All of us have our routine when it comes time to apply perfume, but are we really doing it right? Are we taking full advantage of our favourite fragrance? Today we give you some pieces of advice so you can be clear about 5 tips to apply perfume correctly and make it last longer.
1. Always after your shower
With the skin clean the aroma will set itself better. A hot bath with open our pores and they will better absorb the aroma. Be careful, of course, to always have the skin completely dry.
2. Hydrate your skin
The perfume will be much longer-lasting if it is applied to well-hydrated skin. If your skin is dry, apply a lotion with a neutral scent so it doesn’t cloud the odour of our fragrance.
3. Find your pulse
The ideal parts of the body on which to apply perfume are the points where there is a pulse. What are they? Behind the ears, on the wrists, inside the elbows, the collarbones or behind the knees. This is because in these areas our body temperature is higher and the perfume evaporates more slowly. Of course, it is much better not to apply perfume on your clothing, because it could get stained.
4. A certain distance
The best distance for applying perfume is 10 cm from your skin. In this way the aroma will be delicately distributed and you will smell great all day long.
5. Don’t bathe yourself with perfume
A few minutes after you apply perfume, it becomes imperceptible to your senses, but that doesn’t mean you didn’t use enough. Others will be able to smell it. So don’t put on too much perfume. You can give yourself an occasional touch-up since perfume tends to last around 6 hours.
Put these 5 tips in practice and we guarantee you that you’ll get the most out of your fragrance. Don’t forget other factors that can affect the durability of the perfume from one person to another like the pH level of the skin, perspiration, eating habits, etc.
