Perfumes are an integral part of our personal style. However, one common frustration many people share is their perfume not lasting as long as they’d like. The solution lies in understanding the science behind perfume longevity and the factors that influence it. Here’s your essential guide to making your scent last longer, with recommended long-lasting options from our collection at MyEsans.
1. Understand the Composition of Your Perfume
Perfumes are composed of top, middle, and base notes. Top notes are what you smell immediately after applying a perfume, but they evaporate quickly. Middle notes, or heart notes, make up the core of the fragrance and last longer than top notes. Base notes are the longest-lasting elements of a perfume.
Fragrances like “Inspired by Black Orchid Tom Ford” are renowned for their longevity due to a strong base of rich, dark notes like black orchid, patchouli, and sandalwood.
2. Choose Concentrated Fragrances
The longevity of a fragrance can also be influenced by its concentration. Perfumes with a higher concentration of fragrance oils will last longer. For instance, Eau de Parfum (EdP) has a higher concentration than Eau de Toilette (EdT) and will generally provide a longer-lasting scent.
For a concentrated and enduring scent, consider fragrances like “Inspired by Hypnotic Poison Dior”, a captivating blend of almond, caraway spice, jasmine, and vanilla.
3. Apply Perfume to Pulse Points
Apply your perfume to pulse points – the areas of your body where the blood vessels are close to the skin. These points emit heat, which helps to project the scent across your body and increase its staying power. Pulse points include the wrists, behind the ears, the base of the throat, and behind the knees.
4. Hydrate and Moisturize Your Skin
Perfume tends to last longer on moisturized skin. If your skin is dry, it will absorb the perfume faster, making it fade more quickly. You can increase the longevity of your fragrance by applying an unscented body lotion or a lotion that matches your perfume before applying the fragrance. For example, if you’re wearing “Inspired by La Vie Est Belle Lancome”, consider using a matching or unscented body lotion to enhance the scent’s longevity.
5. Store Your Perfume Correctly
Storing your perfume correctly can also help prolong its lifespan. Keep your fragrances in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight to prevent the scent from breaking down.
