Apply a moisturizer: Fragrances don’t it last longer on dry skin so use a moisturizer if your skin is dry as it will help retain the scent for longer. You can also provide a solid base by applying petroleum jelly to your pulse points before you spray the perfume.
Never rub: Most people feel the need to “rub” perfume into their skin, in an attempt to warm the skin and spread the scent. Unfortunately, this only breaks down the perfume’s structure, ultimately weakening the scent. Rubbing your wrists together after spritzing perfume can be a bad idea as it will force the top layer of the scent to disappear faster, making the scent fade faster.
Apply to pulse points: Perfume is activated by body heat. Pulse points located on your wrist are warm because of close the blood pumps near the skin’s surface, therefore making an ideal area to apply perfume. Other warm points on your body include behind the ears, at the bottom of the throat, the inside of the elbow, and behind the knees.
