Someone telling you that you smell great is the best kind of compliment you could get. Your favourite cologne or perfume can make a great impression on ladies. But only if it lasts long enough. When you hustle all day at the office from 9 am to 5 pm, your signature scent tends to fade off.
What’s the point of spending so much money on perfumes if they won’t last long enough?
Here are a few ways to make sure your perfume lasts longer for that great first impression:
1. Stop Spraying It On Your Clothes
If you are guilty of doing so like most people are, correct your ways. When you spray cologne all over your clothes, you not only ruin them but also make the perfume disperse. The airflow causes perfume to disperse and leaves you with a dying fragrance all day. Spray it on your body to make sure it stays put all day long.
2. Rubbing Your Wrists Together Is A Big No-No
Just because you’ve been doing it since ages doesn’t mean it’s the right way. When you rub your wrists together, you’re just diffusing the top notes and leaving the middle and base notes of your fragrance. For a long-lasting cologne, rubbing your wrists to absorb it isn’t the way to go. Let it air-dry for that fresh smell all day.
3. Layer Your Fragrances
We see brands coming up with aftershaves, lotions, creams, perfumes and body washes of the same scent. Ever wondered why? When you layer up your scent with a product of the same scent, the effect is much more amplified and lasts way longer. Use the same scented products as your signature fragrance and you’ll be sorted for at least 8 hours.
4. Spray On Your Pulse Points
If you want your perfume to last all day, you might want to consider specific places to spray it on. The pulse points of the body are the warmer parts of the body which are behind your neck, ear, elbow and knees. These spots generate body heat that helps endure the notes of your scent for a longer period of time.
5. Moisturizer Is Key
Applying moisturizer on your pulse points will make the scent easier to absorb and help carry it longer. Skipping this step can make your cologne disappear within minutes.
These definitive ways will make sure you make a lasting impression. Spritz your cologne the right way and let it do the talking!
