3 Tips To Make Your Perfume Last Longer

Often found yourself in a midday situation where you can no longer smell the scent you spritz on before you left the house? We totally understand your struggle. 

Apart from knowing that higher oil concentration would generally last longer — for example, Extrait de Parfum contains 20% to 40% oil concentration, while Eau de Parfum has 15 to 20%, followed by Eau de Toilette with 5 to 15% and the least oil concentration would be Cologne with 2% to 4% — there are other ways to enhance the performance and longevity of your scents. Here are 3 tips to cop!

1. Don't Rub Your Wrist Together 

While we recommend applying at pulse points, yes but hold up there's a difference between rubbing and gentle dabbing. Friction will cause the fragrance to fade faster — so don't rub your wrist together, gentle dabbing is the way to go. 

2. Layer With Moisturiser 

Apply an unscented body cream or lotion before spritzing as oily skin will retain the fragrance longer. No body cream? No problem, Petroleum Jelly works just fine. Better yet if you've a complimenting body lotion and fragrance - we recommend our favourite combination: Delina Perfumed Body Cream + Delina Exclusif

3. Store Your Fragrance Properly

We can't emphasise this enough but storing away from daylight or humid bathrooms will prevent the degrading of oil and break down of the fragrance. Store your fragrance in a box, in your wardrobe or your dressing table (away from the windows!).
