How To Get More Out Of A Nice Perfume

Posted on

Nice perfumes come with a significant price tag, so when you do invest in one, it makes sense that you'd want to get the maximum enjoyment out of it. Here are some ways to get more out of your nice perfume.

Moisturize Your Skin

If you apply perfume to dry skin, many of the scented compounds won't be as activated as they could be. You'll enjoy a fuller scent if you moisturize your skin before applying the perfume. The oils will encourage different scents to come to the forefront and will also help the perfume scent last longer.

Apply Right After a Shower

The best time to apply perfume is right after you have bathed. This will allow the perfume to somewhat permeate your pores so it will blend more readily with your natural scent. The moisture in your skin from being in the water will also make your perfume last longer.

Apply to Only Four Spots

You can apply perfume anywhere that your veins are close to the skin. These are the best spots because your circulation keeps the skin warmer and helps diffuse the skin more. The base of your neck, behind your ears, on your wrists, on your ankles, and on your temples are places where perfume is commonly applied. But to apply the perfume to all of these spots is excessive. Instead, pick four — such as your wrists and behind your ears. This will give you enough scent without wasting the perfume.

Dab, Don't Spray

Spraying is not the best way to apply a good perfume. You'll lose some of the fragrance to the air, and it will be applied too diffusely to your body. Instead, just invert the bottle to dab a little perfume on your finger, and then touch your finger to the spot on your body where you want to apply the perfume. 

Store it Properly

Heat and light can cause the scented components in the perfume to break down and lose their scent. So make sure you store your perfume in a cool, dry place. Store it in a drawer or cabinet, rather than displayed out on a shelf. If you like to create displays with your perfume, use the old empty bottles rather than ones that are still full.

A nice perfume is a good investment and can last for years if you care for it and apply it properly. Contact a cosmetics store that sells products such as Creed perfume to learn more.
