8 Hacks Bound To Make Your Perfume Last Longer

These hacks will leave your perfume lasting longer

Perfume Hacks

We all like to smell nice all day long, but do you know some perfume hacks you probably didn’t know about?

Sometimes it can feel like your perfume has disappeared the moment you put it on. There are so many factors that cause perfume to fade off quickly but not to worry there are solutions that work.

It is all about knowing where and how to apply your perfume and how to store it so it retains its quality.

These simple hacks would help you increase the quality of your perfume and have you smell amazing all day.

1.  Store your perfume in cool spots

If you want your fragrances to last longer don’t store them in your bathroom or other damp, warm places.  Heat, light, and humidity will break down the perfume and lessen the quality of the fragrance. Instead, store them in cool spots.

2. Try the Almighty Vaseline Hack

Rub Vaseline on your pulse points before spraying your perfume to make the scent last longer. The ointment will hold the fragrance to your skin longer than if you were to spray it onto dry skin.

3. Moisturize your skin first

Moisturize your skin with an unscented lotion before applying perfume. Well-hydrated skin helps lock in the fragrance, making it last longer.

4. Target your pulse points

Pulse points are where blood vessels are closer to the surface of the skin than other areas. To make your perfume last the longest, you need to target your pulse points.

Here are some of the best pulse points to use your perfume on: inside of your wrists, inside of your elbows, neck, and chest area, and behind your knees, ankles, and calves.

5. Do not spray perfume on dry skin

Always ensure that your skin is properly moisturized before spraying perfume. You want the essential oils and goodness to soak into your skin instead of evaporating away, and absorption is always better when your skin is well-hydrated.

6. Do not rub your wrists together after spraying perfume

This is something almost everyone does but the truth is rubbing your wrists together forces the top notes of your perfume to break down and fade faster than it would have if you had simply left them alone.


Instead, simply let your perfume sit and do its own thing, and the fragrance story will remain more intact than otherwise.

7. Get a perfume with long-lasting base notes

Every perfume generally has “notes”, which are the scents that are released consecutively as the alcoholic carrier of the perfume evaporates. It determines how your perfume will smell as time passes, so you’ll want to know about this if you want to get the most out of your perfume.

8.  Spray the perfume in the air and slowly walk into the mist

The spray will distribute evenly across your body and leave you with a hint of fragrance for occasions when you don’t want to smell as strong.
