How to get more from your favourite scent
Fragrances are one of your more big-ticket purchases when it comes to your beauty collection, so you want to make sure you get the most out of every spritz. Here are five ways to make your perfume linger for longer.
Spritz it on your pulse points
We all know that pulse points are ideal for fragrance, but also try the back of your neck, elbow and knee creases, as they heat with movement which draws out the scent. Or, if you dare go lower, wear it on the ribs and stomach because as body heat rises so too will your fragrance.
Opt for notes that linger longer
Mist it over your hair
Fragrance can attach to fibres (which explains why we like wearing our partner’s jumpers so much), so your hair will naturally hold scent. However, to avoid the alcohol in perfume drying your hair, spritz on a brush and then run through.
Layer your scents
Layering products with the same scent (body wash, body lotion and the like) will extend the wear of your fragrance as it reinforces their bouquet. Or try this tip from Smart: “Choose an unscented lotion [such as QV Skin Lotion] and spritz a little fragrance into it before applying.”
