7 Things You Needed To Know About Perfumes

Somebody told me that when you smell good, you become more attractive too. I think it also adds up to your confidence when you know that you smell fresh even after a long day. It could be the reason why people tend to buy more expensive perfumes instead of just using colognes or eau de toillette. Because the more oil concentrate there is, the longer the fragrance will last. But that is not always the case, because everyone has different body chemistry, to some it may last longer while to you it may only last for couple of hours, and one perfume may smell good to your friend but may totally smell different when you wear it. 

Anyway, there are different tricks you could use to make your perfume last longer on you till the end of the day:

1. Storage is very important- it is important that you store your perfume away from sunlight. Heat, light and humidity has a lot to do to keep the quality of your perfume. Have you noticed that some perfume bottles are coloured, because it helps in maintaining the quality of perfume.  It is better if you could keep your perfume away from the window, and never store it in your bathroom. 

2. Spray your perfume right after you shower- it helps lock in the scent.

3. Apply unscented lotion first before you spray your perfume- a mixture of  fragrances can result in totally different smell that you might not like. Unless the lotion is of the same fragrance as your perfume. The moisturizing benefit of your lotion can also help lock in the fragrance. You can also use vaseline, its occlusive property can help lock in the fragrance. 

4. If you are applying perfume to your wrist don't rub it right away after spraying. It makes the top notes evaporate fast making the fragrance fade away and not last that long. 

5. Some people like spraying perfume directly onto their hair. This can actually damage the hair because of the alcohol content in the perfume. But you can actually spray it on your hair brush and then brush it on. 

6. To know if the perfume suits you, you need to try it on and let it dry on your skin first before deciding to buy. Remember that body chemistry is different for each one and although it smells good on the strip of paper they sampled on you, it may smell different once you wear it. 

7. Do you know you can actually make your clothes fresh smelling like the fragrance you wear. Line your drawer with tissue paper and spray perfume on it. This way your clothes could absorb the fragrance without staining it with perfume oil. 

And don't throw those cards or paper strips they sprayed with perfumes. If you love the scent, place it in your bag and let your bag absorb the fragrance too.
