Make your perfume last all day!
Our perfume is like our clothes -we feel naked without it! And even if we douse ourselves head to toe in it, by the end of the day, its scent has invariably faded. Here are a few tips to get the most out of your perfume, and keep you smelling sweet until sundown!
1/ Hydrate your skin
Perfume won’t last as long on dry crocodile skin! You know what you have to do….
2/ ApplyVaseline to the area before spritzing
An invaluable tip for making your perfume last all day: use Vaseline as a primer. Apply a little to the areas on which you generally spray your perfume, and rub it in well. A quick spritz afterwards, and you’re ready to go! A game changer.

3/ Go for a solid perfume
Solid perfume is a type of balm, that you apply just like your normal perfume. It is much more concentrated than standard perfumes, which makes it last longer. Many brands are available in solid form -you may be able to find your own personal favourite.
4/ Spritz your perfume on your hair
Your hair has the ability to retain scents and odours better than the rest of your body -have you ever noticed how difficult it can be to get the whiff of cooked food or cigarette smoke out of it?!
5/ Spray your clothes
Textile fibres also have the advantage of retaining scent, your perfume included. Be careful all the same not to spray perfume on to delicate fabrics.
6/ Choose a real perfume, an “eau de perfume”, rather than an eau de toilette
Eau de toilette is generally lighter than eau de perfume.
