If your perfume has faded by noon or you run through perfumes much too rapidly, follow these expert methods from Hairtrade to make your aroma last all day – without having to spray an entire bottle on yourself. “We like to smell beautiful all day long,” Joanne Dodds, one of the company’s beauty gurus, explains, “but sometimes it can feel like your perfume has vanished the instant you put it on.” It all comes down to knowing when and how to apply fragrance, as well as how to keep it so that its quality is preserved. You won’t squander as much perfume if you know how to get the most out of it.”
Read on to learn how to make quick and easy smell changes to boost the strength of your perfume from day to night.
1 Apply Petroleum Jelly to the Pulse Points
The aroma will last longer thanks to the petroleum jelly ointment. Wrists, neck, inside elbows, behind knees, and ankles and calves are all good places to start.
2 Lightly mist your hairbrush
Don’t apply perfume directly to your hair because the alcohol in it can dry it out. Instead, softly spritz your hairbrush with it or invest in a hair perfume developed exclusively for your locks.
3 Keep it out of the bathroom
Humidity and wetness will degrade the perfume and make it smell weaker, so keep it in your bedroom instead.
Before spritzing, use an unscented lotion. The aroma will last longer on oily skin.
5 Use it at the Appropriate Time
The aroma will be locked in by damp skin, but it will rub off if you get dressed right away. Allow for the smell to dry for a few minutes.

6 Wrists should not be rubbed together
The top notes of the perfume may fade faster due to friction, and your perfume will not stay as long.
7 Make the most of every last drop
Don’t squander those last few, vexing droplets. Instead, blend them into an unscented body lotion to extend the life of your favorite perfume.
8 Understand the Different Perfume Types
Body spray, eau de cologne, and eau de toilette products have a lower concentration of fragrance oils and a more faint scent.
Eau de parfum and extrait de parfum have a stronger scent and last longer.
Carry Cotton Buds with you at all times
Carrying your perfume bottle about can be cumbersome, and you may misplace it. Instead, keep some cotton buds soaked in your fragrance on your person for touch-ups throughout the day.
10 Your Scent Shouldn’t Be Shaken
Perfume is made to be immobile. Shaking the bottle will simply allow air into the bottle, lowering its quality.
11 Keep the box
Perfume should be kept out of direct sunlight since it destroys the oil and breaks down the scent. Keep your fragrances in the attractive boxes they arrived in if you wish to keep them on display.
