notes that last for longest period of time: woodsy [eg: sandalwood], patchouli, vanilla, frankincense, pine, cedar, etc.


Hope you all enjoyed
