How to make perfumes last longer
How to layer perfume and lotion
Lack of moisture in your skin could be a reason why your fragrance does not last. If you have dry skin, it can actually end up absorbing your perfume quicker than you’d like, causing your scent of choice to be short-lived
Match fragrances for longevity
Layering with a matching scented body cream and then an eau de parfum will help your fragrance last longer, as you are preventing your skin from absorbing
all of the fragrance oils too quickly.
Even applying an unscented body lotion, before spritzing on your perfume, will moisturise your skin and lock in your fragrance better.
This type of layering allows you to intensify the fragrance, extend the hold and sillage, to give you an extra depth and richness of your perfume
Layering perfume with different scents
Scent mixing is simply combining two perfumes together to make an entirely new smell. You could consider mixing two perfumes that have one note in common to create a bespoke scent that is unique to you.
By layering different scents, you can simply create a new fragrance out of your
collection whenever the mood takes. This doesn't always mean spritzing perfumes on top of one another; you may prefer to spray the different scents on your neck and wrists.
When combining scents, it is usually best to apply the headiest fragrance first and then the lightest. This will prevent the stronger scent from overpowering the lighter one.
There is no right or wrong way in fragrance mixing. Everyone’s perception of scent is different, so by experimenting with different combinations, you have the chance to make your own signature scent.
