Today I want to share some tips so that you can correctly apply your favorite perfume and make your perfume last throughout your daily work day and thus be able to complement your day and night look. Leave a mark wherever you go!
Store your perfume in a cool, dry place.
If you want your perfume to retain its aroma for much longer, do not store it in humid, hot or brightly lit places like your bathroom. This will cause the aroma of the perfume to lower its quality and evaporate easily. Store them in a closet or on your dresser.

Moisturize your skin before applying your perfume
Prevent your skin from being dry so that the perfume penetrates the pores as much as possible and stays longer. Therefore, it is important that you have your skin completely ready and hydrated to receive the spray of your perfume.
Wet, hydrated skin retains fragrance best, so spritzing your favorite perfume while your skin is still damp will linger in the scent longer.
You can also apply an unscented moisturizer before spraying the perfume, it will last much longer than if you apply it directly to dry skin.
Do not rub
Avoid at all costs rubbing your hands or wrists and then applying the lotion since this action breaks down the molecules of the perfume and hinders its longevity and causes it to last less time.
Spray it on your clothes
If the perfume you always use is the same, you can apply a little to your clothes, this way the aroma will be maximized and it will last longer. But applying it directly to your skin is what will give the special element to your fragrance.
You can also try applying perfume on a napkin and putting it in your drawers so that your clothes retain the aroma.

Apply perfume immediately after bathing
Like everything, when applying perfume you must follow an order, in this case, the order of the factors DOES affect the product. To do this, apply your perfume immediately after bathing and before dressing, this way your pores will be open and your skin will be hydrated and will retain the aroma better. You will also avoid staining your jewelry or delicate clothing.
Believe it or not, but the secret to a long-lasting perfume that lasts all day lies in when you apply it.
Apply it in strategic places
Don’t forget that there are places on the body where the perfume is best encapsulated and they are the parts where the blood pulses the strongest, such as the wrists, the inside of your elbows, neck, waist, behind the knees and ankles. This way your body’s natural heat will keep it longer.
You can rub a little Vaseline on your pulse points where you will apply your perfume to make it last longer.
Apply perfume to your styling brush

Try as many times as you want
It is important that before you buy any perfume (after smelling it) you test it on your skin. Each person has a different pH that causes the fragrance to last longer or perhaps less, that is why it is essential to know how the smell of the perfume reacts with your skin, apply it and after 10 to 15 minutes you will get the final result.
Add more smell
